I don't remember individuals being identified by name in the Police Log before. What makes Robert Marshall Dehaven special?
Jessica Mullins (Editor) January 09, 2013 at 10:57 PM
People are identified in the blotter once in a while. We could print every name in the log, but usually make a call based on the severity (or in this case - the frequency) of a crime and if it's relevant information for the community. Keep in mind that arrests don't indicate convictions. I forgot to put that at the top of the article this week - I usually do if the blotter includes a name. Most blotters on other Patch sites include all the names from the log.

Thank you, Jessica, for not including names on the log as often as most other Patch sites.
