This week’s Law & Order features more stolen campaign signs and a roommate fight
November 12, 2016
On Nov. 6 at 8:13 p.m., an officer responded to a report of a suspicious man at Americ Inn on the 7000 block of Westgate Drive. An employee said she had seen the man acting strangely at the hotel that day. He said his girlfriend kicked him out of their hotel room, then asked for an application for a rewards card from the front desk. The employee allowed him to use a computer in the waiting area to complete the application. He asked for help after one hour, then after receiving help with the application took his time finishing it. He went to get a bagel from the break room, and was eventually asked to leave the computer for another guest after four more hours. When the employee lost track of the man, she asked the police to come and see if he was hiding somewhere in the hotel. The police didn't find him.
On Nov. 4 at 9:53 p.m., an officer responded to an apartment on the 200 block of 1st Street where someone reported hearing a disturbance from his neighbors. When police went to the neighbors' apartment, they found one roommate with a bloody lip and the other with scraped knuckles. One roommate said they had gotten into an argument because his roommate talks too much. Medical personnel were called, and paramedics transported one of the men to the hospital. Neither party wished to press charges.
More stolenTrump signs:
On Nov. 4 at 2:05 p.m., an officer responded to the 500 block of Sycamore Drive on a report of stolen Donald Trump campaign signs from a yard. There, a woman explained that her neighbor had captured the theft on video surveillance, showing people in an sport utility vehicle stealing three campaign signs from the woman's yard and leaving. The license plate of the vehicle led police to the home of a teenage girl who admitted to stealing the signs with some of her friends after a football game. The caller did not press charges, and was satisfied with an apology from the teens and the return of her signs.
