* June 2 -- A female resident on NW 2nd Street reported the unauthorized control of a vehicle. The woman told police there was an argument and a Sandborn man took her car without permission. She attempted to get the car back without success. In the presence of an officer, she again ordered the man to return the car but he indicated he would not and told her to "find it." She said he had her keys and also her cell phone. Officers located the suspect and the car and were able to recover the car, keys and phone. An investigation is ongoing and charges may be filed at a later date. LPD Cpl. Paul Clark is the investigating officer.

* June 2 -- A Sandborn man, Harold Scott Alsman, 23, was arrested at approximately 11 p.m. on a valid arrest warrant issued out of Lawrence County. Officers were investigating another complaint that led them to speak with Alsman. They were aware of the warrant and he was taken into custody when they located him at his mother's residence. The warrant was issued for failure to appear in court on a charge of public intoxication. The investigating officer, LPD Cpl. Paul Clark, was assisted by LPD Det. Josh Goodman.

* June 2 -- Police investigated a complaint of criminal mischief at the Bottoms Up Bar on E. Vincennes Street. When the bar closed at 3:30 a.m. on June 1, everything was fine but when it was opened up at 11 a.m. on June 2, there was a mess including eggs on the front steps. LPD Officer Debbie McDonald was the investigating officer.
