NOTE TO SELF

Noise complaint: An anonymous caller said a woman was loudly talking to herself outside, waking people up in the process. An officer made contact with the woman, who was still talking to herself. The woman said she was upset about the status of her relationship, and went on to talk about unrelated topics with the officer. The officer asked the woman to keep her voice down because people were sleeping in the area. The woman agreed.

SQUATTERS’ WRONGS
11:58 a.m. — 1300 block of South Orange Avenue
Property damage: A member of a neighborhood association noticed that someone picked a boulder up from in front of the neighborhood sign and dropped it on top of the flood lights used to illuminate the sign. The neighborhood association representative suspected a group of individuals removed from a nearby property for squatting might have been responsible for the incident.

SHATTER PROOF
5:46 p.m. — 2100 block of Adams Lane
Property damage: An employee at a skate shop reported damage to the glass front door of the business. The employee did not see anyone damage the door, which was cracked from top to bottom, and did not hear the glass break. One person in the area said a ball joint flew off a skateboard once and cracked a different window in the shop. Another person said he thought someone shot the glass with a BB gun. Several other skaters reported seeing a person walking around with a BB gun that afternoon.
