Of the 210 calls for service here are some to share:
“Two long haired hippy looking guys” approached a business owner and started to “hound” him for a job. This is probably not the best way to find work.
Friday night the national weather service reported “hen egg” sized hail in our area.
Officers investigated a crash between a boat and a Ford Explorer. The boat won, it sustained much less damage than the Ford.
A Gary Fisher bike was reported stolen. An officer located the bike at Herrmann Park only to learn that another bike had been stolen from the same family. Makes me wonder why some people can’t leave other’s property alone. If it is not yours, don’t mess with it!
Here we go again. Officers took several reports of someone going through unlocked vehicles. A small amount of money was taken from the vehicles, but worst of all a purse with an expensive cell phone was thrown into a neighbor’s pool. Do these people not realize the havoc they are creating in other people’s lives?
Officers spent extra time on National Street responding to a complaint of speeders, several traffic stops were made.
An officer responded to a complaint of loud music coming from a residence. The officer could hear the music from a significant distance away. The occupant of the residence has received a number of warnings in the past. He thought he deserved another warning and was not happy with the citation.
A new officer in town practiced finding addresses by making personal contact with anyone who had a rummage sale over the weekend and left their signs up. Please, if you have a rummage sale over the weekend, remove your signs promptly to prevent a citation for littering.
An officer took a report of a stolen vehicle. The officer located the vehicle in the impound lot; the driver had been arrested for DUI. When the owner was told that the vehicle was impounded because her friend was driving it, she no longer wanted to press charges. Her main concern was the tow bill.
A citizen received a call from someone who claimed to be her grandson. He told her that he was in Haiti and was going to be held of a $4,000 bond. He asked her to send money via a money gram. Thankfully the citizen realized it was a scam and did not fall for it.
The carnival arrived in town and lost a female who was traveling with them. When the female returned on her own she was surprised to learn that she had been lost.
Neighbors invited officers to yet another party. Several citations were issued to minors for consuming alcohol. Those on probation will have to answer to their probation officer as well.
