BATHROOM BREAK IN
Police were called to the Quik Trip, 2428 Hubbell Ave., at 4:30 a.m. on April 3. Upon arrival, two 18-year-old suspects matching witness descriptions were found nearby. After a short foot pursuit, police nabbed a fleeing suspect, who was found to have three candy bars, two packs of cigarettes and two lottery tickets in his pockets, all of which were reported stolen from Quik Trip. The store clerk explained he had been checking the bathrooms when he came back to find the two suspects behind the counter stealing the items. When he tried to stop them, one suspect punched him in the face. The total value of the stolen items equaled $21.
CAUGHT ON CAMERA
Owner of Artistic Concrete out of Casey reported a theft on April 1 after he returned to Hoyt Middle School to find his equipment missing. Video surveillance over spring break shows that another contracted company, Polish Maxx, showed up and moved Artistic equipment to a “staging room” and returned a couple hours later and took the equipment. School Board Patrol dropped off the security footage to the police station shortly after. The stolen equipment had a total value of $10,000.
TRAMPLED BY HORSEPOWER
Police were called to the 2500 block of East Euclid Avenue at 1 p.m. on April 1. A witness said the suspect and the victim were arguing. The suspect got into a white Mustang, and deliberately sped toward the victim and hit him with the car. The victim went airborne and landed on his head. Though the suspect was gone when police arrive, they know he has warrants for possession of dangerous drugs and a five-year prison sentence hanging over his head. CV
