  • A man was arrested for breaking into vehicles after a witness immediately reported the incident to Dormont police. Police responded to the 3000 block of Texas Avenue at 12:30 a.m. for a report of a man—later identified as Tyler McIntosh, 20, of Castle Shannon—breaking into a vehicle. Officers followed footprints in the snow, and found McIntosh, who matched the witness’s description of the man, in the 2900 block of West Liberty Avenue. Officers drove the witness to West Liberty Avenue, where the witness again identified McIntosh. He was charged with criminal mischief.
  • Police responded to the 1300 block of Illinois Avenue at 11:20 a.m. for a harassment complaint. According to the police report, a man told the officer that another man had been sending him harassing text messages.

Why would someone think that he could just walk into a store on West Liberty Ave and grab cartons of smokes and get away with it?
