At 8:27 am, police were dispatched to a parked vehicle for a well-being check on a male. Police attended and located an intoxicated male within the vehicle. A 36-year-old male was arrested under the Intoxicated Persons Detention Act and lodged in cells.

Police received a report of a lost wallet. The caller stated that he left it at a car wash, and when he returned to get the wallet, it was gone. Police were able to review the video surveillance and located the wallet which was returned to the owner.

Police received a report of a romance scam. A male was attempting to send $750 to a female that he met on a Facebook dating site. The female promised that she would send him one million dollars if he could wire her $750. When the male attempted to wire the funds, he was informed that this sounded like a scam and that he should inform the police. The male met with police who were able to confirm that this was in fact a scam.

Police would like to remind the public that romance scams are popular on social media outlets. Never send money or gifts to people you have not met in person. If you suspect a romance scam, stop communicating with the person immediately and talk to the police or someone you trust.
