After investigating an incident from April 4th we were able to gather evidence to charge the two male subjects who entered a residence they did not belong in and damaged some property while they were inside. Both subjects were charged with trespassing and criminal mischief.
Road Hazard – Police responded to the area of J St. and Central for a report of a road hazard. Officers arrived and observed a large sink hole on J St. in the west bound lane measuring approximately eight feet by eight feet. Officers secured the scene and put cones out until the County Road Department could respond to fix the issue and make the road safe for travel.
Verbal Dispute – Police were dispatched to the area of D St. and Bayview Ave. for a verbal dispute between a male and female in a motor vehicle. Police arrived on scene and located the vehicle with the subjects matching the description that was provided. Officers spoke to the male and female involved and were able to mediate the situation. It was determined that it was just a verbal altercation, and no further police response was needed.
Fire Alarm – Police and the Seaside Park Volunteer Fire Company responded to the area of K Ct. for a report of a fire alarm activation. Officers arrived and did not observe any smoke or active fire. The fire department arrived and checked the residence with their thermal camera to ensure it was safe for the residents to reenter. It was deemed safe, and that the alarm was set off in error.
