Port Police Report: Officers Respond to Loud Banging in Middle of Night

A roundup of the latest activity from the police blotter.

Picture this: You live in an apartment. It's 2:59 a.m. There's a loud banging coming from the walls of a neighboring apartment.

There's a few scenarios that could drift into your vision right now, but the truth is you probably couldn't make this one up.

Police responded to a call about loud banging at 2:59 a.m. Jan. 30 in the 400 block of Oakland Avenue. The suspicious part of it all was, however, that this apartment unit has been vacant for months.

Police found that a cleaning service was inside the unit.

The business should probably consider some more reasonable operating hours.

More from the reports:

  • Yes, the parking lot is part of the property: Something at the Mad Max Convenience Store has this 50-year-old man hooked. The man, a Port resident, was spoken to at 11:08 a.m. Jan. 30 after driving through the parking lot of the store at 1100 S. Spring St., despite the fact that he has been banned from the property. The man told police we wasn't aware he couldn't drive through the lot. The police told the man he would be cited for trespassing if it happened again.
  • Wrongly accused Peeping Tom? A resident in the 1000 block of Westport Drive called police at 11:22 a.m. Jan. 29 because a man who was walking his dog was also peeking into the residents windows. The 46-year-old Port Washington resident denied looking in the home, but said he would stay off the property in the future.
  • Teenage tantrum: Police responded to a call at Thomas Jefferson Middle School, 1403 N. Holden St., at 1:44 p.m. Feb. 1 about a 12- and 13-year-old boy that were in a "scuffle." They were both given one week of detention, as well as a warning from police officers. 
  • McD's trip ends badly for drunken driver: His theory could have easily alligned with the lyrical statement, "It's 5 o'clock somewhere," because this 56-year-old Two Rivers man was both drinking and hungry at 4:34 p.m. Jan. 29. Police responded to the scene of an accident at the McDonald's Restaurant, 1700 N. Wisconsin St., Port Washington, that day after the driver had steered the car through the drive-thru, over a curb, through the lot and into a light pole. He was arrested for drunken driving, third offense. It doesn't appear that he got to eat any McDonald's.
