Police Blotter: Journey Tribute, Graffiti-Style
The title of a popular Journey song making an appearance on a street sign was one of many incidents reported in this week's police log.
At approximately 10:45 p.m. Oct. 10, Greenfield police took a call regarding a stop sign that had been vandalized in the 4700 block of West Layton Avenue.
The word “don’t” was written above “stop.” “Believing,” of course, was written below.
The Department of Public Works was notified of the graffiti.
It is not known if DPW workers recovered the sign With Open Arms or told police they’d fix it Any Way You Want It.
That and the following reports were included in the Greenfield Police Department’s log for the week of Oct. 8-14:
- An employee at AT&T, 4739 S. 76th St., reported a man took a 16-gig iPhone 5 without paying for it and fled at approximately 7:30 p.m. Oct. 8.
