During routine patrol the deputy witnessed the suspect pull out in front of the officer disregarding a stop sign. After stopping the man, the deputy noticed the child was not properly restrained. The deputy found the man to be under the influence of drugs and alcohol. The child was released to the mother.

• On Sept. 18, deputies responded to a call of suspicious activity on Wolcott Road north of McPherson Road. A 45-year-old Leavenworth woman who called the police told officers that two white juveniles had been walking door to door asking for money they claimed was owed to them by her husband. The woman stated that the boys were going to use the money for all-you-can-eat pancakes at Applebee’s. Deputies checked the area, but could not find the suspects. The investigation is still ongoing.
