Port PD: School Bus Cigarette Sales Pitch Lands Teen Citation

A roundup of recent blotter activity also includes a cat and dog on the loose.

It's probably unlikely he was checking IDs when this 15-year-old student was attempting to sell cigarettes on the school bus.

Officers made contact with the teen at 8:05 a.m. Oct. 16 after a report of his activity was called in by the Port Washington High School, according to the police report. They found that the teen was in possession of a pack of Malboro's.

He was cited for Tobacco on School Property, and also suspended for the remainder of the day.

More from the reports:

The caller complained to the police about the loose animal, saying the cat often defecates in the yard as well, according to reports. The owner, a 43-year-old Port woman, was spoken to and advised that she would apologize, adding that she is in the process of finding a new home for the cat.
  • Not so socialable? Police received a call about a loose dog at 3:32 p.m. Oct. 15 in the 200 block of South Garfield Ave. Callers said the dog was lunging at people. The owner was spoken to and warned, though no one knows how the dog got loose in the first place.
