Impaired driving

A man lost his license for 90 days following a traffic stop at the hospital Saturday night.

Police located the man in the parking lot, keys in hand and behind the steering wheel, and initiated a traffic stop. A roadside breath test was administered and registered a fail.

The man received a 30-day vehicle impound and 90-day driving prohibition related to impaired care and control of a motor vehicle.

A parked vehicle had its window smashed out Friday afternoon.

Around 5 p.m. on May 4, police received a report of a front passenger window being smashed out of a van parked on the 4500 Block of Greig Avenue. Blood was left on the vehicle, which had change stolen from a cup holder. Surveillance footage was present in the area and police have a suspect.
