Two females were observed by the store manager using scissors to cut packaging on the boxes of two wristwatches, valued at $10 each.

The manager called for police assistance. When officers arrived, the manager had detained the two females. A third person, a male, left the store before police arrival and is believed to have taken and/or disposed of the watches. The act was captured on store surveillance video. One of the suspects admitted to the theft.

At 1:08 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 26, Officer Aaron Acree stopped a vehicle on Main Street for an equipment violation. During his roadside investigation, Officer Acree determined the driver had no valid license or insurance on the vehicle. The driver also admitted to smoking marijuana prior to operating the vehicle. Subject failed two FST and was arrested.

The driver, Gene Cowan, 23, of San Angelo, Texas was charged with DUI - first offense; no operator's license; no insurance; and rear license plate not illuminated.

His passenger, Christopher L. Rechtfertig, 21, of West Plains, Mo., was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and public intoxication after a small bag of marijuana was located behind the driver where Rechtfertig was sitting.

During this traffic stop, police received a complaint of unruly subjects at Dailey's Market. Sheriff Ray Burnam responded and located an intoxicated subject in a vehicle and another passenger who was wanted out of Clay County. They were a traveling party to the vehicle stopped by Acree.

Officer Acree arrested Casey P. Goodman, 21, of Hereford, Texas and charged him with alcohol intoxication.
