Warrant arrest: 11 a.m., 25 W. Main St. When a woman missed the date when she had been required to show up in court to answer for failing to operate a vehicle without a court-ordered interlock device, the court issued a warrant for her arrest, police caught up with her, busted her and released her with a shiny new court date.Burglary: 4:50 p.m., 5800 S 331st St. Somebody broke into a construction trailer but didn't appear to have stolen anything.

Pole pilfering: 9:55 p.m., 1148 E. Main St. Auburn City Imports was closed for the night, and a burglar tried to take advantage of that fact by stealing a metal pole but got caught, fessed up, and the business gave him a vigorous boot from the premises with a warning not to come back.
