11 disturbances and the second morning in a row with a strong-arm robbery

This morning's numbers are just a little bit different from yesterday morning. Lawrence police conducted 10 vehicle stops between midnight and 5 a.m.. Only two DWI related arrests this morning, one from KUPD and one from LPD, and both of those also include charges for the driver refusing to be tested.

Here is a look at some of the numbers from Lawrence Police this morning;

  • 11 Disturbances
  • 2 Noise complaints
  • 2 Non-injury accidents
  • 1 Trespassing complaint
  • 1 Strong-arm robbery

At 12:20 this morning, Eudora Police and a Douglas County deputy were called to check for an erratic driver eastbound on K-10 approaching Eudora. A 911 caller was following the vehicle and reported the driver was all over the roadway and possibly left the roadway entirely at one point. The caller followed the vehicle to the Church Street exit and then north. Eudora Police caught up with the driver at the Kwik Shop. No arrests were recorded related to the incident.

Just after 12:40 a.m., Lawrence police were called to an address in the 600 block of Michigan Street on a domestic disturbance. A man was eventually arrested and faces charges of criminal damage to property and escape from custody. While he was being transported to the County Jail apparently he was trying to open the door of the patrol car that was transporting him. It was not clear if he slipped his cuffs completely, was able to get his hand in front of him or what exactly prompted the escape charge. The officer driving the car did call for assistance at K-10 and Franklin, about a block from the jail for help detaining the subject again.

At 1:15 a.m., Police were called to an address in the 2400 block of Ousdahl Road for a possible burglary in progress. The resident reported an unknown male in his 20's opened the front screen door of the home and then tried to open the main door. After finding the front door was locked, the man then made his way to the resident's vehicle parked nearby and tried to open the doors. Police arrived and the man was arrested for criminal trespassing and an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in municipal court.

Officers were called to the intersection of 9th and Massachusetts Street at 2:45 a.m. following reports of a fight in progress, and one subject with a bloody nose. Medics were also dispatched to stage in the area. After breaking up the fight, medics treated one person for what were described as minor injuries.

A Mil-Spec security officer called Lawrence Police at 2:50 a.m., to the 1000 block of W 23rd Street after witnessing a non-injury accident. Apparently Mil-Spec told dispatchers that they were detaining the driver after she attempted to flee from the scene of a collision with a parked vehicle. LPD arrived and eventually arrested the driver. She now faces charges her second DWI, in addition to refusing a test and no proof of liability insurance.

At 4:55 a.m., Lawrence Police were called to the Dillon's at 1015 W. 23rd Street following the strong-arm theft of nine cartons of cigarettes. The suspect, described as a heavy set black female, reportedly shoved an employee to get to the cigarettes and then fled in a red Buick passenger car. According to scanner traffic, it appeared that officers have had similar incidents with a suspect vehicle matching this description. It was unclear if the actual suspect description matched or just the vehicle.

December 22nd and 23rd Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire Medical wrap up

Saturday, December 22, 2012:

Shortly after 1 a.m., Police were called to the 1200 block of Oread Avenue to receive information on the theft of a vehicle. The caller reported that the vehicle was left running unattended in front of a business when two unknown males drove away in the car. An officer checking the area found the vehicle abandoned in an alley near 14th and Ohio Streets. Police did not have a description of the alleged suspects and no other information was available.

At 1:35 a.m., Police and Fire Medical crews were called to 2400 Alabama Street for a reported structure fire. Police arrived on scene just under three minutes later and reported that the fire appeared to be out. Fire Medical crews continued into the scene and confirmed that the fire had been extinguished. Officers did request a Report Number and established a small perimeter for a brief period. There was no information regarding what was on fire, where the fire was in the building or if it was suspicious in nature. No injuries were reported. This address is just under one-quarter of a mile from the area where there have been numerous suspicious fires in occupied apartment buildings. More on the previous fires and the investigation of them, can be found here from Lawrence Journal-World reporter Shaun Hittle.

At 1:22 a.m. Lawrence Police were called to the 2600 block of Belle Haven Drive on reports of what two callers believed to be gunshots in the area. Three officers checked that area and did not report locating or hearing anything suspicious.

About an hour later, at 2:19 a.m., Police were called to investigate a disturbance involving a man said to be armed with a crowbar at an address in the 1600 block of Lindenwood Lane. Police quickly reported that the scene was stable. No injuries or arrests were reported.

None of this morning's activity was reported to have involved any serious injuries.

Lawrence Police on five disturbances this morning. One of those, in the 900 block of Massachusetts Street at 2:02, reportedly involved two subjects with baseball bats. Five police officers responded to the area and did not report locating anyone fighting, arguing, or carrying baseball bats.

At 2:32, Police were called to a domestic disturbance in the 3100 block of Ousdahl Road. One person was arrested. That person now faces charges of Domestic Battery and Criminal Damage to Property. No injuries were reported.

At 2:33, Police and Fire Medical crews were to a different apartment in the 3100 block of Ousdahl Road after a subject reportedly fell from a third level balcony to the ground. Medics reported the man's injuries to be critical and requested dispatchers order a LifeStar helicopter be ordered. LifeStar responded and landed in the Home Depot parking lot, 1900 block of W 31st Street. The man, said to be in his early 20's, was transported to the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas. Initial reports indicated that the fall was accidental in nature, and occurred after the man had been consuming alcohol.

Shortly after 3 a.m., Police received information on a theft of wheels from a vehicle which was parked in the 1300 block of Tennessee Street. The vehicle's owner reported that he believed he knew who was responsible for the theft. No word whether or not his theory was correct or if the property has been recovered this morning.

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.
