During the period of Sept. 17-20, the Williams Police Department responded to the following incidents:

Dogs at large

Saturday, Sept. 17

• 11 a.m. ‹ An officer was called to a Williams neighborhood to capture three boxer dogs. The reporting person told the officer that she had found the dogs in her yard. The dogs had displayed aggressive behavior towards another officer.

The reporting party stated all three dogs had been in her back yard and showed the officer where one of the dogs had gone. The dogs had entered the woman's yard from a yard next door.

The officer attempted to locate the other two dogs and make contact with the owner of the dogs. On Sept. 19, the officer received a voice mail dated Sept. 17. The caller had identified herself as the owner of the three dogs. She advised she was looking for two of her dogs and would be fixing her fence to keep the dogs from getting out.

Counterfeit bills

Saturday, Sept. 17

• 1:34 p.m. ‹ An officer was dispatched to a Williams business for a report of two $10 bills that a store clerk suspected to be counterfeit. Upon the officer's arrival, the clerk confirmed the suspected currency was counterfeit with an identification marking pen.

The individual that had attempted to use the currency told the officer she had received the money from her father. The father, who is self-employed, travels to markets, fairs and swap meets to sell merchandise. Because of the business, the family receives and exchanges large amounts of cash and the currency went undetected.

The woman's father told police that he believed he had taken the suspicious bills from a customer in Paulden. The case remains pending further investigation.


Tuesday, Sept. 20

• 2:04 p.m. ‹ A Williams man came to the WPD to report $120 missing from his truck. He believed the theft occurred at Cureton Park the previous day, between 9-10 p.m.

The man told the officer that he had been at a get together the previous evening. He left his wallet opened in the front passenger seat under a sweatshirt. He told police he checked on the wallet and money about three times and nothing was missing until he checked his wallet in the morning.

The case remains pending.
