November 7, 2007

Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office

  • A deer caused a non-injury accident around 7:40 p.m. Oct. 22, at 187th Street north of Seymour Road. Benjamin Murphy, 28, Tonganoxie, was driving south on 187th Street when two deer entered the road from the west shoulder. Murphy applied the brakes, but struck the second deer that entered the road. Murphy's 2007 Chevy Trailblazer was damaged on the front bumper and driver's side headlight. The estimated damage was $3,000.
  • A Tonganoxie man, currently in Salina for military training, reported that several items had been taken from his Tonganoxie home sometime after Oct. 23. The 34-year-old Tonganoxie man reported that his ex-wife was staying at his home until Oct. 23. The man told his wife that when she moved out not to take any of his property. The man's brother inspected the residence on Oct. 24 and informed the homeowner that some of his property was missing. The homeowner reported that office equipment, tools, a television, stereo, couch, DVDs, an entertainment center and DVD player had been stolen. Because the man is in Salina, he could not fully report all of what was missing and the total valued amount is not known at this time, the report said.
  • Around 9:30 p.m. Oct. 25, deputies discovered a house vandalized in the 14800 block of Linden Road. A 58-year-old neighbor reported that he heard strange banging from an abandoned home east of his residence. When deputies arrived they found a door with a large dent and broken exterior wall light. The deputies entered the home through an unsecured window and found several doors, countertops and walls had been vandalized with graffiti and destroyed. No suspects were found. The reporting neighbor stated that the home had been vandalized several times before this incident.
  • The Leavenworth mother of a 12-year-old reported that around 3:30 p.m. Oct. 26, the boy was waiting for the bus after school when an Easton youth hit him from behind. The youth then grabbed the 12-year-old's shirt and began punching him in the face repeatedly. When deputies made contact with the boy, his face was red and both of his cheeks were swollen. The boy's mother did not want medical treatment for her son because his injuries appeared superficial. At the time of the report, contact with the suspect was unsuccessful.
  • Around 12:25 a.m. on Oct. 27, 23-year-old Todd Unmack was in an accident involving a deer on County Road 29, south of Kansas Highway 92. Unmack was south on CR 29 when a deer entered the road from the west shoulder. The deer hit Unmack's windshield, driver side mirror and driver side rear side panel.
  • Managers of the Whispers Gentlemen's Club reported criminal damage to their property around 1:45 a.m. Oct. 28. The report stated that a 27-year-old Kansas City, Kan., employee was upset that a customer had not paid for her services. The woman began yelling at the customer instead of having management handle the problem. One of the men in the club was the woman's boyfriend and he got involved in the argument. The club managers removed the woman from the public area of the club while the patrons and employees were asked to leave. The woman along with another employee, a 21-year-old Kansas City Kan., woman, did not leave through the club's main exit, but through the manager's private office, which has an exit to the parking lot. The manager found the door to the private office damaged.
  • A 23-year-old employee of Honey Creek Disposal reported that he was bitten in the leg by a 6-month-old dog around 11:03 a.m. Oct. 29, in the 16600 block of Dunnigan Road. The employee was picking up trash at the home when a medium-sized tan dog that lived in the home ran around from the back and bit him in the ankle through the man's pants and sock, but it did not break the skin. The report stated that his employee required him to report any dog attacks to the authorities. The dog's owner contacted the sheriff's office and told officers that the dog had its first set of shots, but had not yet gotten its rabies shots.
  • A 60-year-old Bonner Springs man discovered his mailbox had been vandalized sometime before 11:28 a.m. Oct. 21 in the 17900 block of 158th Street.

  • Two cars were involved in a collision around 3:40 p.m. Oct. 29 on U. S. Highway 73 more than a mile east of County Road 33.
