Clovis police checked out a drug tip at the 1100 block of North Davis Street about 7:30 p.m. Monday. Residents denied drug use, but a check of identification turned up outstanding warrants on a 40-year-old woman wanted on warrants out of Portales for failure to pay fines and issuing worthless checks.
Police arrested the woman and took her to the Curry County Adult Detention Center where she was served with copies of the warrants.

A 21-year-old Clovis woman received moderate damage to her car after hitting an intoxicated pedestrian about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.
According to police reports, the woman was eastbound on Manana Street and slowing down as she approached Prince Street where the traffic signal was red. She said she never saw the pedestrian, a 45-year-old Clovis man, until she hit him as he was walking into the traffic lane from a business driveway. The pedestrian was transported to Plains Regional Medical Center where he was treated for head abrasions and released.
The pedestrian told police he did not remember being hit by the car. No citations were issued in the incident.

When the boyfriend still had not returned the car by Wednesday morning, police took down additional details, put out a “be-on-the-lookout” order, and advised the girlfriend on how to obtain a restraining order against her boyfriend.
