Cartersville Police Department was dispatched to Belk about 6:17 p.m. Friday in reference to a shoplifting incident that had just occurred.

According to the incident report, the complainant said she saw a male subject walking around the cologne section before he grabbed some items, walked away and later placed the items in his backpack. When she tried to confront him, he saw her and took off running, dropping a knife in the process. She described the male as being dark skinned, possibly Caucasian or Hispanic, wearing a blue shirt, a dark ball cap and a gray darkish colored backpack.

After leaving the store, he allegedly rode off on his bicycle. The stolen items were fragrance samples that totaled between $400 and $800. The pocket knife, which the complainant said was not used in the shoplifting, was collected and submitted into evidence. The police report stated she would contact law enforcement after obtaining a detailed inventory and a video of the incident from the store’s surveillance system.

While patrolling Highway 411, a Cartersville police officer observed a yellow Chevrolet Cobalt with two males inside. After initiating a consensual encounter, he asked Bartow Dispatch to run the two males and a female by name and date of birth.

Bartow Dispatch advised that one male, who had been in the passenger seat and identified himself as Jeremy Pendrak, had a warrant through Douglas County. According to the incident report, Cartersville Dispatch confirmed the warrant and Pendrak was placed into handcuffs, double locked and transported to the Cartersville Police Department for booking and processing.

The rear seat of the patrol vehicle was checked at the beginning of the officer’s shift and both before and after transport of Pendrak with no illegal substances or contraband found.

Pair of four-footed metal bathtubs stolen

On Friday at 12:06 p.m., Bartow County Sheriff’s Office responded to a burglary report at a residence on Joe Frank Harris Parkway in Adairsville.

According to the BCSO incident report, when the complainant returned home on June 19, she said the lights and television in her residence were on and the storage shed door was open, with the key in the lock. Entering the shed, she discovered two four-footed metal bathtubs she had purchased from Sears and Roebuck in 1954 were missing. She stated whoever had taken the tubs had emptied the contents of them, loose glass bottles, on to the floor of the shed. No forced entry was observed and the complainant said she keeps the key in a concealed location.

Upon further investigation, her grandson revealed he had left her residence unlocked with the lights and television on when he departed earlier. Having observed the key in the master lock of the shed, he believed his grandmother had left the key in the lock.
