Three peo­ple were ar­rested and two 17-year-old girls were is­sued ci­ta­tions af­ter they were found drink­ing at a ho­tel.

Brian Lott, David Ken­dall and Carly Mitchell were ar­rested and two 17-year-old girls were cited for un­der­age drink­ing by a Cov­ing­ton po­lice of­fi­cer just be­fore 3 a.m. Thurs­day.

Ac­cord­ing to a report from the Cov­ing­ton Po­lice De­part­ment, a po­lice of­fi­cer re­sponded to the Hamp­ton Inn on Lochridge Boule­vard in ref­er­ence to an ar­gu­ment.

A se­cu­rity guard at the ho­tel told the of­fi­cer that he re­ceived sev­eral com­plaints from guests about loud mu­sic in one of the ho­tel rooms.

The se­cu­rity of­fi­cer vis­ited the room and ad­vised Lott to turn the mu­sic down, but the Lott re­port­edly told the se­cu­rity of­fi­cer, “You can’t tell me what to do” and shut the door.

The se­cu­rity guard went back to the of­fice where he re­ceived more com­plaints and then de­cided to call po­lice.

The po­lice of­fi­cer ap­proached the room, which re­port­edly had mu­sic play­ing and spoke with Lott and Ken­dall. The of­fi­cer told the two that they needed to leave the prop­erty, but then no­ticed that there were sev­eral open al­co­hol bot­tles and beer cans in the room and de­cided to ask for IDs.

Mitchell and two ju­ve­nile fe­males were found to be un­der the age of 21. The of- fi­cer asked the three if they had been drink­ing and they all replied that they were.

The two ju­ve­nile girls — de­scribed as still in high school — were picked up by their par­ents at the Hamp­ton Inn and is­sued ci­ta­tions for con­sump­tion of al­co­hol un­der 21.

Mitchell was charged with con­sump­tion of al­co­hol un­der 21 and Lott and Ken­dall were charged with fur­nish­ing al­co­hol to a mi­nor. The three were taken to the New­ton County Law En­force­ment Cen­ter.

Miss­ing lap­tops on aisle 2

Two peo­ple got away with two lap­tops from Walmart on Wed­nes­day. A Cov­ing­ton po­lice of­fi­cer re­sponded to the Walmart lo­cated on In­dus­trial Boule­vard in ref­er­ence to a theft of com­put­ers. An as­set pro­tec­tion as­so­ciate told the of­fi­cer he and an­other em­ployee no­ticed two com­put­ers had been stolen from the com­puter dis­play area in the elec­tron­ics de­part­ment. The as­set pro­tec­tion as­so­ciate re­viewed the sur­veil­lance video, which showed a large black male cut a se­cu­rity cord con­nected to the lap­tops and then place a lap­top down the front of his pants and an­other lap­top in the purse of a small white fe­male who was with him. Af­ter con­ceal­ing the lap­tops, the pair walked out of the store and then got into the back of a gold Chevro­let Im­pala. The lap­tops were de­scribed as a Dell note­book and a Sony 14 Ul­tra- book. The to­tal amount of the items was an es­ti­mated $1,466.

Snap into a Slim Jim

A gas sta­tion store clerk told po­lice that a young male stole sev­eral items and ran away from the busi­ness on Tues­day night.

A Cov­ing­ton po­lice of­fi­cer re­sponded to the Race­way lo­cated on U.S. High­way 278 around 8 p.m. in ref­er­ence to a male wear­ing a gray hoodie and blue jeans shoplift from the store and run to­wards I-20. The of­fi­cer looked around the area but was un­able to lo­cate the male so he re­turned back to the busi­ness and talked with the store clerk.

The store clerk told the of­fi­cer that the male en­tered the store and seemed suspi- cious so she paid at­ten­tion to him as he walked around the store.

She re­port­edly saw the male pick up at least three Slim Jims and leave the store with­out paying for the items.

The of­fi­cer re­viewed a sur­veil­lance video which showed the male go to the cookie aisle of the store to look at items and then to the front of the reg­is­ter where the clerk re­port­edly saw the male pick up the Slim Jims.

The male then walked to an­other isle, picked up gum and candy and then left the store.

The store clerk told the male that he needed to come back and pay for the items, but the male told her he didn’t have any­thing and then ran from the store.
