CLEVELAND POLICE ARE looking for information on this woman, who is a person of interest in the theft of a computer from a local hotel.

For the second time in several months, the guest computer from a local hotel was stolen.

According to Detective Bill Parks of the Cleveland Police Department Criminal Investigations Division, a white female informed a desk clerk at Holiday Inn Express that her car had broken down and she needed to use a hotel computer.

The theft occurred about 9:30 p.m. last Tuesday.

Parks said the suspect appeared to be pregnant. Her image was captured in a video security image retrieved for evidence by CPD officials.

Parks also noted the suspect apparently stuffed the Asus all-in-one computer under her jacket and left the premises after the clerk had walked away from the front desk.

The computer was valued at $1,200.

Anyone able to identify the suspect is asked to contact Parks at the CPD at 559-3321.

Goodwin was able to obtain serial numbers for the vehicles.

Information was passed along to Edwards at the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division.

The trailers were valued at $7,500.

- Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting Sobriety Checkpoints in Bradley County within the next few weeks. Seat Belt Safety Checkpoints are also being scheduled in Polk County in the coming weeks.

The checkpoints will be set up in random location in the county.

According to THP officials, checkpoints are an effective means of recognizing the dangers presented to the driving public, by motorists who would violate the laws of the state.

All scheduled checkpoints are contingent upon weather conditions and manpower availability.
