Bite-Sized Blotter: Fake knives, mysterious patio umbrellas
The Lake Oswego police log is, shall we say, rather popular. We even made a book out of it a few years ago, and people still come into the office in search of a copy.
So with that in mind, we present the Bite-Sized Blotter — a Wednesday sneak peek at the week's calls before the whole log posts Thursday:
5/17 8:02 a.m. A "very low" branch was seen hanging from a tree near Evergreen Road and 8th Street.
5/17 3:33 p.m. A resident was concerned about a deer that looked sick and was lying down. When an officer arrived, two deer — both looking healthy — ran away.
5/19 6:00 a.m. A caller was concerned about a large butcher knife sitting on top of a stone wall near the 4100 block of South Shore Boulevard. It was fake.
5/19 8:45 a.m. A caller found a large patio umbrella in her backyard and didn't know how it got there.
5/21 11:43 a.m. A resident wished to report an ongoing problem with kids using workout machines that were marked for ages 14-and-older near the 15700 block of Waluga Drive. She said when she pointed out the rules to a mother, she was told "Don't you have anything better to do?"
