September 5th Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up


A fairly average Monday morning, considering it is a long holiday weekend for most people.

Lawrence Police were called to numerous noise complaints, conducted about the normal number of vehicle stops and disturbances.

Just before 2:20 a.m. LPD and LDCFM were called to the 2400 block of Redbud Lane on reports of a cooking fire in an apartment. LPD arrived and found that the occupant of the apartment had extinguished the flames with a fire extinguisher. The fire department arrived and confirmed that the fire was confined to the stove and did not spread to the walls or cabinets.

There was not much information given about it but, there was a reported armed robbery in the 2500 block of W 31st Street just after 3:30 this morning. Details on this are few and far between at this point.

Again, this was not in Douglas County but, there was another injury accident on K-10 just before 4 a.m. in Lenexa. One vehicle was involved and from initial reports it is believed that the 31-year-old male driver fell asleep behind the wheel and the vehicle struck a bridge guard wall. The accident occurred over Mill Creek, which is about one-half of a mile west of Ridgeview Road. More information about this crash.

The activity blogged here is only a sampling of some of the things that Douglas County Law Enforcement and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical respond on. To see a complete list of Lawrence Police activity, the department has that available on their website along with several easy to use maps that show approximate locations for Police activity.
