Later that evening I turned in early, only to be awakened at around 9:30 by banging on the front door. I dressed and made my way to a window in time to see a police cruiser driving away. I thought; WTF? and went back to bed.
The next day, Sgt. Mazzotta left me a voice mail saying he was at my house at 6:15 and again at 9:30, both times having "negative results" in speaking with me. OK, so that was him at 9:30, but at 6:15, I was home; I can't believe I wouldn't have heard him, if he had knocked.
Now I'm curious. I went to the neighbor's house and asked him about it. He said the officer talked to him, then went to another neighbor's house and talked to him. Then, he left. I was told he did NOT go to my door. (I also talked to the other neighbor, who didn't observe the officer's activity.)
Clearly, Sgt. Mazzotta lied about being at my house at 6:15. It wasn't a misstatement; one doesn't get confused over such things; it was a lie.
In mid-March, it is pitch dark long before 9:30. Every light in the house was off. Why would a sergeant, allegedly investigating a barking dog complaint, approach a totally dark house and bang on the door? Why would he lie about being at my house at 6:15? It make no sense to bang on the door of a dark house at night, and it makes no sense to lie about being there, earlier!
