Bradley County Sheriff’s Office deputy Tim Bohannon filed a theft report during the weekend for Michael Marlow, who said someone had stolen his motorcycle.

According to his report, Bohannon went to Griffith Drive and spoke with Marlow.

Marlow said he had his 1994 Harley-Davidson motorcycle parked under a pavillion in his backyard.

Marlow said he had the key to the bike with him.

The motorcycle was described as being black with silver and gold flakes in the paint scheme. It also had leather saddlebags attached, according to the report.

Vehicle identification information was entered into the National Crime Information Center computer database.

The motorcycle was valued at $7,000.

Investigation has been turned over to the Criminal Investigations Division.

- A Twin Brooks Drive resident was taken into custody and charged with possession of a legend drug after a county deputy made a traffic stop in the city.

According to a report filed by deputy Cru Ross, Nelson E. Ortiz Cruz, 18, was charged after he was found in possession of an alleged prescription narcotic.

Ross noted the man was “acting very nervous.”

Further investigation revealed Cruz said he had hurt his leg and he had a pill in his pocket.

Ross retrieved the pill from Cruz’ person and then placed Cruz under arrest for possession of a legend drug.

Cruz was transported to the Bradley County Jail where he was booked on the charge.
