A Frontage Road resident reported someone entered his vehicle and took his wallet.

The theft was reported Monday, according to deputy David Harper of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.

Brian Mabry said he had left his wallet inside his unsecured vehicle.

The wallet contained a small amount of cash, his driver’s license and other personal identification. Mabry said he had past issues with someone prowling around his home.

Investigation has been turned over to the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division.

- Health food items were among things taken during a break-in at a local gym.

According to a report filed by deputy Jasper McDonald, he responded Saturday to the Fitness Factory where he spoke with William Stacey.

Craig Mallet said someone had broken into his gym locker and taken personal items.

Stacy listed scales, a computer and boxing gloves as being missing. Mallet reported a weight-lifting belt and straps missing.

Damage was also noted regarding a locker and a deadbolt lock.

Loss and damage to both parties was assessed at approximately $2,600.

- A burglary of an outbuilding at a Parker Drive address was reported, but initially nothing appeared to be missing, according to a report filed by deputy Jeremy Guthrie of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.

Isham Cross said he noticed a window screen had been removed from his storage building and that a garage door opener was missing.

Further investigation revealed the garage door opener had possibly been moved to another location, but it was never located.

Loss was estimated at $150.

- Tennessee Highway Patrol continue to conduct Driver’s License Roadside Safety Checkpoints in Bradley County beginning this week. Troopers are also monitoring school traffic safety as well.

The checkpoints will be set up in random location in the county.

According to THP officials, checkpoints are an effective means of recognizing the dangers presented to the driving public, by motorists who would violate the laws of the state.

All scheduled checkpoints are contingent upon weather conditions and manpower availability.
