Menacing – Trellis Way/Main St – A young teenager reported that while he was walking down the street a white car stopped in front of him for no reason. The teenager said he rose his hands and arms and asked the driver if there was a problem. The teenager went on to say the driver got of the car and lifted his shirt revealing a handgun stuck in his waist band. The driver then got back in the car and drove away. The teenager reported that he then continued to walk down Main St. Deputies tried calling the teenager several times as they could not locate him but eventually found him near the fire station. Deputies flooded the area in search of the suspect car with no results. 

Theft – NW Jarvis Pl – A male and female were in the process of breaking up when the female took a puppy she gave the male for Christmas. The female told deputies that the male didn’t deserve the puppy so she took the puppy and refused to give it back. Deputies explained to her that whether or not she believed the male deserved the puppy, she can’t just take it back as that is theft. The male refused to press charges for the theft and said he would work with the female’s family to get the puppy back. The male was able to get the puppy back without further police intervention.
