Around 1:30 p.m., a resident came to police headquarters to report that he believed he was the victim of fraud. The resident showed the officer a notice he had received from a collection agency indicating an outstanding bill for more than $3,000.00 from a vender he had never used. The resident further explained that when he called the agency he was told he needed a police report in order for the collection agency to stop attempting to receive payment.
Friday May 2
At approximately 1:15 a.m. police were dispatched to the parking lot of the 7-Eleven located on South Sycamore Street for a report man sleeping in his vehicle. The responding officer observed a male who appeared to be sleeping in the driver’s seat of a car with the engine running. When the officer knocked on the windows of the car the man didn’t respond, police said. The officer was able to open the drive side door of the vehicle and detected an odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the driver who was identified as 44 year-old Daniel McNally of Fair Oaks Court in Newtown.
After an initial investigation the officer formed the opinion that McNally had consumed a sufficient amount of alcohol to a degree which rendered him incapable of operating his vehicle safely. McNally was taken into custody and transported to Saint Mary Medical Center where he refused to submit to a blood draw. McNally was then transported home and released pending charges of DUI.
