July 25th Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

After a night of numerous disturbances, everything was quiet in Douglas County for the majority of the night. It was one of those nights where I found myself continually looking at the scanners to make sure they were still on and working.

Police did respond on several smaller disturbances, mostly domestic in nature. There were also the usual noise complaints, noisy neighbors and loud vehicles passing by. Several car stops as well with Lawrence Police and County Deputies.

July 24th Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

Numerous disturbances reported in the early morning hours in Douglas County. The earliest was just before 1:45 a.m.. KU Public Safety spotted a group of people who appeared to be fighting in the area of 14th and Ohio. The Officer requested backup and responded in to contact the subjects. Those subjects were contacted and they quickly informed the officers that there had been a white male involved who was threatening people with a baseball bat. That subject was reported to have left the area on foot northbound. After giving Police that information the other subjects became uncooperative in the investigation and attempt to locate the man with the bat. Police were forced to give up on searching for the man due to witnesses not giving any more information.

Shortly before 2 a.m. Lawrence Police were called to the 2500 block of west 6th Street on reports of several females fighting. Apparently the fight crossed 6th Street at one point and there was a large group that had gathered to watch the fight, who also wandered out into the roadway. Police arrived and were advised that the females involved had all left in vehicles. No other information was available on this fight.

Shortly before 5 a.m. Douglas County Deputies responded on a report of an armed disturbance in the 100 block of Ames Street. Initially a male subject called 911 and advised dispatchers that someone had pointed a gun at him. That phone call was disconnected. When dispatchers called back, a female subject answered and told dispatchers that there was not a problem and Deputies did not need to respond, she then disconnected the call again. Dispatchers informed the Deputies of this and informed them that they could hear a male voice in the background who wanted to speak to dispatchers. Deputies arrived and contacted the subject. No weapons were mentioned and it did not sound as though anyone was taken into custody.

July 23rd Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

The night started off as a pretty quiet one.

Early in the night, Lawrence Police responded on several small and domestic disturbances throughout the city, along with several noise complaints and conducting several car stops. At least three drivers were faced with field sobriety tests. At least one, that I heard, was arrested for Driving Under the Influence and taken to the Douglas County Jail.

Just after 2 a.m. Lawrence Police were called to respond to the intersection of 10th and Massachusetts Street. Emergency dispatchers received a single call about approximately 20 subjects who were physically fighting on the sidewalk near the intersection. Three Officers were just around the corner when the call came out and arrived at the intersection in under a minute from the time the call was dispatched. Those Officers advised that they were not locating anything that matched what the caller described. The caller stated that a subject who appeared injured had walked into a business in the area. That subject was never located by Police.

Around 4 a.m. Lawrence Police responded to the 2400 block of Winterbrook on reports of a carjacking. Officers arrived and contacted the reported victim who advised that they had been carjacked by two men, at least one of which was armed with a handgun. The suspects left in the victims Blue Cadillac. The victim believed the vehicle was last seen westbound on 24th Street. It was unclear if the victim knew one of the suspects or how it occurred but Police believe they know the name of one of the suspects involved. It sounded as though a victim was transported by LPD to the hospital.

Shortly before 4:30 a.m. LPD was called to check on a car accident near Centennial Park in the area of 6th and Iowa. Police arrived and found the accident. The driver advised they were uninjured initially. However, was requesting to be seen my Medics a short time later. Injuries were minor and I do not believe anyone was transported from the scene by ambulance.

July 22nd Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

Back to another pretty quiet overnight in Douglas County after the Thursday morning armed robbery. The suspect from that robbery remains at large. He is described as a black man, standing 5' 6", weighing 150lbs. At the time of the robbery he was wearing all black clothing and had a white shirt covering his face. He was armed with a black handgun.

As for last night, Police did not have a whole lot of activity to respond on outside of the fairly routine. Several noise complaints, disturbances and car stops.

