Grass Valley Police Blotter vol. XXII

At 8:18 p.m., a caller from Highway 49 reported someone in a white Ford Explorer with a Raider Nation emblem on the back window was shooting paint balls, last seen at Peterson's Corner.

[It can't be O.J., he'd have a Bills emblem.]

At 2:33 p.m., a caller from the 100 block of West Berryhill Drive reported that a person in dark clothing with a large backpack was hiding in the bushes at the rear corner of the building. When the suspicious person came out of the bushes toward a van, he was asked if he was delivering the newspaper before the frightened driver drove away. Police made contact with the newspaper carrier.

[A tense moment with the newspaper guy. At least they don't come to your door to collect their money any more.]

At 7:49 p.m., a caller from the 100 block of Dorsey Drive reported being approached while in a car by a suspicious man in pajama pants.

[An interesting mental image. I picture the pajama pants to be paisley, for no good reason.]

At 11:39 p.m., two 20- year-old men were arrested for disturbing the peace during a brawl at a business on the 100 block of Neal Street.

[Disturbing the peace during a brawl is quite a feat! Hey, keep it down, we're trying to brawl here!]

At 6:14 a.m., a caller from the 100 block of South Auburn Street reported there was someone sleeping in the closet. Police made contact with a 55-year-old man and arrested him for being drunk in public.

[Was he, technically, in public when in the closet? If the police asked him to come out, was that entrapment?]

At 10:47 a.m., a caller reported a public bus headed toward Brunswick Road had its flashing "Call 911" sign on. Police investigated, and it was a false alarm.

[Whoops, I meant to put up "Downtown."]

At 7:44 p.m., a woman called from the 800 block of Old Tunnel Road to report a man tried to taze her and three others. A second caller said the woman threatened him with a gun, but he did not see the gun. Police stood by while the man gathered his things and was advised not to return to the apartment.

[Was the tazer amongst his things?]

At 11:27 p.m., a man called from the 800 block of Annex Avenue to report he was being robbed by people who "looked like hippies." Police made contact with a 47-year-old woman and a 46-year-old man in a white Honda. The man was arrested for drunken driving, being under the influence of a controlled substance and violation of probation.

[I am confused. Were the people arrested the hippies or the people who called the police?]

At 3:10 a.m., a woman reported two men stole her car. Police made contact with the woman and arrested her for possession of a controlled substance and a Placer County Warrant. The car was located, unoccupied, behind a grocery store on Nevada City Highway.

[Good news, we found your car. Bad news, you have a warrant, you're going to jail.]

At 8:34 p.m., a woman called from the 15000 block of Goldcone Drive to report finding nine suspicious-looking holes dug on her property, each approximately three to four feet deep and two feet across.

[Police were on the lookout for somebody with a backhoe and a grudge.]

At 10:25 a.m., a caller from the 100 block of South Church Street reported a new tenant had a prescription for marijuana but other tenants were smoking something very strong and making the building stink.

[And what action does the caller expect of the police? A can of Airwick?]
