The Roswell Police Department arrested two male subjects — one adult and one juvenile — Wednesday following an incident that occurred in the Farmer’s Market parking lot on East Second Street on Monday. According to police reports, an officer was flagged down by someone at the Allsup’s convenience store at Second and Garden, Monday, Feb. 11, 2013. A 30-year-old man was shopping with a 38-year-old woman when they were approached by a 43-year-old former boyfriend and a 15-year-old juvenile. An argument ensued. The 15-year-old pulled a knife on the 30-year-old and chased him across the parking lot. The 43-year-old got into his vehicle and attempted to cut off the man’s escape. The man then pulled a knife on the juvenile. The 43-year-old and the juvenile then fled the area before the police arrived. On Wednesday, the RPD arrested the two subjects — the 43-year-old on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and assault, the 15-year-old on charges of aggravated assault.
Police were called to the 3300 block of Dow Drive, Wednesday, a vacant home owned by the Security of Veteran Affairs of St. Lakewood, Colo. The investigation revealed that subjects had stolen a woodburning stove, a refrigerator, a dishwasher and the kitchen sink. A leaf blower, an air conditioning unit and heater were removed from the shed. The items were valued at $3,700.
Fraud / embezzlement
Police responded to Yates Energy, 400 N. Pennsylvania Ave., Wednesday. A company representative reported that they had received notification from the bank that two checks with the same check number had been run through the system. One check read $5.01; the second was written for $4,500.
Police were dispatched to Discount Furniture, 507 E. Second St., Wednesday, where someone had painted graffiti on one of the outside walls. Repairs were estimated at $150.
Police received a walk-in report, Wednesday, after a man attempted to file his taxes and discovered that someone else had already filed taxes under his name. He contacted the IRS. The agent at the IRS told him the same thing; he could not file since someone else had already filed taxes in his name.
