JAN. 20


15000 block of West Colonial Drive. Animal Incident. At about 7:28 p.m., officers responded to a complainant at a motel, who said he had seen two cat skins on the property a few weeks prior, and that a neighbor had found cat bones under a hut. Another motel informant said she had seen a cat skin and showed neighbors. A third informant said he had found cat bones near a gazebo couch on the property.

JAN. 21


0 block of North Nixon Street. Battery. After 5 p.m., an officer reported to a rooming house regarding battery of a woman in an on-off romantic relationship. The woman said she and the suspect were staying at the house, when he would randomly snap at points between 11 a.m. Jan. 20 and 5 p.m. Jan. 21. He kicked her legs and bit or punched her face, she said, and choked her in her sleep. The complainant had bruises on her arms, legs and neck. She said he had made crazy statements since visiting his friend’s grave, such as spirits telling him money and snakes are inside him. She found cuts in his side as if he were trying to cut out snakes. She informed his mother, who said the white girl had placed a voodoo spell on him. 

JAN. 22


17000 block of West Colonial Drive. Drug Possession. An officer stopped a car with a faulty taillight and issued a verbal warning before asking whether a search could be conducted. The driver said nothing illegal would be found and vacated the car with its two passengers. She took her purse with her, but the officer told her to put it back. While she did, the officer caught her trying to hide two needles, which later tested positive for heroin. The officer handcuffed the driver and put her in the back of the patrol car. A search revealed more contents consistent with drug use. When told introducing drugs to jail was an additional crime, the arrested driver said she had two crack pipes in her pants.


JAN. 16


500 block of Flewelling Avenue. Criminal Mischief. An officer met with Parks and Recreation personnel around 11:15 a.m. regarding a report of graffiti on the east side of the press box at Central Park. The graffiti says “DOPEY” and is estimated at $100 of damage.

JAN. 17


Palm Drive and 429 Beltway. Drug Possession. Officers stopped a suspect riding his bicycle without lights around 1:38 a.m. The suspect first agreed to a search but then said he did not agree. When officers asked again, they noticed an odor of alcohol and received answers they believed were hostile and defensive. An officer saw a bulge in the man’s pocket and asked him to identify it without reaching for it. The man called it a knife and began to reach for it, but officers subdued him and found crack in another pocket before arresting him.

JAN. 18


Blackwood and Montgomery avenues. Drug Possession. An officer stopped a car traveling west on State Road 50 around 65 mph in a 45-mph zone at 3:27 a.m. At the traffic stop at the intersection of Blackwood and Montgomery avenues, the driver provided a mutilated license and rental car information. The officer noticed a plastic container with cannabis between the feet of a man in the passenger seat. A search did not find additional drugs, so the passenger was arrested on charges of possession of 3 grams of cannabis. 

The driver received tickets for speeding and failing to properly show a Florida license.
