Police responded to W. 34th Street on a report of a suspicious vehicle. Police found the vehicle in question, parked on a concrete slab about 20 feet out of the roadway. Police ran the VIN and found that the vehicle registration expired in June, 2015, but the vehicle was not listed as stolen. The vehicle was parked on private property and was well out of the roadway and not a traffic hazard.

While on patrol on 10th Avenue, an officer saw a man sitting in a chair on a piece of property that had been marked as private property. This piece of property is beginning to have issues with homeless people trespassing and setting up their camp on the land. There are two signs on the property, on the 10th Avenue side and the E. 45th Street side, that clearly state "Private Property- No Trespassing". The officer spoke with the man and identified him. He said he didn’t own the property and had followed another homeless person onto the land earlier. The officer verified that the man could read and he seemed confused that there were two very obvious signs that say the property is private property and that there is no trespassing. The officer made the man gather his items and verbally trespassed him from the property. The man said he understands that if he comes back on the property he will go to jail.
