Gene F. Winkler of Marion reported that a Haulmark trailer valued at $5,000 was taken between 12:01 a.m. April 12 and 7 p.m. April 13 from a vacant lot, formerly owned by Marion Advancement Campaign, adjacent to the former location of the Marion County food bank in the 1200 block of E.

Theft, criminal damage

A catalytic converter valued at $2,578 was noticed to have been stolen at 12:30 p.m. April 10 from a 2002 Ford Excursion owned by Tammy R. Smith, 40, Hillsboro, that had been parked four months on the street in the 600 block of E. C St.

Domestic battery

Two and a half weeks after his release from jail in a different matter, Luis C. Perez, 32, Hillsboro, was arrested Thursday night after he allegedly punched his 28-year-old girlfriend in the head and pushed her around a rental home in the 400 block of S. Birch St.

The unidentified girlfriend called authorities at 10:36 p.m. to ask that Perez be escorted from the home.

Upon their arrival, officers were told that Perez had taken her cell phone and begun deleting items and that he had hit her when she attempted to get the phone back.

Officer John Huebert’s characterized her injuries as minor.

Perez was booked into county jail on suspicion of domestic battery. He was released three days later after posting a $2,500 bond.
