Police Report



11:22 a.m. - Elizabeth Crock, 613 E. South St., advised her dogs started barking so she looked out the window and saw a man standing on her carport. She said when the man saw her he got into his vehicle and left. She gave a description of the man and his vehicle.



8:49 a.m. - Officers responded to a domestic dispute on St. John’s Road, where a male was trying to smash car windows and a cell phone and was causing problems.
