Dogs in traffic: Loft Way, 1700 block, Silver Spring, Sept. 13.

The owner arrived in time to retrieve the dogs and receive two $100 citations for allowing the dogs to wander.

Horses leap a low spot: Medd Ave., 3500 block, Damascus, Sept. 10. Two horses were detained after being found wandering on an adjacent property.
