Someone reportedly recognized a woman seen on a security camera video stealing car batteries.

A hungry “kid” wearing dirty clothes reportedly tried to steal coffee and a bear claw.

Officers responded to a report of a customer wearing a blue backpack who allegedly yelled at staff, threatening them, as he got on a bicycle and an employee wanted him kicked off the property.

She was “very confused” about the timeframe of the police visit.

Methamphetamine was reportedly found in a parked vehicle during a search and someone asked for an officer to collect it.

Officers received a report of a man and woman with duffle bags taking items from a truck parked behind an arcade, leading an employee to suspect they were stealing.
