Samplings of recent calls received by Clovis-area law enforcement officers, according to reports: After receiving an 11:47 a.m. call on Thursday from an Allsup’s clerk about a possibly drunk customer leaving the story, police stopped a car driven by a 46-year-old Amarillo man at the 300 block of West 14th Street, determining that he had a strong liquor smell and had urinated in his pants. The man refused to accompany officers to the adult detention center and had to be physically forced to the ground, in the process receiving minor injuries to his mouth while being handcuffed on the ground. Police transported the man to Plains Regional Medical Center and after treatment placed him under arrest for driving while intoxicated. About 12:46 p.m. Thursday, police responded to the 1700 block of St. Andrews for a report that a garage door had been smashed in by a car. A parked car inside the garage had also been damaged by the impact. Damage to the car was estimated at $3,000. Damage to the garage door was estimated at $1,000. Police received a tip about 2:30 p.m. Thursday that they might be able to find a stolen van parked near the corner of 6th and Wallace. When arriving at the specified location, a parked 1992 Dodge van did check out as stolen from a company in Hobbs. A Clovis bank called police Thursday afternoon to report a possible fraud case. According to bank staff, a Clovis woman opened a bank account using nearly $10,000 worth of credit card checks from a bank that is no longer in existence, and then withdrew most of that amount in cash. The bank cited a total loss of $9,603. Police responded Thursday to a report that two Clovis girls, ages 9 and 10, were being chased down a Clovis street by a man with a wrench. Police met with the mother of one of the girls and with the staff of a neighboring community mental health center. No charges were filed pending further investigation.
