12-20 Police blotter

Samplings of recent calls received by Clovis-area law enforcement officers, according to reports:

About 9 p.m. Dec. 4 officers responded to a residence in the 800 block of Fourth Street for a domestic dispute.

A man met them outside the residence, bleeding from a wound on his head.

He told them he had been drinking with his girlfriend and she asked him to go buy her some drugs. When he told her all he had was a dollar, he said she got mad and started arguing with him and breaking stuff, then hit him over the head with something and left the house on foot.

The man said he did not want to press charges.

About 1 p.m. Dec. 5 an officer responded to a hotel in the 4000 block of Prince Street for a report of larceny.

A clerk said a woman had checked into a room the day before using an Internet reservation.

When housekeeping entered the room to clean the next day, they discovered the TV, clock radio, throw blankets pillows and a lamp were missing.

The hotel had video footage of the vehicle the woman put the items in but a check revealed she had checked in using a false name.

Around 6 a.m. Dec. 6 an officer responded to a residence in the 1200 block of Hinkle for a report of a trespasser.

The officer met with an agitated nude man in the front yard.

The man said he was in bed sleeping with his girlfriend when her former boyfriend broke down the back door and chased him from the house, stealing his pants.

The man said the suspect had been giving them a lot of trouble and might have kidnapped his girlfriend after the officer went into the house to find the girlfriend but could not locate her.

The woman, who told officers she had hidden in the dryer, was later found in the house.

Officers documented damage to the door and a window and also noted the male resident’s tires had been slashed.

Around 4 p.m. Dec. 8 an officer responded to a residence in the 1600 block of Wallace Street for a theft report.

A man said a shed in the yard of his house had blown over the back fence and a woman in a pickup truck stopped and picked it up and drove off.

He said the only reason he was filing a report was because his property manager told him to do so.

The officer documented the incident
