According to the report, a loss-prevention officer said Appelhans was seen on Feb. 7 entering a dressing room with a box containing a $150 coffee maker. When she left the dressing room, she then placed the box back on the shelf and left the store.

Loss-prevention personnel checked the box and learned it was empty, but Appelhans already had left the store. At 3:30 p.m. on Feb. 19, loss-prevention personnel saw Appelhans return to the store and take several items of clothing into a dressing room.

Smear Campaign

Franklin, 50, of the 200 block of Lincoln Avenue, Big Rock, was charged at 11:45 a.m. Feb. 16 at , with disorderly conduct after police received a report of a man smearing feces on a building in the 800 block of West Main Street. Police said there has been an ongoing dispute between workers at the store and nearby property owners about dog feces in the parkway. The property owner who reported the incident said he had a security camera installed as a result of the dispute, and video showed Franklin using a hockey stick to flick dog feces into his yard, and that some struck his building.


Getting Student Credit

A credit card taken from a student's missing coin purse was used to purchase gasoline at two Geneva gas stations, Geneva police reports said.

A neighbor called a Geneva mom to say she found her daughter's purse at around 8:30 a.m. Feb. 12. The neighbor later told police she had found the purse while she was walking on Glengarry Drive. A cosmology card had been left in the purse, which was how the neighbor knew who it belonged to.

The Geneva mom initially thought her daughter had left the purse on top of their car and lost it when they drove off. But later that day, the mom was notified by her bank that there were unauthorized transactions on her credit card.

At around 3 p.m., the mom e-mailed the Geneva Police Department saying her daughter remembered leaving the purse inside their vehicle at around 6 p.m. Feb. 11, when the vehicle was parked in the driveway of their home in the 1100 block of Brentwood Place.

The mom discovered that someone had removed several items from the coin purse, including two credit cards, a debit card, a $30 gift card, a driver’s license, a school ID and about $30 in cash. At around 3:40 p.m., she e-mailed police with a list of transactions made on the card. Two of the transactions were from Fuller’s gas station and another from Geneva Shell. The police report categorized the crime as a burglary.
