Police to auction evidence Shopping for a bicycle? Computer? Stereo equipment? Check with the Lawrence Police Department Saturday. Hundreds of items that have been held by police as evidence or that were lost and never found by the owners will be auctioned starting at 9 a.m. The auction will take place at the Lawrence City Traffic Engineering building at Fifth and Mississippi streets. About 150 bicycles will be auctioned, along with car stereos, jewelry and compact discs, police spokesman Sgt. Mike Pattrick said. Computers and other miscellaneous office equipment also will be on the auction block. __________________________ Change of season: Summer officially begins Summer began at 1:38 a.m. today. June 21 is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. Almost 15 hours of daylight will herald the first day of summer in the northern hemisphere, which, at this time of year, has its greatest degree of tilt toward the sun. Days will get progressively shorter until Dec. 21, the winter solstice and shortest day of the year. __________________________ Crime: Former Southwest teacher arrested A former Southwest Junior High School teacher was booked Tuesday into the Douglas County Jail on a charge of taking indecent liberties with a child. The 32-year-old Lawrence man resigned last month after Lawrence Police began investigating him for allegedly having an inappropriate affair with a ninth-grade female student. The suspect was released from jail on a $10,000 recognizance bond. A preliminary hearing has been set for 3 p.m. July 3 in Douglas County District Court. The Journal-World generally does not identify suspects in sex crimes unless they are convicted. __________________________ Gasoline prices: Pump patrol at work The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as $1.319 a gallon at the Site station at 23rd Street and Haskell Avenue. If you find a lower price, please call us at 832-7154. Be prepared to leave the name of the business, the address and the price. Or go to www.ljworld .com/section/gasoline to join our Pump Patrol message board with your gas price information.
