Bite-Sized Blotter: Smelly trash, burger patties and more
The Lake Oswego police log is, shall we say, rather popular. We even made a book out of it a few years ago, and people still come into the office in search of a copy.
So with that in mind, we present the Bite-Sized Blotter — a Wednesday sneak peek at the week's calls before the whole log posts Thursday:
6/14 11:42 a.m. A woman was concerned about a trash can that was covered in plastic wrapping and gray duct tape near the 11800 block of Kerr Parkway. She said it had the smell of a dead animal coming from it.
6/14 12:51 p.m. A caller said a neighbor put up a figure sign of a kid in the street to get motorists to slow down near Albert Circle and Deerbrush Avenue, and he felt this was hazardous.
6/15 12:47 p.m. A man was "screaming and banging around" in an apartment at an undisclosed location. He was going through a breakup.
6/17 11:26 a.m. Four raw burger patties were placed on a walking path near Kerr Parkway and Jefferson Parkway. The person who found them was afraid they'd been poisoned.
6/19 2:10 p.m. A caller said it looked like a transient was rolling in the grass and putting her head in someone's sprinklers near 4th Street and C Avenue. Police found her sitting in the sidewalk and found no reason to stop her.
