I discovered some awesome police reports in the Lebanon newspaper, so I used to always check it out and save the good ones. Here are some of my favorites:
7:01 p.m. — Caller just arrived home, in the 2500 block of S. Ind. 39, and noticed someone has been in her house; there is no sign of anyone being there other than the back door was locked, and caller said she leaves the door unlocked. Caller is advised to start locking the doors, BCSO.
5:21 p.m. — Caller, in the 700 block of N. Meridian St., thinks someone has been living in his basement; he found food, cigarette butts and sheets on the bed, LPD.
11:21 p.m. — There is a ‘possum in caller’s kitchen cabinet, in the 700 block of Campbell St.; she states she is in a wheelchair and her husband is sick, and they need assistance, LPD.
10:04 a.m. — A man was knocking on caller’s door, in the 5600 block of S. CR 25 W, and she was scared. Caller is advised that it could be a UPS driver, and the dispatcher asks her to check the front door. She did have a package there, BCSO.

Couple of questions: 1) Did the police give them enough time to put the pot roast back in the fridge before hauling them off to jail and the hospital respectively? 2) Who claimed ownership of the taters?
Also, how many times do you see "pot roast" and "fracas" in an article title?

Police rescued a man who tried to fall from a second story balcony at an apartment on W. Charles Street in downtown Muncie Saturday evening. The man pretended to draw a weapon from the balcony and repeatedly threw objects from his apartment at police. Officers responded by trying to talk the man into leaving the building peacefully. The man climbed over the banister in an attempt to fall to the ground but his foot became caught in the railing. Police prevented the man from falling while firefighters cut his foot free. The man was taken to the hospital for evaluation after the incident. Charles Street between Liberty and Council Streets was closed for more than an hour while police secured the scene and glass and other debris was cleared from the road.
Failing in an attempt to fall to the ground, even while having the strong ally, gravity.
