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.

Jim Teal went looking for his stolen fork lift and found it at PSC Metals in Chattanooga.

He said it was taken from his business in Rossville.

PSC officials said it had been transported by Yates Towing.

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

He then loaded it with assorted sandwich meats and cheese valued at $40.

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.

He then wheeled the cart out, along with a small child, while bypassing the checkout counter.

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

A female on Windsor Street said someone stole her $2,000 air conditioning unit from outside her home.

The thief cut the power cord and the copper tubing, then removed the entire unit.

Officials of Shields Electronics on Jersey Pike found two damaged air conditioning units at a warehouse.

One unit was cut and dragged to the side of the building.

The copper was removed on both units.

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.
