Police Beat

Corsicana — • Three African American women who attempted to steal more than $3,000 worth of items from Walmart at 8:45 p.m. Monday were foiled when a police officer saw them loading their ill-gotten gains in a vehicle.

Corsicana Police Officer Neely Baggett was on a routine patrol when she saw the women packing the goods into the vehicle and thought it was suspicious. The women, meanwhile, saw the officer and took off, leaving some of the goods behind. In their haste to escape, the women wrecked out on Kenwood and ran away on foot. All the items were recovered, as was the car, and police are currently trying to locate the thieves.

• Car burglaries were reported sometime over the weekend in the 1300 block of North 45th Street; in the 700 block of Lexington; and the 1100 block of Hidden Hills.

  • 3-26-14 Expo Commercial heifers.jpg Curl wins first leg of Commercial Heifers

    Caleb Curl, 13, of Frost FFA, won grand champion of the commercial heifer show, the first leg of the commercial heifer overall prizes. Unlike a lot of the other animal categories, commercial heifers aren't show-things with smooth coats and stardust on their hooves. They're straight out of the pasture, a bit muddy and certainly not the lady-like, pampered creatures that will be led around the ring in the registered heifer show.

  • 11-21-13 Annie.jpg ‘Annie Get Your Gun’ through Sunday at the Palace

    It’s the big musical, the one that makes me think of ‘cast of thousands,’ or in our case, dozens at least, and it’s here only for a few short days. ‘Annie Get Your Gun,’ is Irving Berlin’s candy box treasure of a play about Annie Oakley, the sharpshooter in love with a showman.
    It’s presented by the Warehouse Living Arts Center but because of its size is on stage at the Palace Theatre. Shows will be at 7:30 p.m. tonight, Friday and Saturday, with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee.
