---- — An employee of Rose Oil on Main Street called police to report that a crewman on a fishing vessel wrote a check for fuel from a closed bank account, Friday at 3:17 p.m.

Police contacted the vessel’s owner, who said a crew member told him that he would cover another trip on the boat out of his own bank account. He said the man lives in Maine. Police are investigating.

A Belleview Avenue resident called police at 5:15 p.m. on Friday and said that two unknown men had entered his neighbor’s home that morning.

Police went to the house and one of the men met them there. He said his parents had left the house to move to an assisted living center, and he was living there now.

Police chased a group of teens out of the West Parish School playground at 4:31 a.m. on Saturday.

One of the youths, police said, was intoxicated. They confiscated his car keys and said he could retrieve them at the police station the next morning.

Officers received a complaint about protesters on the sidewalk in front of the Post Office on Dale Avenue, Saturday at 9:50 a.m. Police found that the protesters were in public space and took no action.

They responded there again at 12:27 p.m. for a report of someone yelling at the protesters. That time, the group of protesters told police they were packing up.
