Five fake names: At 5:56 a.m. Oct. 11 in the 1600 block of South 312th Street, an officer on foot patrol found two men sleeping in the back of a parking lot.

Makeshift hut: At 12:14 p.m. Oct. 11 in the 1600 block of South 312th Street, officers located a makeshift hut behind a private business with three transient individuals inside. Another transient individual was sleeping beneath a tree in the same area. All four were banned from the property.

Preschool lockdown: At 12:46 p.m. Oct. 11 in the 30000 block of Pacific Highway South, officers responded to reports of illegal gunfire in a wooded area. Officers found four transient campsites along the trails. A female transient was trespassed from the private property. No suspects were located in relation to the sounds of gunshots. A nearby preschool was put on temporary lockdown while police checked the area.

Tow yard arrest: At 3 p.m. Oct. 10 in the 33100 block of 15th Avenue South, an officer responded to a parking complaint and discovered the vehicle’s owner had two misdemeanor warrants.
