Returned to the scene of the crime: An employee working at a store in the 11100 block of NE 8th St. contacted police when she realized that three women in the store were suspects in a robbery of $6,000 worth of jewelry the day prior. They had been caught on surveillance video.

Peeved over parking: A resident of an apartment complex at 530 Lakemont Blvd. was upset when he found a car parked in his parking spot.
