He told them that they do not have an easement or warranty deed that would allow them to use the road.  Gibson also showed the deputies a section of fence that was cut. He noted the fence belongs to another neighbor that does not live in the area.

Shoplifting reported in Appleton City

            On Feb. 17, a St. Clair County deputy took a shoplifting report at Casey's General Store, Appleton City. A Casey's employee reported two females entered the store and ordered food. One female paid for the food while the other female removed a micro USB cable from the container. The employee stated the female took the item from the store without paying for it. 

            The deputy went to a residence on East Third Street, Appleton City, and met with one of the females explaining why he was there. The female went over to a vehicle and retrieved the stolen item and gave it to the deputy. A request for prosecution was signed on behalf of Casey's General Store. Formal charges are pending.
