Police Blotter

Larceny from store

BURTON — On Oct. 14, a man went into the Walmart on Court Street and selected several clothing items from the shelves and concealed them into his shirt and coat pockets. He then attempted to exit the store, passing all points of sale without paying for the merchandise. The value of the stolen property was $ 56.10. The suspect was arrested for retail fraud. He told police he was homeless, unemployed and needed a way to support his crack addiction. He was issued a citation and given a court date on Nov. 5 and released due to overcrowding in the jail. — T. T.

Larceny from auto

BURTON — On Oct. 12, a larceny from an auto parked on Green Pine Drive was reported. The victim said she just started renting the apartment and was moving some small items in around 6 p. m. that night. She retrieved some pots and pans from her vehicles, which was parked directly in front of her apartment. When she returned to the vehicle 10 minutes later, she noticed her wallet was missing. The wallet contained various debit and credit cards.

The victim said she did leave the car unlocked while she took the pots and pans into the apartment. — T. T.

Arrested on warrants

BURTON — On Oct. 13, police were advised a male with a parole absconder was at an address on Royal Oak. When police arrived to the home, the woman who answered the door identified herself as the wife of the man with the parole absconder. When asked if her husband was home, she hesitated and said he was not. An officer told her her husband had a two- count felony parole absconder warrant and she could potentially face charges if she was lying to the officers. The wife then said he was in the house, but she did not know where he was. She got her children out the house and the officers looked for the husband, locating him hiding in a closet in the children’s bedroom on the eastside of the home. He was transported to Genesee County Jail where he was lodged on his warrants. — T. T.
