Officers responded to the area for a reported breaking and entering of a motor vehicle. The caller stated that he lives behind the Beaver Country Day School's parking lot. He heard loud noises coming from the parking lot. He looked out to see what the noise was and observed three males standing around a silver sedan in the parking lot. The caller decided to drive over to the parking lot, and observed one of the males had a fire extinguisher in his hand and was spraying it all over the sedan. The other male had a baseball bat in one hand, and was banging on the window with his other hand, yelling something at a male sitting in the driver's seat of the vehicle. At this time the males saw the caller and attempted to flee the area in the silver sedan. He was able to record the license plate.

Officers entered one of the school buses in the parking lot because the door was ajar in attempt to further investigate. The odor of freshly burnt cigarettes and intoxicating liquor were on the bus.

Occurred after 9/9 - Freeman St

Officers reported to the area for a reported larceny. The victim noticed that two snow blowers that he stores outside his back door had been removed. He reported suspicious behavior in the area last weekend.

On 9/10/11, he discovered that the trash barrels behind their building had been loaded with construction debris. He is aware that this type of waste must be disposed of at a dump, and he states no one on his property is currently having work done. Amongst the debris he located a bag of trash that contained discarded mail addressed to an individual in Wilmington.
