A man at a residence on E. 27th Street said his lady friend was looking through his drawers and took a purple Crown Royal bag with $75, a pack of cigarettes, and a gun in it.

He said he never saw her have the bag in her possession nor saw her leave the house with the bag in her hands. The woman denied ever looking in the man's drawers and taking things out. Police said, "Officers are familiar with this residence and he has many people coming and leaving the residence so we could not prove that she was the one that took any items. Due to insufficient evidence and no proof that she took the items, charges could not be taken out on her."

A man said he had been pouring asphalt at 900 Airport Road. He said the concrete was going over a speed bump on a driveway through the trailer park in an attempt to fix it, because he works for the management company at this location. He said he had cones blocking it off on both sides to close down that section of the roadway, and a woman drove through the cones and went over the freshly poured asphalt. He said that due to the woman driving over the asphalt while it was not dry, it caused two tire-sized indentations in the middle of it that would have to be repaired the next day. The woman said she drove through the cones because there was enough space for vehicles to still fit through and did not know he was working on the roadway.
