Police News & Blotter | October 28 - November 30, 2021
Posted on 12/03/2021
Newcastle PD Patch

During this time frame, 96 total tickets were written, including DUI arrests, suspended license, and not driving with an ignition interlock.

One way or the other, people are going to get the message not to leave anything in their vehicles overnight or for any long period of time. They are either going to see it on the PD Facebook page, here in the blotter, or they, like several folks in this blotter, are going to learn the hard way. I really do hope it’s one of the former rather than the latter. Please, people, lock your doors, close your garages, take everything out of your car. NPD is out every night trying to stop this from happening, but we need your help. Don’t give thieves a reason to keep coming back here.
