Door-to-door salespeople must have permits

Dec. 31. Solicitor: Callers believe that the man selling products door-to-door is “casing” residences even though he has a valid permit with the city and has passed appropriate checks at 12:07 p.m. in the 800 block of Benita Place.

Drunk: A local business is concerned with the state of a customer who is trying to leave in a vehicle at 3:35 p.m. in the 900 block of Nevada Way.

Thought for the day: Door-to-door sales must be done with appropriate license and checks so ask for the Boulder City permit before letting anyone start their spiel.

Jan. 1. Drunk: A man decides that he would rather take a nap on the ground in the parking lot than struggle into that pesky hotel room at 3:45 a.m. in the 1300 block of Arizona Street.

Traffic: The officer escorts the visitors from another country into the station to post bail on the traffic citation before they continue their vacation at 11:58 a.m. in the area of U.S. Highway 93 and Veterans Memorial Drive.

Thought for the day: You’d have to be pretty intoxicated to use the asphalt for a bed and stop block as a pillow.

Jan. 2. Assist other jurisdiction: Officers respond to a local address in an attempt to find a missing juvenile from North Las Vegas, who may be here hanging out with her boyfriend at 1:21 p.m.

DUI: The driver thinks a rolling stop should satisfy the officer; however, field sobriety tests indicate a night at the crossbar hotel is in order at 8:08 p.m. in the 800 block of Adams Boulevard.

Thought for the day: Rolling stops aren’t in this year, I guess.

Jan. 3. Found property: A person comes into the lobby with the upper dentures from some unfortunate woman who won’t be having steak for dinner at 5:08 p.m. in the area of Wilbur Square Park.

Noise: A loud band and lots of screaming at a residence nearby sounds like a KISS concert at 11:04 p.m. in the 1500 block of Darlene Way.

Thought for the day: If you have an elderly relative that is relying unusually on soft food these days, you might want to see if he or she has both parts of his or her dentures.

Jan. 4. Medical: The caller reports that her husband was cooking and spilled the boiling food onto his foot so a trip to the burn center is in his future at 8:05 p.m. in the 1100 block of Grillo Way.

See person: The man who had a vehicle impounded when trying to fraudulently obtain property and paperwork of another can’t seem to understand that the title he presented to claim “his” vehicle that is erased, whited out and copied over is void and no good at 12:13 p.m. in the 1000 block of Arizona Street.

Thought for the day: We don’t take kindly to people trying to rip off our residents.

Jan. 5. Suspicious person: Officers receive reports that someone has broken into a closed business and several people are inside at 4:31 a.m. in the 700 block of Nevada Way.

Accident: We receive a call that a subject has been dropped off for medical treatment after being hit by a car in front of his residence, but everyone involved appears to be under the influence, uncooperative and nothing concrete can be established from any of the parties at 10:13 p.m. in the 1300 block of Stacey Lane.

Thought for the day: A possible burglary was prevented by an alert passerby, so thank you for being a good witness.

Jan. 6. Civil: An officer responds to a request from a separating party to mediate a dispute over property and they are referred to civil court or to amicably settle their dispute at 6:58 a.m. in the 700 block of Park Place.

See person: A man comes into the lobby with a firearm that someone recently purchased and he recently was given a tip that it was stolen and he wants to find out at 11:40 a.m. in the 1000 block of Arizona Street.

Thought for the day: It’s a good practice to call local law enforcement to check on the status of any firearm you purchase so you don’t end up minus the money and the firearm when it’s found to be someone else’s property.

Call(s) of the week: Assist: The officer makes a valiant attempt to assist with a car seat adjustment but comes away defeated and needing a chiropractor himself at 4:30 p.m. in the 1000 block of Nevada Way.

Have a great week.
