• On June 6, officers responded to a civil disturbance on Masonic Drive after being contacted by a neighbor from the area. The neighbor advised that a male and female were out in the street arguing. When officers arrived, they observed a male subject in the roadway at James Street near the stop sign and the female in the yard of the house on Masonic Drive. Dispatch advised that the caller stated there was a white Lincoln at the residence where the subjects were arguing. One officer spoke to the male subject while the other spoke with the female. Upon approaching the female, the officer was greeted angrily when she stated, “What the [expletive] are you doing here? I didn’t call you!” The officer immediately detected a strong odor of alcohol on the female identified as Kimberly Covington Shelton, 51, of Masonic Drive. The officer explained receiving the complaint from a neighbor about the arguing. The officer advised Shelton that he was trying to get her side of the story and if she did not talk they would only have the male’s side which could result in her going to jail. Shelton continued in an uncooperative manner, stating only that she had done nothing wrong and this was her house. When the officer tried to speak, Shelton would raise her voice and approach in an aggressive manner, cursing and arguing the entire time. The officer who interviewed the male subject, identified as Thomas Stull Jr., advised that there was an argument between them over the dog being loose. While trying to speak to the other officer, Shelton continued to interrupt and approach the officer. After several attempts to resolve the situation, the officers advised that Shelton had obstructed the investigation enough that they were placing her under arrest for obstruct and delay, and was escorted to the patrol vehicle and placed inside.

• Officers were advised of a vehicular larceny resulting in a stolen handgun. The owner reported the gun missing to officers at about 1:46 p.m. on June 6.
