The caller said the dog had her voicebox removed and the “barking” does not make any more sound. When an officer checked on the dog, it appeared to be healthy.

Someone reported a bluish-black Chevy pickup truck on the road that allegedly had two inebriated people in it.

A caller reported a stream of water coming from a property across from a gas station. He said it looked like a hole in the ground pouring out water. When it was checked, it turned out to be a broken sprinkler head.
