Police responded to a complaint of four youth throwing garbage from the top of the grandstands on Thursday. The youth picked up all the garbage at the direction of the police; they were warned of their actions and taken home.

While police were on a routine patrol on Jan. 28, they came across two dogs at large in the south end of the City. The dogs had tags on them and were returned to the owner with a warning given.

Police want to remind everyone with animals that if they are at large they could be charged, and if those animals attack a person or another animal, much more serious charges could result.
