Tuesday morning, a resident in the Old Town Neighborhood discovered someone damaged the building’s mailboxes by prying them from the wall. The incident was reported to the U.S. Postal Service.
After discovering someone used his identity to apply for a personal loan a resident contacted officers Tuesday evening. The resident is unsure when or how his personal information was compromised. CPD would like to remind you to regularly check your financial accounts & credit reports for accuracy & to report any fraudulent activity as soon as possible.
Later Tuesday evening, a driver was arrested for DWI in the area of Clayton Rd. & Seminary Place. The driver’s intoxicated condition was discovered while officers were investigating a separate incident in the area.
Residents gave a contractor a substantial partial payment for construction work over the summer & after several postponements, the contractor never began the work.

CPD would like you to adopt the habits of a #9pmRoutine. Remove all items of value, keys & remotes from your vehicles. Lock your vehicles all day, every day & never leave your vehicle unattended with the engine running. Secure your homes & use your security systems even while you are home. If you witness any suspicious activity report it as soon as possible. #SeeSomethingSaySomething!
