MISSING RINGS: A resident in the 1500 block of South Dayton Brandt, Troy, came to Troy Police Department to file a theft report and a deputy met with her there. Sometime within the last month approximately, three of her rings have disappeared from her jewelry box. Nothing else is missing that she can identify. She requested a report be filed so she can make an insurance claim on the missing property.

The radio and battery belonged to a resident on Windmere Drive. The resident wanted to file charges, so Charles was arrested for theft and criminal trespass. Sherry was charged with complicity.
