Theft from a car, Sprague Road: On September 17, police were dispatched to an address in Sprague Road regarding a vehicle break-in.
A comer spoke to the caller, who said she had left her vehicle unlocked in the driveway.
The next morning, she returned to the vehicle to find the glove box open. The woman reported that a thief took $20 cash, a wallet, a driver’s license, two debit cards and three credit cards.
The appellant canceled his cards; however, a debit card had been used.
There are no suspects. The police are investigating.
Substance Abuse, I-77: On October 1, police observed a silver Saturn Vue with no markings traveling south on I-77.
After changing lanes, the Vue rolled for a while before coming to a stop. That’s when the officer saw an expired temporary tag that had been clogged with privacy tint and road grime.
The officer approached the driver, who recognized him from a July incident in which he was arrested with a warrant.
In addition, the officer smelled marijuana. The driver said he had just smoked a cockroach.
During a search of the Saturn, the officer found a satchel (never a good sign) with pills, marijuana, and a digital scale.
The man was arrested for drug use and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also cited for driving without a valid license and expired plates.
