Police Reports

Sugar Grove police reports

• Someone took a man's cellphone on Wednesday, Feb. 26, while he assisted with youth activities at the Village Bible Church, 847 N. Route 47. The man waited three days to report the theft because someone suggested waiting to see if it was returned. A person the man suspected of taking the phone denied having it to police. The man put a service lock on the phone, which is valued at about $400.

• A female resident told police on Wednesday, Feb. 26, that someone cashed two fraudulent checks, one for $980.76 and $975, from her bank account. The resident showed police that the authentic checks were still in her checkbook and she had not written them to anyone. The resident thinks that whoever produced the fraudulent checks had seen a check written in the past and used that to make up the fake checks. The resident was given a report number and advised to contact police with any new information.

• A homeowner in the 200 block of Whitfield Drive accidentally discharged her shotgun on Thursday, Feb. 27, into a bed. The homeowner had been taking guns out of the closet, and when a 12-gauge Ithaca shotgun was laid on her bed, it discharged. Police said it appeared the shotgun round was a birdshot round that struck the south end of the bed, hitting her bedside table with the pellets traveling through the table and then striking the corner of the southeast bedroom wall. Several pellets were seen on the cabinet and drawer of the table. All of the weapons were cleared and made safe. There were no injuries.
