Blotter: snake rings and arrows

Failure to yield

A 20-year-old male was arrested for stealing a yield sign at 10:20 p.m. Saturday after a passerby witnessed him drive up in a pick-up truck, pull off the yield sign and throw it into his trunk.

The yield sign was in front of Genuine Tattoo Company at Dodds and Walnut Streets.

A Bloomington police officer spotted a pick-up truck with a yield sign tucked in the trunk 18 blocks from the tattoo shop.

After the officer stopped the driver, the suspect said the sign was sitting on the road, and that he had picked it up.

Snake on the loose

A $30 viper ring was reported stolen from Cactus Flower on Kirkwood Avenue at 9:50 a.m. Friday. Shortly after, the customer returned to the store, placed the ring back on the counter and walked out.

The slings and arrows

A pastor reported that someone had shot an arrow through the awning of Grace Fellowship Assembly of God on South Washington Street at 2:38 p.m. Thursday. There are no known suspects at this time.
