Among reports filed with police:

Suspicious behavior

Newcastle Street: It was like a scene straight from a horror film. The door knob rattled, as if someone were trying to come in. The house resident didn’t expect visitors, though, and called the police. When police arrived, there was no one to be seen.

Foundation Lake Drive: A strange man had been circling around the apartment. And hiding in the bushes. So the apartment’s resident called the police, who arrived and told the creep outside to leave.

Entering auto

105 Glynnvilla: A confused car owner made the mistake of trying to enter someone else’s vehicle. That car’s owner called the police, who arrived and helped the man find his own vehicle.

10 Comanche Rd.: Someone plundered through at least four vehicles at Heritage Estates and stole items from two cars.

410 Brentwood Circle: A thief took $30-$40 worth of change from a man’s truck but left the compound bow.

Shoplifting

150 Altama Connector: Three women attempted to steal from Wal-Mart by placing several items in their purses and trying to exit the building. They failed.

Marijuana possession

K Street: The driver really didn’t want the police to know she had marijuana on her person, so when she was pulled over for a traffic violation she tried to swallow the weed. Her plan didn’t work. She was arrested.

Burglary

Sunbelt Way: A man arrived home after being out of town for several weeks and found his house lights on and back door wide open. He came inside to find he’d been burglarized.
