Police Blotter: Car Not Stolen After All (Woman Just Went To The Store); New Smart Stove Must Have Been Programmed To Smoke

Saturday, April 10, 2021

A man on Delores Drive called police about a possible auto theft. However, when police arrived and spoke with the man and a woman, they found that the man had been sleeping and the woman took the car and went to the store to get drinks and cigarettes, then she came back home. No theft occurred, only a misunderstanding due to the woman not wishing to wake the man up when she went to the store. A man on Auburndale Avenue called police and said he last saw his vehicle around 4 p.m. the day before, parked at home.

He said the vehicle stayed there overnight and that morning he discovered that the inside of the vehicle had been rummaged through, but nothing was stolen. He said there was no damage to the vehicle and it had been left unlocked overnight.

Another man on Glass Street told police that his handgun was stolen from his vehicle between the hours of 8-10 p.m. He said that he left his vehicle unlocked with his Taurus G2 handgun in the center console.

Police were called to a disorder at a residence on Museum Street where a woman said that a man had begun yelling at her about money. The man said that he had given her $10 earlier for gambling and wanted his money back. She claimed that she did not owe him any money and wanted him to leave her home. Police could not determine that any of this took place as both of them were intoxicated. Police asked the man to leave and he did.
