G'view Dairy Queen hit by theft

GRANDVIEW - The theft of money from the Grandview Dairy Queen was among four reported thefts that police responded to between last Friday and Sunday.

The money stolen from the Dairy Queen, located in the 400 block of W. Main Street, was over a period of four days during this month, police said, but it was reported this past Friday morning at 9:16 a.m.

Grandview police stated that the money was apparently stolen by an employee.

As of press time, police did not have a suspect in the case.

A second theft, reported at 12:38 a.m. on Saturday, was of a 1997 white Dodge Intrepid stolen from the 700 block of N. Fourth.

The vehicle, found eight hours later in Mabton with the windows shattered, was unlocked with the keys in the ignition at the time of the theft. No dollar amount of the damages was available at press time.

Later last weekend, at 5 a.m. on Sunday, a white 1990 Buick Century was reported stolen. The vehicle owner waved down a Grandview police car at Second and Elm to report two women stole his car.

Officers said the man met the women in a Granger bar, then brought them back to a motel in Grandview, where they reportedly stole the car.

There was also a reported theft of a gasoline drive-off from a gas station in the 600 block of East Wine Country Road, at 12:26 p.m. Sunday but the report was later proven to be unfounded.

In other activities, Grandview police responded to:

- A reported burglary at 12:21 a.m. today. Thieves reportedly entered an unlocked house in the 200 block of Avenue E and stole family jewelry. The dollar value of the stolen items was not available at press time.

- An assault at 9:12 a.m. on Saturday was reported in the 700 block of Crescent Drive. Police say the suspect drove by the residence and yelled at the younger brother of the victim. When the victim responded, he was pushed to the ground, at which time police were called to the scene.

At press time, a subpoena for a citation of fourth degree assault was being issued to the suspect.

Altogether, Grandview police responded to 67 incident reports between 9:16 a.m. Friday and 3:18 a.m. today.
