LRPD reports arrests in three crimes

Posted By on Mon, Sep 1, 2014 at 2:04 PM

The police distributed reports today of some arrests in the field this Labor Day weekend:

* GUN DRAWN ON KIDS; CHASE ENSUES: An officer who saw a gun pointed from a BMW at young boys on the street near 16th and Chester about 5 p.m. Sunday attempted a traffic stop that led to a car chase, then a foot chase and then the arrest of three suspects who'd hidden out in dorm rooms at Philander Smith College. The three face a variety of charges from fleeing to possession of a weapon on school property.

The report.

* BURGLARY INTERRUPTED: Officers interrupted a burglary in progress about 6 a.m. this morning at American Pre-Own at 6706 S. University and arrested a men suspected of cutting a fence to steal a $9,000 Kubota ATV.  One man was captured near the business. Another man is listed as a suspect. Officers said they found vehicle doors open on the lot and the steering column broken in one vehicle.

Here's the rundown.

* CAR THEFTS: Police arrested a man suspected of stealing from cars parked in the 200 block of North Polk Street about 2 a.m. today. A witness called police after seeing the man try door handles on several vehicles. Cops found the suspect on bicycle nearby. He told police he took loose changed from two cars — 50 cents in one case. He insisted he didn't break windows, merely looked for unlocked cars to search for loose change. The suspect was issued a citation for misdemeanor theft.

The car theft report.

  • The fall of Boehner

    Nothing so became U.S. Rep. John Boehner's tenure as speaker of the House as his manner of leaving it. Subjectively speaking, he has never appeared to believe very much of the nonsense his position required him to utter. An old school politician who literally grew up working in the family bar, his conservatism is of the traditional Midwestern kind — more Bob Dole, say, than Ted Cruz.

    Given the wild gyrations of the Republican presidential nominating race, I write these words knowing that a future meal of them remains possible, but nonetheless: Mike Huckabee is toast.
  • First Nixon, then Boehner

    Like Richard Nixon's resignation speech 41 years earlier, John Boehner's sudden valedictory from Congress may be said to be the old politician's finest moment.
  • Razorbackula and a tour through the police blotter

    A certain morbid curiosity about crime is one of the few silver linings of living in a place where the per capita crime rate rivals even the shystiest hellhole corners of the country. So that’s our topic for the week, crime reporting.
