POLICE BLOTTER: Weatherford police report burglaries, thefts

Check fraud

Weatherford police received a report from a 54-year-old woman in Georgetown that checks in her name in the amount of $190 and $180 were passed at a store in the 600 block of Palo Pinto Street, despite the fact she said she has never been in Weatherford.

Unattended child in vehicle

Police at 4:49 p.m. Tuesday received a report of a child left unattended in a car in the 100 block of East Interstate 20. The officer said six minutes after arriving and finding the vehicle, a 29-year-old male approached and said the vehicle was his. He was cited for leaving a child under the age of 7 in a vehicle while not attended by a person at least 14 years of age for more than 5 minutes.

Drug arrests

Police said about 5:49 p.m. Tuesday a vehicle was stopped on suspicion of illegal activity. The driver, Catrell Kenard Dawson, 32, and the passenger, Kristi Maruine Walker, 33, were arrested and charged with  conspiracy to possess a controlled substance. They were booked into the Parker County Jail, according to police.

Seeking suspect

Weatherford police and Weatherford College police are seeking a known suspect connected to a burglary on campus.

Officers were looking for the suspect Tuesday night in the 1000 block of South Waco Street and around 11:34 p.m. reportedly saw him riding a bicycle. An officer gave chase on foot, but the suspect refused orders to stop and was able to elude police.

Criminal mischief and theft

Sometime over the weekend someone entered multiple buildings in the 1400 block of Holland Lake Drive and caused an estimated $930 in property damage while also taking various medical supplies valued at $40.

Home burglary

A resident in the 800 block of West Lake returned home about 1 p.m. Monday and saw two males in their late teens or early 20s carrying laptops to a blue GMC pickup parked across the street from his house. He said he went into his home and found two laptops and a tablet, with a combined value of $3,250, and a jar containing about $150 in cash missing.
