Police logged a number of rests over the weekend, including cases of DUI, vandalism and burglary.

Thomas Lyons, 21, was placed under citizens' arrest on Thanksgiving day for trespassing. According to a report by Officer Clay Mahaney, Lori Smiley called police and said two or three men were trying to enter the building at 415 N. Muskogee Ave. from the roof. Mahaney spotted the men going down a stairwell in the back of the building. The men were detained and arrested, and booked for trespassing and public drunk.

Richard Russell, 43, was arrested last week for DUI.

A 16-year-old male was issued a citation for possession of marijuana and released to his sister Sunday after officers found him in possession of about 1 gram of the substance. He also had digital scales.

Anthony Thomas, 23, was arrested last week for public intoxication. While being booked at the police station, the suspect was forced to empty his pockets, which revealed a baggy of approximately 1.2 grams of marijuana.

A 17-year-old girl filed a report last week concerning a missing iPod.

Bobby Lisko told police his ex-wife became angry at him and knocked his rocks and crystals off a shelf onto the floor. She also allegedly spit in his face.

Mary Kremmer said her boyfriend hit her in the face, knocking her to the ground. The suspect left the residence, and police have talked with a witness. Marks and bruises were documented on the victim. The suspect also punched a hole in the bedroom door earlier the same day.

Tonya Sappington filed a vandalism report last Thursday. Sappington said while she was asleep, she heard a loud crash and looked outside. Two people ran north from her residence to a silver sports car parked in the street and left the area. When she went outside the next morning, her vehicle had been wrapped in plastic wrap, and a north window on her residence had been broken out.
