Sunnyside police had a relatively quiet weekend with investigations of suspicious circumstances and animal complaints topping their investigations.
The majority of the animal complaints involved barking dogs. However, one of the complaints involved an individual reportedly beating his dog. Upon investigation, police arrested the man on an unrelated outstanding warrant. The incident occurred in the 1100 block of West Grandview Avenue.
Police also investigated a report of an unknown vehicle parked for an extended amount of time in the 600 block of Fairview Avenue Sunday evening. The vehicle’s occupants were waiting for a friend. Police also discovered the driver had “borrowed” the vehicle from his mother without her permission.
A report of subjects on bicycles in the 800 block of Rossier Street was also reported to the police late Sunday evening. Upon investigation, officers were unable to locate the subjects.
Police were called to the 500 block of Ridgway Loop last Saturday evening when neighbors reported a subject running through the neighborhood. The suspicious individual had been seen throwing something into the back of a vehicle parked on the street. Police arrived to discover the subject was visiting his grandmother.
Police also investigated a disturbance in the 300 block of North Sixth Street. The reporting party claimed someone had been banging on her door. Officers were unable to locate anything suspicious.
In other activity, police investigated two reports of shoplifting in the 2600 block of East Lincoln Avenue, checked on two reports of business alarms, one unfounded report of an assault, a citizen’s dispute, two reports of verbal arguments between couples, made three traffic stops and made one arrest involving a driving while intoxicated incident.
Sunnyside officers also provided one agency assist, one citizen assist, handled two informational calls, made four public service calls and made one welfare check during the past weekend.
