Dec. 7, 7:34 p.m. – An individual called the police from a home on Mammoth Road, although the dispatcher indicated that it was very loud inside the house and it was difficult to understand what the caller was saying.

At first it sounded like there had been an argument about which room in the house held unspecified drugs. The caller then said his girlfriend’s uncle wouldn’t leave and was causing problems.

The caller then apparently said that someone was out of control, someone was high and someone was going to get a 12-gauge shotgun, but it’s unclear who.

Six minutes later, two individuals at the home were detained, although additional information on this action was not included in the report

According to the man, the assault occurred after she was revived with Narcan.

Police were unable to find the ex-girlfriend.

Dec. 11, 12:32 a.m. – Police were dispatched to a restaurant on South Willow Street after reports of a vehicle “tearing around the parking lot.”

By the time officers arrived, the vehicle had left the area.
