Nov. 17

A man who had a falling out with his roommate—a man previously accused of breaking a door and putting a hole in a wall at the Woodbury home—called police to report that his cat was missing, and he suspected his roommate of taking the animal. It was described as looking “just like Garfield.” His roommate had chastised him in the past for not spending enough time with the cat. Furniture was also rearranged.

Nov. 18

A man called police to report that two pit bulls had chased him near his home. Police made contact with the owner of the dogs, who did not seem surprised to hear about the incident and told officers her dogs do not like men.

She has a history of police contacts regarding animal complaints.
