A pit bull at a house on Pinehurst Avenue did not deter a burglar.

The dog ended up with the worst of the bargain, suffering cuts and puncture wounds to the rear legs. The injuries required stitches.

Timothy Jones said the intruder kicked in the front door and stole a 38" TV and head phones.

David McCrobey said he witnessed the mother of his child whack his bedroom window with a baseball bat.

He said Candace Williams pulled up in a black GMC Yukon and began blowing the horn. Then she got out carrying the bat and strode to the window before shattering it, he said.

Police observed the broken window.

Ms. Williams, 27, was arrested on a charge of vandalism.

At the Bargain Hunter on Hickory Valley Road, management said two white males entered the store.

One grabbed a 50" TV and ran out.

Both got into a late model Dodge Ram. The tag came back to a woman living on Swan Road at Old Fort, Tn.

David Colette said he parked at the Stringer's Ridge Park trail head on Spears Avenue for 40 minutes.

When he returned to his truck, he saw that someone had forced open a sliding glass door and gotten inside.

They took his wallet, backpack, IPhone, $100 in clothes and debit card. The thief quickly bought $185.90 in items at three nearby stores.

Christine Johnson said her ex-boyfriend posted nine nude photos of her to an internet site, where tell-all former boyfriends post such pictures.

She said she let Sean Sinch take the pictures, but did not agree to have them posted.

She said she is asking the website to take them down.

Police said a large number of lottery tickets are missing from the counter that is accessible to the public at the Kangaroo Express on Lee Highway.

Officers were told that during the night a white female stole many tickets from the counter.

She returned the next day and got more through the day, it was stated.

Police said another white female and a black female may also have been involved in the missing lottery tickets.
