Monday night at 11:16, a traffic stop for defective passenger side break light uncovered the driver, Anthony Fletcher, who gave officers false information. The traffic stop was in the 200 block of SW 7th Street. Fletcher claimed his birth date was 1973, but a photo comparison from Collin County revealed it was 1972. He was from McKinney, and Collin County wanted him on an outstanding Parole Warrant. Police took him into custody for the Parole Violation Warrant and Failure to ID Fugitive Intent Give False Info. Collin County did not confirm their warrant. Fletcher was transported to the Paris Police Department and booked in without incident.
At 1:58 Tuesday morning, officers responded to the 2700 block of Lamar Avenue about a burglar alarm. Store surveillance video showed two slim unidentified individuals walking on the east side of the building. The taller individual threw an object breaking the glass in the front door, and entered the store, followed by the other. Both subjects wore black masks that covered their face from the nose down. They knocked over display racks holding watches and vape cigarettes. Officers found a large piece of concrete inside, and the store rep estimates they were missing 50 vape cigarettes, totaling $1,000.00. The burglary is under investigation.
The Paris Police Department responded to 66 calls for service and arrested three people on Monday (Feb 27).
