Mobile masturbator: The reporting party was outside in the 600 block of 140th Ave. NE and observed a male parked in the Northwest corner of the parking lot. The man exited his car with his pants down around his ankles. He was holding a laptop and masturbating. The witness yelled and the man fled.

Returned to the scene of the crime: An employee working at a store in the 11100 block of NE 8th St. contacted police when she realized that three women in the store were suspects in a robbery of $6,000 worth of jewelry the day prior. They had been caught on surveillance video.

Peeved over parking: A resident of an apartment complex at 530 Lakemont Blvd. was upset when he found a car parked in his parking spot. He used his truck and a chain to drag the vehicle out of the space. The suspect damaged the car in the process. He also lost control of his vehicle and collided with the building, causing significant damage.

Suspect lurks at school: A passerby observed a suspect lurking around the portable classrooms of Lake Hills Elementary with a flashlight around 11 p.m. The man called police and reported a possible burglary-in-progress. Officers found drug paraphernalia and arrested the man.
