Police Blotter for 10/22


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

Police received a call from a gas station on 700 South Prince Street about 11 p.m. Oct. 15 where the clerk reported a customer had blood on him and said he had been stabbed in his lower leg, abdomen, and chest. The customer returned to his home before police arrived, telling the clerk his wife was in danger.

Upon arrival, police determined residents were having a party at which the stabbing victim and others began to fight. One man was arrested and taken to Plains Regional Medical Center for treatment prior to transportation to the county jail.

Responding to a report of a stolen gas meter, police arrived at the 1300 block of East Fourth Street and met with gas company personnel.

The gas company meter reader said he found a meter at a residence where there was not supposed to be any gas service. The meter number corresponded to another vacant residence where the meter was missing. The meter indicated $129.35 worth of unauthorized gas usage.

Police arrested a hit-and-run driver for driving while intoxicated following a crash at the corner of 21st and Main streets about 5 p.m. Thursday.

The driver remaining at the scene said she was westbound on 21st Street in a 2001 Ford pickup when she stopped for the traffic light and was rear-ended by a 1989 Buick, which then fled the scene. An unknown third party followed the hit-and-run driver to the 2100 block of Fred Daugherty Drive and called in an anonymous tip to police, who later arrested an 18-year-old Texico driver.
