We had a very special guest today from the Gary Sinise Foundation! Thank you for everything you have done for our brother.
We responded to a report of stealing from a local grocery store. The subject was able to steal over $500 worth of merchandise consisting solely of alcohol. This report is under investigation and will hopefully be resolved soon.
Halloween night and the days around it did not provide us with much content for the weekly roundup. This is a good thing. The biggest problems we received were for people stealing all of the candy out of bowls left on porches or unfortunately the destruction of those cool inflatables in yards. We did have a great time getting to see all of the costumes (see attached photo).
An officer was dispatched in reference to an electric medical scooter parked in front of an address unattended. The officer responded to the area and recognized the scooter as belonging to a gentleman from the area who normally walks his dog. The officer was able to locate the address of the gentleman and checked his residence, while another officer stayed with the scooter. They discovered the battery had died on the scooter and that several friends of the man had picked him up and were in the process of returning for the scooter. This is one of those calls that officers are glad they can help with and when others are already helping reminds us all why we love being in Ballwin.
Officers responded to a call for a suspicious person in a neighborhood south of Manchester. The report was of a male in his mid 20s riding a skateboard. The caller was concerned not only because the individual was having difficulty staying upright on the skateboard, but also because he was carrying a box of bananas. We were unable to locate the subject, but have not received any reports of slips due to banana peels.
Ballwin Police Explorer Post 9220 is looking to lend a helping hand this Holiday Season.
One reason the Ballwin Police Department started an Explorer Post was to get area youth involved in the community.
Starting this Holiday Season, we want to volunteer our time at events designed to help those in need at local churches or non-profit organizations in the Ballwin area.
If your church or non-profit has an event this November or December, that benefits a great cause, and you could use a little extra help, please reach out to us.
Check our availability for your event by contacting Officer Derek Loeffel by email at:
email@example.com or phone at:
