Local law enforcement agencies are following up on several theft reports, including two from Ricardo's Tortilla Bakery, according to reports released Wednesday.

Brownwood police were dispatched Monday to the Brownwood bakery at 904 Booker or a report that someone stole $10 to $20 from the tip jar.

Police returned Tuesday that a male had stolen the entire tip jar.

In other incidents:

• Police were dispatched Tuesday to Walmart, where they arrested Linda Lewis, 66, of Santa Anna, on a theft charge. A police report indicated grocery items with a value that barely exceeded $50 — meaning the suspect was arrested on a Class B misdemeanor rather than being cited for theft under $50 — were listed on the police report as items that were stolen.

• Deputy Jim Cornelius took a report of the theft of a wedding ring valued at $800, and the owner suspects his former girlfriend in the theft. The owner told Cornelius he located the ring in a local pawn shop, and the pawn ticket indicated his former girlfriend's uncle had pawned. it.
