Officers responded to some suspicious behavior in an alleyway. It appeared that three subjects were having sex. They were also cussing. Upon investigation, they followed the subjects to Avenue A. After “several minutes of not telling the truth,” the 20-year-old man admitted to having to sex with the female. The juvenile who was there did not participate, “but was involved in the situation.” The caller asked that police press charges against them for cussing and breaking curfew, but the officers advised that cussing is not illegal and they did not break curfew. The juvenile was picked up at the scene, and the 20-year-old man was released at the scene. The woman was picked up at the station. No charges were pressed.

A woman came into the police station and said that there was a heavy smell of marijuana coming through her apartment windows. She said that she knew where it was coming from and wanted to speak to an officer.

Officers received a call that a resident had video of what appeared to be people wiring explosives. An hour later, officers viewed the video and said that it showed a white four-door jeep in front of the person’s home. Two subjects got out of it and walked next door, where they stayed for 20 minutes. They came back five minutes later with what appeared to be two M-80 firecrackers. According to the neighbor, there have been ongoing issues at school and it may be kids who are bullying other kids. The neighbor would like the officers to find out who it is.

The officer advised him camping was not allowed within city limits. It did not appear as if the man was asking for money, but when asked by the officer he said that he “accepts donations but doesn’t ask for money.” The officer then advised him to leave the area and go to Emergency Aid.
