• THEFT: A Resident on the 3000 block of Falls Street reported to Falls police that sometime between 5 a.m. and 6 p.m. Tuesday someone broke into his house and took several items. The man said he came home from work and found a side door was damaged. When he entered the house he found his fridge open with food pulled out of it. The kitchen cupboard drawers had all been gone through and $300 in change that had been in three jars was gone. A Harley Davidson ring that was silver with gold trim, a 24-inch gold chain with a gold skate pendant, another gold chain and a Fuji S2900 camera were also taken.

• THEFT: A resident on the 2100 block of Jerauld Avenue told Falls police Tuesday that sometime in the past week someone had entered their garage and took two items. Missing from the garage are a "Tapco" brake used for bending metal and siding for houses, valued at $1,500 and a "Tapco" aluminum mechanical cutter valued at $200. The resident said he noticed that someone may have tampered with one of the garage's windows one to two weeks ago but didn't report it because entry wasn't gained. An officer spoke with a neighbor but they didn't see anything out of the ordinary.
