¢ Around 1 a.m. May 17, Sheriff's deputies and Alexandria Township firefighters were dispatched to an anhydrous ammonia leak near the intersection of County Road 21 and Kansas Highway 92 in Easton. Deputies set up a perimeter, blocking traffic while the leaking tank's valve was shut off. A 49-year-old Easton man advised deputies the tank was used the previous morning on his fields.

¢ A burglary took place sometime between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. May 20, in the 14000 block of Linwood Road. A 31-year-old Linwood woman reported the burglary and said the only thing taken was a bottle containing prescription medicine.

¢ At 4:30 p.m. May 20, Joseph Hill, Tonganoxie, was traveling south on 155th Street near Donahoo Road when he slowed his vehicle to avoid running over a turtle in the road.

¢ A 43-year-old Basehor man reported that sometime between 7:30 a.m. and 4:50 p.m. May 20, someone entered his residence in the 17000 block of State Avenue by kicking in the rear door.

The loss was estimated at $558.

¢ At 8:40 p.m. May 20, a sheriff's deputy was dispatched to a possible burglary in the 13000 block of 170th Street in Linwood, where a 28-year-old man said he discovered a white male in his 20s standing in his residence wearing gloves. A fight ensued and the suspect fled the scene in a late 1990s model Ford Escort. The victim received a minor bruise under his left eye. Nothing was taken from the residence and an investigation is being conducted on the suspect's identity.
