THE COP SHOP
Witness makes thieves unload stolen property
Two men who weren't supposed to be at a house under construction showed up about 9:15 Sunday and began loading stacked up roofing materials into the bed of a pickup truck. A witness confronted them and made them unload the shingles. He called police but the suspects drove away before officers arrived. An officer contacted the owner of the construction company building the house. He asked that the property be placed under close patrol. He said he had experienced several other thefts from the property in recent weeks.
6500 Wellston Lane - An officer arriving to a call for help about 11:50 p.m. Sunday found the caller standing in the middle of the street. She said her former husband has been calling her, harassing and threatening her. He had called and said he was outside her house, so she went out to look for him, she said. The officer did not find the former husband. The woman asked that her home be placed on close patrol because the suspect had been violent in the past and she feared for her life.
2800 Wind River Street - A 16-year-old called police just before 10 p.m. Sunday. He said he went into a movie theater about 7 p.m. When he returned to his car, he discovered that someone had broken into it and began dismantling his steering console. Apparently, the burglar was interrupted before he could take the car.
Bonnie Brae at University Drive - An officer made a traffic stop on a motorcycle about 9:45 p.m. Sunday and found that the 21-year-old rider had outstanding warrants. The motorcycle had been reported stolen from Cooke County. The officer arrested the rider.
3400 block of Joyce Lane - Officers arrested a 20-year-old man for family violence assault after his 18-year-old girlfriend reported that he hit her several times with a clothes hanger.
