Police said a traffic stop yielded two brothers, 23 grams of marijuana, a gun and a ski mask.

Lorenzo Wallace and Antonio Hicks were in a silver Toyota Camry with no license plate.

A search turned up the green leafy substance in a Mason jar as well as a 40 caliber handgun.

There was an outstanding warrant against Wallace, and both faced new charges.

At the Dollar General on Rossville Boulevard, a black male wearing a black shirt and white shorts helped himself to a garbage bag.

He walked out without bothering to pay.

The thief left in a black Buick with Virginia tags.

A white male wearing a ball cap and a gray T-shirt loaded up a cart with baby formula at the Bi-Lo in East Brainerd.

Bi-Lo officials said the same man had done the same thing at another unit.

Cassandra Carchedi said she put an ad in Craig's List for house sitting.

A Floria Smith responded, saying she was moving to Chattanooga and was willing to pay $800 per month for the service.

The would-be house sitter was sent a check to cash and was told to keep her $800. She was to send an additional amount to a furniture company.

Police said one reason to be suspicious of the deal with that the zip code on the check only had four digits and another clue was that New York was misspelled.
