Grass Valley Police Blotter vol. XVI

At 11:06 p.m., a caller from the 300 block of Main Street reported the neighbor was playing drums.

[I think that is only a misdemeanor, as opposed to playing the accordion, which is a felony. And if you refer to it as a squeeze box, you may face a "special circumstances" sentencing.]

At 3:55 p.m., a caller from North School Street reported a woman was screaming for help. Police made contact with three juveniles who were on a trampoline.

[I am sure this only looks like a non-sequitur.]

At 4:49 a.m., a caller from the 1000 block of East Main Street reported a woman was under a vehicle, disturbing the peace. The caller was holding the woman until police arrived. Police arrested the 22-year-old woman for being drunk in public.

[Disturbing the peace from under a vehicle is a serious undertaking. As a kid, a guy on my street died stuck under a vehicle. Nobody heard him shout.]

At 3:55 a.m., a woman called from the 11000 block of Bedrock Drive to report people were on her roof and in her husband's shop. One was wearing a plaid shirt and the other was a small child wearing a bear suit. Deputies made contact. What the woman saw was possibly the result of her medication.

[On Halloween they would have believed her. Still, I wonder what formed that particular image for her.]

At 6:12 a.m., a caller from the 13000 block of Torrey Pines Drive reported a golf cart was stolen and was found in the water. Security guards chased the thieves but were unable to apprehend them. The caller did not want to pursue charges.

[Lesson here: Lock up your golf cart.]

At 7:07 a.m., a woman called from the 12000 block of Loma Rica Drive to report she was locked inside a gate. She and her husband were at a wedding reception at the property next door, and the gates were locked before they could exit the property. She had no idea who to call. She said she would try to locate an owner or a caretaker.

[At 7am? I have to guess that they were passed out. Hell of a reception though!]

At 4:50 p.m., a caller from the 11000 block of Thorncroft Way reported a fire was started by three juvenile boys who threw an incendiary object into bushes to start the blaze. A deputy determined the fire was actually started by a contractor. The caller was very intoxicated and confrontational.

[I love the character "The Drunk & Belligerent Good Samaritan."]

At 9:19 p.m., a caller from Hughes Road reported two men wearing jeans and no shirts went behind a convenience store and were acting suspiciously.

[As we have read in the past here, shirtlessness itself is grounds for suspicion!]

At 10:25 p.m., a caller from Nevada City Highway reported three juveniles walking east on Nevada City Highway may have been in a fight with a group in a small, dark-colored vehicle. Police made contact with a large group that was playing a game; group members were the same people behind the convenience store.

[My only question is how did two shirtless men become a large group? Well, that and what game were they playing?]

At 1:36 p.m., a man called from the 110000 block of Lower Circle Drive to report he was assaulted at his residence during his garage sale. A buyer who was not happy with his purchase punched the caller in the face. Extra patrol was assigned to the area.

[In case this was the beginning of an outbreak of garage sale beatings?]

At 8:15 p.m., a woman called from the 11000 block of Rachel Lane and reported her boyfriend had been very depressed and making comments that he wanted to kill himself and burn the house down if she leaves him. The woman called back again, wanting the sheriff's office to check on the welfare of her parrot, because the man had threatened the parrot's life, as well.


At 9:10 p.m., a man called from the 20000 block of Pleasant Valley Road to report a man who was running from the sheriff's office came into his house, said not to call the police, then went into his garage. Deputies made contact and there was no person in the residence. The caller had been drinking and he did not remember calling.

[Drink! Without it this blog would not exist!]
