Police Blotter

Aug. 16, 6:02 a.m.

A caller reported discovering a motorcycle of unknown origin in the driveway, parked in such a manner that it appeared to be intentionally hidden. Although steps were taken to impound the vehicle, its owner eventually showed up and claimed the motorcycle.

Aug. 16, 11:40 a.m.

A man called officers to complain about a man, to whom he had given a down payment for home repairs, after the man failed to show up and was not answering his phone.

Aug. 17, 12:20 a.m.

A woman called requesting officers perform a civil standby as she planned to tell her husband to move out when he returned home from work, after his 45-minute commute. Officers notified her they would not be able to do so, as the man was under no obligation to move out, as there was no order for protection in place, despite the fact she had already boxed up some of his belongings.

Aug. 17, 7:40 a.m.

A woman approached officers on the street to report domestic violence at her mother’s home, claiming the male caretaker had grabbed her mother by the throat and thrown her out the door.
