Sheriff's office responds to act of criminal mischief

The Platte County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday afternoon responded to Boys Town Duncan Day School in reference to an act of criminal mischief.

A deputy responded at approximately 2 p.m. to the 500 block of Sixth Street in Duncan after receiving a report of a frustrated child breaking a classroom window, according to Sheriff Ed Wemhoff.

According to the report, it’s unclear if a citation was levied against the juvenile, however, the deputy is following up with the child’s parent(s), Wemhoff added.

The estimated damage is $500.

Suspected 'burglary' culprit likely an animal 

When a Platte County Sheriff’s office deputy responded to a suspected burglary Thursday evening, he or she made the discovery that the suspect in all likelihood isn’t human.

The office responded at 7:35 p.m. to the 6000 block of 55th Street in College View in regard to a suspected burglary. Upon arrival, the deputy noticed the door of a trailer ajar and some damage to the inside of the residence.

An investigation led to the discovery of some blood and hair that appeared animal in nature on a blanket inside of the trailer, leading the deputy to believe that it wasn’t a person who gained access into the home, according to Sheriff Ed Wemhoff.

No estimated damage was reported.
