- A car stereo, several compact discs and a CD case valued on a police report at $1,330 were taken between 1 a.m. and 9:35 a.m. Saturday from a vehicle in the 1300 block of West 24th Street.
- Police are investigating the alleged sexual battery of a small child nearly three years ago. A police spokesman said police were called Friday by the mother of a 7-year-old boy who reportedly watched a story about a child being sexually abused on the "America's Most Wanted" television show, then told his mother the same thing happened to him. The incident allegedly occurred between May and June 1992, in a private day care home in Lawrence. A woman who may have moved to Missouri has been identified as a suspect, but authorities have not contacted her, the spokesman said.
- A camper and miscellaneous contents valued at $8,500 were destroyed in what sheriff's officers classified as an accidental fire about 11:25 a.m. Friday, authorities reported today. A man was burning grass on his property about two miles south of Lawrence near county roads 458 and 1055, when the fire went out of control, crossed into a neighbor's property and reached the camper before Wakarusa Township firefighters could put it out, a sheriff's spokesman said. The camper, located near a pond, had been used for fishing, the spokesman said.
- Doris Harper, 36, Eudora, was admitted to Lawrence Memorial Hospital on Friday and released Saturday after being injured in an accident Friday afternoon near County Road 1061 and Kansas Highway 10. Harper was driving a 1994 Mazda south on 1061 and attempted to turn left onto a K-10 ramp when her vehicle collided with a 1988 Pontiac that was northbound on the county road. The driver of the Pontiac, Margaret Epperson, 30, 2265 North 1137 Road, was treated and released at LMH. Child passengers in both vehicles also were treated and released. No citations were listed on a sheriff's report.
