Man reports phone call: A Luden Avenue man reported Jan. 30 that an unidentified person called him and asked for a case number he supposedly had with the police department.

Man reports attempts: A River Park Boulevard man reported Jan. 29 that someone changed the address connected with his bank account to one in Florida and four times during the previous year unsuccessfully tried to charge purchases to his credit card account. The man said he was not out any money and he reported the address change to the bank and the issue was fixed. He said the problems may be related to a data breach of a company that he had made an online purchase from.
