No sleepovers allowed
2/28 at 7:02 a.m. A woman who was checking her father’s residence while he was away called police to report a strange SUV parked in front of the garage, which was open. When officers investigated, they found a 17-year-old boy in the house who turned out to be a relative of the father’s girlfriend. He claimed he and three of his friends needed a place to spend the night after a party. He had rigged the door so he could gain access to the inside. He was told to leave and the woman was going to contact her father.
