Theft by taking
Wayfair Lane
Oct. 10

An officer was dispatched to Wayfair Lane in reference to a theft. Upon arrival, the officer made contact with the complainant who said someone was going into her mailbox. She noted she had already reported one instance. After making the initial report, the complainant left her residence for the weekend and returned to find “another” Block Buster video envelope on the ground near her mailbox. She was given a case number and told to contact authorities if any more DVDs were taken. It was suggested to the complainant it would be a good idea not to receive any more DVDs through the mail until the matter was resolved.

Harassing communication
Todd Street
Oct. 10

An officer was dispatched to Todd Street in reference to harassing phone calls. The complainant said someone had been calling her home and hanging up, twice a day, for the past three weeks. She believed it could have been her grandchildren but she wasn’t sure. She noted she had taken one of her daughters to court about two years ago and things hadn’t been the same with the family since.
She said the caller never says anything, just hangs up after she answers the phone. She was given a case number, Coastal Communication trace request forms and was advised to contact police if the calls continue.

Simple battery
Garden Circle
Oct. 10

An officer responded to Garden Circle in reference to an assault. The complainant reported she was at a neighbor’s house when her youngest daughter came to get her.
