ROCHESTER POLICE PATROL: Who Just Drives Around Destroying Property?


Rochester & Rochester Hills Gazette – March 14, 2019

■ SOMEONE HAS HIS INFORMATION – On March 1, a Rochester resident came into the station to report a fraud. The resident said he was alerted that someone attempted to use his personal information twice. The first attempt was to get a cash advance and the second attempt was to get a loan. Both attempts occurred at separate locations and the resident said he was currently not out any money.

■ LATE STOP AND SWERVE – Saturday night after 2 a.m., a Rochester officer was in the area of University and Main and observed a vehicle stopped past the stop bar, blocking the crosswalk. The officer followed the vehicle on northbound Main and observed the vehicle swerve to the left so its driver’s side tires were driving on the double yellow lane divider. A traffic stop was conducted, and the officer made contact with the driver, a 19- year-old Bloomfield Hills woman. The officer observed signs the female driver had been drinking and she was placed through field sobriety testing. The female failed all offered tests and was transported to the Rochester police department where she agreed to an offered breath test with results of a .16%BAC and .18%BAC. The female was held until sober and released with a pending court date for operating while intoxicated.

CLASSLESS GLASS THROWER – Last Monday, a Rochester resident who lives on the 700 block of Great Oaks Blvd. came into the station to report an unknown person had thrown a glass bottle through the back window of his vehicle, destroying the window. The resident said the incident occurred sometime between 7 p.m. on Saturday and 7 a.m. on Monday. The case has been assigned to the detective bureau.
