The driver was taken into custody by police and booked.



Feb. 11- Police met with a 9-year-old boy and his mother in regard to a theft and harassment that had taken place. Three men had pushed the boy down and then taken his shoes, backpack, and blue iPhone 5c. Officers are working on locating the three suspects and handling the situation.


Nearly Suspicious Circumstance:

Violent Forgery:
