Police blotter preview: Aug. 15 to Aug. 21
A caller reported a carpet cleaning van was dumping liquid in a sewer drain along the 2200 block of Forest Street at 3:57 p.m. Aug. 16.
The caller got the number of the company on the van and reported the number to police. The Hastings officer assigned to the case called the company, Little Red Carpet Cleaning, and eventually spoke to a manager. The manager said the employee in question didn't follow company practice when it comes to disposal.
