Dumpster Divers Block Poplar Street

Portsmouth Police Officers responded to a report of an unusual traffic obstruction on Poplar Street at 7:19 am.

A caller said several people were digging through a dumpster and had scattered clothes all over the road to the point where motorists could not get past them. 

When officers arrived at the scene, they learned the resident of a home in the 1700 block was giving away clothes and that the dumpster did not match up to city ordinance requiring a dumpster in the road to have reflective markings. 

Officers advised all involved. 

Threats at the Homeless Shelter

A woman called officers to the Homeless Shelter at the old Armory on 17th Street at 7:30 am. She claimed another person staying at the shelter had threatened her.

When police investigated, they learned that there was a verbal disagreement between the two parties and that no direct threats were made. 

The woman said she would get her things together and leave the shelter. When officers left her, she was waiting for a ride.
