May 18th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up
Lawrence Police checked on an apartment in the 1700 block of W 24th Street at 3 a.m.. It was not clear what led officers to the apartment however, once they arrived a man ran from officers on foot. That man was captured a short distance away. The man has been booked into the Douglas County Jail where he faces charges of Cultivation/Distribution of a controlled substance, no tax stamp and obstruction of the legal process. These charges total $22,000. No other details were immediately available.
Officers conducted five vehicle stops this morning. Police also removed some traffic cones from the roadway in the 500 block of W 11th Street. Apparently someone placed traffic cones in the roadway blocking traffic from continuing westbound. The person who called in the roadway obstruction did not report seeing anyone place the cones there.
LPD Officers investigating an alarm found a subject who claimed that he was locked inside the building when the alarm was set, and when he exited the alarm activated.
Police also investigated a non-injury accident in the 1500 block of Kentucky.
None of this morning's activity resulted in any serious injuries.
The Johnson County Sheriff's Office says they will be conducting two check lanes this weekend, one of which will be somewhere in western Johnson County, according to a news release. More information can be found here from Operation 100 News.
