Pair Cited for Public Intoxication Redux on Randall Road

The following information was supplied by the Geneva Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

Most likely, there's more to this simple Geneva police blotter item than what meets the eye, and perhaps there is a sad backstory. Still, the item itself raises so many questions, it's hard to know where to begin.

  • Why are two people of disparate ages out drinking in the wee hours?
  • What are two Oswego people doing in Geneva late at night?
  • Did the twosome think moving a few blocks down the road would make them less likely to get caught?

Geneva police cited the same two people they cited a few weeks ago—Anthony Krause, 24, of Oswego and Donald Cox, 54, of Oswego—for public intoxication in the parking lot of a business in the 1400 block of South Randall Road.

This time, the duo was cited at around 3:46 a.m. Dec. 1.

In the previous incident, they were cited at 10:41 p.m. Nov. 19 in the 1800 block of South Randall Road. The citation carries a $50 fine if paid by its due date.

Another previous police blotter item indicates that Krause, whose residence was listed in Wheaton, was arrested on Sept. 24 on charges of battery in the Delnor Hospital parking lot.
