According to Officer Brink, three tickets have been written for not stopping at stop signs, five speeding tickets have been written, and 13 tickets have been written for illegal parking near the Owens Field airport and the new skate park. At 327 South Beltline, a suspect was arrested for burglary. The suspect has also been charged with nine other burglaries.
