May 5

Miscellaneous: A 57-year-old woman was placed in a taxi due to her intoxication level at an island restaurant located on Winslow Way. An employee told a police officer that he called a taxi and took away the woman’s second drink after she was halfway through it when she started acting very intoxicated. The taxi driver called police at 10:44 p.m. when the woman refused to leave the vehicle. The woman told medical personnel, who arrived to help her, that she had four drinks at the restaurant.

Suspicious incident/investigation: A man living on the 7000 block of Hidden Cove Road reported hearing footsteps at his front porch at 3 p.m. The man assumed it was someone dropping off a package since his wife receives those on a regular basis. But there were no packages when the man got up and checked the porch. The man noticed wet footprints on his porch and later walked with his dog to the end of his secluded driveway, but didn’t see anyone.

Theft from motor vehicle: A 26-year-old man living on the 100 block of Shotwell Road found that his vehicle has been burglarized sometimes between Friday morning, May 2, and 11:15 a.m. May 5. The man said his SnapOn wrench set valued at $200 was missing, along with a $150 Power Probe 3 electrical measuring device. The man believed someone may have jimmied the door to get inside since the vehicle had no broken windows.


May 4

Malicious mischief: Two vehicles parked at a business on the 9000 block of New Brooklyn Road had broken windows. One of the vehicles looked like it had been shot out possibly by a BB gun. Damage to one vehicle was $250 and the other was $150. The owner of the vehicle that had $250 in damage later returned a call from police. He told the officer that the window’s damage was old and occurred when a tree branch snapped back and hit the window.


May 2

Harassing phone calls: A 63-year-old man living on the 10000 block of Kallgren Road reported receiving a call from someone claiming to be with the Internal Revenue Service. Because the man knew the IRS doesn’t cold call people, he hung up.


May 1

Counterfeiting: An employee at a fast-food restaurant located on High School Road discovered a counterfeit $20 bill that was provided by a customer. The customer said they received the bill from an earlier transaction from a grocery store on High School Road. The fake bill was taken into custody for evidence.
