THE OL’ BLAME GAME
Police were dispatched to Git-N-Go, 100 Watrous Ave., just after 1:30 p.m., regarding a counterfeit $20 bill. The employee had turned off the fuel pumps before the woman who had paid with the bill was able to get any gas in her car. The customer told police who she had received the bill from. Following up on that lead, the man she’d received the bill from fingered another suspect as the source, though it was discovered that this man had a Warren County warrant, so he was arrested. The man he had named as the true suspect is believed to be the same man who has been the recent subject on several “intel bulletins on officer safety,” according to reports. Investigations continue.
Police were called by a rental company at 2301 Second Ave. after a man who had rented a $23,000 compressor never returned it and was unreachable. Police went to the address on the rental agreement and found the home to be vacant and apparently abandoned. When they finally tracked down a relative, they learned the man was in jail for driving while barred. The property was recovered.
DRUNK AND DISORDERLY
A man, who was “highly intoxicated,” called police to at the 1500 block of Grand Avenue and said the suspect inside of his apartment for some reason started hitting him. He was too intoxicated to tell officers why exactly. Another victim told police she had taken a Klonopin and a couple Benadryl, then went to bed around 8:30 p.m. when the suspect started hitting her, too. She said the suspect punched her face and the back of her head, drug her by her hair and threatened to kill her. They didn’t know the suspect’s last name or where she lives. No arrests were made. CV
