Left it behind

At 3:45 p.m. Wednesday, a suspect reportedly tried leaving a department store in the 100 block of East Interstate 20 without paying for a $560 vacuum cleaner. When confronted, the suspect reportedly took off running, leaving the vacuum cleaner behind.

Vehicle burglary

At 6:50 p.m. Wednesday Weatherford police were called to the 1800 block of South Main Street where a 62-year-old man said someone entered the bed of his 1997 Ford pickup and stole a bag of tools, valued at $100.

Drug arrest

Police were called Wednesday evening to a business in the 800 block of South Main Street to check on a man in the restroom. There police found Christopher Dean Morris, 26, of Weatherford. The officer determined Morris was intoxicated in public and issued him a citation. However a subsequent search allegedly revealed two bottles of prescription pills in containers not properly marked. He was booked into Parker County Jail on a charge of possession of dangerous drugs and public intoxication, where he remained Thursday evening under bonds totaling $2,199.

Someone inside

Counterfeit bills

Police were called Tuesday evening to a store in the 2600 block of East Bankhead Highway where a clerk said a male attempted to purchase merchandise using two counterfeit $20 bills. The male was refused service and left in an unknown car. The bills were confiscated by police.
