Cleveland Police Department officials investigated the possible attempted theft of a picnic table from a residence. The table was recovered nearby.

According to a report filed by deputy Tracy Maxfield, Carol Looney said she noticed her picnic table missing from her backyard.

Looney said she found the table later, and it was across the creek from her house. The table was heavy and it would have taken more than one person to pick it up, according to Looney.

There was no value placed on the table, which was recovered.

- Jewelry was taken and several items damaged during a reported burglary at a Dalton Pike residence.

Deputy Robert O’Daniel filed a report for Delia Lopez-Ruiz, who said she returned home July 4 to find her front door ajar.

Lopez-Ruiz stated the residence had been locked prior to her leaving.

A television, Sony PlayStation and other items had been damaged and a jewelry box containing a number of rings, earrings, necklaces and charms was taken.

The jewelry and damage to the property exceeded $4,000, according to the report.

- Bradley County Sheriff’s Office has scheduled DUI Checkpoints to be held in several undisclosed locations.

Checkpoints will begin Friday evening, according to officials at BCSO.

Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting Driver’s License Roadside Safety Checkpoints in Polk 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 laws of the state.

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