A clerk at the Spence Market located at 900 N. Spence Ave. reported a theft to the Goldsboro Police Department at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday. A black female left the store without paying for the 12-pack of Strawberry Rita beer and three 40-ounce Colt 45 brand beers she carried out, according to a report. The clerk told officers the female left in a red mini van heading north on North Spence Avenue, but the license plate number he reported was not found in the system.
A single car traffic accident at 7:40 p.m. on North Spence Avenue resulted in a power outage more than three hours later due to Duke Energy having to replace a light pole.
