Police Blotter: Officers Deal With Neighbor Noise Disputes; Man Under Sheets At Circle K Was Just Waiting On His Aunt

Thursday, July 30, 2020

Police responded to a noise complaint at Sabrina Lane. An officer spoke with a man who said his neighbor was playing loud music and it was disturbing their residence. The officer listened inside the man's bedroom and found that the sound of the bass was vibrating the wall very loudly. He then made contact with the residents where the noise was emanating. He found an Hispanic female and her adult son. The mom was apologetic and told her son to turn down the music, but then her son insisted on speaking with the officer away from his mother. He said the neighbors also played loud music sometime. The officer "informed the parties if they wished police to mediate future issues to just call for assistance."

There was another noise issue at an apartment complex on Mountain Creek Road. A man said his  wife had turned on the television around 6 a.m. and, because she is hard of hearing, she had the volume set fairly high. He said that after she had the television on for a little while the neighbor in the apartment above stomped on the floor and yelled for them to turn it down. He said his wife yelled back proclaiming that they are within the parameters of the apartment complex policy on when it is acceptable to make noise in the apartment. The man said the neighbor then came downstairs and knocked on their door. When he opened the door the neighbor was standing there and told them that the next time they did not turn the TV down there would be issues. Police then spoke with the neighbor, who acknowledged that he did go downstairs and spoke with the man due to the sound of the television being an ongoing issue. He said he has tried to solve it indirectly by contacting the apartment complex as well as law enforcement in the past.

A man on Blackford Street said his neighbors were trying to give him a heart attack by keeping him up all night. He said the neighbors would bang on the wall, and would talk loudly outside his windows. The officer "did not observe any loud noises or hear any talking other than (the man) and myself. I explained to him some of the difficulties of living in a duplex, and suggested he take up the non-criminal issue with his landlord. He requested that I come by tomorrow night to try to and observe the noise his neighbors were making."

He tried to follow the vehicle, but it got away.
