10/11 Police blotter

A selection of recent calls received by Clovis-area law enforcement officers, according to call logs:

• At 6 p.m. Thursday, police arrested an 18-year-old male on a warrant for failing to appear at his Sept. 2 sentencing at Magistrate Court.

The man’s sentencing stemmed from a charge of driving without a license. He was at Magistrate Court when the officer located and identified him.

The young man was booked at the Curry County Adult Detention Center. He was released on $475 cash bond Thursday.

• At noon Thursday, police responded to a call from a 56-year old-man, who reported the theft of his tool-kit, scanner, power cord and garage door opener from his truck parked on 11th Street.

The officer did not find any signs of forced entry, and could not dust for prints because it had been raining. No suspects have been identified. The case remains under investigation.

• At 2 p.m. Wednesday, a policeman saw three students cross Thornton Street when the signal prohibited pedestrian crossing.

In answer to the police officer’s inquiry, the students said drivers in the vehicles waved at them to cross the road. The officer issued jaywalking citations to each student.

• At 10 a.m. Wednesday, a policeman responded to a call from a business on the 1900 block of Prince Street, regarding a 46-year-old man who allegedly stole a bottle of Finest French Vodka, and tried to push past a store employee in trying to flee. Store employees detained the suspect until police arrived. The man was taken to the Curry County Adult Detention Center, booked and charged with shoplifting, simple battery and fined $100.
