Police were called to Crosstown at 1:30 a.m. for an intoxicated man throwing rocks into the roadway.

An Ida Street woman said her son has been staying with her for about 10 days. During the night of May 14, he stole her keys and took her 2004 Ford Explorer. She tried to contact him to no avail. After four days, she alerted police to report the unauthorized use of a vehicle.

A woman said the day before, she was eastbound on West Main and was unable to come to a stop at Industrial Road and rear-ended the car in front of her. Since neither driver had insurance, they agreed to make arrangements to pay for damages. She said there was little damage to the other car, but the driver called wanting $1,700 she didn't have. When asked for her license, she said she did not have a driver's license. She would not provide the information for the other driver. She was told since a proper report was not taken at the time of the incident, she would have to handle the dispute in civil court.

A woman said she and a male friend left a North Gloster business and her ex-husband was sitting on his motorcycle outside. They did not speak to him, but the ex followed the couple. He later cut in front of them and moved from lane to lane to keep them from passing him. She said the divorce was final May 5 and part of the judgment was a mutual non-interference agreement.

A Saltillo woman said her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend has called or texted more than 20 times from different numbers since late March harassing her. She blocked the suspect, but the ex continues calling and has even been harassing the woman's sister and her ex-husband.

Anyone with information on any of these crimes is urged to call the Lee County Sheriff's Office at (662) 841-9041 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 773-TIPS.
