Nov. 5: Identity theft — A woman said she recently had gotten her cellphone back from her ex-husband as part of a divorce settlement. She found an email on the phone reportedly sent from her husband to another man, and the email contained the woman’s name, rank, Social Security number and maiden name. There also was a response from the man to whom the email was sent that said, “Got it. Now let the fun begin.”

The woman was instructed to make a copy of the email and bring it to HPD as evidence of identity theft. She was given a case number.

Nov. 7

First-degree burglary — An officer responded to a real-estate agent’s complaint that the refrigerator and stove were missing from a vacant residence’s kitchen. The agent said the residence had been secure but the deadbolt wasn’t turned. The owner of the residence said he was not having any work done on the property and did not have the missing appliances. The agent was unable to provide models and/or serial numbers for the refrigerator and stove.

Simple assault — Two HPD officers responded to a report of a domestic disturbance in progress. They were advised that a male had left the incident location on foot and headed toward Main Street. The female complainant was crying and holding a frozen food item to her lip, which was bruised and swollen. She refused EMS treatment and told the officers that she and her live-in boyfriend had a fight about his unemployment and he reportedly punched her twice in the mouth. She went to call 911, but her boyfriend threw a ceramic vase at her. He missed, and it shattered on the wall. When the woman was on the phone with a 911 operator, her boyfriend reportedly took out a pistol. She informed the operator that her boyfriend had a gun and ran outside to get away from him, which is when he reportedly left the residence.

The woman told the officer the couple has four children, who were asleep at the time of the incident and were not disturbed. The officer spoke with the woman’s cousin, who also lives at the residence. The cousin said he witnessed the argument but did not see the man strike the woman or take out the pistol.

The officers searched the area for the man but found only the pistol lying on the ground behind a tree. It was taken into evidence.
A check of the boyfriend’s criminal history showed he had multiple aliases and Social Security numbers, none of which matched the number provided by the woman. In addition to felony drug convictions, the record indicated robbery, theft and weapon offenses.

The woman was provided a case number and given contact information for the Tri County Protective Agency.
