Crime Log

Fayetteville Police Department officers arrested 47 people and received 799 calls for service between Nov. 22-28, according to the FPD weekly summary report.

Officers made 12 felony arrests and 35 misdemeanor arrests. Officers arrested 13 people on charges of public intoxication, five people on DUI charges and six people on warrants.

Of the 12 felony arrests, four people were arrested on charges of possessing drug paraphernalia, three people were arrested on charges of possessing methamphetamines and two people were arrested on charges of possession with purpose to deal.

Police received one report of rape, and there were no other violent crimes reported between Nov. 22-28. So far this year, there have been three reports of homicide, 63 reports of rape, 54 reports of robbery and 280 reports of aggravated assault.

There were 47 reports of property crime. There were five reports of burglary, 38 reports of larceny and theft, four reports of vehicle theft and no reports of arson.

Some of the other crimes included in the weekly summary report are assault and battery, forgery, kidnapping, liquor laws, pornography and prositution, public intoxication and vandalism. FPD received 78 total reports of other crime. Compared to the same week last year, there were 107 fewer reports of other crime.

There were 17 reports of assault and battery, three reports of forgery, three reports of disorderly conduct, eight narcotic reports, eight DUIs, six reports of public intoxication, two reports of stolen property, eight reports of vandalism and three weapons violations.

The weekly summary report also includes the number of traffic accidents during the week. There were 38 accidents, and none of them were fatal. Four accidents resulted in injury and 34 were property accidents.

Police gave 408 citations between Nov. 22-28. There were 31 criminal citations, 145 traffic citations, one juvenile citation and 231 warnings.

Calls of service are organized by priority one, two or three, with three being the lowest priority, FPD Sgt. Anthony Murphy said in an email. Some examples of a priority one call are a burglary in progress or an injury accident.

The priority system is how FPD triage their calls when there are not enough officers on the street to answer every call coming in at that time, Murphy said.

As of Nov. 2019, there have been 44,565 calls to FPD. The average police response time between Nov. 22-28 was 5 minutes, 44 seconds, which is approximately 20 seconds slower compared to the same week in 2018.
