The other woman said she had been asleep for some time.

4 a.m. — 3500 block of Goodrich Avenue. Suspicion General/Unknown. A woman reported someone threw mud on her car while it was parked in front of her home. The woman said she believed children living down the street threw the mud. The woman said there was no damage but that she did have to clean up the mess.

10:29 a.m. — 1900 block of Central Avenue. Civil Problem. A woman reported she sent her roommate to the store with $25. The woman said the roommate did not come home with the proper amount of change. The roommate said there was no receipt from the transaction and told the woman to check her secret hiding spot and recount her money. Officers informed the two that this was a civil matter.

7:59 p.m. — 800 block of North Lockwood Ridge Road. Civil Problem. A woman said that, one month earlier, someone stole her husband’s motorized bicycles. The woman said the thief was a friend of her landlord’s and that the landlord had brought the bicycles back with damage to the motors. The two parties reached an agreement, and the landlord said he would pay her back with a month of free rent as well as a refrigerator, stove and dishwasher. The woman said she was supposed to leave by the end of June but that she was unable to find a new place to live. As a result, the landlord turned off her electricity and water to try to get her to move. The landlord said he did not take the motorized bicycles but found them and returned them. He confirmed that he agreed to give the woman a month’s rent and a dishwasher. The landlord said he just wanted the woman and her husband to leave the home soon, and he agreed to turn back on the electricity and water.
