Complaint: Callers complained an intoxicated male was bothering customers in front of a restaurant at Fort Steuben Mall, Wednesday. Police located a man matching the description they gave them sitting on a bench in front of the restaurant. He said he hadn’t been drinking there. Larry E. Gasbarro Jr., 48, 770 Brady Ave., Apt. 3, Steubenville, was cited for public intoxication, police said.

Dog fight: A Mingo Junction man visiting someone in the 200 block of Rockdale Road said he let a small dog out in the fenced in yard and the neighbor’s dog “forced its way through the bottom of the shared fence line and snatched” it, attempting to drag it into the other yard. He said he pried his dog loose from the bigger dog, but it was injured, and police noted it was bleeding and had scratch marks consistent with a chain link fence. They tried to speak with the property owner but “he did not disclose any information on the incident and was not forthcoming with any aspect of the investigation, nor would he allow his female companion to speak” to them.

Purloined: A resident in the 400 block of Union Avenue said two kids stole her child’s bicycle, Wednesday. She gave officers a description of the missing bike and police located it in the 300 block of Union and returned it to her.

Gun found: A city resident ended up in police custody after he was caught with a loaded gun in his car during a traffic stop on Wednesday. Police said Thomas Edwards, 42, 117 Ash St., Steubenville, was booked for weapons under disability and improperly handling a firearm in a motor vehicle, while the driver of the vehicle, Jay Lee Barbour, 41, 1430 Oakgrove Ave., was cited for driving under suspension and expired plates. Officers said they pulled Barbour over when they noticed his plates were expired and discovered his license had been suspended. When they searched the vehicle, they said they found the gun “shoved in between the passenger seat and the center console” and said Edwards initially denied ownership, but allege he eventually admitted it was his and said he “found the gun and … someone had shot at him at some point in the past,” police said. Police said there was a round loaded in the chamber with several more in the magazine, and said he has a prior felony drug conviction that precludes him from having or using guns.

Safety first: Police who watched a driver make a right turn without properly signaling her intent spotted “two very young” children who weren’t belted into child safety seats riding in the back seat with their mother, Wednesday. The woman said the kids were under age 2. The driver, Joanna G. Pastre, 22, 1653 county Road 10, Dillonvale, was cited for failure to signal and no child restraints, police said.

Loud: A man in the 1200 block of Claire Avenue reported a disturbance, Wednesday. He told police he’d been arguing with his girlfriend and advised she “was walking up and down the street, screaming uncontrollably at him” before they arrived. He said he wasn’t sure where she went but if they found her, they should tell her “she was not welcome back at the residence.”

Home alone: Police were told an Oak Grove resident in the process of moving left his pit bull in the residence, Wednesday. Neighbors told police the man does come back to feed the dog, but police said that’s not enough. They said the dog cannot be left inside a house that is not being lived in.

Simple solution: A Sunset Boulevard resident told police her ex is recording her while she’s on the phone with him, Wednesday. She said when they’re on the phone “another female will give (him) a recording device so he can record the conversation.” Police told her to block his number so they wouldn’t have further contact.

Loaded up: Employees at Wal-Mart said an adult white male loaded nearly $650 in merchandise into a cart, pretended to scan it at a self-checkout lane and then tried to leave without paying Wednesday. An employee intercepted the thief outside the store, so he ditched the merchandise, getting in the passenger side of a waiting vehicle and fleeing. Employees were able to recover all of the merchandise, and police said surveillance footage had been forwarded to detectives.

Humane: A city resident with health issues who’s going to have to move soon said he wanted to surrender his six cats and one dog to the Jefferson County Humane Society, Wednesday. Arrangements were made to shelter the animals.

Walk the line: Callers reported a man walking in the roadway on Sunset Boulevard at Rosemont Avenue, Wednesday. Police said they found him in the 2400 block of Sunset and reminded him he needs to stay on the sidewalk.
