Grass Valley Police Blotter vol. XVII

At 3:26 p.m., a caller from the 500 block of Factory Street reported a person in front of the house was playing political messages on a loud speaker, drowning out neighborhood televisions and radios.

[Because, of course, that is the way to get people to come to your political point of view, drown out their televisions and radios. I think this is traditionally done via paid political ads, but maybe this is some sort of grass roots campaign.]

At 5:51 p.m., a woman reported she was assaulted by her neighbor when she tried to talk about them screaming at her daughter.

[More fun in neighbor relations. I feel sorry for the daughter.]

At 8:47 a.m., a man called from the 400 block of South Auburn Street to report vandalism to a mailbox in the past few weeks by juveniles with a baseball bat. The juveniles were hanging out by the mailbox again and he asked them to leave, but they didn't.

[You're just not saying it right. Again, with feeling, "Hey! You kids get off my lawn!"

At 3:20 p.m., a caller from the 11000 block of Ridge Road reported he was threatened by a man while he was trying to pick up his son at high school. The man was swinging a hammer at him in the parking lot, saying he owed him $5,000. The caller was not sure of the man's name. Police took a report.

[Crazy man threatening people in the school parking lot? Take a report.]

At 4:15 p.m., a man called from the 14000 block of Highway 174 to report finding a syringe in his driveway. He placed it under a blue bucket on his way out of the house and requested that the sheriff's office retrieve it for destruction.

[Too busy to deal with the syringe himself, but time enough to call the sheriff's department in the car.]

At 10:50 a.m., a caller from the Grass Valley area reported eight boys were cutting school. They were in a white Jeep, Toyota truck and a red Camero.

[The patriot in me hopes that the truck was blue.]

At 1:06 p.m., police arrested a 36-year-old man on Brooks Road for possession of a hypodermic needle/syringe.

[And a blue bucket perhaps?]

At 3:45 p.m., a caller from the 14000 block of Echo Ridge Drive reported the phone lines at his residence were cut.

[And we know damaging telephone equipment is a crime! Still, I think a call to the phone company would get better results in the long term.]

At 6:09 p.m., a woman called from a fast food restaurant/gas station on the 16000 block of Penn Valley Drive to report the manager threw a piece of ice at her eye. The caller wanted to file a report for assault. Deputies did not take a report. No crime was committed.

[I would like to know what really happened here. No doubt an irate customer issue.]

At 6:18 p.m., a woman called from the 13000 block of Golden Star Road to report her son found a syringe in their front yard. A deputy gave the syringe to hospital staff for disposal.

[The IV drug-using population is out in force this week!]

At 9:39 a.m., a woman called to file a report of assault. She said she was assaulted by the manager of a business on the 16000 block of Penn Valley Drive yesterday when the manager threw a piece of ice at her. A deputy made contact with the woman and advised her of the civil court process.

[Oh good, she is still mad and now she might sue.]

A 10:28 p.m. caller from Ragan Way reported loud music behind their house. The caller asked to be anonymous because the subject playing the music has anger issues.

[I always picture the police saying, "Yeah, your neighbor, the guy over there in the blue house, he says you're being too loud."]

At 9 p.m., a person reported a man in a white Ford Mustang convertible who was standing up naked while the car traveled south on South Auburn Street. A dispatcher advised patrol.

[Well, you have to give the guy credit for having balls... since they are right out there for anybody to verify.]

At 3:31 p.m., a woman from the 16000 block of Marion Way reported a 3-foot-long iguana sitting in a tree in her backyard. Nevada County Animal Control was unable to respond, and she lost sight of the reptile.

[Jubjub breaks free, runs amok in Grass Valley.]

At 6:59 a.m., a man from the 300 block of Long Street reported another man came into his house and yelled at him to get out. The caller followed this person down the street and watched him attempt to disturb other residences, than ran around a nearby convenience store carrying a beer. Police advised the man not to return or face charges of trespassing.

[And as good a reason as any to keep your front door locked: It keeps crazy people from wandering in off the street.]
