A 56/m in the 1900 block of N. Rock says he woke up Tuesday morning and his Jeep was missing from his apartment complex parking lot. He says he has the keys for the Jeep and there was no glass on the ground where it was parked. He says the vehicle was loaded up with his personal possessions because he was in the process of moving.
Stolen while running…
A 28/f says she left her car running in the parking lot of her condo. The car was stolen. The car didn’t have a valid tag because her boyfriend loaned her a tag. She says the front bumper of the car is “just hanging there” from a previous wreck. It also has a Chiefs sticker in the back window.
Not sure what happened here…
A 40/f says she sold her car to a scrap yard last year and accidentally left the tag on it. When registration came up for renewal, she accidentally renewed the tag. The tag now shows it it registered to a crushed vehicle.
Car break-in at the hotel…
A 61/m says someone smashed out the rear window of his rental car and stole property that belongs to him and the company he works for. The car was parked at a hotel in the 500 block of S. Julia at the time. Loss is estimated at more than $1,000.
Not falling for it…
A 60/m says someone called him on his work cell phone and told him that he won “millions of dollars” and that he needed to purchase a Green Dot Card and put a certain amount of money on it. He knew it was a scam and didn’t fall for it.
A 42/m reported that an employee in the 2400 block of N. Maize was making returns for cash without a customer present. That employee didn’t show up for the last three shifts and has since been terminated.
A man reports getting a phone call from an inmate at an out-of-county detention facility. The caller said he was going to kill a woman and her children because she refuses to get him out of jail. The caller is in jail pending trial for a drive-by and gun-related issues. The man who reported the incident said he’s in fear of his own safety and refused to provide his personal information to police. He says the inmate has beaten him up on a number of occasions in the past.
I can’t remember…
A 97/f called police to report the loss - or possible theft - of some of her money at the assisted living facility where she lives. She didn’t want to make a report because she wasn’t sure if she had spent the money or if she hid it for safe keeping. Hospital admin requires a report any time property comes up missing.
