Police Blotter

People who live on East Kelly Avenue and park on the street woke up Monday morning to various vegetables on their windshields. Yes, you read that right. East Jackson residents report having carrots, broccoli and cucumbers under their car’s windshield wipers and they have no idea where they came from. Veggie fairy sharing the goods? Unknown underlying meaning? Share what you know, vegetable sleuths.

On Sunday afternoon an employee at Dairy Queen called police because a customer was mad and “started throwing punches and brandished bear spray” while in the restaurant’s drive-thru. No one was injured, though police are looking for a man in a muscle shirt who had dreadlocks driving a red truck with California plates.

A 67-year-old Missouri man was arrested Saturday after refusing to leave his motel. Managers asked him to leave after he demanded they send someone to his room to make his bed the way he likes it made, according to police reports. The staff said they were trying to limit contact with occupied rooms because of the pandemic and the man reportedly became angry. They refunded the man’s room and asked him to leave. When he wouldn’t leave police responded and arrested him for criminal trespass.
