That doesn’t smell like burned food 

The Athens Fire Department received a report of an alarm going off at a person's residence on Mill Street. 

The occupants believed the alarm went off due to burnt food, according to the 911 call. Before they arrived, the alarm was reset by Luis Medina, who said he was authorized to do so. Medina had not looked to see what activated the alarm. The AFD report said there was no burnt food smell, but a strong odor of “smoking.”

Caught red-handed

While on patrol, APD discovered a theft in progress. Carlos Duwayne Lowry Jr., 55, was arrested for petty theft charges of a stolen Amazon package. The package was returned to the owner.
