Police blotter — Aug. 28, 2014

Drunks, runaways and petty scofflaws kept Brandon police officers hopping on Wednesday and overnight.

They say the day's catch started at around 1 p.m., when a disturbance was reported at a motel in the 2700-block of Victoria Avenue. A 51-year-old man who was involved was also drunk, police say; he was hauled to the drunk tank to prevent any further breach of the peace.

That man was later joined in jail by drunk 26-year-old man. Police picked him up in the 800-block of Pacific Avenue after a fight — apparently over a barking dog.

Officers made another arrest just a block over, in the 900-block of Pacific Avenue, around 2 a.m. They say a grossly intoxicated 31-year-old man was sitting on the curb drinking a beer when they picked him up. He spent the rest of the night in jail, and was to be released in the morning after receiving a ticket for public drinking.

At around the same time, a drunk 15-year-old girl was spotted in the 400-block of Ninth Street. She'd just been reported missing from her foster home; police took her to jail instead — she was to be released to her guardian in the morning with a ticket for underage drinking.

Police were also called to the hospital, where a 46-year-old woman was drunk and uncooperative.
She appeared to be in some sort of distress, police say, and was taken into custody for her own safety. She was to have her condition assessed once she sobered up.

Several teenagers wound up in cuffs after failing to obey court orders.

Police say they were on Confederation Bay on an unrelated matter around 9:30 p.m. when they spotted a 15-year-old boy who was breaching his probation by contacting a resident. He was held overnight to be released to a guardian in the morning. He'll have a date in court on Sept. 16.

Shortly after midnight, police checked up on a 17-year-old boy who was supposed to be on a curfew, but he wasn't at home. They found him about three hours later at a different home and arrested him then.

At the same home, they found a 19-year-old man whom they were also looking for. This guy had reportedly smashed a kitchen window around midnight at a different home, but the resident of that home recognized him.

Both teens at that home were arrested and spent the rest of the night in jail. They were to appear in court today.

Police say they're also looking for a pair of runaways from a group home. An employee of the home reported the two girls missing around 5 a.m.; they'd left earlier in the day and hadn't come back.
