5:45 p.m. — 4700 block of GMD. Civil Disturbance. A man, pregnant woman and infant child checked into a unit they rented using a money order for 11 days but didn’t leave Nov. 3, as scheduled, then paid for three more days with cash. When the unit owner told them they needed to be out because other renters were arriving, they asked for more time. The owner believes the vehicle changed license plates several times during the stay.
You can’t handle the truth
6:52 p.m. — 5400 block of GMD. Public Service. A woman who’s renting on the Key said her condo in Chicago flooded in what could be a setup by her homeowners association to make money selling wood flooring. No Realtor will sell the condo, possibly because they’re in on a conspiracy to keep her in Chicago where “they” can keep an eye on her because she knows the truth. A cab driver in Chicago and the driver of a black Honda near her rental home, she said, could also be reporting her movements to the association. Police agreed to provide extra patrol.
Catch and release
11:14 a.m. — 3400 block of Winding Oaks Drive. Animal. A man called about a possible pygmy rattlesnake at his home. The snake was non-poisonous. Police captured it and released it in a wooded area nearby.
