Dormont police blotter, Nov. 23 to Nov. 30.

No major damage was reported after a water leak sent local emergency crews to Dormont Village Shops on Nov. 26.

Dormont police officers and the Dormont Volunteer Fire Department responded to the shopping center on West Liberty Avenue just after 7 a.m.

Crews determined that the water was coming from a men’s bathroom on the second floor of the building. Water was leaking into more than one of the businesses on the first floor, said Dormont police Sgt. James Burke, although he did not know how many businesses were affected.

Burke said no major damage was reported, and the situation was under control within half an hour.
