You can open a Barklay's bank account online "in minutes," unless you're a crook. Then the bank will notify you and decline the application. Two close calls for one poor subject, and so far, no leads.

A gold Chrysler with expired tags parked at Natalie and Blumert was towed.

June 3 City ordinance
A homeowner and 30 friends celebrating his 50th birthday were told to tone down the noise from the live band (let me guess -'80s music?) and go inside. Seems "Girls (and guys) Just Want to Have Fun." But "Time after Time" police have to tell "Everybody (who) wants to Rule the World" to "Beat It!"

Police think the victim could be vulnerable again. The bank is involved.

June 5 Suspicious Circumstances
Someone followed teenage girls along Center Street via drone.
"Oh give me a drone, when the girls are alone, and they cannot tell me 'buzz off.' But following peeps really gives them the creeps, and the cops say no aircraft aloft..."
