A woman reported a possible Facebook scam to Dickinson police on Wednesday evening. The woman reported there was man who was representing himself on Facebook as a U.S. Army soldier in Afghanistan. She said he sent her a picture showing that he had been wounded and that he needed money to get back to the United States because the Army wouldn't send him back. There was no financial loss.

• A man reported that his ex-girlfriend was acting disorderly and asked that Dickinson police remove her from the 900 block of Fifth Avenue West on Tuesday. The man didn't have a protection order in place and the woman left without incident.

• A man reported to police Wednesday morning that someone had stolen $1,700 worth of items from a company vehicle on the 800 block of Shinagle Drive.
