Suspect just can’t stay away: At 5:26 p.m. on March 7 in the 28000 block of Pacific Highway South, police became aware of a problem when a suspect, who was already in jail, was making calls to a victim from jail.

The guy just wanted a sandwich … or two: At 9:13 a.m. a.m. on March 6 in the 2000 block of South 320th Street, officers responded to the Subway location when an employee reported a suspect was stealing sandwiches. When police arrived, the female was distraught and said she did not steal anything. When the male suspect saw police, he ran and hid in the bathroom for an unreasonable amount of time.
