June 4th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

For anyone that was monitoring one of the online scanner feeds this morning, around 3 a.m. you may have noticed that the feed seemed to go silent for a time. I do not normally listen to the online feeds, as I have scanners of my own capable of monitoring the system. I turned to the online feeds this morning to see if the issue was on my end or something system wide. After finding nothing more than silence on the online feeds and then reprogramming my scanner, I discovered that the county had simply rebanded their radio system. The online feed that I tried earlier in the morning (RadioReference.com), has also been rebanded now, after I contacted the feed provider about the issue.

Police in Douglas County didn't seem to have a whole lot going on this morning. Officers in Lawrence responded on two disturbances, one was reported to be domestic. No injuries or arrests were reported.

Douglas County Deputies were dealing with an underage person who was found intoxicated and then made a mess in the back of one of the patrol cars. That person was transported to LMH by deputies for possible alcohol poisoning.

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

Plenty of activity this morning in Lawrence.

Police conducted 13 vehicle stops, with two resulting in OUI arrests.

Officers also responded on four disturbances, three of which were reported to be domestic related. Two of the domestic disturbances resulted in arrests being made. One of those arrests includes multiple charges including; Aggravated Burglary, Criminal Damage to Property, Aggravated Intimidation of a Witness/Victim, Kidnapping, and Domestic Battery.

At 4:32 a.m., Lawrence Police were received a 911 call from a female reporting that two men, one armed with a gun, attempted to force her into a nearby motel room. The woman reported that she was able to get away from the men and call for help. When Police arrived at the location of where the incident reportedly occurred, they found the two men the caller had described. Other officers attempted to contact the reporting party who apparently left the area. As officers were unable to contact the victim in the case, most officers cleared from the call.

While investigating the call involving the men attempting to force a woman into a motel room, Police discovered that they were in contact with a man who has warrants for his arrest. Dispatchers were able to confirm the warrants, which were from two Kansas counties, and the man was arrested. He has been booked into the Douglas County Jail to await extradition on those warrants.

Just before 7 a.m., Police and Fire crews were called to an address in the 1200 block of W 20th Terrace after a report of a Molotov cocktail was thrown and damaged a vehicle.

Also new this morning, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office is investigating after a body was discovered Thursday, in a rural area east of Lawrence. No other information was immediately available. More on this investigation can be found here from the Lawrence Journal-World.

May 31st Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

Lawrence Police were kept pretty busy this morning. Officers investigated several auto burglaries as well as what was believed to be a domestic issue which had escalated to a vehicle being damaged.

The domestic related issue was reported around 2:30 a.m. and was said to involve a male damaging a parked vehicle with a baseball bat or golf club. From the sounds of the scanner traffic, Police were receiving conflicting stories on what happened. One person was reported to have been arrested around 3:30 a.m.. That person faces charges of Criminal Damage to Property and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

While investigating at least two auto burglaries in the area of the 1300 block of Tennessee Street, a Police Officer reported being involved in an accident. No injuries were reported in the accident but, it sounded as though the Police vehicle sustained significant damage, as Officers requested a "rollback tow truck" to remove the vehicle.

One person was also arrested for trespassing in the 1400 block of Tennessee Street during all of the activity surrounding the auto burglaries. It was not immediately clear if the trespassing arrest had anything to do with the auto burglaries or was completely unrelated.

Another incident this morning in Lawrence involved a male, wearing nothing more than a pair of boxers, "kicking in" a door to a residence. It did not sound as though the victim was familiar with the suspect. The suspect was seen walking away from the scene. It was not clear whether or not Police were able to catch up with the man or not.

Officers also responded on two accidents this morning. The first was reported shortly after 7:30 a.m. near the intersection of 19th and Iowa, no injuries were reported. The second accident was reported in the 1800 block of W 2nd Street about 7:40 a.m.. Police on that scene requested a medic unit to respond non-emergency for minor injuries. Two people were treated on the scene for minor injuries.

Police requested a medic unit respond to the scene for minor injuries. The suspect was not transported by ambulance from the scene and has been booked into the Douglas County Jail. The male suspect faces charges of ranging from OUI and Interference with a Law Enforcement Officer to drug related charges.

The rest of this morning's activity was fairly ordinary for Lawrence until shortly before 5 a.m.. Police received a report of an aggravated burglary in the 1200 block of New York Street. More than five officers responded after emergency dispatchers reported that the 911 caller said he was hearing someone in a lower level of the address. The first LPD officer to arrive reported an unsecured door on the back of the address. When backing officers arrived they cleared the house. No one, other than the resident, was inside.
