A County Road 2432 Guntown man said five mixed breed puppies showed up at his house about two weeks ago and he has been feeding them. He wanted the county to pick them up as strays.

A Lumpkin Avenue woman said the occupant of a neighboring apartment was playing loud music from his car.

Officers had to take him to the ground in order to subdue and handcuff him. The suspect was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

A Barley Court woman said the man in the apartment above her has been harassing her. She has had issues with him since March.

She said his name is not on the lease, but he continues to live there.

A Barley Court woman said her upstairs neighbor makes unnecessary noise late at night, keeping her from sleeping. She said the residence rules say folks should keep it down after 10 p.m. The neighbors' kids are up late at night making noise and talking loud.
