DWI: James W. Hedley, 63, 5776 Beach Street, Olcott, was charged Saturday with driving while intoxicated. Deputies said Hedley was pulled over for failing to keep right, as he reportedly crossed over the center line. He was also reported to have been driving 15 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone. Deputies asked for his license, at which point Hedley reportedly fumbled through his wallet but was unsuccessful in locating it, although it was in a sleeve Hedley had in his hand, the arrest report said. Hedley appeared to have glassy eyes and slurred speech and had an odor of alcohol on him, deputies said. Deputies asked if he know why he was stopped, which Hedley reportedly said, "I'm not going to lie, you got me." They asked Hedley if he had any alcoholic beverages to drink, which Hedley said "Yes." When asked how much, Hedley said "Too much." Hedley was arrested on $500 bail.
LARCENY: A Ketchum Avenue woman told deputies Friday she responded to an Internet ad to become a "mystery shopper." She received some information from the company telling her to cash a money order mailed to her for $870, then mail another order to a person for $740. The information said the victim could keep $120 for wages and $10 for mailing the order. Shortly after mailing three of the orders, the victim said she discovered the original money orders were no good and she was out $2,600. The case has been sent to the Criminal Investigation Bureau.
