Albany and O streets: A dopey dude committed a traffic violation in front of a city cop, leading to a traffic stop. Police found dope inside the vehicle, surprise surprise. Also, he had the seemingly prerequisite suspended driver’s license. So, it was off to jail for this 30-year-old slacker.
1411 Stonewall St.: A distressed women called police, saying a brigand forced his way into her car and lifted some loot. Responding cops found the malicious malefactor nearby.

Glynnvilla Apartments: A man called the cops in a state of agitation, seeking intervention with a stranger who was banging at his front door after hours. The stranger was known to the man, it turned out.

He’s On Foot Now
Fourth Street and Hardy Avenue: A patrol officer spotted a Chevrolet Malibu violating the rules of the road while traveling in the opposite direction.
