The Port Washington Police Department responded to two calls last week about people stealing gas. In one of the calls, the driver left behind a license, aiding the police in their investigation of the incident.
Mad Max Convenience Store, 1605 N. Wisconsin St. reported a woman left without paying for $43.14 worth of gasoline Nov. 14 at 8:22 a.m. The car she was driving was described as an older car, dark green in color and possibly a Toyota Camry or similar. The woman had a child with her, according to the report.
A woman left without paying for $35.01 of gasoline but she also left behind her wallet containing an expired driver’s license, according to a call from Tri-Par gas station Nov. 15 at 9:15 a.m. Port police issued a citation to a 29-year-old Cecil woman for the theft of the gasoline.
Car hits pedestrian: Nov. 14 at 12:54 p.m., a 55-year-old Port Washington man reported that he was hit by a vehicle backing out of a driveway while he was walking on the sidewalk in the 500 block of Summit Drive. The vehicle struck his left hip. Police contacted the driver, a 17-year-old teen from Port Washington, and warned him.
School fight: A 17-year-old girl from Fredonia was cited for disorderly conduct after Port Washington High School staff reported an altercation between two students at 7:28 a.m. Nov. 15.
In all incidents where an arrest occurred or a citation was issued, a charge is merely an accusation and not evidence of guilt. The arrested person is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
