HIGHWAY 25/WYNN MARSH ROAD – A red Nissan Murano was clocked traveling 100 mph in a 55-mph zone. The driver got out of her vehicle and met me as I approached. I identified myself and told her why I stopped her. She said “she was only speeding because she was running late to her grandson’s dentist appointment.” She was offered an accuracy test of the radar equipment, which passed. The driver received a speeding citation.

HIGHWAY 67/ARTHUR NUBERN ROAD – A white Ford F350 truck was found broken down partially in the road and causing a hazard for vehicles turning onto Highway 67. The owner of the vehicle was contacted and a wrecker service called out to remove the vehicle.

JIM WATERS ROAD – Complainant said he sent a check in the mail for $7,368.35 to a company in Alabama he does business with on a regular basis. He said the business called him and told him they had not received payment. A local bank tracked down the check and found the Alabama business’ name was whited out and the name of an individual was put in its place. The complainant said he does not know the person’s name on the check and they do not work with the company in Alabama. The report was sent to the Criminal Investigation Division for further action.

LILLIE HAGAN ROAD – A blue Dodge Ram 1500 was found stuck in a ditch and was blocking the road. The vehicle was towed from the scene and the owner’s name was found by running the license plate. Also, the vehicle did not have insurance. The owner was contacted and she said she backed into the ditch the previous night and was unable to get it out. She was advised where her vehicle was towed and to have insurance on the vehicle before she goes to retrieve it.

TOBACCO LANE – Complainant said a woman known to him keeps coming on his property without his permission. In contacting the woman, she said she is pregnant with the man’s child and is coming on his property to talk to him about their situation.
