GRANDVIEW – Police in Grandview had a fairly routine weekend, followed by a very busy Monday.
Yesterday, there were 28 calls for service from citizens in Grandview, including reports of a burglary and four thefts, a reported sex crime and a fraud report.
The burglary was reported in the 800 block of West Second Street yesterday morning at approximately 6:40 a.m.
Grandview Assistant Police Chief Mike Hopp said a business had been entered via an unlocked door and computer equipment was stolen. Police are still investigating the incident.
Also yesterday, clothing was reported stolen in the 400 block of Elm Street, new lighting was reported stolen from the construction site at Grandview High School, undisclosed items were reported stolen from a home in the 100 block of Grandridge Road and a teen reportedly took his family’s vehicle from the 400 block of Elm Street without permission.
Additionally, a Grandview citizen called police to report a sexual assault that took place in Sunnyside. The information was forwarded to the Sunnyside Police Department for further investigation.
Police, said Hopp, are not commenting on a fraud case, which was yesterday reported by a citizen on Stover Road.
Officers also yesterday assisted a man who was reportedly suicidal. Police were told the man consumed numerous pills and he was possibly armed with a shotgun. After an assessment of the situation, police were able to talk to him and get him to a hospital for help.
Grandview police also investigated a theft reported at Safeway last Friday. A customer left her sunglasses behind and they were stolen before she returned for them.
Another fraud report came in that day after a Grandview resident discovered two accounts in her name were opened in Georgia.
A burglary, too, was reported this past Saturday. A shop in the 300 block of East Fourth Street was broken into. Wheels and oxygen tanks were reported stolen.
Grandview police have also since last Friday handled an animal problem, two civil problems, a harassment complaint, two noise complaints, eight suspicious activity calls, two traffic problems, a traffic mishap, a trespassing complaint and a reported unsecure premises.
