Note: This is a sample of recent incidents involving the Woodbury police. All subjects are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

• A K-9 from Woodbury was called at 3:25 p.m. June 7 to the 500 block of 11th St. in Newport to assist the Washington County Sheriff's Office with a search for a subject believed to be involved in a shooting in St. Paul. The subject also had a felony warrant out for his arrest. Upon hearing the K-9 was arriving, the man stated, "I give up, I have warrants," and climbed down from the rafters of the garage where he had been hiding. In assisting another agency, the K-9 was used as a deterrent only.

• An electrical box at the end of a driveway was smoking at 4:34 p.m. June 8, along Windjammer Drive. Black smoke was no closer than 30 feet to the nearest structure. Firefighters handled the 911 call.

At 9:26 p.m., a resident called 911 to report the man living in the bus had parked in front of her home and let the dog out to pee on the lawn. The complainant, a 45-year-old woman, talked to the man, who was in town for graduation, about the issue. She then told officers she didn't like that the man was moving his vehicle to different areas and sleeping in it.
