Officers were dispatched to the 5700 block of 16th Avenue S. after a resident backed his truck out of his driveway, across the alley, and struck his neighbor’s truck, forcing it into her garage door, damaging a boat and trailer inside. The driver said his small dog got under his brake pedal. He was issued citations for improper backing, expired registration and no proof of insurance.

A resident in the 6200 block of 11th Avenue S. reported that his 4-year-old daughter was pinched by her mother, causing bruises because she would not sit still. An officer investigated the case and determined the allegations were unfounded.

Officers were dispatched to the 3000 block of Beach Boulevard after a caller reported that several dogs charged out of a residence when she stopped to clean up after her dog, and a pit bull-type dog attacked her leashed dog. The woman’s dog was not injured and the owner of the other dog was cited for dog at large.

Christopher Oliver was arrested for burglary after a resident in the 5100 block of 9th Avenue S. reported that several items had been stolen from her home. Video footage showed Oliver taking at least one of the items.

Officers responded to a reported domestic dispute in the Save a Lot parking lot on March 19. The female involved repeatedly gave officers a false name. She was eventually identified as Jennifer Jansen and arrested for providing a false name to law enforcement. Drug paraphernalia was discovered in her possession during her arrest.

Officers were dispatched to a car crash at the intersection of 27th Avenue S. and 44th Street on March 20 after a black BMW struck a parked truck and the driver fled the area on foot. Officers contacted the owner of the BMW who advised his son was the primary operator of the vehicle. The owner’s son provided an address for Angelo Adkins who borrowed the car. Officers found Angelo Adkins at his residence and arrested him on a felony warrant. The witness positively identified Adkins as the driver of the BMW. He was taken to jail on multiple charges.
