POLICE BLOTTER - Sept. 19
INFORMATION — Officers responded at approximately 7:30 a.m. Sunday to the area of Second Street Northeast after receiving a report from a resident that construction workers were making construction noise. Officer made contact and advised that they cannot start until 9 a.m. on weekends. Workers apologized and went for donuts and a brief nap.
Officers responded Sunday to the parking lot of Crosby Regional Medical Center on a report of two kids and a dog who were locked inside of a vehicle. The dog had stepped on the lock mechanism and locked all the doors. In addition, there was a wasp in the vehicle which had stung the dog. Officer arrived and unlocked the vehicle when the dog escaped and ran. Dog was later caught by owners and all went safely home where mom and dad each had a large beverage.
Officers received information Saturday on a telephone scam where a guy named “Rusty Love” called a Crosby resident and said they had $5.5 million dollars, a briefcase with another $25,000 in cash and a new car for them. All they had to do was send “Rusty Love” a money order to someone in Louisiana. “‘Rusty’ is not very nice to make up fibs and should not have the last name of ‘Love’ now should he?” the report concluded.
