August 26th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

Around 1:27 a.m., Lawrence Police and Fire/Medical were called to an address in the 1600 block of Tennessee Street on reports of a person struck by a vehicle. Police arrived on scene quickly and reported a male with critical injuries. Medics arrived on scene and almost immediately requested that dispatchers check on the availability of a LifeStar Helicopter and of the University of Kansas Medical Center to accept a critical trauma. LifeStar was unable to fly due to weather in the area, and KUMC reported they were able to accept the patient. The man was transported by ambulance to the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas.

A driver involved in the accident was reported to be detained by Police and transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for a blood draw. As of this report, it is unclear if that driver has received any citations or faces any charges. There is also no update on the victim's status available. A report on the accident can be found here from the Lawrence Journal-World.

At 2:07 a.m., Police were called to the area of the East Hills Business Park on a report of a subject firing a gun from a vehicle. As officers were responding on the call, dispatchers learned that the incident occurred approximately 30 minutes before anyone had call 911 to report it. The caller only provided dispatchers with a very vague description of the vehicle involved. No injuries or damage were reported.

Fire/Medical was dispatched on a fire alarm at Ellsworth Hall on the University of Kansas campus shortly before 4:30 a.m.. Dispatchers reported receiving alarms from two separate rooms. KUPD located burnt macaroni and cheese in one of the rooms and firefighters confirmed that was the source of the alarm. Many residents were evacuated from the building while firefighters were on scene. Everyone was allowed back into the building a short time later.

August 24th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

Lawrence Police set up a perimeter this morning in the area of 19th Street and Naismith Drive for a subject involved in what sounded like, at the very least, an aggravated burglary. A woman reportedly awoke to find a man in her home. The man left and Police were called. There are a bunch of details surrounding this incident that are not completely clear and I have notified my partners at the Journal-World of these details. They will be checking on those and working to confirm them. I am sure there will be a story up on the website if there is anything worthy of reporting. I don't want to spread rumors or speculation of something that I am not confident of it's accuracy.

Around 3:30 a.m., Westar was showing approximately 130 customers without electricity in the area of Clinton Parkway and Kasold Drive. There was no word on the cause of the outage. As of 9:30 a.m., outage numbers are down to only two in Douglas County.

Lawrence Police conducted several vehicle stops. Three of those stops resulting in arrests. Two arrest for OUI related offenses and the third was for no proof of insurance.

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

August 20th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

After a Sunday morning filled with internet connectivity issues, thanks to a neighbor's tree taking down the service line to my home, the blog is back.

Sunday morning was mostly quiet, considering it was following the first Saturday night since the majority of students had moved back into town. A few alcohol violations, minor in possession, and open container violations, along with the usual indecent exposure citations for urinating in public. None of Sunday morning's activity was reported to have involved any serious injuries.

Also, I am sure the Journal-World will have more on Saturday night into Sunday morning's check lane and saturation patrol as soon as full results are made available from Law Enforcement.

As for this morning, things were almost abnormally calm throughout the county.

Lawrence Police responded on two disturbances. Officers also conducted four vehicle stops and cited numerous parking violations.

At 7:40 a.m., Police were called to an address in the 1700 block of Mississippi after receiving a report of an intoxicated female who had possibly forced her way into a residence. Officers arrived quickly and found a man and woman, both reported to be intoxicated, on a porch. The female was eventually taken into custody for trespassing and criminal damage to property. The criminal damage charge is believed to be related to damage done to a screen when the woman was making her entry into the residence.

Not too far outside of Douglas County, firefighters just outside of Tonganoxie responded on a report of a house fire just before 2 a.m.. A man and his daughter reportedly awoke to a barking dog, to find a fire in the basement of the home at 20356 Parallel Road. Both people were able to escape from the house and call for help from a neighbors home. Firefighters arrived to find flames visible through windows. Initial reports indicate that the fire was believed to have been sparked by an electrical issue in the home's basement. The State Fire Marshal's office is on scene investigating this morning.

Back in Lawrence, Police investigated a couple nuisance complaints, disturbances and conducted several vehicle stops.

Officers made three arrests this morning for trespassing. The first two occurred around 2:15 a.m. in the 2500 block of W 31st Street. The third arrest occurred around 6:45 a.m. after an unknown man walked into an apartment in the 1300 block of W 24th Street. The man reportedly helped himself to one of the bedrooms and laid in the bed. He was quickly arrested. It was not immediately clear if the door was left open, unlocked or why it was so easy for the man to simply walk in.

Shortly after 4:30 a.m., Police and Fire/Medical responded on a report of a structure fire in the 5000 block of Clinton Parkway. The caller told emergency dispatchers that there was a smoke odor and the building's fire alarm was sounding. Firefighters arrived to report nothing showing from the exterior of the building. Upon further investigation the source of the odor was determined to be burning food. Medics evaluated one person on the scene, inside the apartment where the burning food was found. No one was reported to have been transported by medics from the scene.

Lawrence Police conducted three vehicle stops this morning, one resulting in an OUI related arrest.

At 3:40 a.m., Police were called to a North Lawrence gas station where a man was reporting that he had been the victim of a robbery. The man reported that he had been robbed by a cab driver after receiving a ride from Topeka to Lawrence. The man claiming to be the victim said that the cab driver left before allowing him to collect personal belongings from the cab's trunk. One of those stolen personal items, the man claimed, was a backpack containing $20,000. At the request of officers on the scene, Dispatchers contacted the cab company to get the cab driver to return to the scene. The cab company reported that the man, now claiming to be a victim, had not paid for his cab ride and the cab driver was already most of the way back to Topeka. Eventually the cab driver returned to the scene in Lawrence and the man who made the claim of being the victim was taken into Police custody. That man has been booked into the Douglas County Jail where he faces charges of Criminal Damage to Property and Theft of Service. It was unclear if any of the man's belongings were ever in the trunk of the cab or if he ever had a backpack containing $20,000.

Officers also reported making an arrest for Domestic Battery shortly before 4 a.m..

As of this report (8:15 a.m.) Police and Fire/Medical are on scene of a possible hazardous material recovery at Burcham Park, 200 Indiana Street after an officer located a "1ft x 1ft white cooler with a lot of duct tape on it and a substance leaking from it." Crews are securing a perimeter and awaiting the arrival of a hazardous material team. No other information was immediately available regarding this incident.

A busy couple of hours this morning for Law Enforcement in Douglas County.

At 2:04 a.m., Lawrence Police received a report of a possible stabbing, related to a domestic disturbance in the 1700 block of W 24th Street. Officers arrived and quickly determined that no one had been stabbed. At least 10 officers were involved on the call at one point. One person was arrested at the scene on Battery charges. Several others reportedly fled from the scene in a vehicle, prior to Police arriving. Law Enforcement caught up with those individuals a short time later on eastbound K-10 near mile marker 13. All three were taken into custody and later booked into the Douglas County Jail. One of them faces a charge of Domestic Battery, while the other two face a single count each of Battery.

Just as Police were getting a handle on the disturbance call, a call of an injury accident was dispatched in the 700 block of Locust Street at 2:24 a.m.. The caller reported that a car had struck a pedestrian. Police, along with Fire/Medical responded to the scene. Officers arrived at the scene to learn that the person who had been struck by the vehicle had left the scene and entered a nearby residence. Officers made contact with people at that residence, who initially said to have been uncooperative. Medics did not report transporting anyone away from that scene.

At 2:44 a.m., Police were called to investigate a possible attempted burglary at an address in the 100 block of Hanover Place.
