Identity crisis

8:23 p.m. — 100 block of Cumberland Avenue

Suspicious incident. A 32-year-old Daytona Beach man called police to claim someone had stolen his identity and used it to make car insurance payments. However, when showing the officer the list of charges on his insurance billing history form, the man could not determine which charges were his and which were fraudulent.

He later decided he was sure of at least two payments. The rest, he said he didn't know where even though his car insurance company. He kept telling the officer he gave his driver's license and debit card to his ex-girlfriend before he went to jail in January, and that he suspected she gave his debit card to another man while he was behind bars. 

The man accused his ex's lover of framing him for a July traffic crash, though the officer couldn't find any information the crash happened. Due to a lack of information, the officer wasn't able to determine if a crime was actually committed. The man told the officer he would contact him again at a later date.

Foul language

7:40 p.m. — first block of Lakewood Park

Information. A verbal altercation occurred between two neighbors after one exited her home (let's call her Ann) and demanded her neighbor go inside his house because she was not a fan of his "potty mouth." Ann's neighbor was on the phone at the time and in response to her request, he told her — in so many words — to perform oral sex on him and other curses. 

The neighbor told police this wasn't the first argument between them. 

Police spoke to Ann, who addressed them in an aggressive manner, according to a police report. Shee demanded a report be made on her neighbor for disturbing the peace. Officers told her this would not be done since there was no evidence to support her claim. She then became more argumentative and spoke over the officers present.

Eventually, Ann "reluctantly" gave police her identification, telling them her neighbor made her and her cat scared to step out of the house. Both individuals were provided with case numbers.
