Noise complaint. An officer was dispatched to the 2200 block of Grospoint Avenue on a report of trees being cut and ground up all day. The resident at the address, who had hired a tree-trimming service, was warned he was in violation of an ordinance prohibiting commercial construction activity on Sundays.

Miscellaneous information. Police received a call from a woman who said a man dressed in a woman’s tennis outfit asked her to take a picture of him at the tennis courts at Skyview Community School, 1100 Heron Av. He told her he lost a bet with his wife. She took one photo and left.



Trespassers. A deputy checked on a report of a vehicle parked outside a gravel pit on 218th Street off Lofton Avenue. There was a no-trespassing sign near where the vehicle was parked. A citation was put on the windshield for a vehicle left unattended.



Junk vehicle. A vehicle in violation of the junk vehicle ordinance was reported parked in the 8300 block of Landon Avenue. The owner told police the vehicle had been in an accident recently and he wasn’t sure what he was going to do about it. He agreed to move it into a garage away from public view.


Crosswalk violation. A juvenile was issued a citation for a crosswalk violation at the intersection of Pioneer Drive and Bailey Ridge Road. An officer held the citation to allow the juvenile the chance to write and turn in a three-page paper about the incident. She did, and the citation was canceled.

Items are selected from reports made to police departments and are not intended to provide a comprehensive picture of crime.
