* June 8 -- Police are continuing to investigate an incident of neglect of a vertebrate animal, specifically a kitten. The case involves a 19-year-old female suspect from Linton who had taken a kitten to WalMart and tried to give it away. She was apparently unsuccessful -- someone reported that she put the kitten into a commercial mailbox that belonged to the U.S. Postal Service. LPD Officer Thomas Jerrels was dispatched to investigate, along with Cpl. Chad Crynes, and spoke to loss prevention personnel from the store. They were able to retrieve video of the incident. The officers contacted the U.S. Postal Service for assistance in opening the box and rescuing the kitten.
* June 9 -- A juvenile reported his bicycle was stolen from his friend's yard near the school earlier this week. He had parked it there, then after it disappeared, he waited a couple of days to report the theft because he thought maybe it might turn up. It was a brown and white Mongoose Rebel. LPD Det. Duane Collenbaugh is the investigating officer.
* June 9 -- LPD Cpl. Chad Crynes and Officer Thomas Jerrels responded to a group home located at 240 NE 1st St. to serve a warrant from the Daviess County Sheriff's Department on Steven W. Aishe, 25, Linton. The police report states that upon their arrival they spoke to the on-duty supervisor who said that Aishe was inside and she escorted the officers inside the residence.
