Crime Watch

May 28
An off site owner of a home under construction in the 4000 block of Warm Springs Road called to report that a camera at the property showed that someone was walking around in the house with a flashlight, and that no one should be there. A deputy went out but was unable to locate anyone.

June 2
A caller from the 13000 block of Arnold Dr. called to report that a man had just gotten out of his vehicle and put a methamphetamine pipe in his left sock. A deputy went out, contacted the man, and searched his sock but did not find anything.

June 5
A resident of the 13000 block of Arnold Dr. called at 11:30 p.m. to complain that they were trying to sleep, but were being kept up by very loud opera music nearby.

June 5
There was a fraud report from the 600 block of Kenilworth Ave. The caller said that someone had obtained her user identification for her phone account, and had transferred her service to another carrier, thus making her unable to use her phone.

June 6
A caller who takes care of an elderly woman in the 6000 block of Enterprise Road reported possible elder fraud. The elderly woman hired a man to do some work at the house, but the man left without fixing what he was supposed to. The caller said that upon investigation, three checks had been taken from three different checkbooks and made out to “cash.” It was discovered that the checks had been cashed fraudulently in the amounts of $1,000, $500, and $1,000. A photocopy of the checks showed that the signatures on the checks were not the woman’s. The caregiver suspected the workman, but there was no paperwork or other information that would allow deputies to track the man down.
