Bite-Sized Blotter: Confusing the police for Uber and more
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:
9/25 2:00 p.m. A caller said someone put a bucket of feces in her yard, tipped it over and put caution tape around it. It was a landscaper and it wasn't malicious.
9/26 8:24 a.m. A caller said officers were looking for someone the day before, and he heard digging around the house that night.
9/28 1:05 p.m. A caller was suspicious of a 10-year-old girl who was selling sweet rolls for a trip to Wisconsin. The girl didn't say what school or sports organization the trip was related to.
9/28 1:08 p.m. A man said someone asked him to call the police because he needed a ride near the 15800 block of Boones Ferry Road.
9/29 6:59 p.m. A caller said a neighbor was using power tools in their driveway, and they worried he would misplace a boulder in the dark and it would come down on their house near the 16800 block of Canyon Drive.
