The following information was obtained from recent police reports.
A resident at the 9300 block of Wedgewood Drive reported seeing a wolf near the fourth hole of the nearby golf course. An officer responded but did not find the animal, and assumed it was a coyote because it was spotted during coyote mating season.

A driver was stopped at Tamarack Road and Seasons Parkway when a teenager in another car gave him the finger. He put his hands up as if to say, “What?” As the stoplight turned green, the man drove away, and saw a flash from the other car’s rear passenger-side window. He also heard a bang and something hit his car. He pulled into the Taco Bell parking lot and called 911. His vehicle had a small pea-sized chip on one of its doors. An officer determined an air gun or BB gun caused the damage.
A man who got change for a $100 bill at the Starbucks inside Kowalski’s later tried to use one of the $20 bills he received, only to learn it was counterfeit when he tried to use it at Target. Police made contact with employees at Starbucks and asked them to report any other phony bills. The bill was sent to the Secret Service.
