by: Zak Kerr Staff Writer/Reporter




15000 block of West Colonial Drive. Burglary. An officer met a complainant at his home, where unknown suspects scattered items in his car and stole his wallet from his vehicle via the unlocked front passenger door. The wallet, stolen between 1 a.m. and noon, contained the complainant’s license, debit card and $320. A fingerprint check was negative.


300 block of Largovista Drive. Theft. An officer met a complainant around 8:10 p.m. at his residence about a burglary from his boat. The complainant said he had arrived at 1:30 a.m. when high-schoolers were partying down the street and that he had broken up a fight. He noticed around 7:30 p.m. that his fishing pole, reel and battery were missing. The items’ values and suspects are unknown, but the complainant believes someone at the party was the thief.




800 block of Kimball Drive. Burglary. An officer met a witness around 4:44 p.m. The witness and the residence owner were working on a vehicle in the backyard when a woman called for the owner. The owner checked out front, but nobody was there, so he asked the witness to check the unlocked house. The witness found a known female suspect standing in the living room with an object in hand. She bolted through the front door and left on her bicycle. The owner checked his belongings and noticed his wallet in the living room was missing $60 of the $160 in it. Officers found the suspect, who said she had dated the owner and had only used his bathroom before leaving. She could not explain why she did not go to the gas station down the street. She denied running and taking money, which was not on her. Officers arrested her on burglary and theft charges. She asked police to ask the owner whether he would still prosecute if she returned the money; he said yes.



9400 block of West Colonial Drive. Theft. An officer reported to a mall around 8:08 p.m. about a theft. A food vendor and the Easter Bunny photographer saw an erratic, suspicious, drunken man carrying an Elvis Presley purse and told security. Mall security found the man with the purse eating popcorn at the food court. A sales associate identified the purse as belonging to his store but did not want to press charges. The suspect said he had arrived with the purse but then recanted and confessed. The officer trespassed him from the mall and returned the $42.95 purse to the sales associate.
