Police Blotter

October 31, 3:12 p.m.,

South Main Street

Police were called to a brook just outside of Hanover after a citizen reported seeing dead kittens in the water. Police found an unmarked travel carrier that had been filled with kittens and then dumped in the brook. Due to the extended time that the carrier had been in the water and the advanced nature of the decomposition, police do not know how many kittens were in the carrier.

1 Webster Avenue

Police responded to a call for assistance after Dartmouth Safety and Security found a 20-year-old male, a Dartmouth junior, vomiting in the front entryway of Kappa Kappa Kappa fraternity. The student was coherent but "displayed the previous evening's dinner on his shirt," Hanover Police Chief Nicholas Giaccone said. When questioned, the student told officers that he had "had some gin." He was walked to an ambulance and taken to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

Lebanon Street

A Hanover Police officer on patrol stopped an older Volvo station wagon after he witnessed it nearly strike another vehicle in front of Ben and Jerry's on Lebanon Street. When the station wagon's driver stepped out of the vehicle, he looked through the officer, "as if he weren't there," Giaccone reported. The man leaned on the door for support and became unsteady on his feet as soon as he stepped away from the vehicle. Upon closer inspection, the officer observed that the subject had extremely watery eyes. The subject later failed a field sobriety test, even though he told the officer that he had not had anything to drink. He was found to have a BAC of 0.25.

Crosby Street

Hanover Police were called in to assist Safety and Security personnel after a man and a woman were observed helping a clearly intoxicated friend walk down Crosby Street, near Dartmouth's heating plant. Upon arrival, officers found that all three were older than 21, but did not feel comfortable leaving one of the individuals, a 25-year-old-woman and a Dartmouth administrator, in the custody of the other two. The woman, who blew a BAC of 0.24, was taken to Grafton County Jail and placed into protective custody.

Police arrested an 18-year-old male based on a warrant originally filed in July 2007. At that time, police found an abandoned car containing beer cans crashed on Moose Mountain Road. The driver, who was 17 at the time, had been previously arrested on a separate offense in Lebanon, also in July 2007.
