Landlord fraud

Money was sent to the believed landlord but it was later discovered the address was not valid as a rental. Police spoke with the reporting party and collected additional information.”

Trouble at the bank

“Police responded to a local bank regarding a dispute between a customer and the bank located on the 400 north block of 2nd East. Customer was receiving unwanted charges on a debit card after the card would be suspended and deactivated. The bank stated that they would correct the problem. The customer was irate. The bank asked that the customer be trespassed from their bank and money would be returned to customer.”

It’s not a car; it’s a plane!
