Seven thefts were reported yesterday (Tuesday), with one put on hold by an investigating Sunnyside police officer when the suspects advised they were putting a new alternator into a car, not removing parts.
The other six thefts didn't have such a happy ending.
Three of the reports came from Sunnyside businesses. US Cellular reported that money was taken from that business, and police were given the name of a suspect. That report was made at 10:52 yesterday morning. At 1:26 p.m. Safeway reported an 8-year-old girl was being held, accused of shoplifting. Mirastar reported to police at 1:27 p.m. that gas was pumped but not paid for, allegedly by a suspect who left in a vehicle with the license number A97025M.
At 2:33 p.m. a resident in the 900 block of East Decatur Avenue reported his leaf shredder was stolen, and at 7:12 p.m. a woman reported the purse she had left in a cart after shopping at Wal-Mart was not there when she returned for it.
From 9:03 a.m. yesterday until 6:42 a.m. this morning, police also investigated four animal problems, an assault, a family fight, one report of fireworks and one of graffiti, an intoxicated person, a juvenile problem, report of a lost wallet in the parking lot of Wal-Mart, one report of loud music, a missing person, a runaway juvenile, a suspicious person, a traffic problem, a trespasser, five reports of vandalism and a violation of a no-contact order.
They also served two arrest warrants, provided an extra patrol and received four informational calls.
