  • A caller said she “heard someone snooping around outside her house,” and “she thought she heard someone trying to get in a window on the side of the house.” Officers responded and did not find “anyone suspicious in the area.” The officers found “no indication that anyone tampered with the window.”

  • A woman entered the offices of the Perry Police Department at 908 Willis Ave. and “requested to speak to an officer about issues she is having with her 13-year-old son.” The woman said the boy “does not obey” and “comes and leaves as he pleases. He waits for his parents to fall asleep and leaves the door open.” The woman said the boy “has been spending most of his time at her sister-in-law’s,” who “is not a good influence on him” and who “babys him and has told him to call DHS to say that he does not get fed” at home. The woman said the boy “has done this, and now DHS has been trying to get a hold of her.” An officer responded.

  • A caller from a local bank said a customer “was just in and, after checking her bank balance, reported someone must have made a $400 withdrawal from their ATM yesterday.” The caller said “they checked the cameras and did see someone making the transaction, but they were wearing a mask.” The caller said the “customer has recently reported fraud to her account which later were discovered to have been her who made the transactions.” An officer responded.
