Police were called in reference to a disorderly person. The responding officer found a man standing on his front porch, who immediately said, “She’s in the house with a knife and a loaded shotgun.”
An officer grabbed his shotgun out of the trunk and took cover near the front corner of the house. He began to yell for the woman who was supposedly inside the house. Unknown to the officer, the man went around to the back door and emerged through the front of the residence. He said that she was no longer there, and that the gun had been replaced. The officers secured the residence and then put both shotguns in the patrol vehicle. The man said that he had been at home, on the couch, when the woman arrived. He told her she could not be there, because she had been banned from the property. She refused to leave and then became irate when the man refused to hand over his Oxycontin prescription. She went into the kitchen and pulled out a knife. She threatened to cut her wrists if he didn’t turn over the prescription. Another man came into the residence and helped get the knife away from the woman. Then he left. The woman went and got a shotgun, wrapped it in a towel and stuck into the complainant’s stomach, saying “I know what to do with this.” It was then that the man fled the residence and called for help. The officer located the second man, who had helped disarm the woman when she had the knife. He asked the man why he left the residence, and he stated that he “did not want to be around that crazy bitch.” The officers located the woman based on a suggestion from the complainant, they found her, but she was under the influence and could not provide any information about what happened. She was arrested for a variety of charges and transported to CCDC.
• A woman called police to complain that the neighbor’s children have been messing with her mail, going through it, and sometimes taking her magazines. She stated that she has sat in her foyer and watched the kids go through several nearby mailboxes. She also told police that in one particularly egregious incident, one of her magazines went missing for 10 days, then showed up back in her mailbox covered in food stains and fingerprints. The officer spoke to the children and explained to them that messing with other people’s mail is a federal offense, and that they could get in a lot of trouble. They told the officer they wouldn’t do it again.
• An officer heard loud music coming from a blue Buick as it passed him on Henry Street. He conducted a traffic stop and found that the driver did not have her license on her. She provided some information and her license was confirmed through the system. She was also uninsured, but told the officer “as far as I know I have insurance.” She was issued three traffic citations, and then asked the officer where she could get cheap insurance. Her vehicle was towed.
• A police responded to a burglary at five a.m. Someone had smashed in the delivery door of a Thomas Square business and grabbed the cash register with $400 in cash. A K9 was brought in to search the building. Some loose change was seen on the floor of the business, and in the lane behind the building. A canvas of the area was done but turned up no additional leads.
• A woman reported her identity had been stolen and that she had been receiving suspicious mail for someone named Ciera Jones.

Shortly thereafter, the woman began receiving mail for Ciera Jones.
