Sgt. Ryan Cummings, with Officer Brian Prather, right, takes Joshua Kealohanui Leslie, 32, into custody on a charge of third-degree theft in connection to the theft of a bottle of wine at Thriftway, 621 Main St. The theft was reported at 5:10 p.m. on Friday. Officer Prather located Leslie in the parking lot in the 1300 block of Long Street in response to a report at 5:51 p.m. on Friday that a male was being very aggressive toward a female, who seemed to be trying to get away from the male. The caller had reported the male was swinging at her and charging her like he wanted to body slam her. Sweet Home police arrested Leslie earlier in the day for second-degree criminal trespass at 1540 Main St., Safeway. Police attempted to lodge him at Linn County Jail, but the jail was unable to take him. Leslie was booked, cited and released.
