Dispute: Police responded to a woman’s call about an argument between her and a family member.

A few minutes after police left, the woman called again, and when police arrived for the second time she explained that she was arguing with her boyfriend and wanted him to leave. She told police that she was upset he had come home late that night. Police did not find any evidence of a physical altercation, other than a hand injury to the boyfriend.

Moving in

Trespassing: A woman called the police stating that two men were in her driveway. She explained that she yelled at the men to get off her property and she later observed them at a home across the street. When police arrived, they questioned the two men who said they were moving into the home. The two men were calm and cooperative, even providing a key to the home.

Police were unable to resolve the issue.
