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

About 7 p.m. May 4 an officer responded to a restaurant in the 200 block of Seventh Street for a report of theft.

A clerk told the officers a group of five young children ordered $46 in food.

She said when she delivered the food to the children, they grabbed it and ran without paying.

A cook from the restaurant said he chased the kids but just as he was gaining on them, a resident from a nearby building shoved a BB gun at him and he stopped and returned to the restaurant.

Officers spoke to the man with the BB gun. He said he didn’t know the children but intervened because he thought they were going to be harmed.
