Port PD: Neighbor Worries About Idling Car, Driver on Cell Phone

A roundup of recent activity from the police blotter also includes a mailbox being hit and a misdialed 911 call.

Oh, the dangers of being behind the wheel looking at a phone.

Police received a call at 6:34 a.m. Nov. 21 in the 900 block of West Lincoln Avenue, when a resident noticed a vehicle that had been running for approximately 30 minutes, according to police reports.

It was found that the vehicle owner was on her phone checking Facebook and texting around the corner from her residence, the report said.

She told police that she did not want to park in her driveway, because she feared her dog would bark and wake up the neighbors.
