Police Blotter 7/27

Samplings of recent calls received by Clovis-area law enforcement officers, according to reports:

After receiving reports that a woman was screaming as two men tried to put her into a pickup truck, police responded about midnight Thursday to the 1300 block of North Ross and found an intoxicated 16-year-old Clovis girl trying to walk away from the scene.
Police determined the men had been trying to get her into the truck so she would not walk home while intoxicated. Officers drove her home, released her to the custody of her parents, and cited her as a minor allowing herself to be served alcohol.

Police received two calls Thursday morning reporting slashed tires and discovered a third case while traveling to the second.
A check of the damage showed 17 golf carts at the 1300 block of Colonial Parkway had their tires slashed. Two pickup trucks at the 1700 and 1500 blocks of St. Andrews also had their tires slashed. When checking the truck at the 1700 block, police and the owner found a check on the windshield from a Lubbock woman with a note written on the front saying she had insurance and the owner should contact her insurance company.

A 14-year-old Clovis boy at home with his younger sister called police about 11 a.m. Thursday to report a possible burglary in progress at his home.
When police arrived, they determined that a 15-year-old Clovis boy had been tampering with a screen on the back of the first boy’s house. The boy claimed to have fallen into the screen during a water fight and said he was trying to repair the damage, but police believed his story was inconsistent and kept the case open for further investigation.
