VEHICLE THEFT: At 5:43 p.m. officers were dispatched to the 800 block of Martin Street in reference to a vehicle theft. The complainant stated the trailer belonging to him had been taken from the parking lot of the business on Monday evening, as he is a contractor and is currently working for Omni Fiber installing fiber wire cables for the internet access throughout the City of Greenville. Video footage shows a late model white Ram attach the trailer to their vehicle before driving away from the scene.

THEFT: At 5:15 p.m. officers responded to a theft at the 1500 block of Wagner Avenue in reference to a shoplifting complaint. Jolene Dillman “skipped scanned” certain items in the self check-out and proceeded to bypass all points of sale without paying for the items. It was reported the store had caught her stealing from the store in the past but did not report it. She was issued a citation for theft, and at 9:14 p.m., theft prevention called to drop the charges. They did this due to the charges not meeting the business policy to press charges. Dillman was contacted and the citation has been voided.

THEFT: At 11:35 a.m. officers were dispatched to the 200 block of Birt Street in reference to a theft of a firearm. The victim stated several months ago, he had to serve a commitment to the Darke County Jail for a prison offense. Prior to beginning his commitment, he placed his compound bow and his Heritage Rough Rider revolver on a top shelf in his garage for safe keeping. He advised all the ammunition were still on the shelf with the box the revolver had been in, but he does not know who would have known where the firearms were being stored. At this time there are no suspects.

A 14 year-old male student was escorted to the main office due to him smelling of marijuana. Upon the male’s arrival, he was instructed by the assistant principal to turn out his pockets.
