    A resident on Gibson reported his credit card was used fraudulently.

    Road rage: ‘Tis the season.
    A road rage incident that happened on Hwy. 68 resulted in a scraped bumper.

    Empirical evidence
    Resident on Pine got a new small, dark-colored dog a couple of months ago and neighbor says it barks constantly while the owner is away. A second neighbor complained while the officer was there…and the dog barked constantly, too. A warning was left for the owner – who was not at home.

    Medium dogs at large
    Two Rhodesian Ridgebacks were reported at large on Lighthouse, running in and out of traffic and generally upsetting things. The officer collared an un-neutered male but the female of the pair beat feet down Grove Acre. The owner was contacted via information on the collar, picked up the male dog and paid the fines, then set off to capture the female.

    Found stuff
    A wallet was found on Ocean View. It was eventually returned to the owner.
    A backpack was found on Marino Pines. Only a last name was found in it, so it has been stored at the police station.
    Property was found in the 300 block of Fountain and the owner couldn’t be identified. The report doesn’t say what it was, but if you lost something there and want it back, you might want to go down to the police station.
    A purse was found at 9th and Spruce. Via the landlord and a friend, and with the assistance of a cell phone and email, the owner was notified and claimed the purse.
    A government ID was found at a business on Central Ave.

    Alarms, false and otherwise
    An alarm sounded on Syida. Homeowner was already inside and said they couldn’t find anything amiss. But later they reported the garage door leading inside was ajar. Nothing missing or damaged, save the anomaly of the door being ajar.
