3-7 Police blotter

Samplings of recent calls received by Clovis-area law enforcement officers, according to reports:

About 3 p.m. Feb. 18 an officer responded to Clovis Municipal Court for assistance with a juvenile.

The judge told the officer she was having trouble with a 14-year-old she had assigned community service for numerous traffic tickets.

She said she noticed the boy drove to court to perform his community service even though he did not have a license, and said he was disrespectful and not taking his punishment seriously.

The judge said she was running out of options for dealing with him.

Another employee in the building also told the officer the day prior she caught the boy throwing rocks while he was supposed to be working and had to reprimand him out of fear he would hit a vehicle with them.

The officer charged the youth with disorderly conduct and driving without a license and transported him to the juvenile detention center.


Around 9 p.m. Feb. 18 an officer responded to a residence in the 1200 block of Prince Street for a report of burglary.

A woman said someone broke her back door and went through her possessions. She said nothing appeared to be taken with the exception of half a bottle of vanilla flavored Vodka.

Noting damage to the back door, the officer dusted the bottle for fingerprints but found none.

The office noted he did not swab the bottle for DNA because the woman told him she drank from the bottle after discovering the break-in.

The officer was unable to contact neighbors or find any witnesses.


About 2 a.m. Feb. 20 an officer responded to a residence in the 3000 block of Autumnwood for a report of loud music.

The officer noted he could hear loud music as he approached the residence and was advised by a supervisor that officers had been called to the residence previously for a noise complaint.

The officer issued the two male residents a citation for residential loud noise.


About 7 a.m. Feb. 21 an officer responded to a residence in the 500 block of West Ninth Street for a report of rape.

The female resident said a man came to the door that morning and she did not know him.

She said she did not want to let him in, but he insisted he knew a family member of hers and asked if she had something he could put gas in.

When she told him no, she said he asked to use her bathroom so she let him in and said he came out of the bathroom holding a handgun.

She said he told her he was going to rape her and took her in a bedroom, where he raped her holding the gun to her head.

She said when he finished, he told her if she followed him, he would kill her child.

The woman gave officers a description of the man and was taken to have a sexual assault examination.

An officer found what appeared to be a used condom near the back door of the residence.
