Police Blotter 10/17


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

Clovis fire investigators reported an Oct. 8 car fire at the 1200 block of West Seventh Street looked suspicious but they could not find evidence of arson.

The vehicle owner told police he had purchased a 1995 Cadillac DeVille for the engine and for parts, and estimated its value at $2,500.


Responding to a report of shots fired about 2:45 a.m. Sunday, police interviewed residents on the 200 block of East 13th Street who said they had been hiding in their bedroom for about 10 minutes after an unknown object crashed through their window.

Police found a brick had been thrown through the window but could not find any evidence of bullet holes or shell casings.


Police responded to a juvenile residential home about 6:30 p.m. Sunday following a report of possible drugs.

Two boys aged 14 and 16 turned over dried mushrooms they had picked at a Clovis park and brought back to the residence as a joke. The boys said they were not drugs.

Police took the mushrooms into evidence for narcotics testing.


Clovis library staff called police about 2:30 p.m. Monday regarding theft of about $150 in cash that had been deposited by library patrons reserving a public room at the library.

Police advised library staff on procedures to safeguard cash deposits in the future.
