    A man was arrested for driving on a suspended license and not having insurance for his vehicle at 11:10 a.m. Nov. 11.

    An officer ran a records check on the man’s license plate and found that the plate and the car’s registration were suspended.

    The officer pulled over the car at North Euclid Avenue and East Linden Street. The man did not have his driver’s license or proof of insurance.

    He was cited and released, and his vehicle was impounded.

    A man was cited and released for displaying a fictitious license plate Nov. 11.

    A records check showed the license plate on a dark blue 1990 Acura Legend was actually registered to a 1993 BMW belonging to a man in Phoenix.

    An officer pulled over the driver – who did not have his driver’s license with him – and asked him about the plate. The man said the plate belonged to his uncle. Police informed the driver that it is illegal to display a plate registered to another car.

    The man said he bought the car from an auction in Phoenix for $500 on Nov. 9. He then drove the vehicle to his uncle’s house and asked him for help in getting temporary registration online. They successfully purchased temporary registration but were unable to print it, as the printer was not working. The uncle then gave the man his plate off of his car and told him he could use the plate until his car was registered.

    The man told police he knew he was breaking the law but did it anyway. He accepted responsibility and was cited and released.

    The car was parked along a curb until the man could purchase temporary registration online. The fictitious license plate was placed into property as evidence.

    An officer was dispatched to the Sixth Street Parking Garage, 1201 E. Sixth St., following an alleged hit-and-run on Nov. 10.

    The officer met a woman around 2:54 p.m. She said she parked her car, a 1998 Toyota Camry, around 8 p.m. on Nov. 9. and last saw it around 9:30 p.m. Sometime between then and 1 p.m. the next day, someone struck the car and damaged the rear bumper.

    Police have no suspects or witnesses.

    A black Samsung phone was lost east of Jett’s Wildcat, 501 N. Park Ave., at 3:40 p.m. Nov. 10.

    A woman flagged down an officer while waiting at Jett’s for a shuttle to Phoenix. She said she had been using her phone in front of the store before the shuttle arrived, and realized the phone was missing.

    The woman was advised to cancel her phone service.

    Police have no suspects or witnesses.

    Another woman reported her Samsung cell phone lost at 5:27 p.m. Nov. 10.

    The phone was last seen Nov. 5 at 9 a.m., in her purse at home. She noticed the phone was lost at 8 p.m. The woman tried calling the number several times, but there was no answer.

    The phone could not be tracked through GPS, so the woman canceled her contract with Verizon Wireless.

    The woman requested no further action.
