Sept. 9

5:06 a.m. — 1700 block of Central Avenue
Noise Complaint: After receiving a noise complaint, an officer went to the housing facility at which the incident occurred. A delivery truck driver informed the officer that a resident was accusing him of making loud and disturbing noise. The driver said he regularly delivers to that location, and that the resident regularly complains. The resident said noise from the truck’s brakes, the metal ramp falling onto the ground and boxes dropping onto the ground could be heard inside her residence. When the officer arrived, no noise was observed, and no other residents reported any disturbing noise.

1:51 p.m. — 0 block of Central Avenue
Suspicion: A man was standing in front of a business, talking loudly to himself and cursing at customers. An employee at the store reported the incident, but the man was gone when an officer arrived. The officer located the man and told him the management of the property didn’t want him to return. The man walked away from the officer, and because he was not on the property at the time, he could not be issued a trespass warning.

5 p.m. — 400 block of John Ringling Boulevard.
Misc. Officer: A woman reported that her boyfriend had failed to return her car to her. She said her boyfriend drove her to work in the morning, but never returned to pick her up. The woman did not want to report her car as stolen, but she did want to get her car back. The responding officer had received a call from the woman last week when she reported her car stolen under the same circumstances. After that incident, the woman said, she recovered the car from her boyfriend’s driveway the following day. The officer advised the woman not to let her boyfriend take the car since he has proven to be irresponsible. The officer also re-issued the notice regarding the missing car that had been broadcast a week earlier.

9:50 p.m. — 1900 block of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Way
Property Damage: An employee at a grocery store reported that a woman slashed his car’s tires. The employee said he’s had issues with the woman in the past, and that a person witnessed the woman cutting the tires. The employee said he had made the woman leave the store earlier in the night, and that she has a history of vandalizing property at the store. The witness confirmed that she saw the woman cut the tires.
