Aug. 25

Residential burglary: A man living on the 10000 block of Pointview Drive reported that between Aug. 22 and Aug. 25 – while he was out of town – someone tried to break into his home. The man found telltale signs of someone trying to use a metal object, such as a screwdriver or other tool, to gain access to a door jamb. Because the suspects were unable to get inside the door, the homeowner decided to not fix the door jamb since it still worked.

 

Identity theft: A woman living on the 10000 block of North Madison Avenue reported she received a call from her bank. The bank teller called to tell the woman that a Nigerian man tried to obtain an unauthorized money transfer by using the woman’s social security number, birthdate and her mother’s maiden name. The woman didn’t know how the man gained access to her private information. The transaction didn’t go through and the woman was given security measures by her employer to prevent further identity theft attempts.

 

Theft in the third degree: A 48-year-old woman reported that one of three crab pots anchored off Fay Bainbridge and Port Monroe were missing.

 

Aug. 23

Found property: A 79-year-old man found a MasterCard credit card at Winslow Green shopping center. Efforts, however, were unsuccessful to contact the Portland, Ore., person who owned the card. Police placed the card in evidence for safekeeping.

 

Aug. 22

Suspicious persons/situations: A man living on the 10000 block of Pleasant Place reported that his garage door had been raised to the level of his knees by someone. The man rarely uses the garage since it doesn’t have access to his home. The man didn’t see anything missing from the garage and believed the possible burglary attempt was thwarted because the door wouldn’t go back down after being opened.

 

Aug. 20

Malicious mischief: A 65-year-old woman discovered her car was keyed on the passenger side, possibly while she was doing errands on the island.
