Defiant texting, broken eggs but no omelet, and marauding woodchucks were among the matters that people called the Port Allegany Police about in the week that began Monday, July 11 and ended Sunday, July 17. There were a drug overdose, some trash talking, and allegations of forged divorce papers.
Last Monday Officer Tony Tanner went to 80 Pearl Street around 9 p.m. because of a complaint that female juveniles were texting Allen York and Becky Hurd, apparently in a way that was unacceptable to the complainants. Tanner told the juveniles to stop, but they refused, so charges are pending.
At 5 p.m. last Tuesday Officer Adam Dickerson went to 804 North Main Street because of a report of a motor vehicle crash. He found the incident to be non-reportable, and advised the drivers to exchange information.
Last Wednesday morning at 10 Chief Dave Distrola was contacted by Terry Feronti of Johnsonburg about a car Feronti said he had at Transformation Restorations. Distrola told Feronti that the business he sought is not available but he could try contacting Daugherty’s auto body shop.
At 2 p.m. Distrola received a complaint from Carl Larkin Jr. of Jamestown, N.Y. about his father’s allegedly forging divorce papers. Distrola advised him to contact Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) because the complainant’s father lives outside the borough.
At 7 p.m. Officer Dickerson received a complaint from someone who lives outside the borough, who said that woodchucks were getting under her porch and into her flower bed. She was advised to call the game protector or PSP.
Thursday at 10 a.m. Chief Distrola received a persistent harassment complaint from Laura Fillhart of East Mill Street, who claimed Breanna Miller was calling her names and yelling obscenities toward Fillhart’s apartment as she drove by. Distrola spoke with Miller and advised her that further behavior of this kind will result in charges being filed.
At 5:45 p.m. Officer Dickerson went to the scene of a motor vehicle crash on Main Street. He found the incident to be non-reportable and advised the operators to exchange information.
Friday morning at 8 Chief Distrola was dispatched to Church Street for a report of a line down. It appeared that the line was non-electrical. The 911 agency notified Verizon and Zito Media. The line had been struck by a Dollar General delivery truck. The driver was advised to notify his insurance company and store owner.
At 8:45 a.m. Distrola helped a motorist with a vehicle lock-out at Sheetz.
At 6 p.m. Officer Dickerson was dispatched to a North Main Street address where a female was reported to have ingested 32 Trazodene pills. She was transported to a hospital.
Sunday morning at 10:51 Officer Kyle Day received a complaint of criminal mischief on Catlin Avenue, where a person or persons had egged a parked car.
Shortly after noon, Day received a similar report of a parked car being egged, this one on Hickory Street.
At 9:15 p.m. Officer Tanner received a complaint of a burglary at 70 Pearl Street. Londa Baker said three juveniles had entered the residence without permission. Investigation continues.
Tanner discovered two male juveniles out after curfew at 2:50 a.m. Monday. They are first time offenders so they received written warnings.
