Freeloading: A Union Avenue resident called police because his roommates threw his belongings out of their rental property because he didn’t pay his share of the rent for April, Monday. Because he’d established residency, police advised his roommates the landlord would have to evict him.

Taken: A woman with green hair walked out of Rural King with a pair of Ariat boots, valued at $85, and a bag of clothing, Monday. Employees said the woman put the boots on and then was seen entering a changing room with “a large amount of clothing” and a bag. They said when she left, she had some of the clothes in hand but her bag “appeared to be full” and she paid for one shirt before leaving. While police were investigating the theft, employees advised them a male wearing a light-colored hoody had walked out of the store with a shopping cart full of Carhart clothing, leaving the lot in an orange car, possibly a Chevrolet Cavalier.

Shot: A Ridge Avenue resident told police someone shot his dog with a pellet gun, Monday. Police said the dog was bleeding and had several wounds.

Trashy: Callers complained that individuals in three vehicles hanging out in the 1400 block of Pennsylvania Avenue were littering, Monday. All three vehicles were gone when police arrived, but officers noted there was trash on the road and sidewalks.

Overdoing it: A possible overdose was reported in the 1000 block of Claire Avenue, Monday. Police said the male was on the ground, unresponsive, and Narcan was used to revive him. While checking the area around him, police located an empty hypodermic needle on the toilet seat.

Squatter: A woman in the 1500 block of Sunset Boulevard needed police help in getting a man out of her car, Monday. The man said his money was in her bank account and he wanted her to return it. Police told him he’d have to go to court to get his money back and said climbing into her car without permission was not a solution.

Code issues: Notices of violation were sent to the owners of properties at 308 Belleview, high grass; 1529 Ridge Ave., mattresses, furniture and other items piled in back yard; 1510 Euclid Ave., high grass; 1407 Ridge Ave., high grass; 149 Lovers Lane, high grass; and 125 Lovers Lane, high grass.
