August 5th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

Shortly after 2 a.m., Police received a report of two teenage males "14-17 years old" who were dressed in all black and acting suspicious behind a strip mall in the 1500 block of Wakarusa Drive. Officers arrived in the area and quickly spotted the two subjects not far away. Both subjects ran from the Officers, southbound on Carmel Drive. The officer reported losing sight of the subjects near the intersection of Carmel Drive and Carmel Court. As officers set up a perimeter to search for the subjects, one was approached by an employee of Brandon Woods, who informed officers that several residents reported people knocking on their windows around the same time. After a little more than an hour of searching, officers broke down the perimeter and returned to normal patrols.

While the search was underway in Lawrence, officers in Baldwin City were on the lookout for a male who was seen breaking into at least one vehicle and using a flashlight to look into other vehicles, in a neighborhood on the east side of town. Officers were quickly able to locate the man and he was taken into custody. He has been booked into the Douglas County Jail on four counts of Burglary to a Vehicle, and is currently being held on a $10,000 bond.

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

This morning started out pretty quiet. Police in Lawrence responded a couple disturbances, a theft, and a non-injury accident, all before 4:15 a.m..

Around 4:15 a.m., Police were dispatched to a residence in the area of W 4th and McDonald Drive for a report of an Aggravated Burglary. The resident told Police that he awoke to find a thin black male, approximately 5'10" tall, was inside the house. The unknown man fled through a backdoor of the home and was last seen running westbound from the 300 block of McDonald Drive. He was said to be wearing all black clothing with a do-rag.

Then, at 5:57 a.m., Police were dispatched to a residence about a block away from Deerfield Elementary School on a report of another Aggravated Burglary. The second address is just under a mile away from the first Aggravated Burglary report. Officers quickly responded to the area and began searching for the man. This time the description of the man was a little more vague, a "smaller build," unknown race male standing approximately 5'9". Again the subject was said to have fled through a backdoor. An officer patrolling that area reported making contact with a male on foot in front of Deerfield Elementary School.

After further investigation, Officers determined that the male was involved in the most recent Aggravated Burglary. The man was arrested and has been booked into the Douglas County Jail on charges of Aggravated Burglary and Obstruction of the Legal Process. Currently there only appears to be one count of Aggravated Burglary and Police continue to investigate whether or not the same suspect was involved in the earlier burglary of the address near W 4th Street and McDonald Drive.

Kanwaka Township Fire responded on a small grass fire this morning near the 400 block of US Highway 40. The fire was quickly extinguished by firefighters. No damage was reported to any structures.

Lawrence Fire crews responded to investigate the odor of what the caller believed to be natural gas, in the area of 31st Street and Ousdahl Road just after 7:40 a.m.. The Fire Department also reported an odor in the area of the Walmart, 3300 Iowa Street. Shortly after the call was dispatched, Emergency Dispatchers received a call from Southern Star who reported they were "venting mercaptan" in the 1900 block of W 31st Street on H Street. Lawrence Fire responded to that area to make contact with the utility workers, who reported that the venting would continue for approximately 30 minutes. Firefighters cleared from that scene before 8 a.m..

A busy morning for Lawrence Firefighters and Police.

At 2:27 a.m., firefighters were dispatched on a dumpster fire in an alleyway near 13th and Vermont Streets. At 3:35 a.m., an additional fire crew was dispatched to a dumpster fire in an alley near 12th and Tennessee Streets, about three blocks from the first fire.

The second caller reported that the building was evacuated and flames were reaching higher than the building's roof. A full alarm structure fire assignment was dispatched and arriving crews reported a "large dumpster fully involved." Those crews were able to very quickly determine that the fire had not extended to the building itself. The fire was knocked down and reported to be under control within 15 minutes. There were no reports of damage to the nearby building and no injuries were reported.

Police also responded on two non-injury accidents. The first was reported in the 2200 block of Yale Road at 2:50 a.m.. The second was reported in the 3000 block of Kasold Drive at 4:30 a.m.

Shortly after 2:20 a.m., Firefighters from several township fire departments responded to an address in the 500 block of N 1200 Road for a report of a barn fire. First crews on the scene reported that the "smaller barn structure" was fully involved in flames. Tender (water tanker) units from at least two townships responded to assist with a water supply to fight the fire. No injuries were reported and no word if this morning's weather played a role in sparking the blaze.

Almost two hours later, around 4:15 a.m. as crews were beginning to clear from the Clinton township fire, emergency dispatchers received a report from a passerby of a residential structure fire in the 800 block of N 1850 Road, between Lawrence and Lecompton. Deputies arrived on scene first and reported that the rear of the house had flames showing from the both levels. Fire crews arrived, reported the same findings and began attacking the blaze. A countywide Tender (water tanker) response was ordered for a water supply. Crews began clearing from that scene around 6 a.m.. Initial reports indicated that the home was believed to be vacant. Again, no injuries were reported and no word on what may have caused the fire. More on this fire can be found here from the Lawrence Journal-World.

Back in Lawrence, throughout the early morning hours Police were dealing with several weather related issues. Most included the power outage, which at one point LJW reported were near 3,500 customers. Officers checked on and reported several traffic signal outages. Police also responded on numerous burglary alarms triggered by the power outage and other weather related issues.

Officers also made an arrest involving burglary of a vehicle and unrelated arrests for an outstanding warrant and another for stalking.

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