Police report

  • Lawrence police took a 35-year-old Lawrence man into custody early Sunday for carrying a concealed weapon after he reportedly had a semi-automatic handgun in his back pocket during a dispute. Police were called about 1 a.m. Sunday to the Union Pacific Depot, 402 N. Second, after a verbal confrontation occurred outside a wedding reception at the depot. The man left the scene on a motorcycle and threw the handgun into the grass, where police retrieved it. The man denied pointing or threatening to use the gun, police spokeswoman Sgt. Susan Hadl said.
  • Police arrested three Lawrence teens -- 18, 17 and 16 years old -- early Saturday after discovering a .45-caliber handgun inside the vehicle they were occupying, police reported. About 12:45 a.m. Saturday, police stopped their vehicle in the 1000 block of Massachusetts after one of the passengers squirted a foot-patrol officer with a water pistol in the 800 block of Massachusetts. The gun was in plain view when the vehicle was stopped, Hadl said.
