Police Blotter: Woman Regrets Loan Of Cell Phone

Wednesday, January 8, 2014

A woman who was stopped at the Mr. Zip on Apison Pike said she thought nothing of it when a woman asked to borrow her cell phone.

A moment later a dark gray Infiniti backed up and the woman jumped in - without returning the phone.

The victim said the driver was a white male with tattoos on his arms.

The vehicle had Florida tags.

The clerk at the Kangaroo on Shallowford Road said a black male and black female came in early in the morning.

The man selected two 32-ounce beers. However, the clerk told him she could not sell them after 3 a.m.

The man put a $10 bill on the counter and said, "Do what you gotta do."

Then he walked out with the $2.69 in beer.

The female then walked up and asked if the man had left any money. She saw the $10 bill still on the counter and took it as she left.

The couple - and the beer and the $10 bill - departed in a silver Jeep Liberty.

Police patrolling Youngstown Road found a "very, very intoxicated" Jeanette Hanks in company with her ex-husband, Clifford Hanks.

She claimed he had removed $250 from her handbag.

Police said Clifford Hanks, who denied the charge, seemed "lucid and clear-headed."

An officer gave Ms. Hanks a ride home after she said she had no transportation to Tremont Street.

She was accompanied by her pet "Chia-Pug" and some groceries, which included a large bottle of what appeared to be alcohol.

Shame On The Housing Authority - And Response

With Chattanooga and other cities around the nation struggling to find solutions to chronic homelessness it's cruel to evict families likely with children over a fight.   When you evict the adults you're also evicting any and all children in the household.  Intelligence would dictate looking for a root cause. Compassion would dictate looking for alternatives. Both ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Buy Ping Golf Clubs

As we set the charcoal, ice the drinks and prepare for Memorial Day, the first thing on my mind is to ask any golfers within my reach to consider buying and playing with Ping-brand golf clubs. Pings are made in America but there is a little something else you need to know, as told in an email I received earlier this week. I regret I do not know the author: * * * “On Monday, ...
