Emergency escape
9:11 a.m. — 100 block of Broadway. Rescue. A woman was unloading her car and accidentally locked her child in the car. Firefighter/paramedics punched out a window to free the child.

Probable cause?
10:32 a.m. — 600 block of Cedars Court. Suspicious Circumstance. A woman said a warm-up button on her stove was left on during an inspection, possibly in retaliation for her complaints against the company. She has complained that the company starts work early and blocks vehicles; she was not home at the time of the inspection. She also considered the possibility that the inspector simply forgot to turn it off.

Can you hear me now?
3:40 p.m. — 1600 block of GMD. Suspicious Person. Police watched a man pace back and forth around the fence surrounding the Colony Beach & Tennis Resort through binoculars during marine patrol. The man said he was talking to his girlfriend on his cellphone through a Bluetooth and did not want to lose reception, so he stayed in the area.

Make a clean break

Root of the problem

Bumper car
11:44 a.m. — 3000 block of Fair Oaks Lane. Suspicious Vehicle. A condo security officer said the driver of a blue car followed a resident through the guard gate, came out and followed another car through again. The driver appeared intoxicated or medicated and told the guard he was a priest and had just come from a funeral. Several residents told the guard the driver struck a building, causing damage. Police could not locate the vehicle or determine the cause of the damage.

No show
9:50 p.m. — 5700 block of GMD. Welfare Check. Police checked the unit of an 85-year-old woman who was supposed to meet friends at their condo’s pool earlier but never showed up. Neither the woman nor her walker were in the unit, and nothing appeared to be disturbed, so police assumed the woman was out somewhere.
