Jefferson County sheriff
Big haul: A Dillonvale man who works in the metering and measurement department of an energy company said someone broke into his locked work truck and removed a $50 bill, some change and a $3,000 metering device, Tuesday. Several hand tools valued at $300 also were removed from a toolbox, he said.
MIA: An Amsterdam man told deputies someone stole his Sears Craftsman rototiller and a Stihl weedeater, Tuesday. He said he last saw the items when he was planting his garden a week ago. He’d left the tiller under a tree in his yard and the weedeater in his workshop.
No benefit: Someone tried to claim unemployment benefits using a Toronto man’s information but the claim was denied, Tuesday.
Nice try: A man in the 1200 block of Arlington reported his neighbor threatened to shoot his dog because it was in his yard barking and also called his wife derogatory names to try to get him to fight, Tuesday. The other man left before police arrived.
Argument: An Oregon Avenue couple put a canopy up on another person’s property, sparking an argument when the property owner asked them to move it, Tuesday. When the two of them confronted the woman about her request, a family member told the younger man to just remove the offending canopy and “mind his business.” The man who was upset about having to move the canopy began arguing with his relative, who told police the younger man tried to charge after him, so he hit his arm with a wooden stick. Police told the man he needed to get the canopy off the neighbor’s property.
Family feud: A Henry Avenue resident told police she wanted a couple living with her out of her house, Tuesday. The homeowner told police she’d come into the house in time to see the male, a young relative, pinning the woman down in a corner. The younger female said she and her boyfriend were arguing about the room being dirty and said he only put his hand over her mouth. She told police the older woman “was lying and constantly…trying to get (her relative) in trouble” and said he’d never pinned her down or held her down, but she gathered her belongings and left voluntarily.
Watch list: Police had to remove a man causing a disturbance from Cashland, Tuesday. Employees said the man tried to sell them two watches, and when they told him they weren’t interested, he began yelling and pushed a plastic partition off its mounts. The employees don’t want him back in their store.
