Here are the highlights from the St. Louis Police Department’s complaint log from Jan. 31 through Feb. 4. Thanks to Police Chief Richard J. Ramereiz Jr. for the following information.
A vehicle driven by a 41-year-old Ashley man was unable to stop (due to icy road conditions) on Michigan Avenue on Monday, Jan. 31. The vehicle slid into the path of a vehicle driven by a 24-year-old St. Louis man. The St. Louis man swerved to avoid the first vehicle and struck a third vehicle (driven by 55-year-old Edmore man) that was stopped at the stop sign on Woodside Drive.
A debit card was found at the St. Louis 7-Eleven. The responding officer was able to locate the owner and returned the property.
Suspended License, Controlled Substance
A 50-year-old man was arrested after a police officer stopped him at 10:42 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1, at Michigan and Hazel for having a headlight out. A routine check showed that his license had been suspended. During the traffic stop, the officer found drug paraphernalia containing a suspected illegal substance. The substance will be sent to the crime lab for analysis and identification. If it is found to be an illegal substance, additional charges will be sought.
Criminal Sexual Conduct
A Criminal sexual conduct complaint was reported to the St. Louis Police Department. Chief Ramereiz is playing this one close to his vest, releasing only the above information.
A 64-year-old man stopped in the road on M-46 near Mill Street Saturday, Feb. 2, and reversed into a vehicle driven by a 70-year-old St. Louis man.
A 51-year-old St. Louis resident parked his or her vehicle along the shoulder of Franklin Street near Mount St. Joseph Church on Sunday, Feb. 3. When he or she returned to the vehicle, the rear window had been shattered.
A 25-year-old Alpena woman reported the theft of a purse from her unlocked car at Cambridge Woods Apartments (behind Seeley Auto Sales) on Monday, Feb. 4. “As a reminder, do not leave unattended vehicles unlocked, even if it is only for a short time,” said Chief Ramereiz. “It only takes a few seconds to enter an unlocked vehicle. Do not leave valuables in your vehicle in plain view. Valuables should always be removed from your vehicle or locked out of sight. The majority of all thefts from motor vehicles occur from UNLOCKED vehicles.”
