This visit to the playground didn't end the way one child hoped, but hopefully police efforts will prevent it from happening again.
At 8:39 p.m. Friday, police received a call from Possibility Playground in Upper Lake Park, according to the police report. The caller said a hornets' nest was found inside a "talking pipe" on the equipment.
Hornet spray was obtained and the nest was destroyed; the area was cleaned up of any poison that a child could come into contact with.
More from the reports:
- You can take a tour, you know: The Port Washington Police Department received a call from marina staff after noticing two or three people climbing the lighthouse — and then jumping off. Police responded to the scene and found two people leaving the area who were spoken to and warned, but they denied actually going on the lighthouse.
- A clean crime: A 36-year-old Port man called police at 11 p.m. Friday from the Maytag Coin Laundry, 207 W. Seven Hills Rd. He told police his his clothing and bed linens were stolen from the dryer, and that this was the second time it had happened.
- Um ... Police noticed a 21-year-old Port man hanging out behind George Webb at 3:14 a.m. Wednesday. The man could not offer police a reason for why he was there, and he was issued a citation for loitering.
