In other matters, Dale Wilcox spoke to deputies Friday about a break-in at Caney Ridge Store. Thieves took two 30-packs of Keystone Light, three 6-packs of Bud Light, a pack of Budweiser and two cartons of Marlboro Lights.

Alisha Smallen-Caro told deputies Thursday that her daughter was on a swing and another child threw rocks at her.

Kimberly Shuma told deputies Thursday that her son was assaulted by a juvenile girl on a playground.

Monica Stark filed a threats report Thursday.

Bailey Poteet told deputies last week that someone used a vehicle without permission and also took several items out of the vehicle.
