Circleville Police reports for Nov. 6-12

by Craig Lovelace

November 6

3:47 a.m. – A Lewis Avenue caller said two individuals kept knocking on her doors and windows.

12:39 p.m. –  On Park Street, a male complained about a “beat up old, purple Dodge Dakota” that was parked in front of his house for two weeks. The caller said a construction company that was to work on his house needed to put a dumpster in front of the residence but can’t because of the truck. Police stuck on the truck a 48-hour notice to move the vehicle but eventually had it towed and impounded. The truck’s owner was cited because the license plates of the vehicle were fictitious.

3:01 p.m. – Someone turned in to the Circleville Police Department a wallet found in the 100 block of Town Street.

6:32 p.m. – A storage unit was busted into on East Ohio Street and personal items were stolen.

10:53 p.m. – Police were alerted to a male and female arguing on Watt Street in which the female was trying to get away from the male. The male was described as wearing a puffy coat and the female had her hair in a ponytail. The report indicated the pair were not fighting over the cart. (Are there more clues to this puzzle?)

November 7

8:43 a.m. – A Rosewood Avenue male requested a cab to take him to church services. However, he also said a police officer could fill the bill as well though emphasizing he was in no need of fire or EMS services. The man was advised of the proper uses for emergency-911 calls. (Favorite incident of the week.)

10:42 a.m. –  A male called police about a red, Ford Focus that has been sitting in front of a two-story white apartment building on East Main Street for two weeks. The caller said he gave the subjects, who were driving the vehicle, a ride to Columbus. However, he now suspects the vehicle is stolen because they gave him the keys to the car’s trunk. (Hmm, what’s next? Maybe sending him on a long journey in which he must toss a magic ring into a pit of volcanic lava?)

1:01 p.m. – A 12- and 9-year old were advised by police about using foul language directed at their grandmother. The juveniles’ East Mound Street mother called police and said the children were unruly, “cussing, and being disrespectful” toward their mamaw. (Maybe a taste of Lifebuoy Soap might grab their attention.)

November 8

12:01 a.m. – (This is the entire entry documented on an incident sheet occurring at a Kingston Pike address that is redacted.) “Officer marked out at the above location with a suspicious vehicle. All units clear. Male will be putting his pants on and leaving the area.”

2:22 p.m. – Police took a theft report after someone allegedly stole items from an East Main Street business. The report said a male wearing a blue bandanna over his face entered the establishment and took several things from the hair-care/ appliance area and put them into a child’s bookbag. He left the business and was last seen walking south on South Pickaway Street.

5:03 p.m. – A Maplewood Avenue woman claimed that a person [name redacted] threw a can of root beer at her. The alleged thrower missed, but the complainant wanted the incident documented. (Wonder what brand of root beer it was? What’s your favorite? The Pickaway Press enjoys Sprecher’s.)

9:10 p.m. – A Circleville woman was arrested when she refused to leave a Town Street residence. Lindsey Pyle, 26, was charged with criminal trespass, a fourth-degree misdemeanor, to which she pleaded not guilty Nov. 9 in Circleville Municipal Court. She has a Nov. 18 trial set in the same court.

11:37 p.m. – Concerned that a male might get hit by a vehicle, a North Court Street caller wanted police to check on a suspicious person wearing a construction-type jacket and jeans and standing in the middle of the road tossing leaves. The caller said after tossing one batch of leaves, the person would walk five feet and toss another batch. Police caught up with the male who said he was walking along the curb as he always does. (Busy bodies.)

November 9

12:22 a.m. – A Logan Street male reported hearing noises coming from an empty house next door to him and believes there are people in there. The police call slip wrote “nothing located.” (BOO!)

2:28 a.m. – Something happened on East Main Street, but whether it was at a residence or business is not indicated on a call slip. Also not detailed was what allegedly occurred, which is a pretty standard component for this type of report.
