Cleveland Police officer Adam West is in charge of an investigation where a juvenile shot another juvenile in the eye with a BB gun.

The incident reportedly occurred during the weekend.

According to his report, West responded to Lee Street where he found a 15-year-old male bleeding from his eye.

Stan Clark of Bradley County Emergency Medical Service said an ambulance was dispatched to the scene to treat, then transport the injured juvenile.

West said the suspect was taken into custody and questioned regarding the incident. He was later released into the custody of a parent, according to the report.

n Bradley County deputies responded to Love’s Travel Center in Charleston late last week after a man reportedly took two small keychains from the store without paying for them.

Deputy Jay Lawson spotted the suspect’s vehicle and made an arrest, according to a report filed by deputy John Davis of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.

Davis said he went to the business and made contact with a manager. Lawson, going on vehicle information provided by the manager, located the suspect and found two keychains in the car driven by Christopher Arroyo, 18.

According to the report, Arroyo admitted to taking the items.

He was taken into custody and booked at the Bradley County Jail for theft under $500.

The keychains were recovered and returned to management at Love’s.

n Another alleged shoplifting at Family Dollar located on Spring Place Road resulted in a getaway by the suspects; however pertinent information which could lead to an arrest was obtained by store officials.

According to a report filed by deputy Cru Ross of BCSO, he went to the store and spoke with management.

A female had reportedly come into the store and taken two polo shirts, a small boy’s T-shirt and a pair of athletic shorts. A male was also spotted in the parking lot prior to the suspect leaving with him.

According to the report, the couple got into a maroon Suzuki with a Tennessee license tag.

Information was passed onto the initial investigators and followup is forthcoming.

The stolen items were valued at $24.15.

n Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting Driver’s License Roadside Safety Checkpoints in Bradley County beginning this weekend.

The checkpoints will be set up in random locations 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 driver’s license laws of the state.

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