The day started out with someone turning in a decent sized box of ammunition that was part of an estate. Some of the cartridges were quite old, hand loaded and showed signs of decomposition. This is a potential sign that the ammunition could be unstable and required special handling. I catalogued it and arranged for proper destruction.
The first day shift coming back from a set of holidays always feels like a bit of a catch up day. I got through some emails, read the last 12 days of reports and answered some routine calls.
I start the day in our other zone again with a quick breakfast. The morning gets off to a fairly routine start and I have time to conduct a few traffic stops. Surprisingly the theme of the morning was 3 drivers with no driver’s licenses. All 3 had been cancelled or revoked for one reason or another and all 3 were stopped because they had very obviously committed driving offenses in front of me.
I worked the Charlie shift again this block and it was quite busy. The shift started out fairly routine and we covered some patrol calls. While clearing from one, I noticed a suspicious male walking around a vehicle. Upon checking him we came across some drugs and stolen property in his vehicle. We arrested him, took him to cells to book in, photograph and fingerprint then release with a court date.
