Man says juvenile planned robbery
A complaint about two males’ unusual behavior at about 8:30 p.m. Monday at CVS Pharmacy, at 3240 Willowcreek Road, led to both of them being arrested. A juvenile is charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a spring-loaded knife.
Jonathan Grove, 20, of Hobart, told police he drove the juvenile to Briar Ridge apartments in Hobart so the juvenile could trade a laptop for a number of Xanax. The juvenile reportedly had 51 pills with him when arrested.
Grove drove them to the pharmacy, and he told police the juvenile said he planned to rob the CVS. Grove is charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and public intoxication.
Drunken driver strikes office
A resident of Andover Apartments is accused of crashing a minivan into the complex’s office, at 351 W. Andover Drive.
At about 5:30 p.m. Monday, an employee told police she felt the room shake. Another staff member said a driver he recognized went off the road, struck the brick building, then parked in the lot for the 4700 block of Andover Drive.
The red minivan had bumper damage and debris from a run-over bush in its grill, police said.
Found in his apartment, Luis Aguirre-Perez, 27, was arrested for felony drunken driving with a prior conviction and misdemeanor leaving the scene of a crash. He reportedly fought against being arrested and having his blood drawn, which was done with a warrant, so he also was charged with misdemeanor resisting law enforcement.
