Blotter

A sports store inside Golden Triangle Mall decided not to press charges against a person who allegedly stole a $160 pair of shoes from the store Thursday night, according to a police report.

A 911 caller from Hibbett Sports told police Thursday that a group of about six people entered the store and that one person left the store without paying for a pair of shoes.

By noon Friday, the case was inactivated because the store declined to press charges against the person, a police spokeswoman said.
