Linton Police Department Activity Log

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

The Linton Police Department's activity log for Monday included one request for information, two assists to the utility department after hours, two incidents of vandalism, one custody dispute/exchange, one drug investigation, one civil complaint, two accidents with personal injury, one accident with property damage, two lost and found, three medical/illness, one assist to another agency, one extra patrol, one domestic dispute and six traffic stops.

* July 31 -- LPD Officer Debbie McDonald responded to the Palace Bar parking lot on the report of a vehicle with broken windows. The officer spoke to a man who said he was going to give three individuals a ride home from the bar, one of them then left the bar, and then when the man went outside, he found the windows on his truck were broken. There were no witnesses to the damage which occurred at approximately 7:45 p.m.

* Aug. 1 -- A Dugger woman reported that she had been held down and beaten by two suspects, a male and a female from Linton, at the Country Porch gas station at approximately 5 p.m. LPD Officer Thomas Jerrels responded but when he spoke to the suspects and their child, it was determined that the Dugger woman was the original aggressor in the confrontation. The report states, "Probable cause did not exist to establish who was to blame from any of the reporting parties." No charges are expected to be filed.

* Aug. 1 -- Police were called to a residence on NE E Street at approximately 3:15 a.m. and filed reports taken on two batteries. In one, a man said he was involved in a physical altercation with another man who hit him several times, unprovoked. Based on evidence and witness statements, the officer determined the man who said he was battered was the aggressor. Then a woman at the same location said the man (who said he was the victim in the other battery) pushed her down and grabbed her arms on the front porch. LPD Cpl. Chad Crynes was the investigating officer. Officer Thomas Jerrels assisted in the investigation.

* Aug. 2 -- A resident on Roosevelt Street reported an incident of criminal mischief occurred sometime between 1 a.m. and 9 a.m. The report says the resident went to bed around midnight and their vehicle was fine, but at 9 a.m. they discovered both passenger side tires on their Ford Explorer were flat. The front one had a slice but there were no obvious signs of damage on the rear tire. LPD Officer Debbie McDonald was the investigating officer.

* Aug. 3 -- Two male juveniles, both 17-years-old, got in a bit of trouble on curfew violations when they were stopped by LPD Cpl. Chad Crynes and Officer Thomas Jerrels at 2:50 a.m. in the area of State Road 54E and the Linton's city park. The police report states they were in a vehicle that was stopped for a traffic violation. In both cases the report says, "He was taken into custody and transported to the Linton Police Department. Suspect's mother was contacted and she picked him up at the LPD. Suspect advised that they were going to WalMart to exchange loose change for cash." The pair did not appear to be brothers as the report lists the names of two different parents who picked them up. Since they are juveniles, no further information was released.
