POLICE BLOTTER: Stolen vehicle alert leads to pursuit, arrests


Gabrielle Bradford was charged with criminal trespass and making terroristic threats and was also released Monday after posting bond, according to jail records.

Parole violator arrested

Sent Monday morning to a business in the 100 block of West Interstate 20 on a disturbance call, Weatherford police identified one of the subjects involved as Garland Scott Johnson, 45, of Fort Worth. A computer check of Johnson found him wanted on a parole violation warrant. He was arrested and booked into Parker County Jail, where he remained jailed Tuesday with no bond.

Fraudulent check passing

A 72-year-old Parker County man reported someone used his personal information to create checks and pass them at a Weatherford business.

Home burglary

Weatherford police on Monday investigated a reported residential burglary in the 700 block of Palo Pinto Street. The victim told police the burglary, which occurred between Feb. 22-24, was the work of known suspects. Household goods valued at approximately $610 were taken.

Possession of drug paraphernaliaA Weatherford officer working school zone enforcement Monday afternoon at Bill Wright Elementary School reportedly observed a blue four-door passenger vehicle traveling westbound at a rate of speed above the posted speed limit.

The vehicle was stopped in the 700 block of Old Brock Road. During the investigation it was determined that a 20-year-old occupant of the car was in possession of drug paraphernalia. Baker was issued a citation for the offense and a marijuana pipe was confiscated.

More check fraud

A 51-year-old woman said someone used her identity and bank information to create an electronic check and purchase items at a Weatherford retail store in the amount of $370.23.

Tax filing fraud

A 51-year-old woman told police someone used her Social Security number along with her mailing address to file taxes without her consent.

Unnecessary noise

Police around 2:43 a.m. Tuesday were called to a residence in the 700 block of Santa Fe Drive in reference to a loud music complaint. Officers responding said they could hear “a loud stereo playing rock music” from outside the apartment. After much knocking, a white male reportedly answered the door and identified himself as the roommate of the offender. The individual was described by police as non-compliant and intoxicated. He was issued a citation for violation of the city’s noise ordinance.
