Second-degree theft, eluding and possession of drug paraphernalia at the corner of 4th Street and Indianola Avenue. Police were on patrol, when they spotted a woman get into a car. As they followed, the car stopped abruptly, and she got out quickly as if she were fleeing the car. She was holding her shirt down low enough to expose her bra, and her skirt was pulled up enough to show her butt. One officer pursued her on foot, while the other chased after the car as it sped away. He chased the car at speeds in excess of 120 mph north into Saylor Township, which is when it finally clipped a pole and rolled over. The driver was treated for injuries and detained. Cops found a crack pipe in the car, which turned out to be stolen out of Colfax. Another officer searched the woman and recovered another crack pipe that fell out of the woman’s crotch. They both went to jail.

Burglary at the 700 block of Locust Street. The witness was working alone in her cubicle on the seventh floor of her office building, when she spotted a man standing in the corner of the conference room across the way. When she asked him if she could help him, the man grunted, opened the window and disappeared down the fire escape. On Monday morning, the woman arrived at her cubicle to find an ottoman in front of her computer, and the computer was turned onto porn sites. A bottle of lotion was left on her desk along with a bodily fluid on the floor in front of her computer.

Burglary at the 1000 block of Amos Avenue. A fire alarm going off at Bridges Elementary School alerted neighbors to call the police. When officers arrived, they found a window, which had been boarded up from an incident the previous day, was knocked out again. While searching the building, they found a used fire extinguisher, the powder of which likely set off the alarm. CV
