• Theft of property at 530 South Donaghey Avenue (The Edge Apartments club house/business office).

• Lost or stolen ring during amateur gymnastics at 2915 Dave Ward Drive (Gusano’s pizza restaurant and bar).
Late Friday night and early Saturday morning a woman took off her $3,500 engagement ring and gave it to her fiancé to hold while she did flips and cartwheels and such. Then somebody decided that the fiancé needed to try a cartwheel, and he gave the ring to another woman to hold, and then this woman decided to do a cartwheel and gave the ring to somebody else. And so on. By the end of it nobody knew who was supposed to have the ring or where it was at or why.
• Bicycle thievery at 1900 block or Erback Street.
A resident reported on Friday that three youngsters were rolling down South Davis with what appeared to be her stolen Huffy beach cruiser bicycle. The report doesn’t say how the three were riding the beach cruiser (one may have been on the pedals and the other on the handle bars). The beach cruiser was later found by the Gulf station on Dave Ward Drive, apparently abandoned after the chain slipped off the sprocket.
