Newton Police Department
• Lisa R. Coonts, 49, and Jessica L. Morris, 26, both of Newton, were charged with fifth-degree theft after officers observed a female wearing all black, holding a flashlight, and rummaging through clothing at 9:15 p.m. Monday at 721 E. 10th St. N. The two told officers the clothes belonged to a friend, but the owner said they didn’t know who they were. They were both taken to jail.
• Kenneth J. Lamb Jr., 41, of Newton was charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, cited for leaving the scene of an accident, and failure to have insurance, and was found at fault for an accident after officers were dispatched at 5:25 p.m. Friday to East Third Street South on a report of an accident. Lamb said he was turning into a driveway when a vehicle driven by Ashley N. Rasler, 20, of Newton began to pass him. She said Lamb had pulled to the side of the road since Lamb’s turn signal was not initiated. Lamb then turned and struck Rasler causing an estimated $2,000 in damage to his own car and $1,800 to Rasler’s vehicle. Lamb left the scene and was found a block away. He was released to appear in court.
