Police Blotter

Oct. 25, Lebanon Street, 2:01 p.m.

Hanover Police was called to the Go Go Mart convenience store Wednesday after a clerk noticed that individual cans from a 30-pack of Budweiser had gradually disappeared throughout the day. When police arrived, they discovered the missing, empty beer cans in the fleece coat and car of a 53-year-old male who had apparently consumed the stolen beer.

Upon further investigation, Hanover Police discovered that the man had been picked up the day before at Cumberland Farms convenience store in White River Junction, Vt., for similar conduct. In this incident the intoxicated suspect struck his head while entering the police cruiser, so he was taken to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. The male subject checked out of the hospital against medical advice before being arrested later that day at the Go Go Mart for theft and willful concealment.

Oct. 28, South Main Street, 11:09 p.m.

Hanover Police was called to assist the Fire Department with an intoxicated female subject in front of the Nugget Theatre. When the officer arrived, he observed the female subject, a 20-year-old Dartmouth junior, lying unconscious on the sidewalk next to a pile of vomit. The subject then regained consciousness and was taken to DHMC. She was given the option of taking alcohol diversion classes or appearing for a Nov. 28 court date.

Oct. 30, Old Tuck Drive, 4:05 p.m.

Safety and Security observed two underage teenagers leaving a Dartmouth fraternity. The subjects, who had allegedly smoked marijuana inside, were identified as 15- and 16-year-old Hanover High students. Hanover Police arrived on the scene and took the two subjects into protective custody. The investigation is ongoing.

Oct. 31, Rope Ferry Road, 6:16 a.m.

Dick's House contacted Hanover Police to assist with an uncooperative 19-year-old male whom Safety and Security had picked up earlier that night. When the officer arrived, he could smell alcohol before even entering the room of the student, who was screaming and crying. The subject's words were slurred, and he was subsequently transported to DHMC, where he continued to be uncooperative.
