Cops Corner 07.23.15

by: Zak Kerr Staff Writer/Reporter




10000 block of West Colonial Drive. Theft. At 8:17 p.m., an officer met a big-box store employee who had seen a man take $88.92 of men’s cologne to a different area of the store, unwrap six packages of cologne and then hide the cologne in his pants. He tried to exit like that, but the employee stopped him and took him to the office with intent to press charges. The suspect said he wanted to sell the cologne to make about $85.


Clarke and A.D. Mims roads. Drunken driving. An officer stopped around 9 p.m. behind a car with a Montana plate in the southbound left lane on Clarke Road. That car went over the median and hit an inactive railroad crossing signal in a U-turn before straightening north on Clarke. The officer held a traffic stop and smelled beer when the driver lowered her window. The driver initially did not answer, but the officer noticed an open beer can in the center console while the driver got out to answer. While the driver used the officer for balance, she said she was homesick and misjudged the turn. She said she had taken anxiety medication and drunk vodka after waking, gone to a local bar and then purchased her half-consumed beer from a convenience store. While in the rear of the patrol car, she pushed off from the driver side to the passenger side, causing a cut from a screw to open on her left knee. She refused medical transport, saying she was drunk, not injured. Her blood-alcohol level at 11:10 p.m. was 0.296.
