Suspect caught stealing food from business


Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the Town Trolley, 6700 Lima St., Huntsville, about 10:20 p.m. Wednesday in reference to a break-in.

They spoke with the owner, Lisa Dickerson, who said she and her husband had caught a white male subject who had broken into the business’ outdoor walk-in cooler. She said the suspect was about 25 to 30 years old and had been wearing a headband flashlight.

The suspect had attempted to steal a variety of food items, including pork tenderloins, a block of cheese, a pan of roasted chicken and a container of coney sauce.

The owner said she asked the suspect to put the items back in the cooler and he complied. However, he then he took off in his car, striking the rear bumper of her husband’s vehicle in the process.

He reportedly drove onto State Route 117 and then turned onto State Route 274.

Deputies continue to investigate the incident.

• Steve Pope reported Tuesday that two suspects entered his son’s residence at 308 N. Miami St., Quincy, and stole a firearm.

Mr. Pope said he arrived at the residence about 7:15 a.m. and heard the sounds of someone running inside the trailer. Then he saw two male subjects flee the home from a back window and then run into a wooded area.

In addition to the missing firearm, Mr. Pope found that TVs at the residence had been unplugged and a video gaming system and other items were in a duffle bag by the front door.
