Potty trespassing

Two men were issued no trespass citations on July 17 at Overlook Park on Essex Road after they were allegedly found together in a Port-A-Potty, according to police reports. The identities of the men were not released.

Two weeks ago, two men were cited for lewd conduct at the park.

Animal cruelty

On July 16, police were called to the parking lot of Once Upon A Child regarding a dog that had been locked in a car for more than an hour with the windows rolled up, according to police reports. The dog’s owner was subsequently “referred to the Williston Reparative Board for animal cruelty,” according to the report.

Fraud

A scam originating in Africa has found its way to Williston, according to police. Earlier this month, a Vermont woman was sent a check for $3,300 by a “mystery shopper” and was instructed to deposit the money in her bank account, keep a specified amount, and “return the rest by Moneygram,” according to police reports. The woman did this three times and was later informed by her bank that the checks were “no good,” according to the report.
