July 26th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up


Around 1:40 this morning, Police were called to the 2300 block of W 26th Street after a report of two males breaking windows of vehicles and stealing items from inside. Officers arrived about a minute after being dispatched. A few seconds later officers reported two males running through the parking lot. Both men were captured and taken into custody about two minutes later. It was not immediately clear how many vehicles were broken into and/or damaged in the incident.

The rest of the morning's activity mostly centered around the passing weather. More on this morning's weather can be found here from my earlier report for the Lawrence Journal-World.

One accident was reported this morning around 7:40 a.m., in the 200 block of N Iowa Street. Police arrived on scene of what was believed to be a non-injury accident, when asked if they would like Fire/Medical to respond, one of the involved requested a medic unit. Medics responded to the scene around 7:50 a.m., no serious injuries were reported.

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.
