A resident signed up to get money for putting company stickers on her car. A $2,000 check was mailed and the bank authorized $200 cash from it right away, with the rest payable after the check cleared. The alleged victim then received instructions to send some of the money to one person and other money to another person, which she did. Then the check didn’t clear and she was out the money she’d sent.

 

• Citizen assist.

A mother accidentally locked her three young children and a dog in a vehicle at around noon Friday. An officer got the car unlocked and everything worked out OK.

"thief or thieves got into an unlocked car and stole a man’s Smith & Wesson SD9 VE handgun."

Whether you are pro-gun or anti-gun can we all at least agree that leaving a firearm in an unlocked vehicle is completely unacceptable?

Now a criminal has a gun that he can now use for murder or robberies. Great job, Ingram! Next time why don't you just save the CPD some paperwork and stand outside the jail handing out guns to criminals as they are released.

or

Report it stolen and then commit crimes with it.
It's happened before.

Kind of like a drunk person crashing their car and then running home to report it stolen to avoid a DUI.

Or running into a bar after a DUI accident to create the reasonable doubt that you were not intoxicated until after the accident.
