March 11: "Male party left in an ice-cream truck, intoxicated, threw gravel all over the calling party's vehicle."
March 15: "It's in regards to someone who was pulled off the bus for sniffing glue and causing a disturbance."
March 18: "...an unknown male in his underwear. He's standing on the calling party's porch, asking for money and refusing to leave."
March 19: "Four to five black males...they're driving the ice-cream truck, last seen northbound, and they're driving it very erratically... He said it looked like some juveniles...he was almost hit head-on by them."
March 20: Reported shooting (which turned out to be unfounded) at the Bunker Hills trailer park. "Calling party said one of his neighbors shot him about an hour ago."
