Breaking up was hard to do, but breaking in, not so much, according to a couple of incidents that made it into the Port Allegany Police Department log in the week that began Monday, October 25 and ended Sunday, October 31.


Last Tuesday at 2 p.m. Chief Dave Distrola tried to serve a notice for removal of an unregistered vehicle which was parked along Maple Street near China Light. The vehicle owner was not home, so the matter was referred to the second shift.


At 4 p.m. Officer Kyle Day was asked by the Pennsylvania State Police to stop a motorcycle in the north end of town in connection with an incident on Two Mile Road. He stopped the motorcycle, collected Jeremy Tanner’s information and released him. The basis of the requested stop was not known by local police.


At 5:30 p.m. Day did serve that notice concerning the unregistered vehicle parked along Maple Street. The owner is Bobbi-Jo Saltsman.


Last Wednesday at 2 p.m. Chief Distrola received a complaint concerning someone speeding down Oak Street when school lets out. The caller alleged that Matt Fryer was driving a green Saturn and going too fast. The call was passed on to the next shift.


At 1 p.m. last Thursday a stray dog was turned in. It was held overnight. The owner, a Brooklynside resident, picked up the pooch the next day.


 Saturday at 2:10 p.m. Officer Day received a parking complaint concerning a truck that was blocking the exit path for the ambulance. Day located the owner and the vehicle was removed.


At 10:45 p.m. Officer Tony Tanner got a call for criminal trespass on Smith Avenue. A resident had found her door still dead-bolted, but a window had been opened. The resident said she thought her former roommate might have entered the residence, because the only thing thought to be missing was the roommate’s laptop computer. Investigation continues.


At 1:55 a.m. Sunday Tanner received a complaint for criminal mischief said to have occurred on Pine Street and Broad Street, where two men had been observed entering and rifling through a vehicle belonging to a neighbor. The person who observed the incident may be able to identify the perpetrators. The owner of the car reported nothing missing. Investigation continues.


Sunday at 2:24 p.m. Officer Day was called by a female juvenile who reported that a Roulette young man was involved in an altercation with her boyfriend and had been making unwanted attempts to contact her. She did not want charges filed. Day spoke with the alleged pesterer and advised him to discontinue his actions.


At 3 p.m. Day stood by while Josh Pearsall removed his property from the porch of the Michele Kanouff residence. Day gathered that Pearsall was an ex-roommate and needed to recover his belongings.


At 7 p.m. Day got a report of a minor vehicle crash on Park Lane Drive. There were no injuries and both vehicles could be driven. Indications were that the vehicle driven by Garrett Kio had struck an unattended vehicle owned by Kenneth Main. Day advised the parties to exchange information.


At 7:20 p.m. Officer Adam Dickerson was dispatched to Park Lane for a reported domestic. There a resident complained that his ex-girlfriend’s mother had nearly struck him with a car while picking up his kids. He stated that he did not want charges filed, but he wanted the matter entered in the police log.