LDCFM responded on, what seemed like quite a few medical related calls overnight. None of the activity, that I heard, involved any serious injuries.

July 21st Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

After almost a week of pretty quiet overnights, Lawrence Police had a busy night on their hands last night.

Just before 3:30 a.m. Lawrence Police responded to the Kwik Shop at 845 Mississippi Street after a reported armed robbery. The victim advised officers that a black male subject who was last seen wearing all black and had a white sweater covering his face. The man was armed with a black handgun according to the victim. The suspect was last seen running northbound on Mississippi Street. Police did conduct several car stops in the area during minutes following the incident. It did not sound as though any arrests had been made.

While investigating the armed robbery and searching for the suspect, LPD was bombarded with calls for service including; a prowler, several disturbances and a fireworks complaint. Police were stretched pretty thin for a time.

July 20th Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

As anyone who has read the blog this week can tell you, its been a quiet week. Last night was no exception.

Lawrence Police responded on a number of fairly routine calls; noise complaints, disturbances and also conducted several car stops. LPD also checked on a few burglary alarms. All of which it sounded like were false alarms.

KUPD also responded on a report of an audible alarm on campus. Officers responded and found it to only be a door bell at one of the delivery docks that was stuck on and sounding constantly. They were able to fix the issue and the noise stopped.

If there was more to add to the blog, I would. There simply was not much activity worth reporting this morning.

July 19th Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

One more pretty quiet night in Douglas County. Overnight the National Weather Service extended the Excessive Heat Warning until 7 p.m. Saturday.

Lawrence Police were involved in a very short foot pursuit. It was unclear what the subject was wanted for but he did attempt to run. From the time an Officer called out on the radio that he was in a foot chase with a subject, it only took about 20 seconds before that same Officer was on the radio again saying that he had the subject in custody.

LPD also responded on a few noise complaints, minor disturbances and made numerous car stops.

Shortly after 5 a.m. KUPD reported seeing what they believed to have been a transformer explosion just off of campus. A housekeeper on campus also reported seeing the blue flash. The only outage that they could see, involved street lights in one of the parking lots on campus. Those lights were out for about 5 minutes before they turned on again. Westar Energy is not showing any outages in Douglas County this morning.

Shortly before 1:30 a.m. this morning Lawrence Police were dealing with a subject who had become combative with Officers. The Officers that were out with the subject, at 23rd and Massachusetts, requested assistance from another Officer and the Sergeant. Those units responded and the subject was back to behaving himself.

A pretty high number of car stops overnight by Lawrence Police. LPD also responded on about the usual number of noise complaints for an early Saturday morning. A few more disturbances than usual, nothing that resulted in any serious injuries.

Police did respond on report of at least 10 subjects fighting near 14th and Ohio. One of the callers advised that the Bartender from The Hawk was outside trying to break up the subjects that were fighting. When LPD arrived the subjects quickly scattered.

LPD also responded to the 800 block of Massachusetts Street on reports of a male subject who had displayed a gun and a knife. Police arrived to investigate and the reporting party changed their story, or at least had second thoughts about whether or not the man had a knife or just a gun. The description of the man was vague at best. It was unclear whether or not Police were able to locate the man or not.

Some storms rolled through the area early last night. One of which decided that I needed to take a break from most of my scanners. I was among the thousands of KCP&L Customers in Johnson County that lost electricity around 9 p.m. The outage knocked me down to only my two handheld scanners that run on battery power. So I was still able to monitor LDCFM. My outage lasted until about 11:40 p.m.

LDCFM was pretty quiet after 10:30 p.m. when I started listening. Lawrence Fire units did respond on several reports of power line When my electricity was restored, I started monitoring Douglas County Law Enforcement, which was also surprisingly quiet.

LPD responded on several burglary alarms, most of which seemed to be related to the weather. Police also responded on several burglaries, including one around 4:30 a.m. at Walgreens that involved an unknown subject taking a woman's purse from her car in the parking lot.
