Law enforcement report

Burglaries and thefts reported

¢ A 31-year-old Lawrence man was arrested Thursday without incident at his residence on charges of aggravated battery. According to Kim Murphree, Lawrence police spokeswoman, police were called to the Lawrence Memorial Hospital emergency room at 1:30 a.m. Thursday for a possible stabbing. According to a police report, the suspect reportedly hit Cullen Rice, 20, of Lawrence, with a bottle after a verbal altercation at Rice's residence. According to the report, Rice suffered lacerations and had to undergo surgery before he was later released.

¢ Lawrence police arrested two male suspects from Topeka on Thursday night in connection with one of two armed robberies that occurred at two convenience stores Thursday night, said Sgt. Michael Monroe. One man was a driver and the other was a passenger. Lawrence police responded to the first armed robbery about 8:30 p.m. at Kwik Shop, 845 Miss. Monroe said the suspect reportedly showed a large kitchen knife, took all the money from the register and headed west on foot. The second armed robbery occurred about 9 p.m. at Kwik Shop, 1420 Kasold Drive. Monroe said police are investigating whether the first robbery is associated with the second.

These thugs are possibly in trouble in Topeka as well. They come to Lawrence for easy pickin's. Besides, the crack trade is rolling into Lawrence. Small time sales are profitable because the dealers can go to Kansas City or Topeka and spend $50 on crack and then sell it in Lawrence for three times that amount. Day trips to the cities and daily profit from sales in Lawrence keeps them in the business. When they hit a dry spell with cash flow and don't know anyone except crackheads their only way out is to rob or steal from someone so they can get back into the game with the daily small time crack peddling.

The Topeka paper should take note on this topic, considering it's their trash that's doing it.

Was there any mention of the wreck on K-10, Thursday morning? I was on the other side of the highway but it looked really bad--A little west of Eudora.

Isn't that special? Not a mention in the JW or for that matter the community information site for arrests and briefs nor is there a media release from the lpd. Must not be important enough to alert the general public or is it bad publicity for the city's image?

The Topeka paper is taking note of the recent armed robberies around Lawrence.
