Paris Police Officers responded to the 2600-block of Lamar Avenue about a shoplifter. The store clerk advised that a black male had stolen items from the store and left on foot. Officers located the subject in the parking lot next door hiding and attempting to conceal things in the parking lot. Officers detained the suspect identified as Kerry King and placed him under arrest. King had two previous convictions for theft, thus enhancing this charge to a Felony.
Paris Police responded to 125 calls for service and arrested two people in the last twenty-four hour period.
