Reckless use of fire at the 1000 block of Porter
Avenue. Police were called to Lincoln High School
after a 9th grade teacher reportedly witnessed
two boys using a lighter and an aerosol can
as a “homemade blow torch.” There was a prior
incident that went unreported in December when
the teacher saw a large flame beneath/beside
the table where the boys were seated. He had
explained the consequences of their actions
and warned them not to do it again. This was
the second incident with the two boys, so this
time the cops were called. This time another
student reported witnessing them spraying cologne
onto the tabletop and lighting it on fire. After
admitting what they’d done, both boys were placed
on delayed referral to Juvenile Court Services.
Jan. 12, 3:50 a.m.
Public intoxication at the 6000 block of Chaffee
Road. Police were dispatched to an apartment
complex multiple times throughout the night
regarding noise from a party. Police warned
the resident to shut the party down and stay
inside, as they could tell she was intoxicated.
When they arrived there again regarding a separate
incident, they saw the woman walking in the
hallways twice, and at one point, she appeared
to be tampering with the fire extinguisher mounted
on the wall. As officers proceeded with arrest,
she allegedly became combative. They found a
pot pipe and prescription pills with someone
else’s name on the label in her possession.
She was arrested and charged with possession
and assault on a police officer.
Jan. 12, 4:52 a.m.
Burglary at the 3400 block of Merle Hay Road.
Police responded to an alarm at Christopher’s
Fine Jewelry and found the glass door was broken
with a block of concrete. They observed fresh
footprints in the snow leading to and away from
the door and followed them into a parking lot
where there were also fresh tire tracks. They
discovered several coins were missing from a
display as well as other collectible currency
from a desk drawer and a number of Silver Eagle
Silver Dollars. CV
