• Robert Lee Hodge, 37, of 122 Bryant Road, was arrested Saturday on felony drug charges in connection with a larceny call at Walmart, where loss-prevention personnel identified him as the suspect in the theft of a men’s jacket valued at $20 on Oct. 2, police records state.

A probable-cause search in the store parking lot led to Hodge being charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell or deliver, due to a plastic baggy containing a white residue and two glass smoking devices allegedly being located in a bookbag behind the driver’s seat of the 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe involved.
