Night driver: At 12:21 a.m., an officer patrolling Railroad Avenue checked the status of the vehicle in front of him and saw that the driver had a suspended license. He signalled the vehicle to stop.

Hit and run: At 9:13 p.m., a witness reported a vehicle had just collided with a parked car on Center Boulevard and left the scene.

He didn’t think he’d hit anything, but appeared intoxicated, and was arrested for driving under the influence.

Forgotten backpack: At 10 p.m., an officer was called to the station to take a theft report. A woman there said her son’s backpack was stolen from Community Park, where he’d been playing basketball.

Stolen items included school books, a calculator and a pair of Executive Beats headphones valued at $300.

Car prowl: At 6:50 p.m., an officer contacted a theft victim. The man told the officer that on March 6, between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m., someone had entered his unlocked vehicle and stolen a $5 camping knife. Nothing else was missing.
