Police Blotter: One Man's Rap is Another's Profanity
The Greenfield Police Department took a couple of odd calls last week regarding two men who perhaps thought they were minding their own business.
Being aware of your surroundings is sound advise for just about everyone, especially these next two men.
On Nov. 28, a caller told police a young man was being very loud and using profanities in front of Ace Cash Express, 6225 S. 27th St.
When police found the man inside George Webb’s with his grandparents, it was suggested to him if he was going to rap in public, he should do so without the swearing.
Meanwhile, a resident on the west side of town told police she saw her neighbor watching a pornographic movie while masturbating in his recliner in the evening hours of Nov. 29.
And while that's not a crime, the caller was concerned because the man was reportedly doing the deed with his blinds open.
Police left a business card at the man’s door.
Those events and the following incidents were included in the Greenfield Police Department’s log for the week of Nov. 24 through Dec. 2:
- Video surveillance showed an iPad was taken off an employee’s desk at Russ Darrow Mazda, 3520 S. 108th St. on Nov. 24.
