Hannibal, MO (AP) - Peace disturbance calls are not uncommon in most communities. However, Hannibal police twice responded to peace disturbance calls whose basis was not loud music or arguing people, but an unpleasant odor.

The call initially came from Hannibal City Hall.

“A Hannibal officer was called to 320 Broadway in reference to peace disturbance. The officer was contacted by several employees who complained of a subject emitting an odor that was deemed to be significantly noxious and offensive,” said Lt. John Zerbonia of the Police Department.

“We don’t typically run people out of city hall, but there were so many complaints it qualified as a peace disturbance,” said a member of the city hall staff, who spoke on the condition they not be identified. “It was a strange situation.”

According to Hannibal Municipal ordinance 16-162, subjects can be cited for peace disturbance because of a “noxious and offensive” odor.

The individual, whose identity was not revealed by authorities, was no stranger to city hall.

“He’s been here on numerous occasions,” said the city staffer. “He did not appear to be conducting any business at city hall. He was just sitting.”
According to Zerbonia, the “subject was asked (by the officer) to leave the premises and attend to the issue.”

While the individual left city hall, the story doesn’t end there. At 10:26 a.m., police received another peace disturbance call, this time from 113 N. Third St., according to police records.

“After leaving 320 Broadway the subject entered a neighboring business and was asked to leave there as well, due to the offensive odor,” said Zerbonia.

At the urging of the HPD officer, the individual left the business. No one was arrested or cited, according to Zerbonia.
