Here is the blotter from Friday, Jan. 18:
9:42 a.m. A woman on Hamilton Street reported that someone
threw a beer bottle at her window and broke it. I don’t know if it was a house
or a car. Either way, no fun.
10:39 a.m. – Prisoner injured at the jail, bad enough that
he/she needed to be transported to the ER. I’m putting some calls in on this
and will update when I have more.
* Update: That was, in fact, John Flacke, who as some may remember was arrested three times last week
. According to police, he complained of injury and was evaluated, but nothing was wrong, he was just trying to get out of going to jail.*
11:07 a.m. – Reports of possible mail/credit card fraud.
At 7:19 p.m. there was a
request of a welfare check on someone’s 6-month-old son. I assume that
is a typo or something, since who leaves a 6 month old alone? Anyway, no
contact and the scene was clear, also adding to the idea that it is not as it
2:01 a.m. on High Rock Avenue there was some sort of
disturbance, possible break-in and someone’s 17 and 20 year old sons ran
outside chasing someone. The police ended up searching the construction area at
the Courtyard Marriott. They didn’t find the guy, though, and a report was
The blotter from Saturday, Jan. 19:
Someone had their purse stolen at the library Friday
There were also a lot of dog complaints Friday. A beagle
puppy was found milling about on Lake Ave. The owner was found in that case,
but later a Boxer was found running around on Adams Street but it was brought
to the shelter.
A little while later, in a cliché brought to life, a mail
carrier was chased by two Rottweiler’s . Those dogs were secured by the owner.
Saturday night saw an interesting non-dog-related call (sort
of) that began when a woman went next door to her neighbor and asked him to
Evidently, the man she had been on a date with earlier that
night thought the two were connecting when she did not. After the date, Nathan
J. Thomas, 35, of Harwich Lane in West Hartford, Conn. kicked in her door on
Caroline Street and then passed out on her couch, according to the police
He was charged with a couple of misdemeanors and was
sentenced to a dateless future, if Google has anything to do with it.
Here is Monday's blotter from Sunday.
The morning started with someone reporting their car was struck overnight on Wagon Wheel Terrace, but it is
less than $1,000 in damage and they didn't want a report.
In the afternoon there were some reports of
wires, signs down, what with the weather.
There were a couple of domestic incidents reported, one of which
will be in the blotter tomorrow.
At 7:41 p.m. there was a report of a man who didn’t want to
pay his bill and also didn’t want to leave the City Tavern. He eventually left,
but didn’t pay, and it took police intervention to work out.
At nearly 5 in the morning there was a report of a car
sitting sideways in the road on Lincoln Avenue with someone unconscious behind
the wheel. It appears that he struck a tree, though was not intoxicated. He was
transported to the ER for treatment.
