Marshfield Police Blotter: Nov. 6-12, 2018
Be careful what you leave behind
At 10:32 a.m., a Marshfield landlord called police after cleaning out an apartment he owns. He reported finding green plant material and a glass smoking device. There was also a USPS package that he thought may contain drug related items. All items were turned over to police. Police then contacted the previous tenant, a 38-year-old Marshfield man, who admitted the items were his. He was cited for possession.
Packer ticket scam
At 5:32 p.m., a 57-year-old Marshfield man reported that he had found four Green Bay Packer tickets for sale on Craigslist. He contacted the seller and made arrangements for payment. The Marshfield man was instructed to purchase two $200 EBay gift cards and send the gift card information to the seller. In return, the tickets would be mailed to the Marshfield man. He never received the tickets and all attempts to contact the seller have gone unanswered. PayPal will not provide a refund, and he was advised to contact EBay for a refund.
Romantic gesture taken away
At 12:23 p.m., a 29-year-old Marshfield woman reported the theft of a package from in front of her apartment door.

A neighbor had seen someone leaving the apartment building shortly after the package was stamped as delivered. It is uncertain if that person took the package.
Money taken from bank account
