In the canton of St. Gallen, the police had to move out on Monday because of various incidents. (icon picture)
Instead of being contemplative and calm, the canton of St. Gallen was really turbulent on St. Stephen’s Day: According to the St. Gallen canton police, bizarre and sometimes “very unpleasant” cases kept the emergency services on their toes.
A man (35) reported that he suspected a person on his sofa who was threatening to suffocate. The deployed police patrol met a mentally disturbed man in the apartment. A doctor ordered a protective accommodation in a specialist clinic.
Since the smell of marijuana was noticed in the apartment, the public prosecutor’s office of the canton of St. Gallen ordered a house search. Around 50 marijuana plants, a complete indoor facility with various accessories and over 2000 francs were seized. As the cantonal police continue to write, further criminal investigations are now being carried out.
Woman tried to grab the police officer’s service weapon
On the same evening, the cantonal police had to move out because of a woman (21) who allegedly threatened and insulted another woman with a “fake Instagram account”.
When the emergency services arrived at the 21-year-old’s apartment, she reacted hysterically. She started screaming and announced that under no circumstances would she go with the police. She resisted violently, thrashing about with her hands and feet. But that’s not all: she also tried several times to steal the police officer’s service weapon.
The various family members who actively intervened in the police action were also unable to prevent an arrest. The woman was arrested nonetheless.
New dog sparks an argument – and then police action
A police patrol also had to go to Uznach. Officers were called that evening to a family who had been arguing over a dog the 21-year-old son got for Christmas.
Accordingly, the mother would not have wanted to accept a dog in her apartment, which led to a loud argument with the son. As the police continue to write, the situation would have calmed down in the end because the son found shelter with the new four-legged friend with a colleague.
It was not quiet in Buchs on St. Stephen’s Day either: the end of a relationship between a man (19) and a woman (26) triggered a violent argument that required the use of several police patrols. The 26-year-old was so upset about the relationship that ended on St. Stephen’s Day that people who had noticed only saw the police as a solution. The woman was then handed over into the care of people close to her.
Rein action at the late hour causes trouble with new neighbors
The police also had to move out in Rapperswil-Jona. A woman (62) kept the emergency services on their toes because she had repeatedly called a hospital to inquire about the whereabouts of several relatives who had died a long time ago. In a long conversation, the woman was told that the deceased had found their last resting place, so that she calmed down again.
The police were also called to a bizarre operation in Mels. As the media release shows, a man (46) had chosen St. Stephen’s Day as the date to move into his new apartment – much to the annoyance of his new neighbors. They were bothered by the noise at 10:08 p.m. and called the police. This then declared the rein action to be over at the late hour. The 46-year-old showed understanding and ended his work in favor of a good future neighborly relationship.
In none of the cases were criminal measures requested by the persons involved. If necessary, the cantonal police in St. Gallen will prepare reports for the social authorities. (dzc)
