Police had their hands full last night, mostly for break-ins, although one man was arrested for calling emergency services far too many times.

RÚV reports that police visited the man in question, asking him to stop calling 112 without reason. Despite this, the calls continued. Described as being under the influence, the man was arrested and taken into custody.

In other crime news, a man was arrested for attacking a doorman at a club, and another young man was arrested for breaking into and stealing from at least two cars. He was also reportedly under the influence, and taken into custody.

Finally, three teenaged boys were caught breaking into a vehicle owned by the transportation service for the disabled, in east Reykjavík. While not arrested as such, they were taken into custody. One boy was later picked up by his parents, one was driven to his grandmother’s, and the third was taken to the behavioral treatment centre Stuðlar.
