Justin M. Carter, 25, Smithfield Street, was charged Saturday with theft after an employee of Dollar General, Walnut Street, reported seeing him conceal a package of T-shirts and leave the store without paying. Officers reported finding Carter outside the store, where he turned over the T-shirts and apologized for taking them.
After Jodie L. Chappell, West Ninth Street, reported Saturday her boyfriend came home drunk and was beating on the windows and being loud, officers arrived just before 4 a.m. to find Christopher E. Ingram, 30, same address, on the porch. They reported Ingram said, "Yeah, it's about time you get here," and kept yelling over Chappell as they tried to speak with her about what had happened. Finally, officers reported, Ingram jumped up and dared them to arrest him. They complied, charging him with disorderly conduct/intoxication.
