Sergeant Codey and several officers assisted Detectives with follow-up from the carjacking / kidnapping case that occurred on mid-nights. Detectives located the suspect in a home in Newark. A surround and call-out was attempted, however, the occupants refused to comply. At approximately 1 p.m., a SWAT call-out was initiated, and continued into the evening hours. When the incident was finally stabilized, the "victim" admitted that he fabricated the entire carjack/kidnap story and that he was beaten up by the suspect due to an outstanding debt which he tried to pay off with an ounce of methamphetamine. The "victim" was charged with filing a false police report, and two others with drug and weapons violations.
A call from a Rogers Avenue address reported her adult son for "tearing the house apart". The 25 year-old was upset because his mother refused him pain medication. Officers arrived and found several exterior windows broken out of the house. To further "assist," the reporting party had no interest in pursuing criminal charges but that he might require medical care. Sergeants Gott and McCormick attempted a surround and call out with no response. Sgt. McCormick led a team of officers inside the residence to check on the subject's welfare and found him asleep inside his bedroom. The house was destroyed from top to bottom. The subject was taken for a psychiatric evaluation.
