Cleveland Police have issued warrants on a man wanted for violating the Tennessee Sexual Offender registry.

Detective Daniel Gibbs has filed the warrant for Justice’s arrest.

Justice is described as being 6 feet tall and weighing 180 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes, according to TBI’s SOR information. Justice was convicted of “Criminal Attempt to Commit Rape” in February 1978.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is asked to contact the Cleveland Police Department Criminal Investigations Division by calling 728-7311, and following the correct voice prompts.

- Two pit bull puppies were reportedly stolen from their kennel at a Carriage Drive address.

According to a report filed by deputy Matthew Parris of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, Tanner Withrow said he checked on the 7-week-old male and female puppies prior to going to bed Sunday night. The pups were in the kennel.

When he awoke the next morning, the door to the kennel was opened. Two other pups were still in the kennel, according to the report.

The male puppy was described as brown with a white chest and a white line on its face and all four feet were white. The female was black with a white chest and white markings on its hind feet.

Each pup was valued at $100.

- Scrap metal was reportedly the target for thieves in the southern part of Bradley County.

Robert Genovar reported to deputy Ben Clayton that someone entered his barn on Weatherly Switch Trail and took a substantial amount of metal material used in construction of a garage.

A witness noted a light-colored truck leaving the area last week.

The report was filed with BCSO on Monday.

Genovar valued the metal at $5,000.

Investigation is continuing.
