May 4, 1998


What was reported to police as a robbery turned out to be a case of a restaurant employee trying to rid himself of a telephone conversation.

Police at 10:37 p.m. were called to Jimmy John's Gourmet Sub Shop, 1447 W. 23rd, where a robbery was reported.

Police arrived to find out that an employee of the store had told his roommate that he was being robbed because he wanted his roommate to stop calling him.

The roommate then called police and reported the robbery.

Police were investigating the matter Sunday night as falsely reporting a crime, rather than a robbery. No arrests had been made.

Pickup trucks collide

near Lawrence airport

A Kansas City man was admitted to Lawrence Memorial Hospital with injuries after the pickup he was driving was struck on the driver's side by another truck on Sunday afternoon near the Lawrence Municipal Airport.

Douglas County Sheriff's deputies and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical crews were called at 5:48 p.m. to the two-vehicle accident at U.S. Highway 24-40 and Douglas County Road 1500E.

Gary Neeley, Kansas City, Mo., was listed in good condition at LMH.

The black pickup truck that he was driving east on U.S. 24-40 was struck by a white pickup, southbound on East 1500 Road, that attempted to cross the highway after apparently running a stop sign, Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper L.T. Rushmeyer said.

A passenger in Neeley's pickup, along with a passenger in the white pickup, also were taken to LMH. The injuries were not considered serious, authorities said.

The names of the passengers weren't available.
