Here are the highlights from the St. Louis Police Department’s complaint log from Tuesday, Nov. 6, through Saturday, Nov. 10.
Police took a fraud report Tuesday, Nov. 6, from a resident on Giddings Street. The resident hired a person who advertised “handyman services” on paper flyers, said Police Chief Richard J. Ramereiz Jr. The victim did not obtain a contract for the work to be performed. Work that was done was not done correctly or as verbally agreed to. Unfortunately, the victim did make full payment without inspecting the work first.
Chief Ramereiz urges anyone looking to hire a contractor to follow these links for tips and information from the Federal Trade Commission and the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.
The St. Louis Police Department has received multiple complaints about a reckless driver in the area of Euclid, Lincoln, Hazel and Butternut streets. Each complaint is of a charcoal grey Chevy four-wheel drive pickup speeding, jumping the railroad tracks on Euclid and Lincoln Streets and driving in a reckless manner, Chief Ramereiz said. The incidents have been reported at various times of the day. Complaints have been made on Nov. 2, 6 and 8. Each day was a different time. Police have not been able to identify the vehicle or the driver yet. Anyone with information on this vehicle can contact St. Louis Police at (989) 681-5285
A 32-year-old St. Louis resident was arrested on a warrant from another agency Nov. 8. The arrested person was lodged at the Gratiot County Jail. Before the start of the arresting officer’s shift, he checked the active warrant list. While on patrol he spotted the subject at a local business. The officer made contact and arrested the subject.
An officer responded to assist an ambulance crew at Schepp Senior Care and Rehab Center on Nov. 10. CPR was performed for 45 minutes on an 87-year-old person before authority was given to stop. The subject was pronounced dead at the scene.
