Thefts of stolen property in May prompt chief to advise lockups

During the month of May, two reports of stolen property have been filed with the Lincolnton Police Department. A golf cart was taken from a residence on Circle Court, and in a second incident, a four-wheeler was taken from a residence on Lillian Sims Drive.

Lincolnton Police Chief Gene Poss has reminded the community to take the proper precautions and lock up any golf carts, ATVS, lawnmowers, or other small vehicles, and to contact the police department with any information concerning these incidents.

Also, several arrests were made by Lincolnton Police Department officers during the past month.

The listed arrests are taken from the limited information in arrest reports provided by local law enforcement officials, and no arrests are left out. An arrest does not imply guilt; criminal charges are merely accusations and a defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty and convicted.

Those listed were Boykin Harris of Lincolnton, charged with probation violation; Gene Derek Lewis of Lincolnton, charged with disorderly conduct; Wille Mahoney of Toledo, Ohio, charged with a DUI and failure to maintain lane; Charkalen Parks of Lincolnton, charged with driving with a suspended license; Jessica Lynn Ray of Thomson, charged with probation violation; Willie Lewis Tutt of Lincolnton, charged with probation violation; and Mario Lara-Camacho of Dearing, charged with driving while unlicensed.

The police department has also announced that it is currently hiring for the position of a full- or part-time certified police officer. Applications can be picked up from the Police Department office. For more information, contact the department at 706-359-7070.
