HAMBURGLER STRIKES AT WINDSOR RESTAURANT
At 4:24 p.m. Oct. 24, police responded to a restaurant at the 1200 block of Main Street regarding an employee who stole hamburger buns from his employer. Another employee reported having seen a fellow employee exit the freezer with something large under his shirt, and that he appeared to be in a hurry as he left the building. The restaurant manager showed police the surveillance video and it appeared that there was a large bulge under the employee’s shirt as he exited the freezer and left the restaurant. The manager said she didn’t want to press charges as long the employee was willing to return the items or admit his guilt. Police contacted the employee by phone and he agreed to meet with them at the police department. He initially denied having stolen anything, but when police told him to bring whatever he stole to the police department he brought a package of hamburger buns. The employee told police that he stole the buns because he didn’t have buns for hamburger meat at home. Police told the man that this was a serious offense, and that he was not being charged because the restaurant didn’t want to charge him. Police collected the buns, and they were photographed and later thrown away at the restaurant manager’s request.
SUSPICIOUS PERSON ATTEMPTING TO ACCESS BACKYARD AFTER MIDNIGHT: At 9:35 a.m. Oct. 27, police called back a woman who lives at the 1200 block of Walnut Street regarding a suspicious person attempting to access the reporting party’s backyard the night before. A woman told police that she woke up at 1:40 a.m. by the sound of someone trying to get into her yard. She looked out and observed a short Latino-looking female with a large coat and bare legs with no shoes on the west side of her house. She said there was a silver colored pickup in her driveway that she believes had a male inside of it. The female gave up her attempt to get in the backyard because of bags stacked in the way, returned to the truck and left. Police advised the woman to call the police at the time of the occurrence in the future.
