Milton blotter: 'For sale' vehicle stolen from parking lot

Feb. 01, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

Reports from the Milton Police Department provided the following information:

A vehicle parked to sale was stolen from a barber shop along East Main Street in Milton. Investigators believe the incident happened sometime between Saturday night and Sunday. The victim told police she left the car with a "for sale" sign in the window. She discovered it missing Monday morning.

Investigators believe a limited number of people had access to a key for the vehicle. The 1998 Jeep Cherokee is valued at $2,500.

RING: A $500 ring was taken from a patient at the Rose Terrace Health and Rehab Center, according to those representing the nursing home patient. The ring was last seen on the patient Jan. 21. The facility is located along Hidden Brooke Way in Milton.

DRUGS: A 31-year-old man from Milton was arrested Jan. 19 and charged with misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance. The arrest followed an officer becoming suspicious when a man walking along in the 400 block of Florida Street started taking shortcuts through area yards. The man then refused the officer's demands to stop. He eventually dropped his coat and walked toward the officer, who later discovered a package of suboxone pills in the man's coat.

BOAT MOTOR: Somebody stole the motor from a Glenwood Road resident's boat. The incident happened sometime between 6 p.m. Jan. 19 and the following afternoon in the 1400 block of Glenwood Road. The motor for the two-person boat is valued at $400.

WARRANT: A 37-year-old man from Milton was arrested Jan. 18 and charged with a misdemeanor warrant for failing to appear. Court records indicate the warrant stemmed from a previous animal cruelty case. The arrest came as officers responded to a reported disturbance in the 700 block of Mason Street. The argument concerned a lost bracelet.

CAMERA: A 53-year-old woman reports somebody stole a camera from her house sometime between Nov. 1, 2012, and Jan. 1. She suspects it might have occurred as a cleaning service tended to her residence. The camera was valued at $350.
