Trash pickers go a little too far
Just after noon on Tuesday, a resident at 31 Veranda Ave. called police that two males in a white pickup were going through his trash. The caller said they had also tried to take some items from the side of the house.
Two officers were sent to the home to investigate. In the meantime, a call came in from 94 Marston, reporting almost the exact same circumstances.
The trash pickers were gone by the time officers arrived.
Good Samaritan steps up
Tuesday at 8:16 p.m., police received a call from a woman, distraught because she had left her purse at Haffner's gas station. The woman said she planned to call her bank and credit card companies to cancel all of her cards.
However, less than 20 minutes later, a second woman walked into Police Headquarters and said she had found a purse at Haffner's that had been left there and that she was hoping it could be returned to the owner.
Officers gladly accepted the purse and took it to the home of the owner to return it.
