Grass Valley Police Blotter vol. XXIII

At 5:20 p.m., a caller reported a traffic problem. People were riding in a go-cart and many other people were watching.


At 7:44 p.m., a caller from West Main Street reported a man with a guitar was passed out in front of a barber shop.

[That won't generate many tips.]

At 4:45 a.m., Chico Police alerted local law enforcement to be on the lookout for suspects of a burglary at Circuit City in Chico this morning. The people were wearing "Friday the Thirteenth"-type masks and hooded sweatshirts. They pried a back door open and took a large amount of iPods and computer equipment. They left in a small, dark-colored sedan that either had loud exhaust or a bad muffler.

[Prediction: Cheap iPods this weekend at the flea market.]

At 4:29 p.m., a caller from the 400 block of Nimrod Street reported that a man wearing a Dale Earnhardt shirt was in a parking lot yelling at children.

[An obnoxious NASCAR fan. Why wasn't this on the front page?]

At 5:12 p.m., the man with the Dale Earnhardt shirt was arrested at Pioneer Park for being drunk in public.

[A drunken NASCAR fan. Why wasn't this on the front page?]

At 12:34 p.m., a woman called from the 10 block of Juan Way to report there were grapes all over her vehicle. She did not know if there was permanent damage and she requested an officer respond. There was no permanent damage.

[There is a joke in this somewhere. I know there is.]

At 9:37 p.m., a caller from Walsh Street at Mill Street reported a stop sign had been turned around. An officer fixed the sign.

[I like problems with easy resolutions.]

At 4:35 p.m., a caller from the 10000 block of North Bloomfield Road reported a man in a driveway was acting very strange and refusing to leave. He said he was being chased by gangs. Deputies were unable to locate the man.

[How about the gangs? I want an update on the gangs.]

At 10:13 p.m., a caller from a business on East Main Street said one of his customers was not leaving his bar. The customer was saying the bartender did not give the customer back his credit card, which the bartender said he didn't possess. The police made contact with the 25-year-old customer and booked him into the Nevada County jail for resisting arrest and being drunk in public.

[Drunk in public in a bar and lost his credit card. Insult/Injury ratio: High]

At 2:26 p.m., a caller from the 13000 block of Borrelli Road complained about a 13-year-old male who hit his 7-year-old sister. The caller said she had dropped the male juvenile off in Nevada City and told him to walk home. When the caller was advised about child endangerment, she hung up on the dispatcher.

[Aparantly you cannot just abandon minors on the side of the road.]

At 9:23 p.m., a caller from the 300 block of Adams Street reported unknown juveniles were leaving vulgar messages on his answering machine.

[I thought caller ID and blocking and all that was the end of crank calls. I guess not.]

At 8:02 a.m., Placer County law enforcement alerted Nevada County authorities to be on the lookout for an elderly lady who had been forced into a silver Subaru in Meadow Vista and was screaming for help. A caller from the Placer County Sheriff's Office called back to cancel the alert. The elderly woman did not want to go to the doctor.

[Our cats are the same way.]
