Linton Police Department Activity Log

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

The Linton Police Department's activity log for Tuesday included one incident of breaking and entering, two follow-up investigations, two requests for information only, one assist to the utility department after hours, three accidents with personal injury, one accident with property damage, three suspicious vehicles/persons, one assist to another agency, one motor vehicle theft, one other theft, one ordinance violation and one traffic stop.

* Oct. 1 -- No injuries were reported following a two-vehicle crash at 4:55 p.m. at the intersection of NE 4th and Vincennes streets. LPD Officer Nick Yingling responded and reported one driver was southbound on NE 4th St. and stopped at a stop sign but there was a trailer parked and obstructing the view. He went to cross the road, another vehicle was coming and they collided. Both vehicles were damaged.

* Oct. 3 -- One person received injuries in an evening crash on Price Rd. approximately 5000 feet east of Atlas Rd. but they left the scene before officers arrived.

LPD Cpl. Paul Clark responded to the scene to assist the Greene County Sheriff's Department.

According to his report, it appeared that a gray 1983 Chevrolet Blazer SUV had been traveling east on Price Rd. and left the road on the right side, traveled along a culvert then encountered a driveway causing the vehicle's front end to break. The SUV then came to rest on the other side of the drive in another culvert. The vehicle was damaged extensively. It was registered to a Linton resident.

Clark said he spoke to a woman who said she saw a man standing outside the truck who then fled through an open field and was not identified at that time.

Blood evidence was recovered from the driver's side of the SUV, presumed to be from injuries suffered by the driver.

All evidence and information was forwarded to Deputy Bobby Pierce.

* Oct. 5 -- A resident on NW 4th Street reported the theft in the early morning hours of his yellow 2008 Suzuki LTZ400 four-wheeler with a blue seat and several distinguishing characteristics. The police report says all four stock manufacturer tires were nearly bald, there were nerf bars, yellow plastic with red and blue Suzuki stickers, and the sticker on the left side had a scratch all the way through the middle. It also had a "busted-out" taillight that shows white light at night, the rear grab bar was missing due to an accident but the brackets were still intact with screws. When the bar was broken off, it bent and creased the plastic above it. The frame was a purplish metallic color with a glossy finish. This machine was valued at $2000. LPD Tom Jerrels is the investigating officer.

* Oct. 5 -- A resident on NE C Street reported the theft of several items out of an unlocked green 1998 Ford Ranger extended cab truck that was parked in front of a residence. Sometime between 11 p.m. on Oct. 4 and 6 a.m. Oct. 5, someone went through the glove box and ransacked the entire vehicle. A Cobra radar detector, numerous music CDs and Pioneer and Planet Audio equipment worth over $800 was missing. LPD Det. Duane Collenbaugh is the investigating officer.

* Oct. 5 -- A resident on NE C Street reported an attempted theft involving her unlocked 2002 Ford Focus sometime before 2:30 a.m. Nothing was missing but someone had gone through the vehicle. LPD Officer Karl Jacobshagen is the investigating officer.
