Weekly Roundup

Weekly Round Up! -Officers responded to the parking lot of Schrader's funeral home, in reference to a vehicle break-in. It was determined that the vehicle's window was smashed, and contents of the vehicle were stolen. Currently, the investigation is ongoing. -While waiting in line for a car wash, at a Ballwin car wash, in a fully marked police car, an Officer observed the driver of the vehicle in front of him, consume an alcoholic beverage and toss it out of the window. The driver was cited for possessing an open container of alcohol and littering. Fortunately, the Officer was able to complete the cleansing of his vehicle upon the conclusion of the incident. -An officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle, after a records check revealed the owner had active warrants. After asking the driver of the vehicle if there was anything illegal in the car, the driver provided one of the most authentic answers we have ever heard. The driver advised "Just me. My license is revoked." Said driver was cited and arrested on the outstanding warrants. and finally, -On Sunday, Chief Scott handed out goodies while conversing with area residents and their four legged loved ones. The Chief advised, that while attempting to tactically deploy a dog treat into a canines mouth, the pooch startled him. This startle reportedly resulted in Chief's most evasive move in approximately 20 years. If you were able to witness Chief's maneuver in person, the rest of BPD is extremely jealous of you! As always, if you need us, we will be there. -BPD
