• ARREST: A Falls man was arrested following a reported shoplifting incident at 6:10 p.m. Friday at a store in the 1500 block of Military Road. Tyrone Webb, 54, 1158 Ontario Ave., Apt. 47, was charged with petit larceny and false personification after store security allege he removed boots from a box in the store, put his own shoes in the box, put the new boots on and attempted to leave the store. He was reportedly confronted by security and attempted to flee, knocking over a woman customer. Security said two men shopping were able to secure the man, who later identified himself as Emuelle Johnson during interrogation, police said. But his real name was discerned as the investigation continued, police added. The boots were returned to the store, though damaged during the incident.
