June 9, 8:21 p.m. – An officer was dispatched to the Nab Plaza after a call came in about a drunken older man attempting to ride a bicycle.

After arriving the officer observed that the man was unsteady on his feet with a strong scent of alcohol coming from his breath and person.

On the bicycle the man had a water bottle full of alcohol and was at that point helped into the cruiser and escorted home where his parents took custody of him.

The officer then returned to Nab Plaza and spoke with local business owners there. A woman from the dance studio claimed to have seen him in the past and had called this time when she noticed his inebriation was much worse than usual.

She also stated that she was concerned that many of her younger students were present and witnessed his behavior. The officer advised that she could speak to the building about issuing a no trespass so that he could not return.

Next door, the officer spoke to the Tedeschi’s clerk who had been dealing with him for the past two hours. The clerk reported that when the man came back a second time to purchase a 40 oz. beer he refused to sell it to him.

He then told the man he had to leave but then allowed him to stay because it was pouring rain. He then said that after the rain stopped, the man attempted to ride his bike but kept falling over.

The Tedeschi’s clerk also stated that he did not want the man to come back and was aware of the steps that needed to be taken.

June 11, 10:30 p.m. – An officer was dispatched after reports of a neighbor dispute. A woman was complaining of that over the years there had been some issues between herself and her neighbor.

Recently, she had noticed different types of balls, mostly baseball sized, had been thrown, hit, or otherwise put in her backyard. Not sure what to do, she had come to the police for advice.

The officer advised her that he would speak with the neighbor in regards to the balls.

When the neighbor was contacted, he stated that his kids sometimes play baseball in his backyard and the balls must have been hit over the fence. He also stated that he would find another place for his kids to play.

June 10, 6:38 p.m. – An officer was dispatched to Nab One Stop after reports that a customer was harassing other customers. This particular customer was allegedly harassing other customers a month earlier, nearly leading to a no trespassing order at that point.

The representative of Nab One Stop requested that the customer be advised that he is no longer allowed in the store. The officer went to the customer’s house and informed him that if he returned to Nab One Stop, criminal charges may be filed.

June 11, 10:00 a.m. – One landlord called for an officer after repeated complaints from a tenant on School Lane complaining that neighbors had been stealing his cable and internet.
