Two officers responded to a residence in response to a report of an intoxicated female who was causing a disturbance. The officers were let in by a male who stated that his sister was in the back and was very drunk. The woman and a younger male were standing at the back of the residence near a sink; the woman was bleeding from the nose and had blood on her shirt and pants. When asked what had happened, she stated that she had an anxiety problem. When asked, she denied being hit. The young male standing with her said that his mother had slapped his father, and that he had pulled her away from him and that during the struggle, her nose had been hit. The officer noted that she smelled strongly of alcohol, that her eyes were red and watery, and that she was speaking loudly with slurred speech. The woman said she had slapped the man identified as her husband, and just wanted to go to bed. The woman was escorted from the residence and advised that she was under arrest for harassment and domestic violence. She was issued a summons and transported to the county jail, where she was left in the care and custody of the detention center staff.

An officer responded to a call in reference to a vehicle theft. He met with the owner, who noticed her car missing from her driveway about 6 a.m. She admitted that she and her husband had occasionally left the car unlocked with the keys in it. The womans grandson mentioned that the car was still in the driveway when he went to bed at about midnight. He thought he heard a vehicle start and leave about 2 a.m. but was not concerned about it; he heard no other sounds. The owner said that she had stored many of her bank statements in the trunk of the vehicle, as well as a box containing a diamond ring. The value of the ring was initially stated to be $1,500, but the owner later called and amended that value to be $14,000. After leaving the premises, the officer was contacted by a sheriffs deputy who thought that the stolen car might be related to a case he was working on. The deputy had taken a report of several mailboxes in the 21000 block of Road G, and that he had recovered a broken car part from the scene that came from the same type and year of vehicle that had been stolen. The deputy also advised the officer of a vehicle on fire at the 1100 block of Road 27.3 that occurred around 3 a.m., which was near the site where the vehicle had been stolen.
