He was arrested, transported to the police department and then released from custody after he was given a court date.

Fraud: At 2:35 p.m. at the Club Palisades apartments, officers responded to a report of a fraud and interviewed the victim who reported an unknown person called him and asked him for his social security number. The victim gave his information due to the caller stating he was a law enforcement officer of some kind. The victim was unable to give any accurate suspect information.

He cashed the check and spent the money before the check returned as fraudulent. He said the bank advised him it was a fraudulent check. He did not know why someone would send him the check. Police were unable to determine a crime due to there being no loss.

Burglary: At 6 p.m. at 32275 32nd Ave. S., an unknown suspect entered a construction site for the Davita office building and stole two welders that were hoisted up to the ceiling with a chain hoist.
