The new small-town crime thread

111 replies • Last post

Due to request from sharpe, I'm bringing back my small town newspaper's crime reports, which feature some very light complaints.

Here's some of the new batch from late last month, and this month. More will be added moving forward.

10:09 p.m. -- A 30-year-old Homer Township man reported getting suspicious text messages from an unknown subject. There are currently no suspects, and the man blocked the phone number.

1:51 p.m. -- A deputy was dispatched to an Ingersoll Township residence to speak with a 59-year-old woman regarding a civil complaint. The woman was upset her 30-year-old son had withdrawn and spent $500 from his savings account. The 59-year-old said he was acting irresponsibly. The deputy informed the woman that this was not a crime.

10:11 p.m. -- A deputy responded to the Village of Sanford in reference to a suspicious situation. The deputy made contact with a 55-year-old Lee Township woman who reported that her car had a flat tire while she was at work. She was not sure if the tire had been punctured maliciously or not, but she wanted the event documented.

12:05 a.m. -- A deputy was dispatched to a Mount Haley Township residence for a request from an 81-year-old woman to have her late husband's medications disposed of. The deputy picked up the unused medication and properly discarded it at the Law Enforcement Center.

lol

Yet again I am sadly amazed at the sorts of mundane things that people seem to think require police attention. I'm imagining the cops sitting back at the station, sipping a coffee and munching a donut, thinking "yeah now THIS is why I joined the force... to document flat tyres and throw old medication into the bin".

Yeah, talk about a total waste of resources when you can't throw your own pills in the trash and have to call the cops out in the middle of the night.

I wonder how withdrawing from your mom's account(and not your own) is not a crime though?

A new batch for you!

7:09 p.m. -- A deputy made contact with a Jerome Township woman in regards to how to evict her son from her house. The deputy answered her questions and she said she would seek eviction from the courts.

9:03 a.m. -- A 59-year-old Lincoln Township business owner reported being concerned about an over-the-road truck driver her company recently hired. She said the driver had contacted the office while on the road the night before and requested $400-$600 for a new GPS, stating that his had broken. The driver was driving a load from Coleman to Attella, Alabama. When he was denied the money he said he was turning around with the load and returning it. He also tendered his resignation. The deputy called the truck driver, a 42-year-old Gladwin man, who confirmed this. He later returned the truck and trailer to the business.

6:19 a.m. -- Deputies were dispatched to a Homer Township roadway area for a report of horses in the road. The owner of the horses, a 66-year-old woman, was contacted and came to the scene and secured the horses.

5:31 p.m. -- A deputy was dispatched to an area in Larkin Township in reference to a loud explosive-like sound. The deputy made contact with a 27-year-old man at his residence who said he had been shooting Tannerite -- a type of explosive target -- which was the source of the sound. The deputy found no illegal activity and the man said he was done shooting for the day.

4:10 p.m. -- A deputy made contact with a 77-year-old woman at her residence in Jasper Township. She said her pets were acting strange, and feels someone had been at her house. The woman found keys belonging to someone else, and a handwritten list of items that belong to her that she doesn't remember writing. She found this suspicious and wanted it to be documented. The woman's residence is well-secured and has video surveillance. No subjects were found on the video and it appeared no one had entered the residence.

9:44 p.m. -- A 59-year-old Ingersoll Township woman was upset and accusing her 30-year-old son and his children of taking her medications. After an extensive search the medications were located and she calmed down.

But horses on the road...that could be quite dangerous I guess.

These people live so far out that it’s hard to imagine them being a huge nuisance. The Amish driving the horse buggies are WAY more dangerous.

2:56 p.m. -- A deputy was dispatched to a Lee Township residence in reference to a harassment complaint. A 39-year-old Lee Township woman and a 35-year-old Lee Township woman both reported being harassed by each other through text messages. Both women were advised to block each other's numbers, and to leave each other alone.

1:15 p.m. -- A 54-year-old Edenville Township woman reported that her grandson, 16, was not following rules and was acting out. Deputies contacted the boy and mediated a resolution between the two. All parties involved were calm when the deputies arrived.

Yeah, these are published by our local paper. Someone is hired to go through the police blotter and transcribe them all.

My last message was cut in half and didn't get posted for some reason, it mentioned that the people in the areas mentioned should feel lucky they have these types of issues instead of what could be so much worse. Sounds almost like heaven on earth with the magnitude of crimes such as a cow poo stinking up cars and a son not saving his money properly lol

The news read very funny and tedious to us, but probably, they were pretty serious with the issues at the moment so that they called police Smile

Yeah, you got the point. It is lucky not to have serious crimes.
If something bad happens in neighborhood, it will affect many people indirectly.

10:39 p.m. - A deputy issued a deer permit to a 60-year-old man in Homer Township.

This one rings close to home, as today I was coming back from a doctor appointment and had a deer run full speed in front of my car. I was maybe three feet from schmucking the thing and needing to get a permit to harvest some venison.

8:28 a.m. - A 56-year-old man in Edenville Township reported hearing voices around his house and having hallucinations. He admitted to using illegal drugs recently and was transported for a mental health evaluation.

4:04 a.m. - A deputy checked a Coleman neighborhood for a report of a male yelling and did not hear anyone yelling.

8:40 p.m. -- Deputies were dispatched to a Jerome Township residence in reference to a 54-year-old Jerome Township woman requesting assistance with her dog, which was stuck on the roof of her residence. The dog was safely removed.

12:38 a.m. -- A deputy was dispatched to a MillsTownship residence in reference to a 35-year-old man who stated he found some unusual marks in his drywall. The man said it appeared the damage was from a coin being thrown at his wall. He said he does not think someone broke into his home, but wanted to report the incident due to it being unusual. The 16-year-old girl also living in the residence said she does not know what the marks are from.

3:09 a.m. -- A 38-year-old Larkin Township woman reported someone banging on her front door. Deputies did not locate any footprints in the fresh snow, but did find bird feeders hitting a post on the porch, which the woman believed was likely the source of the sound.
