Other reports

800 block of North Bell Avenue — A man reported his black Chevrolet Cruze stolen early Friday from an apartment complex parking lot, according to a police report.

The caller said he parked his car around 12:12 a.m. and was sure he locked it, then noticed it was missing around 1 a.m. The report says there was no broken glass to indicate it was broken into, but there were tire marks as if it had been towed.

Officers weren’t able to verify that the car was legally towed so it was registered as stolen.

Woodrow Lane and Spencer Road — A 34-year-old man was arrested for driving while intoxicated after police responded to a vehicle crash Friday evening, according to a police report.

Officers noticed both vehicles, a BMW and a Nissan, had moderate damage. The report says both vehicles were traveling on Woodrow, one going south and the other north. The driver of the Nissan said she had a green light at the Woodrow and Spencer intersection, so she continued on and the other driver turned and crashed into her.

The other driver said he had a green light to turn onto Spencer Road. According to the report, he “seemed out of it” and said he was on medication that was “really affecting him.”

He was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated after officers conducted standard field sobriety tests.
