Police blotter — March 23

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

Around 8 p.m. March 2 an officer responded to a residence in the 3000 block of Adenmore Court to do a welfare check on a resident.

A family member told the officer he had not heard from his 66-year-old relative for several days.

The officer noted after a locksmith was called to open the door, the man was found deceased on the floor and had been deceased for some time.

Another officer relayed that three days prior police had received an incomplete 911 call from the residence but when they responded the man answered the door and told them everything was fine.

A medical examiner was called to the scene and the officer noted that based on what was observed at the residence, the cause of death was unknown.

About noon March 3 an officer responded to a business in the 200 block of West 22nd Street for a report of a found child.

A manager said a customer found a young child wandering around the parking lot alone.

The officer spoke to the boy, who was able to give the names of his parents and an older brother. However the officer checked both police and school databases and was unable to locate any further information on the family.

When the officer contacted a child services worker, the person found the child’s family listed in the system and gave the officer contact information for them.

The officer spoke to the boy’s mother by phone, who told him she thought her child was with her mother. He informed her he would be turning the child over to the custody of social workers, and she could contact them and make arrangements to pick up her son.

Around 6 p.m. March 4, an officer responded to a residence in the 400 block of Connelly Street for a report of several cows locked in a shed in a back yard.

The caller told dispatchers they could hear a cow mooing at night.

The officer heard cows as he approached the residence and when he walked around to the alley behind the residence, he was able to count four cows visible through a gap in the door of a shed in the yard.

The officer documented what he was able to observe from the alley.

No one answered the door at the residence so the officer noted intent to summons the resident to municipal court on charges of exceeding the number of livestock permitted in the city and a noise disturbance.

About 10 p.m. March 4, an officer responded to the dispatch department at the police department.

A female dispatcher said a man followed her into the parking lot and got out of his vehicle and tried to get in the passenger door of her vehicle.

She said when he didn’t get in he went back to his vehicle and drove away.

The officer put out an alert describing the man’s vehicle.
