March 10th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up
As I was beginning to monitor this morning, around 1:45 a.m., Lawrence Police were already on scene of a residential burglary in the 1400 block of Ohio Street. It sounded as though the suspect fled in a vehicle with a Kansas license plate. Witnesses told Officers that the vehicle fled "towards campus." No other details were immediately available.
Also as my morning was just beginning, Lawrence Police were on the scene of an armed disturbance in the 2700 block of Bonanza Street. No injuries were reported at this scene, one person was arrested for aggravated assault.
Lawrence Police responded on a total of six disturbances this morning. No serious injuries were reported.
Officers were called to investigate what the caller believed to be drug activity in the 1100 block of Natalie Drive around 2:15 a.m.. One person was taken into Police custody for possession of drug paraphernalia.
Two non-injury accidents also occurred this morning. The first was in the 1000 block of New Hampshire Street at 2:30 a.m., and the second just after 4 a.m., in the 2100 block of Harper Street.
Police also cited numerous parking violations and responded on a few noise complaints.
Fire/Medical was called out just around 6:30 a.m., to investigate an odor of Natural Gas along Tennessee Street between 9th and 11th Streets. Crews reported a "faint" odor at 10th and Tennessee and requested a response from a Black Hills representative. LDCFM remained in the area and reported that the odor had dissipated when the Black Hills rep arrived in the area.
None of this morning's activity resulted in any serious injuries.
