Police Blotter: Police Say Burglary Suspect Left Cell Phone Behind

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Police said a burglary suspect left his cell phone behind.

Mark Watson said he saw two white males inside his vehicle at the Hamilton Pointe Apartments. He said they were trying to steal his car radio.

One was described as 6' and slender with tattoos and the other as 5'10". Both were thought to be in their mid-20s.

A witness said he saw the pair take off running. He said one dropped his phone about 20 feet from the vehicle.

Police examined the phone and said it belongs to Brandon Laymon.

Laymon's state ID was called up, and the witness said that was the man at the car.

Police were looking for Laymon.

A female Vine Street resident went out to her 2010 Accord and found the inside was "a mess."

Police said nothing was taken.

It appeared someone had used the vehicle for a free night's stay.

The woman said she is new to this country and the incident makes her afraid to go to her car.

A man told police he parked his 2003 Honda Element at Greenway Farm and returned to find a window knocked out and his backpack gone. One item in the $50 backpack was a $50 flashlight.

He said he had seen an older-model vehicle being driven slowly through the parking lot as if the occupants were scoping out the vehicles parked there.

He said there was a white female driver, a white female passenger and two white male passengers.

Officers were called to check out a vehicle at night at Carter Park on 33rd Street after it was not moved for a couple of hours. 

The occupant said he and his wife had argued and he had decided to sleep awhile until she cooled down.

A Memorial Day Reflection

I wish I could find that combination of words that would capture an inclusive meaning of Memorial Day.  I have attended many Memorial Day programs at the Chattanooga National Cemetery, so many that now they have merged into one memory.  But what stands out is that each year there are more friends and veterans to visit.  Some gave their all many years ago.  And ...

Roy Exum: Keep Your ‘Dirty’ Feed

Mark Twain once observed the difference in a cat and a lie is that a cat only has nine lives. You might remember that when you hear that a group of Tennessee Walking Horse trainers just donated two tons of horse feed “to aid and assist in the rehabilitation” of 55 horses that were rescued from deplorable conditions at a West Tennessee farm. The truth is that the horses were taken ... (click for more)

Both were overall winners in this unique 8K ... (click for more)

Golf and Chattanooga Have Lost Another Oehmig

  It was a classic Father’ Day golf picture. No, not Jack and Arnie and their kids relaxing at Augusta National with the Dogwoods blooming. But the Oehmig men – Lew, the family patriarch, with his youngest son, King, and his then two grade school age sons Henry and John, all crowded into, what else, a golf cart and donning that Oehmig glasses look – round, turtle shell-colored ...
