MS. teacher arrested for having sex with student http://www.privateofficer.com
A fired Bay High School teacher arrested Friday allegedly had sex with a teenage girl who sheriff’s deputies believe was one of his students.
Steven Seth Tadlock of the 4700 block on Gibson Road in Ocean Springs was charged with having sex with a minor, according to Jackson County Sheriff Mike Byrd.
The sheriff said that Tadlock, 25, was accused of having sexual relations with a 17-year-old girl in November.
Byrd said that the sexual incident allegedly took place at Holland Trailer Park off of Ocean Springs Road, where Tadlock lives.
“He was in a position of trust,” Byrd said. “School officials trusted him; parents trusted him; students trusted him.”
Tadlock posted $10,000 bail and was released shortly after his arrest by county Judge Larry Wilson.
Bay-Waveland School District officials terminated Tadlock last week.
As a faculty member for two years at Bay High, Tadlock taught Spanish. He sponsored school-related clubs and assisted with the band, according to the school’s Web site.
Superintendent of Education Kim Stasny said in a written statement that Tadlock was fired “for violation of school policies.”
“The allegations presented to us were of such a nature that we were required to notify local law enforcement agencies.” Stasny wrote. “This matter is under investigation by authorities and the school district is cooperating with the police department in that investigation.”
Stasny added that until the investigation is completed, “all personnel rights are exhausted, no further details can be provided by the school district.”

Taste for lobster lands man in jail http://www.privateofficer.com
It happened at Bally’s Hotel/Casino, located at 1900 Boardwalk, around 10 p.m. Tuesday.
Security at Bally’s said the clothes on 38-year-old Anthony Jones looked especially bulky when he was seen leaving an employee kitchen.
That’s because, they said, he had 91 frozen lobsters stashed in them and his backpack.
Police said Jones had an outstanding warrant from Egg Harbor Township.
Jones was charged with theft, criminal trespass, burglary, and contempt of court.
His bail was set at $10,000.

Chemical fumes forces Wal-Mart evacuation http://www.privateofficer.com
A local Wal-Mart evacuated last night after what may have been a chemical spill. It happened a little after 9:30 at the Wal-Mart Supercenter on Greenwood.
Customers and employees began to feel sick and were complaining of burning eyes and sore throats.
Customer Yolanda Ramirez says, “I was taking some items to be checked prices and it hit me all of a sudden something just hit me. I felt like I was choking my nose was burning my throat was burning. I just turned around and walked away because I thought I was going to black out.”
Once fire officials and haz-mat arrived, they found no spills inside the store and dubbed the Wal-Mart as safe, but they say, it’s good the store acted with precaution.
CCFD Battalion Chief Jeff Willis says, “The store did a great job in fact they immediately hit an alarm and I believe they got on the intercom and moved everyone out of the store very quickly so it seems like it went very well.”
Wal-Mart’s assessment team will now come in to try and determine what may have caused customers and employees to feel ill.
The store is now back open.
Confession of a peeper leads to arrest http://www.privateofficer.com
Shane M. Foster, 28, of Kansas City, is accused of sneaking into a women’s fitting room at the Kohl’s department store at Highway 169 and Barry Road.
One woman, who didn’t want to be identified, said she was trying on shirts in the fitting room on July 31 when she had an unwanted visitor in her fitting room.
“As soon as I started to remove my clothes, I just got a really weird feeling. You know, you just kind of get that feeling? And I turned around, and he was peering up under my stall,” the woman told KMBC’s Martin Augustine.
The woman said she quickly got dressed and tried to chase down the man, but he got away.
Clay County prosecutors charged Foster with invasion of privacy. He’s being held on $20,000 bond.
Police said they were alerted to Foster when he allegedly called a crisis hot line in Milwaukee, Wis. The caller admitted to participating in lewd acts in Kansas City, police said.
According to court records, Foster was on probation for sexual misconduct when the Kohl’s incident occurred. He had been picked up for spying on a teenage girl in the changing room of a Sears store in the Northland on July 22, court records show.
Police said they’re concerned there are more victims who haven’t come forward.
“He has shown that he’s willing to do it multiple times,” Sgt. Jeff Downing said. “It’s to show that he has a pattern. It’s not just one incident. It’s not just him looking at one woman.”
The Kohl’s victim told KMBC’s Martin Augustine that she was relieved an arrest was made.
“I think he deserves (prison) time,” the woman said. Anyone with information can call the Kansas City Police Department’s Sex Crime Unit at 816-234-5220 .
