Yesterday at approximately 9:30am we responded to the report of several vehicles involved in a collision on Highway #1 Westbound near Spruce Lake.
As a result of the weather and road conditions a decision was made to close Highway #1 near this area. The highway was closed for most of the day, opening up last evening.

At 2:04am, early this morning, we responded to gun shots being fired at a residence off of Main Street, North End.  Our preliminary investigation revealed a gunshot being fired at a residence, which entered inside this building while the occupants were inside.  No one was injured as a result of this shooting. Our Identification Unit was called out and has forensically processed the scene. Our Major Crime Unit is investigating.

Lastly to report, at 5:32am we responded to a break and enter at a residence off of Cranston Avenue in the North end. The occupants of this residence were asleep when the culprit(s) entered this home.
One of the home owners awoke to some noise and confronted a male suspect who was described as being approximately 5’ 7” tall wearing a dark hoody.  This suspect took off running and was believed to have jumped into a gold colored Chevrolet  Cavalier or Sunfire type vehicle.  Our investigation is currently continuing.
