Store employees reported a misdemeanor larceny of three pair of jeans. The reporting person said a man left the store with the jeans without paying for them. An officer confronted a man in the parking lot, and the report said the man pulled a knife on the officer. A chase ensued, and the man reportedly threw the knife under a car when the police care pulled up.

The jeans, valued at a total of $89.97, were recovered. Bond was set at $50,000.


Goldsboro police have made two arrests in connection with a larceny reported in November from the Subway Restaurant on West Grantham Street.

Patsy Ann Parks of Running Deer Circle, Dudley, and Tomekia Delores Tyson of Canal Street, Goldsboro, were both charged with embezzlement. Both women were placed under $1,000 bond.

Parking lot mishap

David Martin of Lynn Avenue told Goldsboro police his foot got caught up in the pedal while he was pulling the car around to help his wife load groceries, and he bumped the cart and knocked her down.

The couple had just finished shopping around 2:50 p.m. Friday at the Food Lion store at 219 N.C. 111 S. His wife, Barbara, was taken to Wayne Memorial Hospital where she was treated and released. No charge was filed.

Dog blamed

Marlow Tate of Adams Street said his dog crawled onto his lap and caused him to swerve to the right while driving down Olivia Lane Friday afternoon. The 1997 Cadillac he was driving bumped into a parked car, and that car bumped into the rear of another car.

The Cadillac sustained $3,500 damage. The first parked car, a 2002 Chevrolet owned by Marsha Linton of Virginia Beach, sustained $5,000 damage. The second parked car, a 1999 Ford owned by Jeanne Rhone of Olivia Lane, sustained $500 damage.

Tate was charged with failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.

Robbed at pen point

Kelton Reid Sutton of Walters Drive told Goldsboro police that at 2:30 a.m. Friday a man wearing a red jacket and red shirt used an ink pen as a weapon and forcefully took $5 from his pants pocket. He said the robbery occurred at a hotel at 801 E. U.S. 70. He said about four hours later the same man went to his room and beat on the door. Police arrived and charged Donnie Cox, 19, of Wayne Memorial Drive, with common law robbery and communicating threats. Bond was set at $5,000.
