A Charger charged a tree, a bike charged a flower box, neighbors were (clothesline) poles apart, a married couple yelled at each other but were non-violent, two women also engaged in verbal hostilities, and charges of statutory sexual assault may be pending. These were among matters that required police attention in the week that began Monday, June 20 and ended Sunday, June 26.
Last Monday at 10:30 p.m. Officer Adam Dickerson received a complaint about kids making a lot of noise in a Mill Street neighborhood. Dickerson contacted the youngsters and told them to refrain from disturbing the neighbors.
At 2:30 a.m. last Tuesday Dickerson got a complaint about a verbal domestic disagreement at Penny Lane. He found that Amanda Haight and Heather Kimball were arguing, but that no one wanted to press charges. He advised both to discontinue the verbal hostilities or there would be charges.
Last Tuesday morning at 10:30 a.m. Chief Dave Distrola was contacted about harassment of a juvenile said to be carried out via Facebook. He spoke with the juvenile and the parents and advised them that continued behavior of that kind could result in harassment charges. He told the juvenile to refrain from contacting the other Facebook user.
Ten minutes later Distrola went to Pearl Street in connection with property issues. A clothesline pole had been removed. Apparently the remover had not known it was on the owner’s property, and agreed to talk to the owner and replace the pole if so requested.
At 1:50 p.m. a mother requested that the police pick up her child and bring her to the mother, in connection with a child custody situation. Distrola advised her to contact a friend for transport. The mother explained that there is no court order concerning custody, so Distrola advised her to contact an attorney.
At 2:15 p.m. Distrola was dispatched to the corner of Volney Street and East Benton Avenue for a vehicle crash. Investigation revealed that Josh Rosenswie of 218 Catlin Avenue, driving a white 2006 Dodge Charger, left the road and struck a tree. Rosenswie complained of a minor injury and was taken to Charles Cole Memorial Hospital by ambulance. Charges are pending.
At 8 p.m. Officer Dickerson received a call concerning possible criminal mischief on Harrison Street. At the scene Dickerson found that a juvenile had wrecked his bike, colliding with a flower box and damaging it. The juvenile’s parents came by and agreed to pay for the damage.
Thursday at 10:30 a.m. Chief Distrola received a complaint of a property dispute on Railroad Avenue. He checked things out and then advised the complainant to contact the office of the magisterial district judge.
At 3:45 p.m. Friday Officer Tanner was called about a possible domestic altercation at an East Mill Street residence. Once there, he learned that a husband and wife were arguing but there was no physical violence. They were advised to avoid “further issues” so that no charges would be filed.
Saturday at 1 p.m. Officer Kyle Day receives a complaint of harassment that was said to have occurred on Main Street. A female juvenile came to the police station to complain that other female juveniles were calling her names. Investigation is ongoing and charges may be pending.
At 9:22 p.m. Officer Tony Tanner received a complaint of loud music emanating from a Church Street residence. He advised the occupants to turn the music down.
Sunday night at 9 Officer Dickerson received a complaint alleging statutory sexual assault where an 18-year-old is said to be having sex with a 14-year-old. The matter is under investigation and charges may be pending.
