A Tomahawk man made officer aware of a phone scam attempt this past week. He received the call stating a family member was injured in a crash and needed money. The caller said that there would be a follow-up call with more information. The man said that no money was lost, but wanted police aware of the call.
A man called 911 regarding a note on his door with what appeared to be a littering fine attached to it. The papers turned out to be a prank and not from the police department. The officer also spoke with the man about the proper use of 911, as this matter would not have been a reason to use the service either way.
A resident called police Tuesday stating that someone had done damage to his vehicle. A short time later a 19 year old male contacted the sheriff’s office admitting to what he had done and wanted to turn himself in. He was taken into custody, charged with disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property.
Police were called to West Leather Avenue following a complaint of someone shooting a gun in the city limits. It was determined that two youths were shooting a pellet gun, and the officer warned them about proper use. Prior to the officer’s arrival, however, two adults at the location got into a dispute and a 49 year old male was cited for disorderly conduct as a result.
Police received a report of a man on an ATV driving recklessly, doing wheelies, and speeding on city roads. An officer located the 19 year old. He said he just got the machine and was test driving it. The officer advised him of ATV regulations and warned him for proper registration.
