The most thrilling police beat of the century

At 10:30 p.m. Friday, an OPD officer initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle for an equipment violation.

The driver was found to have an active warrant through the Butler County Sherriff's Office.

The warrant was confirmed and the male was taken into custody. He was transported to the Butler County Jail and turned over to their custody.

Out of the frying pan, into the garbage fire

Thursday evening, an OPD officer was dispatched to Hunter Woods Drive in response to a fire that was beginning to spread.

OPD spoke with the man housesitting at the Hunter Woods Drive home were the fire took place.

According to the housesitter, his son walked outside and saw the trash was on fire and the flames were spreading and he immediately told his dad. The mother called the fire department.

A Rumpke recycling bin and black bin were the only items damaged. Firemen were able to extinguish the fire. Its origin is unknown.

Sneaky squatters are spotted sprinkling pee

At 4:30 p.m. Thursday, an OPD officer was assisting two other officers when he observed two squatting females in an alley behind the Beta Theta Pi house.

When one suspect saw the officer, she immediately whipped around.

The second female was pulling up her pants and desperately grabbed a nearly-full can of Natural Light beer.

The officer approached the beer-toting female and determined she was only 20 years old.

He observed a suspicious puddle beside the female, which he surmised was, indeed, urine.

The female quickly became apologetic and explained that the bathroom line at a party she was attending was too long. She said the beer was not hers and she was holding it for someone else.

As she spoke, the officer detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage omitting from her breath. She was then cited with offenses involving underage persons and open container.
