AUGUST 19, 2012

  • A 44-year-old woman passed away in the garden of her home on Graham Ave. She was found on her knees in the garden. She had health issues but her death was unexpected.
  • An anonymous person reported that a car was driving all over the roadway and almost struck their car. The officer found the car driving on Elm St just passed Parker Rd. It drifted into the westbound lane and appeared to be all over the road. The driver smelled of booze and had an open Budweiser container in his middle console. He admitted to drinking 10 beers at his brother’s birthday party before driving home. When asked if he had anything in the vehicle the officer should be aware of, the man replied, “my kilo of marijuana.” The officer asked why he needed a kilo and the man said to sell it. The man then said he was just kidding. He was arrested for DUI – he had two prior DUI arrests and was driving with a probationary license. No kilo of marijuana was found.
