1:07 p.m. — 500 block of North Ave., a woman said she believed another resident in her apartment stole her debit card. The woman said due to her disability, she allowed the man to purchase groceries for her in the past, using her debit card, but she never let him use it for personal use.

1:25 p.m. — Richard Wilson, charged with making false alarms. Police said a man called 911 three times, saying he would continue to call until an officer would take care of a four-wheeler complaint that he had called in.
