The following information was supplied by the Monroe Police Department. No arrested person is guilty until so judged in a court of law.
Truck vs. House
A Pastors Walk woman told police Saturday that her four-year-old great grandson had been playing with her son's Ford pick up truck at around 12:44 p.m. and somehow released the parking brake. The truck rolled 62 feet down a small decline, striking concrete steps and the house (by the front door), according to the report.
Police said there was substantial damage to the truck's rear tailgate bumper area and that the residence and the concrete steps also had damage. There was no estimate for the cost of repairs.
Violation of a Restraining Order
Shelton officers arrested a man on Saginaw Trail on a Monroe warrant Friday night, charging him with criminal violation of a restraining order.
Monroe police said that Jeffrey Honcharik, 54, whose last known address was Reiner Drive in Trumbull, kept calling a 27-year-old Monroe woman and leaving numerous voice mails despite a restraining order. He was released on $5,000 bond for a May 21 court date.
Theft of Chairs, Gutters
Two plastic lawn chairs and two 20-foot-long aluminum gutters were reported stolen Saturday from the yard of a Pachaug Trail residence.
The chairs are valued at $50 each and the gutters at $20 a piece, police said, adding the items were lying on the grass near the house when they were taken. Neighbors may have seen the thieves and police are investigating.
Struck by a Bottle
A 38-year-old Applegate Lane woman was walking her dog along Garter Road at around 3 p.m. Friday when a school bus passed and a passenger threw a Powerade bottle at her, according to a police complaint.
