Police Blotter

Corsicana — Corsicana Police Department

• Someone dropped a baggy of cocaine in the parking lot of the East Side Housing complex in the 900 block of East 13th Avenue, and which was found and turned into police around 12:30 a.m. Friday.

• A home was burglarized sometime Thursday or Friday in the 3200 block of Kenwood.

• A routine traffic stop resulted in an arrest for possession of marijuana around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 1300 block of North Beaton St.

• A car wreck March 3 in the 800 block of West Seventh Avenue in which a car tried to turn left in front of another car resulted in a nasty wreck. The car that made the illegal turn then left the scene without trading insurance information. However, the driver left behind the car’s bumper, which had the license plate attached. Police went to her house the next morning and issued the driver three tickets: Failure to yield, driving without a valid license and failing to leave required information.

• A car that veered off the road managed to cause a miniature trail of destruction around 10:30 p.m. March 14 in the 1900 block of North Beaton at that S-curve in the road near the convenience store at Bragg. The car left the road and drove through two front yards, then hit a parked car, which hit a second parked car pushing it about 12 more feet into a tree. The driver was cited for failure to control speed.

• Two guys took a car for a “test drive,” but then didn’t bring it back. They left around noon March 11 in the 1000 block of West Second Ave.

• A report of theft from Gander Mountain, 3301 Corsicana Crossing, resulted in an arrest, but one of the would-be thieves, who was taken into custody for outstanding warrants, was also charged with trying to bring a prohibited substance into the jail.
