• INCIDENT: Employees of a business on the 6600 block of Walmore Road reported finding a suspicious bag on the property Thursday. While searching for a sewer manhole cover along the north edge of the business' property, the men said they found a backpack just inside a fence surrounding the business. One of the men opened the bag and deputies said it contained screwdrivers, pipe cutters, large gauge wire cutters, a pipe wrench, a knife and a roll of duct tape — all tools commonly associated with metal theft. Deputies said it appears the bag was dropped over a barbed-wire fence or was left behind by someone leaving the property. The employees were unaware of any missing metal at the facility. The bag was taken by deputies.
