A Crestview Road woman said she was looking online for a place to rent and began texting an unknown subject. She was emailed an application, filled it out and returned it. She was about to send a money order deposit when she got suspicious and wanted to talk to them on the phone. When they refused, she realized it was a scam and told them she would report them to authorities. About a week later, she started getting threatening texts from the subject.

A woman said she was traveling west on Main Street near Crosstown when another car turned in front of her into the Kroger parking lot. She swerved to avoid hitting the car, instead running over a shrub and a stop sign in the Kroger parking lot. There was damage to the front end of her Hyundai Sonata.

A Clayton Avenue woman said overnight, someone stole a string trimmer and an edger from the back of a pickup.

A North Gloster Walmart employee said a white female was seen concealing numerous items in her purse: including an xBox controller, a tank top and women's sleep pants.

An Enoch Avenue woman returned home from work and discovered a window screen had been ripped, removed from the window and propped up against the backyard fence. She had no idea who could be responsible.

An Ida Street man said a black female knocked on his door around 7 p.m. and asked for a glass of water, so he let her in. While he was getting her the water, she ran out of the apartment, taking with her the $40 he had laying on the counter. The suspect, whom he had never seen before, drove away in a tan Chevy sedan.

A Beasley Drive woman said when she got home at 6:30 p.m., her lawnmower was underneath her carport. About 2 hours later, the lawnmower was missing.
