Thursday 10/12/17 2:41 PM - Police were called to a Mosle Road residence for a report of a suspicious vehicle. The caller told dispatch that a gray mini-van entered the driveway and stopped there.

Thursday 10/12/17 4:30 PM - Police were called to a Gladstone residence for a report of a possible burglary. Officer Adam Caruso responded to the residence and spoke with the female caller who advised him that she believes someone has been entering her home the past couple of months, moving items around, and turning up the heat. According to the female, all doors were locked when these incidents have taken place. There were no signs of forced entry to the residence. The caller informed Ofc.
