TOILET-PAPERING CASE FLUSHED OUT
At 11:28 p.m. Nov. 4, police were called to the 700 block of Elm Street on the report of an auto prowl in progress. Police arrived and observed three boys walking from a vehicle parked in front of a home, and saw that the vehicle had been toilet-papered. Police told the boys to stop, and they told police that they were toilet-papering their friend’s car because she had done the same to their vehicles. The girl and her mother came out and talked to police, and the mother told police that the three boys and her daughter are friends and attend Resurrection Christian School in Loveland. The mother told police that it was all a joke, and payback for what her daughter had done. The mother did not wish to press charges, and the kids removed the toilet paper from the vehicle. There was no visible damage, and the boys threw the toilet paper away.
SAY HELLO, BUT DON’T TOUCH: At 4:07 p.m. Nov. 7, a woman and her daughter came to the police department lobby wanting to report suspicious activity. The woman told police that an older “Chinese” woman had followed her daughter and touched her on the back and head. The girl told police that on Nov. 5, she was walking to school when the lady waved at her and asked her what her name was. The girl said the lady touched her upper back when she talked to her. The girl then told police that on Nov. 7 she was walking home from school and the lady patted her on the head and talked to her. The girl said that the lady had a son who went to school with her at Windsor Middle School, but he didn’t speak English. The girl said this took place on 7th and Locust streets. The mother thought that the lady may have lived at Stone Gate Apartments because she walked that direction after her son walked to school. The mother told police that she thought the lady’s activity with her daughter was a little weird. Police told the mother that they would talk to the lady if they could locate her.
NO BREAK-IN HERE, OFFICER: At 10:49 p.m. Nov. 7, the police were called to the 200 block of Eastman Park Drive for a reported suspicious circumstance. An anonymous reporting party was driving by the location and saw a man wearing a hoodie near the gas station and thought the man was breaking into the station. En route to the gas station, police contacted a man wearing a hoodie walking west on Eastman Park Drive and Water Valley Parkway. Police learned that the man was an employee at the gas station and had just closed down for the night. The man said there was a man standing outside the gas station using the free WiFi. Police contacted the 17-year-old boy on the west side of the gas station and detected a strong odor of burnt marijuana. The boy said he wasn’t using marijuana and told police to search him to prove his statement. Police did a pat-down search and didn’t locate anything suspicious, and the teenager left the location and walked home.
