Grass Valley Police Blotter vol. XIII

At 1:38 p.m., a man called from the 1000 block of East Main Street to report he received a couple of forged checks for a vehicle he is selling on the Internet.

[Did anybody ask if he was trying to sell the same vehicle to multiple people. It sounds like there is a little fraud ecosystem developing there.]

At 1:40 a.m., a woman called from the 200 block of Washington Street to report someone was in her basement. She could hear pots and pans being thrown around and her dogs were barking. Police arrived and found a dog in the basement. The dog was removed.

[Which brings us back to how the dog got in the basement in the first place.]

At 4:22 a.m., a woman called from the 200 block of Sutton Way to report she heard grunts coming from the bushes or possibly another apartment or a nearby shopping complex.

[She was quite certain that they were grunts.]

At 9:37 a.m., a caller from the 20000 block of Maben Road reported workers at a property have been having problems with a person living there. The caller said the person was throwing things at his workers and smashing plates against his head. He also broke glass against his face and made threats to kill the workers on site.

[I would take seriously threats from a guy breaking things on his head.]

At 1:12 p.m., a caller from Highway 20 reported a man was running around in a picnic area and screaming. Deputies were unable to locate the man.

[People just get tired of being annoying and go home if the police do not show up right away.]

At 9:36 p.m., someone called 911 from the 12000 block of Dobbins Drive, then hung up. A dispatcher called back and a man said he had been punched in the face by his wife. Deputies made contact and the man said he lied on the phone and he really meant to call 411. The man did not have injuries. A woman advised the incident did not happen and the man was very drunk.

[He must be a reader of the Police Blotter. Where else would he get the impetus to say "my wife punched me in the face" rather than "sorry, wrong number" when he mis-dialed 911? So many things seem funny when you are drunk.]

At 2:33 p.m., a caller from Main Street reported a verbal peace disturbance was stemming from one neighbor's dog digging in another neighbor's marijuana garden.

[I can see this is just not going to end with an admonishment by the officer.]

At 2:18 p.m., a caller asked for extra patrols on the 100 block of Carpenter Street because of problems with a man who had looked at another man's wife.

[That must have been some look!]

At 1:37 a.m., a caller reported a man and woman fighting in the back seat of a vehicle outside a fast-food restaurant on Nevada City Highway.

[That is not what the back seat if for people! Or is this some attempt to force the magic of "make up sex?"]

At 1:43 a.m., a caller from a business on South Auburn Street reported finding a man's wallet.

At 4:54 a.m., a caller from Packard Street reported a man lying in the road. Police arrested a 25-year-old man on suspicion of public drunkenness. He was the man who had left his wallet at the business earlier.

[Both he and his wallet were found lying around town.]

At 8:06 p.m., a tow company reported they were unable to assist a stranded motorist because the tow truck got stuck. A deputy located the motorist on Burlington Ridge Road and gave the person a ride to a relative's house.

[I just have a soft spot for "the tow truck broke down" stories.]

At 5:19 p.m., a caller from the 400 block of Nimrod Street reported people were drinking in Pioneer Park and throwing a homemade spear into a cedar tree.

[Again, alcohol turns so many things into entertainment.]

At 10:22 a.m., a caller reported people cleaning a tractor engine by a sewer drain. An officer found there was no environmental hazard because no soap was used.

[Any grime, grease, or oil that might have been washed off was fine, so long as there was no soap involved!]
