10000 block of Candleberry St.

On 08/20/2022, residents were home, upstairs in their bedroom, when they heard a loud bang coming from downstairs. Frightened, they went downstairs to investigate and observed a drone plugged into the wall on the floor near the kitchen area was on fire. They immediately ran out of the residence and to the neighbor’s house for help. Minimal fire damage to the wall, mostly smoke damage to the home. Fire Rescue Chief was on the scene and advised the fire was not suspicious and that the Fire Investigator would not be responding.


NW 96th Way

On 08/19/2022, deputies received a report about a fight between neighboring dogs. Neighbors share a fence line in the backyard of their properties. It is an aluminum-style fence with large gaps a dog can stick their muzzle through. The dogs got into a fight through the fence, resulting in the dog receiving a laceration that needed to be stitched closed. This is the third such incident. Both dog owners advised they would better secure the fence line to prevent the dogs from being able to stick their muzzles through.
