A man parked his boat at his stepbrother’s Denton home and the two found it gone within a few hours Monday morning, according to a police report.

A 911 caller told the Denton Police Department that his stepbrother parked his 17-foot long boat at his house. The report says the caller last saw the boat around 7 a.m. Monday and discovered it was gone when he returned home at about 11 a.m.

Police spoke with the owner, who confirmed he took the white and silver 1975 Hydra Sport Bass Boat to his relative’s house because he didn’t have space for it at his own home. He estimated the boat’s value at $3,000 and reported it had a trailer hitch lock on it.

A report was taken and an investigation is ongoing.

1500 block of North Western Boulevard — A woman who approached a driver to warn him he was about to crash into a semitrailer reported that the driver then struck her with his semitruck, according to a police report.

Officers responded to the crash around 2:07 p.m. Monday. The caller said she saw the driver of a semi was about to back into a trailer, so she approached him to stop him.

The report says she moved around to the front of the cab and the driver then moved forward, causing the front end to hit her left side. She reported feeling pain in her shoulder, but declined medical attention and said she was willing to pursue charges.

The driver told police he saw her walk away after notifying him he was about to strike the other vehicle, so he then pulled forward to correct himself and added it was hard to see what was in front of him, according to the report.
