According to Paris Police Chief, Bob Hundley, although there was a large number of people out in Halloween spirit, officers reported little or no criminal activity related to any of the events put on for the community.
“There was an impressive number of activities with a large turn out of kids and parents, with absolutely no problems associated with them,” commented Chief Hundley.
There were some complaints regarding golf carts being used to ferry trick or treaters in neighborhoods where traffic was jammed up, but other than those, everything went smoothly.
There was some criminal activity resulting in arrests on Wednesday, October 31, but they were unassociated with Halloween festivities.
An alleged shoplifter became violent with store personnel who tried to detain her on a minor theft. After officers arrived, the suspect continued to resist their efforts to handcuff her and put her in a patrol car, according to police.
Cynthia Julian, 49, was charged with robbery, resisting arrest, theft and eleven traffic warrants.
Also on Wednesday, an individual on a bicycle was creating a traffic hazard, and when officers attempted to stop him, he abandoned the bike and went inside a store. As the officers approached the store he came back out and started riding off.
The man was stopped behind the store as he was throwing a back-pack into a dumpster. An amount of what is believed to be meth was found in the back-pack.
Grady White, 55, was charged with possession of a controlled substance, a theft warrant and an assault warrant.
Police also made an arrest regarding a residential burglary that was reported on October 30th. A juvenile was arrested while in possession of some stolen property from the burglary. At the time of the arrest, the juvenile was also charged with possession of marijuana.
