Police logs



Police received a 11:26 a.m. report that a heavyset younger male was sleeping behind the grandstand on Wyman Road.

An officer responded to Smith Street after a 3 p.m. report that a large group of youths were standing in front of the post office and “preventing people from getting in and out of the business.”

A woman contacted police at 3:20 p.m. to talk to an officer about an apartment on Washington Street she found on Craigslist. The woman said she was about to wire a check to somebody in Millville, N.J., to rent to the apartment. “I ... told her there are warnings all over the Craigslist not to wire money and not to rent an apartment sight unseen,” wrote an officer.
