Rough week for restaurants in the blotter

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

On Nov. 16, Lewisburg Police responded to an unwanted person complaint on 5th Avenue North.


The resident said that Heather Moore had been at the home the previous evening, accusing him of stealing her medication.

At that time he had called officers who spoke with Moore before taking her to a friend’s house for the night.

Moore returned to the home at approximately 6:40 a.m. on the 16th, again arguing that the male had been taking her medication from her.

Again responding to the residence, officers spoke with Moore who reportedly asked for the home to be searched and the male subject to be strip searched for the medication.

According to the report, Moore seemed under the influence of an intoxicant, which she denied.

Agreeing to leave the scene, she was transported to a local motel.

A little before 10 a.m., a disturbance call was received from Shoney’s on Ellington Parkway.

A woman, identified as Moore, had been asked to leave the restaurant after harassing customers and attempting to sell pills to employees.

Moore allegedly threw change at the cashier and threatened “to whoop everyone” in the restaurant before leaving.

Officers found Moore in an adjoining business. She said that she had just been eating and trying to apply for a job at the restaurant.

According to the report, the officer stated that Moore seemed more intoxicated than she had earlier in the morning.

Moore was charged with disorderly conduct and held on $500 bond.

On Nov. 17, deputies were called to the jail after a correctional officer reported that Moore was in possession of drugs in the facility.

Moore had attempted to hide four pills believed to be Adderall and 10 pills believed to be Lorazapam in her hand while being searched.

Warrants were issued for introduction of contraband into a penal facility, possession of a Schedule II drug, and possession of a Schedule IV drug.

Bond on these charges was set at $21,000.

• LPD responded to Subway in the Acres shopping center after reports of a disturbance on Nov. 24.


At the scene, officers encountered Jamie Lee Rummel “going through her belongings on the Subway floor.”

According to a witness at the scene, Rummel had passed out at the counter while paying for food and then was unable to operate the drink machine, at which point she began yelling and kicking the counter.

She refused to leave the store when asked and started throwing her food as well as trash at employees.

After a search, officers discovered a used needle and a Suboxone strip in Rummel’s purse.

She was charged with public intoxication, possession of a Schedule III drug, and possession of paraphernalia.

Bond was set at $6,000.

Lewisburg Police officers responded to West Church Street on the evening of Nov. 21 after a 911 call.


At the scene, they encountered Francisco Matias in front of the residence, noting that he appeared intoxicated and was unable to communicate with officers due to a language barrier.

Initially, officers believed that Matias was locked out of the house, but the homeowner informed officers that Matias no longer lived there and that the two men had a verbal dispute earlier at work.

Matias had come to the home and threatened to get a knife in order to cut the homeowner.

Not knowing if Matias was armed, officers were forced to take him to the ground after he resisted and pulled away from attempts to pat him down.

According to the report, Matias then refused to stand up and as officers picked him up in order to place him in the police car, he spit at one of the officers, striking his face and uniform.

Matias was charged with domestic assault, assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, aggravated trespass, and public intoxication.

His bond was set at $14,000.

• Marshall County Sheriff’s deputies served three warrants on Antonio Lopez on Nov. 22 in the Marshall County Jail.

According to the victim and witnesses, Lopez stabbed the other man in the back with a knife, causing serious injury.

Lopez also picked up a rock and smashed the windshields of two vehicles in the driveway of the residence where the fight took place.

He was charged with aggravated assault and two counts of vandalism.

Bond was set at $13,500.
