Police Reports 5.13.14: Get off my lawn!


Hey you

Hey you there

Why are you at my house

Go away

That was my really poor attempt at a poem of some kind. But it does capture a theme in today’s police reports: Unwelcome guests. They might be people you know, heck, they might even be closely related to you. But if you say they gotta go, then they gotta go.

Also, the hit-and-run involving the dog is one of the saddest things I’ve read all month. 🙁 But be of good cheer, because we’ve got THREE 24K gold mug shots in today’s post. Enjoy.

A lady called to report a snake in her tree. Dispatch: “The tree and snake are pressed up to her window.” Wait, so the tree is creepin’ on her, too?


Mug Shots of the Day

Too many good ones today to choose just one. LADIES, Mr. David E. Castillo would like you to note his chiseled physique, and never mind about that domestic violence charge he’s facing. Our man in the middle, Mark Anthony Johnson, thankfully has a shirt on. Cool shirt. Cooler beard. Contempt of court charge – not so cool. And finally, there’s Lionel Trice (malicious mischief). What ya see up there, chief?
