First responders were called out to 150 incidents on the final day of 2018.
5:46 am – A pedestrian was struck on Ridge Park Avenue and taken to St. Joes.
8:29 am – A call came in from Poinciana Parkway. A person said their neighbor got his Jeep stuck in the mud in his backyard. The stuck Jeep owner kept gunning the engine causing it to smoke.
10:40 am – Police were called to the Comfort Suites on Dick Road. A woman was told she couldn’t extend her stay in her room because the hotel was booked for the night. She said the hotel was just kicking her out because of her kids. She agreed to leave once police arrived.
10:46 am – A domestic incident report was filed after a man said his ex-wife tried to open up a credit card in his name. (It might sound like revenge, but that’s identity theft!)
12:04 pm – An employee was arrested for stealing from Burlington Coat Factory.
12:18 pm – A driver was arrested on Pine Ridge Road after they were found to be in possession of an inspection sticker that was taken from a garage in Grand Island.
1:27 pm – A woman called police because she thought she was bit by a “poisonous spider”. She was taken to St. Joes by ambulance.
2:43 pm – A driver was taken to ECMC after a crash on Union Road.
5:02 pm – A resident on Kennedy Road called 911 to say someone has been harassing her. Someone urinated on her deck furniture, a person was sitting in the driveway watching her babysitter, and before that someone took the garbage bag out of the tote in the driveway and put the bag next to her car.
5:11 pm – Cleveland Hill, U-Crest and Hy-View firefighters were called to the Buffalo Niagara International Airport for an Alert 2 involving a small plane with five people onboard that had landing issues. The plane landed safely ten minutes after the alert went out.
6:02 pm – One person was taken to ECMC and another person signed off on treatment after a three-car crash on the inbound 33.
11:07 pm – A police report was filed after someone on Midland Drive had a Christmas decoration thrown at their big picture window.
11:52 pm – Get Air on Union Road called for help in getting “unruly teens” out of the facility. There were concerns about parents being threatening at the scene. Everyone was gone before police arrived. The positive news is that officers made a checkpoint stop at the trampoline park earlier in the evening and the only issue with the hundreds of kids there was that a fog machine set off a fire alarm.
