On March 23 an auto theft complaint was filed at an Eatonton Road truck stop after a man reported that someone had taken his 2000 Freightliner Century truck.
The man told police that he left the truck unlocked at 9:30 p.m. at the truck stop and when he returned at 8 a.m. his truck was missing. The man said he had a spare key hidden under the hood. The truck is valued at $10,000.
On March 21 two reports of counterfeiting were filed, one at an Eatonton Road car lot and another at a health food store. According to reports, a woman reported that she had cashed her paycheck at a liquor store and then paid on her car loan at the Eatonton Road car lot with a $100 bill she had received from the liquor store.
The woman said she was later notified by the car lot that the bill was counterfeit. A co-owner at the lot reported that a local bank had reported that the bill was counterfeit when it was attempting to record a deposit. On the same day a woman at an Eatonton Road health food store reported that a black male with a heavy British accent used a $100 bill to purchase $20 worth of fish oil. The woman said when she attempted to deposit the money she also was informed by the bank that the bill was counterfeit.
On March 16 a warrant was issued for the arrest of Stephanie Charesse Oliver, 19, Madison on shoplifting charges after a woman at an Eatonton Road department store alleged that Oliver took one bottle of Clean and Clear face wash, one bottle of Body Fantasies perfume and one package of plastic dental tooth picks without paying for the items. The items are valued at $10.25. The store employee said she captured the alleged thefts on video tape. She also provided officers with a description and tag number of a blue Ford pickup truck in which Oliver was a passenger when she left the store.
