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

Police were dispatched Sunday to the 1000 block of West Brady Avenue in reference to a missing trailer.

The complainant said the trailer had been missing since about Nov. 23, but he believed one of his employees may have borrowed it for some work.

He contacted his employees, and none claimed to have it.
The man said he had received a call Dec. 3 from an unidentified man who said he found the trailer. The man called back the next day and said the trailer was gone. The caller gave him a name and number of a subject he believed to be involved.

Total value of the trailer is estimated at $5,300.

The officer wasn’t able to make contact with the subject but the case remains active.

Police were dispatched Wednesday to an apartment complex at the corner of Prince and Manana streets to assist an employee of a local jail bond company.

The employee said the subject was hiding in one of the apartments and had two warrants against him. He also said he located a methamphetamine pipe and a bag with a green leafy substance in it.

The officer tested the substances and determined the green substance to be marijuana and the pipe to contain methamphetamine.

After contacting dispatch, the officer found that the subject had four warrants against him, all for contempt of court.
The officer arrested the subject and took him to jail.

Police were dispatched Thursday to the 700 block of East First Street in reference to a theft.

The cashier at the store said a man came in asking for an order of popcorn chicken. When the cashier went back into storage to get the product, the man walked out with a 30-pack of beer.

The man was last seen heading north on Prince Street.
Total value of the beer came to $21. Case is active.

Police were dispatched Sunday to a store in the 2700 block of North Prince Street in reference to a shoplifting complaint.

The shift manager on location said some of the store’s computer games had been stolen.

She said some juveniles had gone to the gaming section of the store and stayed there for an extended period of time.

Games disappeared when these subjects were in the store before, she said.

She was able to identify them by name because they had each placed their names on a list to reserve a specific game that came out Wednesday.

The security camera was not positioned to show the gaming section of the store clearly, so no charges have been pressed.

Case is active.
