REAR ENDED: On Sept. 3, a woman reported a hit and run to officers in the police department building. According to the woman, she was stopped at a light on SR 410 when a car rear ended her. The car then pulled up next to her in another lane and yelled that there was only some paint transfer before driving away. She was unable to get a license plate number of the other vehicle, but provided a vehicle and driver description to officers.

PSE SCAM: Officers contacted restaurant employees on Sept. 5 to a report of fraud. According to the employees, the restaurant received a call from someone claiming to be from PSE saying they had an overdue balance and their electricity would be shut off if the bill was not paid immediately. The caller told the employees to buy visa gift cards and provide him with the numbers. After doing this once, the caller said they needed to pay more money, and the employees realized this was a scam, but the first money transfer was already made.
