Police Log


— An Alice Drive resident reported Thursday receiving a call from someone claiming to be her grandson and that she needed to pay his bond so he could get out jail. The woman said she would have her attorney contact him, and then she checked and learned her grandson was fine. This is common scam in which the caller wants personal information, but the woman provided none. An officer called the “grandson” and he hung up.
