On Thursday, April 14 the signal lights at several Irvington intersections went out after a tree trimmer misjudged the trajectory of a falling branch. The branch hit a 12,000 volt power line causing it to snap and fall onto the road. Officer Fowlie investigated the incident.
Two residential burglaries occurred on Lake Mead Drive on Thursday, April 14. In the first incident, loss of electronic equipment and a 2007 Honda Oddesey van was reported. Another house was robbed of electronic equipment. Police canvassed the neighborhood and learned that a 17-year-old white male juvenile was seen knocking on doors in the neighborhood. He was last seen wearing a black sweatshirt and dark hat.
A resident on Hillview Drive called because his "alcoholic" brother-in-law was hallucinating and had armed himself with a shotgun. Multiple units responded. The resident was eventually able to secure the weapon. By telephone, Officer T. Martinez was able to convince the suspect to come out of the house.
