Sometimes people can't even...
A guy called and claimed that 1500 dollars was stolen from his truck. He then asked if he could come down to the station to get his money back. I explained to him that we would have to catch the suspect and then he would be paid back through restitution if the suspect is found guilty. The guy wasn’t happy with that answer. He figured he could just come down and the police department would give him his $1500 bucks. He said nevermind he didn’t want to make a report and hung up. The guy was clearly lying. I’ll bet he felt like a genius and thought he figured out some way to get free money. (anoncop1)
Domestic dispute call – We got there and the mother of a teenage boy, maybe fourteen, is loud and upset. Her problem was described as, “He’s interested in GIRLS!” Oddly enough, it happens around that age. Not a thing I could do about that one. (IanRG)
Getting in the Game
My friend had to respond to a “noise complaint” of some “young suspicious African Americans” playing Basketball in their cul de sac, they were staying out of trouble and just enjoying themselves. It was like 5pm, he showed up with his partner and they ended up playing a pickup game in full uniform with the boys. It made the local news (BPSteve)
