Police said a pair of beer thieves were nabbed across the street from where the beer was stolen.

Employees of Dollar General on McCallie Avenue said a couple took a 12-pack of Bud Lite Strawberry worth $12.40, then ran out without paying.

They were seen going into a house at 2007 McCallie.

Police knocked on the door, and Brittany Holland and Marcus Fuller were inside. They admitted their guilt.

They were cited for theft under $500.

Personnel of Belk at Northgate Mall said Tracy Goodwin selected eight shirts worth $716.

Police were called to 210 Laws Ave. where there were two men on the front porch.

One identified himself as Arlandis Suttles. He gave a birth date.

An officer noticed a weapon in his left front pocket.

He said his real name is Desmond Deonte Ford, 23.

Police said he is a leader of the Gangster Disciples.

He was arrested on a weapons charge as well as theft and criminal impersonation.
