Receiving stolen property: A 25-year-old and an 18-year-old Lakewood man were arrested after skateboarding in the street on Clifton Boulevard at around 8:30 p.m. Aug. 17. But skateboarding wasn’t really the main issue. 

Police found that the 25-year-old man matched the description of a man who’d stolen a credit card. He was arrested for receiving stolen property. 

The 18-year-old man was also charged with receiving stolen property and possession of marijuana. 

They were also both charged with riding a toy vehicle in the street.

Assault: A man suspected of beating up his girlfriend in the 2000 block of Lark Street faces several charges at around 8:45 p.m. Aug. 18 after officers arrived on the scene. Those charges include assault, assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct, trespassing and burglary. The man was taken to the Lakewood Jail.

Stop sign stolen… again: The stop sign at the corner of Delaware and Atkins avenues was reported stolen at around 9 a.m. Aug. 19. This was not the first time the stop sign at the intersection had been stolen.

Pool cue stolen: A pool stick was stolen from a unlocked, parked car in the 2200 block of Woodward Avenue at around 2:15 p.m. Aug. 20.

Bar fight: A man was charged with assault and disorderly conduct after punching another man the face — knocking out a tooth — at a 17600 block of Detroit Avenue at around 10:45 p.m. Aug. 20.

"Stop sign stolen… again: The stop sign at the corner of Delaware and Atkins avenues was reported stolen at around 9 a.m. Aug. 19. This was the first time the stop sign at the intersection had been stolen." -- wait, what? Please follow up.

Here's your follow up...Sloppy reporting, no proofreading and a general lack of pride in workmanship.

Thanks, guys. Looks like I forgot to include the word "not" in the sentence. Thanks for being so awesome and understanding.
