OCTOBER 16

INFORMATION REPORT 

At approximately 7:49 AM, an officer was dispatched to the 4500 block of Mockingbird Lane in response to a report of a possibly intoxicated female inside a parked vehicle. The officer observed damage to the woman's vehicle and found the woman asleep in her car with the doors locked. Although the officer could smell an alcoholic beverage on her person, there were no other signs consistent with intoxication. Her vehicle had to be impounded because it was blocking a driveway. 

BURGLARY OF BUILDING AND THEFT OF PROPERTY 

Police responded to a reported theft in the 3500 block of Princeton Avenue at approximately 7:52 AM. The victim stated that she believed someone had entered her detached garage overnight without consent and stolen four bicycles. The theft occurred at some point between 11:00 PM the night before and 7:30 the next morning. There were no signs of forced entry. 

CREDIT CARD TRANSACTION LAUNDERING 

At approximately 3:00 PM, an officer was called to the lobby of 4700 Drexel Drive to deal with a report of credit card abuse. The victim advised the officer that her 17-year-old daughter had been dealing with stalking and harassing behavior from a male classmate at her school.

The charges on the card were for pizzas, which were delivered to the address of the stalker.
