Found Property: Officers responded to a state Route 410 store to meet the reporting party who found property in the woods while on a walk. She had found a large machete with black electrical tape on the handle. It was placed into the evidence locker at the department and nothing further came of this report.

Stolen Vehicle: Shortly after midnight, officers were passing a condominium complex and were flagged down by someone. Once contact was made, the person told officers that a vehicle had been parked at the complex for a number of days. After looking through the glove box for the owner, they called him and found out the vehicle had been stolen. There appeared to be no damage done to the vehicle and when the owner arrived on scene told officers that a sub-woofer was missing.
