The Atlantic Police Department reports the arrest Monday of 65-year old Linda Barber. The Atlantic woman was taken into custody on  a charge of 5th degree theft (Shoplifting). Barber was booked into the Cass County Jail.

And, officers with the A-PD investigated a non-injury accident Monday evening. Officials say vehicles driven by Collin Baker and Jason Watson, both of Atlantic, were headed east on 7th Street and approaching the stoplight at the intersection with Plum, when Watson stopped for traffic in front of him. When Baker failed to see Watson’s car had stopped, his vehicle hit the rear of the Watson vehicle, causing $3,000 damage to both vehicles.

Baker was cited for Failure to Stop in an Assured Clear Distance and Violation of an Instruction permit.
