Night Shift
14-11227        Disturbance/Warrant Arrest        220000 Block of Lechelt Road
A male at the location called in a disturbance.  Dispatch overheard voices in the background saying no one was in the house and a verbal argument started between a male and female. Upon arrival the male reporting party said his sister took off right before we arrived because she had a warrant. An area check was done, but she was not located. The next night we went back and set up on the house. The reporting party's sister was taken into custody on her warrants without incident.
14-11275        Suspicious Circumstance         195000 Block of E. Game Farm Road
A resident at the location called in to report a noise outside of his house and his dogs were barking. He called back a few minutes later and said a male was in the back of his pickup. Upon arrival a male jumped out of the truck, got into another vehicle, and tried to drive away. A felony stop was conducted and the male was taken into custody. After a lengthy investigation we discovered the suspect was sent to the location by his friend to check up on a girl who lives at the location that his friend is dating. When he got there a pit-bull chased him into the bed of the truck and kept him there until we arrived. The suspect gave consent to look at his call log and text messages to confirm his story. The information was checked and confirmed. The family did not want to press charges.
