Oct. 12, 2008 Police Blotter

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

About 9 a.m. Oct. 2 an officer was called to a school in the 1500 block of Sycamore Street for a report of larceny.

An administrator said a boy reported his bike had been stolen from his cousin’s house the day prior before school and he saw a female student with it at the school.

The officer checked and found the boy’s initials on the underside of the bike.

The 13-year-old girl who had the bike said she was running late for school the day before and came across it, so she took it and rode it to school.

She was issued a citation for larceny.


About 9 a.m. Oct. 2 an officer was contacted by an official at a school in the 1500 block of Sycamore Street for a larceny report.

The official said three girls had admitted to taking money from the choir room three days earlier.

The two 12-year-olds and a 13-year-old were issued citations for larceny.


About 11 a.m. Oct. 3 an officer took a theft report in the lobby at the police department.

A woman said her Yorkshire terrier escaped her yard five days before in the 3000 block of Benjamin Davis Street.

She said she talked to a store clerk, who saw a family put the dog in their vehicle at a store near Llano Estacado Boulevard and Prince Street but couldn’t get any more information as to the dog’s whereabouts.

The officer took the dog’s identifying information.


About 8 p.m. an officer was called to a business in the area of Brady Avenue and Sierra Street for a male walking in the area who was bleeding.

Witnesses said a male walked into the business with a badly bleeding wound on his hand asking for assistance.

They said they gave him some napkins and he left. They then discovered two vehicles on the lot had been broken into and had large amounts of blood on and around them.

One of the male witnesses said he went after the bleeding male and confronted him. He said the male pulled a knife on him and left.

The officer documented blood in and around the vehicles but was unable to locate the suspect.
