Dispute: The manager of an office supply store reported a dispute with a customer who came in to pick up an order he made online. The customer said he was not satisfied with the order and wanted a refund. The manager told the customer she could not give him a cash refund, because he made the purchase online. She told him the store would issue the reimbursement through his credit card. The manager said the customer became irate and eventually left the store when she called the police. Officers told the manager to call the police again if the customer returned and caused a problem.

Suspicion: A woman came home from work and saw a pickup truck with a loud exhaust in her neighborhood. The woman said a man she did not recognize was in the truck. She said he approached her and asked her for a cigarette. When she said she did not have one, the truck left the area. The woman thought it was strange the man was in her small residential neighborhood asking for a cigarette. Two hours later, she saw the same truck enter her neighborhood and park. She tried to take a picture of the truck, at which point the truck quickly left the neighborhood going the wrong way. The woman was concerned and wanted the incidents documented.
