Sunday, Aug. 14
*A large yellow bus from Klamath County School District was dragging a chain near the 23500 block of Redwood Hwy. at 10:54 a.m. The driver secured the chains with zip ties until the mechanical issues with hydraulics could be serviced.
*A bearded redhead with a cigarette behind each ear was driving with a child on his lap near Redwood Hwy. and W. Hanby Lane at 11:06 a.m.
*At 5:28 p.m. a fugitive at Josephine Camp Campground refused to identify himself to law enforcement, but he had very recognizable tattoos, including a pot leaf on his neck and “Mom tried” on his shoulder. Bronson Anderson had a warrant from Jackson County Sheriff’s Office for failure to appear (FTA) for felon in possession of firearm, so he was detained in Josephine County Jail (JCJ). He was also charged with providing false information to a peace officer and issued a citation for interfering with forest officer and displaying false tabs.
*A resident in the 100 block of Aquarius Way reported that someone shot out a window in his home at 8:31 p.m. A projectile and a softball-sized hole in the glass were clues.

*At 11:15 a.m. a gal in the 1500 block of Lone Mountain Road still had swollen eyes from when she was assaulted in mid-June. The bully has strawberry-blond hair, with one blue eye and a different-colored left one.
*Three windows were broken out of a blue 2009 Scion that was parked near Seats Dam in the 800 block of Airport Drive on Aug. 14 at noon. Stolen items include military backpacks, a tent, ice chest, cot, fishing gear, video game, box of ammunition, and an AR-15 gun.

Tuesday, Aug. 16
*A guy jumped on a vehicle, which then rolled over his foot at 7:39 p.m. in the 400 block of S. Redwood Hwy. Hopalong was transported to Asante Three Rivers Medical Center. (Play stupid games?)

Friday, Aug. 19
*An uncooperative caller was slurring her words when she phoned 911 at 1:42 a.m. near the 4000 block of Caves Hwy. The ungrateful gal yelled at the dispatcher to stop harassing her, then hung up.

Saturday, Aug. 20
*At 12:26 a fellow went to the 900 block of Lakeshore Drive and learned that while he was incarcerated, his family was evicted. Furthermore, his trailer was being dismantled because it was left there while he was in jail.
