Responding to numerous calls of a fight behind Zatta's on Washington Street, officers were informed it began with the theft of a purse with a witness chasing the alleged thief down the street and fighting with him. Upon arrival, officers found Herbert Jones, 26, Laura Avenue, and Harry Copper Jr., 44, Pennsylvania Avenue, behind the bar, Jones scuffed up and without a shirt. Jones told officers that he and Copper were stealing a purse and began fighting over it, while Copper said that was not the case, he had no idea who the other man was and he chase him down after seeing him steal the purse from a car by the library. Copper said the man took off running when he pulled up beside him and asked whose purse it was. While taking Jones into custody, he reportedly admitted having a needle in his pocket, and officers found a needle and crack pipe in a cigarette pack. Jones was charged with receiving stolen property, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of drug abuse instruments.
