FEB. 10


400 block of West Henschen Avenue. Family Disturbance. Around 5 p.m., officers reported to a home regarding a dispute between a married couple. Officers took the man from their bedroom as one questioned the woman, who was slurring and discussing irrelevant matters and admitted intoxication. She said her husband was seeing a 50-year-old white woman. When the officer told her he could do nothing about it, she yelled about many things making no sense. There was no physicality in the incident — the husband just wanted his wife quiet. Officers told them it was no reason to dial 911 and that they could be arrested for misusing it. Dispatch noted police have responded to the home 25 times since January 2014, 12 times for arguments.

FEB. 11


16000 block of West Colonial Drive. Fraud. A motorcycle-store manager informed police that a Capital One card a woman used via phone to buy a $5,460.65 motorcycle Jan. 9 was stolen, per a Feb. 11 report from Capital One. The same woman used a different card via phone Jan. 14 to buy an $11,520.28 motorcycle. The manager requested copies of her card, driver’s license and an authorization form, but she refused, so the transaction was canceled. Police said their investigation led to a positive identification of the woman, who committed grand theft auto and two counts of fraud.


FEB. 10


100 block of Lafayette Street. Vandalism. A complainant reported someone had stolen black spray paint from his garage and vandalized his car, sometime between 3 and 5 p.m. The can was in his grass with a child’s fingerprints on it, processed as evidence. The same paint was on neighbors’ trees and signs of a specific commissioner. A boy visiting a neighbor’s home had black paint on his hands and shoes and said another child had painted him and the items. The resident said the accused child often waited in front of her home for his dad to get him from school. Estimated damage is $500.

FEB. 10


2400 block of Laurel Blossom Circle. Battery. An officer responded to a battery in progress at 6:46 p.m. A male and female were yelling at each other. The officer had the male approach the squad car. The male said they were discussing relationship issues at Dave and Buster’s, where they called the male’s ex-girlfriend. The female then wanted to search his phone, but he refused, so she took him home, he said. While parked at his home, she tried to take his phone, but he refused, so she punched his mouth and bit his shoulder. She said she tried to exit the car then, but he would not let her, pulling her back in and grabbing the back of her head before biting her cheek and scratching her tattoo. The officer filed battery charges against both.

FEB. 12


400 block of Franklin Street. Drug Possession. An officer stopped a car failing to obey a stop sign at 12:28 a.m. The driver denied consent for a car search. A K9 arrived, and the driver and his brother exited the car. The driver said he had nothing illegal and agreed to a body search. An officer found a bag of 29 methadone pills, weighing 7 grams. Officers arrested the driver on methadone possession charges.
