Vacant Residences: Officers responded to the report of an open front door at a vacant residence. There three vacant houses in this area that have had issues with people squatting in them. Officers searched the residence and found no one inside but did find heavy mold and mildew. It also had appeared that wiring throughout the house had been removed. Officers contacted the owner to inform him of the suspicious activity.

Juvenile Warrant: Officers responded to reports of harassment to the reporting party. When officers made contact with the subject, he told officers him and his friends were approached by three others and provoked to start a fight. Officers located two of the three suspects and learned that no physical altercation took place. After a records check, officers learned that one of the juvenile males had a warrant from Remann Hall. He was taken into custody and transported to the juvenile court.

Reckless Driving: At almost 11 p.m., officers responded to the scene of a reported collision on Church Lake Drive East. When officers arrived on the scene they heard commotion coming from behind the residence. They witnessed the reporting party, repossession agents, and the owner’s of the vehicle. While trying to elude the repossession, one of the owners jumped in the driver’s seat and tried to drive off but struck what appeared to be a deck post. She continued to try to stop the vehicle from being taken. Once things had gone too far, officers stepped in and arrested her for reckless driving. She was cited and released into her father’s custody.
