Police Report

New Mexico man jailed on warrant charge

  Although the community of Frankenmuth was quite busy over the past weekend, the Frankenmuth Police had only a few incidents to handle in the city and the township.

  At 4pm Monday, July 25, Genesee County Sheriff’s Department deputies contacted the FPD regarding a person they had in custody in jail.

  Genesee County was preparing to release a 41-year-old Mount Morris female when a computer check revealed she had an outstanding warrant from the FPD for failure to appear in Saginaw County’s 70th District Court. Bond was set at $2,000 and she was unable to post that amount.

  The FPD traveled to the Genesee County Jail, picked her up and lodged her in the Saginaw County Jail on that charge.

 Shortly before 1:45am on Thursday, July 28, a Saginaw County Central Dispatch 911 call brought the local police to the 500 block of South Main Street for a domestic assault in progress.

  Officers arrived and interviewed the victim, a 29-year-old Spencerville, Ohio man, and the suspect, a 35-year-old female, also from Spencerville.

  The female was highly intoxicated. Further investigation led to the arrest of the female for domestic assault and battery. She was lodged in the Saginaw County Jail. The man sought his own medical treatment.

  Shortly after 11:30am Friday, July 29, Lapeer County Sheriff’s Department deputies contacted the FPD regarding a person of interest they had on a traffic stop.

  Officers determined the driver, a 66-year-old man from Estancia, New Mexico, was wanted on an outstanding warrant from the Frankenmuth P.D. for failure to appear in the 70th District Court on the charge of illegal entry.

  Lapeer and FPD met at the intersection of M-15 and M-57 for the exchange and he was lodged in the Saginaw County Jail on that charge.

  In other FPD news, officers assisted about 200 motorcyclists maneuver through town Saturday afternoon. The group of law enforcement officers were traveling from Flint to Bay City for a dinner event. They also assisted the Frankenmuth Fire Department with traffic details for its 25th annual Frankenmuth Antique Fire Muster.

  The FPD Reserve Unit also participated in the Kroger First Responder Food Drive on Saturday. This summer, Kroger, and Audacy of Detroit, owner of many popular Detroit radio stations, teamed up to combat child hunger, with Zero Hunger Emergency Food Drive campaign.

  FPD Reserve Officer Lee headed the event locally. Citizens were asked to donate non-perishable food items at Kroger locations throughout Michigan, with an attempt to fill a patrol vehicle full of food. Lee brought the department’s Humvee to the store.

  Officers also continued business check-ins with some downtown foot patrol, continued to cover medical calls for service and held a crossing guard luncheon ahead of the upcoming school year, which is set to start on Tuesday, September 6.
