12:11 a.m. — 900 block of Osborne Drive
Suspicion: A woman reported that one of her neighbors was telling people that residents in several houses on the block, including hers, were selling drugs. The woman was upset about the allegation and wanted to document that she did not sell drugs. An officer told the woman not to let the rumor bother her and to call law enforcement if she had any additional problems.

8:56 a.m. — 200 block of South Osprey Avenue
Dispute: An officer saw two drivers yelling at each other. He approached one of the drivers, who said the other driver started yelling at him first. He also said the other driver was driving improperly, which is why he yelled back. The officer did not see any improper driving when he heard the yelling. The officer thanked the driver for telling him what happened.

10:02 a.m. — 2100 block of 13th Street
Dispute: A woman said she brought her car into an auto repair shop to have her motor replaced in June. She said she paid the owner $600 up front to replace the motor, but the work had not been done yet. The woman wanted her vehicle out of the shop and her money back. The owner of the shop said he was waiting on the motor, and there are a lot of other vehicles he’s been working on before he can get to hers. The man said he would get her car out as soon as possible, but he did not have $600 in cash to return to her. The woman did not believe the owner was being truthful and she planned to take him to small claims court.

7:53 p.m. — 600 block of Central Avenue
Dispute: A man reported that two ex-employees caused issues at his business. He recently fired two men, and he arranged for them to bring back their company shirts and keys in exchange for their last paychecks. He said both men brought their families with them, which made him uncomfortable because they were all yelling at them. He said neither men brought back their shirts and keys, but he still gave them their paycheck to avoid any issues. An officer suggested the man could have an officer present the next time he tries to get the shirts and keys from the men.
