Police Blotter 7/31

Samplings of recent calls received by Clovis-area law enforcement officers, according to reports:
Clovis police arrested a Clovis man about 10 p.m. Sunday evening for shooting at a home on the 200 block of Torreon.
After a neighbor called with a report of shots fired, police detained an intoxicated man who had been trying to conceal himself in the bushes of a nearby house.
When asked why he was shooting at a neighbor’s house, the man said there are several people out to get him and he needed to let neighbors know he has a gun and knows how to use it. The man said he shot only into the ground, not at any buildings.
Police arrested the man for shooting at an occupied building and negligent use of a deadly weapon.

A Clovis grandmother called police Monday afternoon to report that her 13-year-old grandson had sexually abused her 4 year old grandson.
Police took a report of graphic sexual acts and turned the case over the Special Operations Unit for further investigation.

Police responded about 7 p.m. Monday to a report of vehicle damage in the parking lot of a Clovis grocery store.
Upon arrival, officers found that the driver’s side window had been broken out, but the door was still locked and nothing appears to have been taken from the car. Damage estimated at $300.

After receiving a report about 7:30 p.m. Monday that one driver was threatening the driver of a second car with a knife at the corner of 21st and Cameo, police came to the house of the first driver, found a knife, and arrested him for aggravated assault and reckless driving.

Two vehicles received moderate damage in a Tuesday morning crash at the corner of Grand and Oak.
Police reported that the driver of a gray Mazda had been northbound on Oak, stopped for the stop sign on Grand, pulled into the intersection, and was hit by a westbound blue Ford pickup.
The Mazda driver said she did not see the oncoming pickup and had been injured in the crash, but declined ambulance transport. The Mazda was towed from the scene; the pickup left under its own power.
The Mazda driver was cited for failure to yield at a stop sign.

Police took a report Monday morning that a Clovis resident had sold a 1991 Chevy pickup worth $5,000 and a 1996 Dodge intrepid worth $5,850 under loan agreements to men who agreed not to leave the state. One took his vehicle to Connecticut and the other took his vehicle to Virginia. The first man made a single payment in 2002 but no payments since then.
