Couple teams to take expensive whiskey

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

It took two to steal a $400 bottle of whiskey from Joe's Liquors, North Main Street, on Saturday, police said Tuesday.

A man and woman entered the store, removed the Hennessy bottle's box from the shelf and placed it behind a display, according to video surveillance shown to police. As the man lured the clerk to the rear of the store, the woman took the whiskey to a minivan and left while the man made a purchase and walked away.

Both were described as white, and the man had a brace on his right knee and limped, police said.

Drug charge

A man admitted he had a marijuana joint in his clothing as he was questioned by police Monday night.

Carter O'Neal Gant, 45, of East Lane Street was sitting at a table with two other men outside a Jennifer Circle home Monday night, police said. Officers had been called due to a fight not involving Gant.

Police began questioning the men after spotting marijuana on the table.

Gant was charged with simple possession of a schedule VI drug and posted $500 bond.

A utility trailer was taken from the back yard of a Horse Mountain Road home inside Shelbyville during the day Monday.
