Each day, we comb through pages upon pages of crime reports from the Wichita Police Department. Below is a quick glance at some bits and pieces from those sheets.
These reports are designed to give you an idea of what residents and police are dealing with around town.
You can read all of the sheets by going here: WPD Media Reports (click on the "Media Reports" tab)
A 20/m reports someone forcing their way through the front door of his home in the 900 block of N. Belmont and taking property belonging to him and someone else. Police took two people into custody at the scene, one of them was carrying a stolen handgun. That person was arrested for burglary.
A 22/f, who is pregnant, says she was walking on S. Broadway between English and Waterman headed toward the McDonalds when someone drove up and started yelling at her. There’s nothing in the report about what he said, but the report is listed as a suspicious character.
A 21/f says a man she doesn’t know got into her car with a gun and forced her to drive to various places around town. There were no threats, she wasn’t robbed and there are no witnesses.
A/C & dish…
A 77/m says someone stole an AC condenser and a satellite dish from a vacant house he owns in the 2600 block of N. Estelle. He says the wires were cut to the condenser. He says two men he doesn’t know approached him about the satellite dish, which was on the porch at the time. He isn’t sure if they’re the ones who took it.
A 68/m says someone damaged his fence in the 1700 block of N. Market by throwing a TV at it.
Giveth and taketh away...
An 18/f says she sold some items online and confirmed the money for the transactions was in her account before she shipped the stuff. Once the items were shipped, she found out the money was no longer in her account. The bank told her to file a police report.
A 21/f reports three people coming to a store in the 4600 block of W. Kellogg, even though they were told last week not to come back. She believes one of them had a firearm. Police contacted two of them and took them into custody. Turns out they had stolen merchandise with aluminum foil over the anti-theft devices (apparently, that’s a tactic used by some shoplifters to get past anti-theft systems).
A 32/f reported poor living conditions at a home and children possibly being abused. Police made contact with the grandparents at the home. Officers report a “hoarding problem” at the home, but there was no indication of abuse.
You can run…
A 52/f says someone busted the back door of her apartment in the 900 block of N. Broadway. An officer caught up with the person, who then ran. That person was then arrested for destruction of property, trespassing and obstructing the legal process (for running).
A 10/m called 911 to report that he was home alone with his 3-year-old sister. He said there was no emergency.
A 17/f says two people caused a disturbance with someone in a store in the 2200 block of E. 21st. Someone reports one of them swerving their vehicle toward the woman and hitting her car. The woman says she was in fear for her life. There was also a physical altercation at some point during the ordeal.
Probably should have kept those…
A 32/f reports an unknown customer trying to pay for stuff with two counterfeit bills at a store in the 4600 block of W. Kellogg. She refused to take the bills, so he paid with another form of payment and left with the counterfeit bills.
A 57/f says someone pointed a black revolver at her in the 800 block of N. Market and threatening to kill her. She says she was in fear for her life. He made verbal threats against another person a swell. The man was arrested on several charges.
A 24/m reports putting a logo advertisement on his car with the agreement that he would be paid after three months. He received a check, but it was for much more than they owed him. As of right now, he isn’t out any money. (The report does not state whether he tried to deposit the check, or if the check was valid)
