Noisy neighbors leads to MIP and marijuana citations

On Monday, May 7, Rochester Police officers received a noise complaint from the Great Oaks Apartment Complex near downtown. Officers met with the caller and learned that the noisy neighbors, who live above the caller, have caused a disturbance among residents in the past. When officers arrived, from the hall, they reported hearing loud music, a television and several people talking loudly. The officers spoke with the 19- and two 20-year-olds found in the apartment. One of the residents was arrested for a Minor In Possession as he registered 0.037 percent in a consented breath test. Another of the three residents was arrested for possession of marijuana.

Also on Monday, May 7, Rochester Police officers stopped a blue minivan speeding on Parkdale Ave near Elizabeth Street. The driver was traveling 42 miles per hour in the posted 25 miles-per-hour zone. Officers used their LEIN/SOS system to learn the driver’s information and found the 73-year-old Shelby Township man had a warrant out for his arrest. When the warrant was confirmed, officers took the driver in custody. He was given a citation for impeding traffic and was turned over to Shelby Township Police without trouble.
