BAIL BOND BULLY
A 20-year-old man called police around 9 p.m.
on June 12 after two men got out of a white
van at his Southeast 8th Street home and pulled
a gun on him claiming to be a bail bondsman.
One of the men handcuffed his wrist and said
he had a warrant. When the alleged victim’s
mother asked to see the paperwork and more witnesses
arrived, the men said they didn’t have paperwork
and that it was a misunderstanding; they had
the wrong person. They reportedly said they
worked for “Ellis.” The witnesses told police
the same two men had been to the house about
six months ago and had entered the residence
and walked around looking for someone.
Police were called to Water Works Park around
7:30 p.m. on June 12 regarding calls from witnesses
who said several teenagers had set fire to a
pile of brush beneath a train bridge. The witnesses
reportedly yelled at the kids, who fled on foot.
The fire department arrived to extinguish the
flames. No property damage was reported, and
no suspects were identified. CV
