OMG PD: Magic-Marker Threat, Apartment Climbing

Here's a round-up of recent, bizarre police report items from the area.


A woman who moved out of an apartment in the 200 block of East Bailey Road two months ago returned to the apartment May 15 and asked the property manager if she could get her belongings. She was told by the property manager that the apartment was cleaned out and she was not allowed to enter, police said. A resident then saw the woman scale the balconies to get to her old apartment on the third floor, but she was not able to gain entry, police said.


Magic-Marker Shooting Threat

An apartment tenant on the 200 block of North Richmond Avenue wrote in magic marker on his door that "any trespassers will be shot," according to a police report. The person reporting said neighbors are scared about this. An officer at 4:33 p.m. May 7 spoke with the tenant, confirmed that he didn't have a gun and told him to clean the marker off the door.

The man hasn't paid rent in months and the landlord wants him out, the report said. The man said they have to formally evict him and that he knows the law.


His Hands Were All Over

Someone reported a man at 3:40 p.m. May 3 possibly urinating by some bushes on the northwest corner of 59th Street at Webster. The reporter saw the man's hands by his crotch, according to a police report. The man was last seen walking westbound on 59th Street from Main Street, but police could not find him. "The complainant advised he did not wish to sign a complaint, but did not like that the offender was doing this near a school," the report said.


A Serious Gamer

A brazen shoplifter made off with 33 PlayStation 3 games valued at $697.33 over the course of two visits on two days last week at a local big-box retailer.

, reported the theft at 10:34 p.m. May 10 after a store employee a day earlier discovered 33 empty game packages in the store’s Electronics Department.

The discovery prompted the store’s loss-prevention personnel to review surveillance video, where they discovered the thefts were done by the same individual who had visited the story during the evenings of Wednesday, May 8, and Thursday, May 9, according to police reports.
