Hot Springs Village Police Report

Below are some actual police reports listed in this week's paper.

An Alarcon Way resident reported a man sitting in his neighbor’s car for three days. An officer found a fully dressed mannequin wearing sunglasses in the car. The car’s owner said the mannequin’s name was “Ben” and that he makes her feel safe on journeys. The officer thanked the woman for the explanation and, in turn, explained Ben to the resident reporting him.

Either a tough or boring night on the job?

A silver, circular airship with blinking yellow and blue lights landed in Carmona Plaza. While the sudden appearance of an alien spacecraft did not alarm the community, many residents complained that the flying saucer did not have a POA vehicle sticker and that the occupants obviously weren’t from Illinois. (April Fools!)

An officer mediated an altercation between a volunteer and a local fitness facility administrator. The volunteer was told not to return.

A woman reported receiving a late-night phone call from a man she doesn’t know. Further investigation is underway.

A resident reported hearing a noise behind his home the previous evening. In the morning he noticed his shed had moved off its foundation on the left side, though none of the shed’s contents were missing. An officer told the man to call if anything is discovered missing.

A resident distracted by her dog struck the compactor at the recycling center, knocking it six inches off its foundation. The resident was not hurt and vehicle damage was estimated at $2,500.

A resident believes she is being stalked as the spare key to her car is missing from her home and the car’s seat, radio and clock settings have been changed. The resident requested extra patrols.**

A resident reported hearing tones on her phone while speaking to a friend and thus believes her phone is being tapped. An officer checked her cell phone, home phone and lines to the local junction box finding nothing unusual. The officer told the woman to contact her cell-phone service provider.

Animal control retrieved a raccoon trapped in a house and returned it to the forest.

An officer responded in one minute to a home alarm on Entrada Way, finding several doors unlocked. The officer contacted the owner via telephone who said she must have hit a wrong button.

Good new for us---we are not crazy we are being "stalked?. **

2 Timothy 1:7 - For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Good Day Sunshine!

Dan smiled all day! It was a good day-- a sunshine day! It is so much fun to cruise the lake and spy visit the neighbors. One has some brand new landscaping that is a work of art. It is just beautiful.

Beautiful landscaping....beautiful people!

Some were kayaking, some sailing, others fishing or just sitting outside enjoying the sunny weather. A fellow boater and neighbor pulled along side to invite us for dinner. Alright!

Kayaking for fun and excercise!

We enjoyed a concert by the Master Singers in Hot Springs. Friends came to visit overnight. We thoroughly enjoyed their visit. We laughed and swapped tales, toured the village and of course a lake cruise!

Sailing along!

And then there is me.......just unlaxin'...watching all this activity makes you sleepy! :)

Dan's first mate sleeping on the job!

Good friends. Good times. Good weather. Simple fun times. It is all good!

Sunshine is sweet; it is good to see the light of day!
