A Skinners Path man reported at 2:31 p.m. that he hadn’t been able to locate his passport for about two years.

Police received a 4:46 p.m. report from a woman who said an older man in a beige jacket had approached her daughter at the library on Pleasant Street and asked her for directions. “When the mother approached and asked why he wouldn’t ask an adult, he said it was because he figured a high-schooler would know,” wrote police. Police found the man but apparently determined nothing was amiss: “He’s staying at 5 Stacey Street, kicking him loose,” an officer wrote later.

A woman reported at 5:10 p.m. that she’d seen a boy about 14 years old “on the phone, not talking, go into the bushes” at a park on Fader Place. “She said that as she was leaving an hour later, the teen came back out of the bushes with the phone up like he was on it. She said that it seems like he was not talking and didn’t know if the teen was just listening to something. She found it odd because she had never seen or heard of a teen going into the bushes for an hour.” Police were unable to locate the boy.

Police responded to a 6:40 p.m. report that skateboarders were in the middle of the roadway “like they were cars” at West Shore and Pitman roads. An officer wrote later: “Found skateboarders on the side of the road, informed they need to keep to the side of the road.”


Police received an 11:37 a.m. report that “teens or older parties” had stacked picnic tables on top of each other to gain access to the roof of the school on Brook Road. Police wrote: “She stated that the custodians will find them stacked behind the building on Monday morning. She requests that officers do an additional check in the area on weekends.”
