Later that day, at 10:59 p.m., an intoxicated man entered a store on SE First Avenue and advised an employee that he wanted to turn himself in to police.

Later that day, at 3:15 p.m., police responded to a report of a suspicious person hiding under a parked railroad car on SE First Avenue. Wow, that’s a bold hide and seek move right there. Go big or go home. Officers transported the individual to a detoxing facility.
