    A backpack was found on Grand Ave. and turned in. No identification. It will be held for 90 days and some of the contents will be destroyed unless a prescription is produced. Hmmm. Wonder what it is?

    Attempted burglary
    A person came home to his house on Ransford to find his neighbor waiting for him. The neighbor wanted to tell him he’d seen a black man wearing dark clothing had attempted to break in by prying and smashing his front window. The suspect had also entered and tried to remove power tools from the reporting party’s garage. The suspect was scared too prior to the victim arriving.

    Fighting in public (and in private)
    A couple were involved in a verbal dispute on Forest Ave.
    A couple were involved in a verbal dispute on Lighthouse Ave. No indication in the report as to whether it was the same couple as were fighting on Forest.
    A pair of sisters are involved in an ongoing dispute over their late mother’s stuff. One sister grabbed the other and injured her arm. The other sister says she didn’t do it, that the injuries were self-inflicted. Neither wanted to press charges and the injured sister didn’t want medical treatment.
    Someone reported the sound of glass breaking on Forest Ave. Turns out the residents were “involved in a verbal domestic dispute.” Sounds like it got physical, or else they yelled pretty loud.
    On Grand Ave., a suspect threatened to have his friends beat up the potential victim. The suspect was admonished.
    On Grove St., some neighbors were reported arguing. Nothing physical, just a lot of hollering.

    Sign of drugs for sale or a prank?
    A person on Park Place went to the police station and reported a pair of tennis shoes had been flung over a power line near his house. His friend told him it was a sign that someone was selling drugs. He wanted the shoes removed.

    Caught red-handed

    Buggy clothes
    Some buggy men’s and women’s clothing was found under a bug-infested blanket near a garbage collection area. They were picked up by Public Works and taken to the yard. Bet THAT made them happy.

    Mountain lion on the loose, headed for McDonald’s
    Two reports of a mountain lion near Country Club Gate: One at 10:00 p.m. on the Forest side, on the side by McDonald’s, and another at 10:15 sauntering around a parking lot near a wooded area. Fish & Game was contacted but the lion had wandered off by then.
