Police Report 6-20-12


June 7

Danny Staton Jr. of 207 Palomino Road, White Hall, told Patrolman Robert Rogers his locked 2006 Chevrolet pickup truck was stolen from the parking lot of Cranford’s Fresh World, 8503 Dollarway Road, while he was in the store.

The officer’s report quoted Staton as saying he had recently broken up with his longtime girlfriend, who was listed as a co-owner of the vehicle. Rogers said he ran a registration check on the vehicle and determined it had been retitled and a new license tag issued in May in the former girlfriend’s name.

The officer was able to contact the woman on June 8 and she acknowledged having possession of the truck, adding it was placed in storage prior to her leaving the state temporarily, Rogers wrote in his report.

On June 13, Rogers said, the woman met him and returned Staton property, including several firearms, which had been in the truck.

Teer said he made an inquiry at a Pine Bluff business and learned the cell phone had been sold or traded earlier at the business.
