Numerous thefts over last few days keep lawmen busy

MOULTRIE — Thefts made up the bulk of recent law enforcement calls, including thefts from stores in Moultrie of cigarettes and compact disc players.

In one incident, Murphy’s Express, 505 Veterans Parkway, reported Sunday that a woman walked out of the store with a carton of Newport cigarettes valued at $50.

An employee told police that a white man and a black woman came in the store at about 11:35 and asked for the cigarettes. The man gave the employee a $20 bill and the woman grabbed the carton and walked out of the store.

The man said he needed to get more money from his truck, and he did not return after he walked outside.

An accused shoplifter was apprehended in another theft case, with Freddie Floyd English, 58, 512 Seventh Ave. N.W., charged Monday with theft by shoplifting.

Rose’s Department Store, 215 Sixth St. S.E., reported that a man, later identified as English, walked out with two compact disc players and a pair of sunglasses concealed under his jacket.

 When an employee followed him outside he dropped the merchandise and ran toward Fifth Street Southeast.

An officer picked English up in the 400 block of Fourth Avenue Southeast.

In other thefts:

• Wayne Anderson, 700 block Sixth Street Southeast, reported Sunday the theft of a wallet containing $50 and other property worth $20.

Anderson told police that a friend had been driving his car earlier in the day and that man’s brother brought it back.

When Anderson checked in the car his wallet was gone and the man did not answer him when he asked about it.

• Kyle Martin, 52, Tifton, reported Sunday the theft of copper wire from a house in the 1000 block of Sixth Street Southeast.

• Raymond Lee, 58, Moultrie, reported Monday that copper wire was stolen during a burglary of a house in the 300 block of Second Street Northeast.

• Shamona McBride, 200 block Second Street Northwest, reported Monday a burglary in which appliances valued at $317 were taken.

    Another holiday has come and gone as the month of July counts its days and we once again focus our attention on the home landscape. Curb appeal and maintenance requirements play an important role as choices are made and plants are installed into our landscapes according to plans. Any failure in responsibility towards understanding and satisfying maintenance requirements will definitely result in the potential loss of the new plants.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
