The complainant reported her 18-year-old son was on her roof trying to gain entry into the property. Her son climbed on the roof to see if he could get into his bedroom on the second floor of the house because he needed to get his paycheck. The son said his mother changed the house locks and didn’t want him in the house anymore. The mother said the son is unruly and refuses to do his chores. Police escorted the boy upstairs and allowed him to get his paycheck and some personal items. The boy said he didn’t want to stay there since his mother didn’t want him there. He said he would try and stay at a friend’s house.

The woman said the incident also was posted on Facebook. She said she saw the alleged assailant on Memorial Drive as she drove to the library. She attempted to talk to the suspect, but he shouted obscenities at her and ran. Police questioned a library employee who witnessed the incident and reported it to the supervisor, but no one called the police.

The woman said she had not been drinking and said it could be she was dehydrated or suffering from low blood sugar. Police gave her a breathalyzer test. The test indicted there was no alcohol in her system. Police gave her a courtesy ride home.

Probation violation/possession of a dangerous drug — Police responding to a verbal domestic disturbance at a Pineland Avenue residence found a man trying to sleep on the front porch of his girlfriend’s house. During questioning, an officer recognized the man and ran a background check. The check showed the man had an active arrest warrant due to a probation violation. He was placed into custody, and police later discovered two pills wrapped in aluminum foil in his wallet. The charge of possession of a dangerous drug was added, and a bond of $919 was set. Unable to post bond, the suspect will remain in jail until his court date.

Aug. 28: Theft by shoplifting — A woman was taken into custody after she attempted to steal a playpen from Walmart.

The woman had her 8-month-old daughter with her at the time of the arrest. The baby was allowed to go home with the woman’s boyfriend since security could not prove that the man was involved in the attempted theft of the store’s property.
