City Police

Greencastle City Police officers investigated a pair of theft cases Thursday.

Officer Elsiana Crosby was called to the Walmart store on Indianapolis Road at 7:29 p.m. on the report of an attempted shoplifting.

As a result, Lonell Bradley Perry, 26, Indianapolis, was lodged at the jail on preliminary charges of theft, false identity statement, false informing and on a Marion County warrant for theft.

Perry allegedly tried to steal $86.89 worth of merchandise, including a backpack, hair trimmer and hair care products.

He was reportedly stopped by Walmart personnel as he tried to walk out of the store without paying, Officer Crosby reported.

• At 4:19 p.m. Nicki Marie Davis, 30, Greencastle, was arrested by Capt. Chris Jones at a Crown Street residence on a theft charge.

Davis, who was lodged in the Putnam County Jail, reportedly took a wallet off the counter at the Greencastle Maytag Laundry laundromat at Bloomington and Apple streets.

Her alleged actions were caught on surveillance cameras, police reported. That led to Davis being found and the wallet and cash recovered, police said.

Sheriff’s Department

Putnam County sheriff’s deputies responded to a pair of recent traffic mishaps.

• At 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Brian A. Hubbard, 23, Roachdale, was southbound on County Road 600 east in a 1991 Ford F150 when he hit a deer.

Damage was estimated at less than $1,000. The vehicle was towed.
