Katherine Lambeth, 50, of Cloverhill Drive allowed a man named "G" to borrow her 1980 Oldsmobile, Officer Shawn Haney reported. In exchange, she received from him $50 worth of crack cocaine and a promise to return the car by 5 p.m. last Saturday. When he didn't return the car as promised, she reported her car missing Monday. The car is valued at $1,500.
Police responded to a 911 call from NBA star Ron Artest's wife in March 2007 and subsequently booked the Sacramento Kings forward for spousal abuse. Charged with domestic violence and using force to keep a victim from reporting a crime, Artest was booked into the Placer County jail before being released after posting $50,000 bail.
