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

About 8 p.m. June 8 drug agents served a search warrant at a residence in the 1400 block of Lea Street.

Officers knocked on the door but when they received no response, attempted to make entry into the residence, until a man opened the door.

Officers found a female in the house as well.

Marijuana and methamphetamine were found in the man’s pant pockets and officers found more than 11 grams of methamphetamine individually packaged in the woman’s purse and index card ledgers of drug transactions.

The couple was arrested.

Around 10 p.m. June 8 officers responded to a residence in the 800 block of West Fifth Street for a battery.

A distraught woman said she was arriving home and saw a man walking behind a woman as if he were following her. As the woman pulled into her driveway and started getting out, she started running as if she was trying to get away from the male and opened the door and got in the woman’s vehicle on the passenger side.

The 37-year-old said the man opened her drivers door and climbed over her to get to the female, saying he was “going to kill” her.

The woman said her husband arrived and pulled the male out of the car and then said the male and female took off running.

When officers asked the woman for her identification, she discovered her purse had been taken from her vehicle.

Officers asked her she thought it possible the male and female’s fight was a ruse to steal from her, she couldn’t be certain what happened or how her purse was stolen.

About noon June 9 an officer responded to the 100 block of Manana for a vehicle crash report.

A woman said she was backing out of her driveway and was watching nearby children and didn’t see a postal vehicle behind her at a mailbox and backed into it.

The damage to the postal vehicle was classified as slight and the woman was issued a citation for improper backing.

About 8 p.m. June 9 an officer responded to an undisclosed residence to take a missing person’s report.

A woman said her teen daughter left the home earlier in the evening and had not returned. She said she had checked several neighboring homes and couldn’t find her.

She said her daughter had been giving her a lot of trouble and thought it was like a game to see how many times she could sneak out of the house.

The officer took the girl’s information and issued an alert to other officers.

About an hour later the mother called back and said her daughter had returned.
