Grass Valley Police Blotter vol. XXVI

At 12:29 p.m., a caller from the 100 block of King Court reported coming home and finding a tree service cutting down the caller's trees.

[Well, I'm pretty sure at least you don't have to pay them at that point....]

At 8:22 p.m., a caller from the 14000 block of Hydraulic Ridge Close reported the theft of a leaf blower and ladder from her front porch. At 8:34 p.m., the caller notified deputies that the thief had returned the items.

[A considerate thief! Or the caller forgot she put them in the garage, which seems more likely.]

At 11:09 p.m., a caller from Highway 20 reported someone was throwing pumpkins off the overpass.

[Well, it is the season....]

At 4:26 p.m., a caller from the 500 block of Idaho-Maryland Road reported two loose dogs - a pit bull and a boxer - had chased a cat and scratched the caller's vehicle. Animal Control was notified.

[It is the little details that people put in that make for much of the humor. Two dogs on the loose, there is the reason for the call. Scratching the caller's car was just icing on the cake.]

At 9:33 a.m., a woman called from a park on the 18000 block of Penn Valley Drive reported a pit bull attacked her German shepherd. The woman said she pepper sprayed the pit bull and its owner. The woman was charged with assault. A report was forwarded to Animal Control and the District Attorney.

[Pepper sprayed the pit bull AND the owner? That did not seem to help the situation.]

At 10:58 a.m., a caller from the 10000 block of Keenan Way reported a 17-year-old boy ran away, and that he runs away frequently. The caller said the boy's 18-year-old girlfriend contributed to his behavior. The juvenile was located by Roseville police.

[At some point you have to sit down and discuss the definition of "running away."]

At 2:53 p.m., a man called from the 10000 block of Berggren Lane to report people came into his yard and onto his deck and were mocking his wife. When his wife threatened to let the dog out of the house, the people left.

[And here I am, mocking her again. Are roving bands of mockers an issue in Nevada County?]

At 9:14 p.m., a caller from the 18000 block of Hummingbird Drive reported a man was acting strange. He had been threatening to kill people and was carrying a large knife.

[Now, see, here is something that deserves a police report. Of course, we don't even get to find out if the police could find the man or not.]

At 12:15 p.m., a caller from the 200 block of Sutton Way reported two men in their 20s going door to door selling magazine subscriptions, and both gave the name of Mike. Police were unable to locate the men.

[You haven't heard of "Mike & Mike Magazine Sales?" Me either.]

At 4:33 p.m., a caller from a business on the 700 block of East Main Street reported being hit with golf balls from a nearby apartment complex. Police contacted with three people who apologized to the business owner.

[I have no idea why the police had to get involved and coerce an apology out of these people. And no drunk in public arrest either! These guys... and you know they were guys... were hitting golf balls on Main Street, sober, and in the middle of the afternoon.]

At 7:44 p.m., police arrested a 29-year-old man who was in the police station lobby waiting to talk to an officer. There was a warrant for the man's arrest.

[It is nice when these come with free delivery.]

At 7:58 p.m., a caller from the 10000 block of Lode Line Way reported three men were driving around town in a van going door to door asking for money. A deputy responded and found the men were selling magazines.

[But what was the name of the third man? Mike?]

At 8:20 p.m., a caller reported two men were walking in and out of traffic on Nevada City Highway. Police contact with the men and they headed home.

[Fun times! Let's go walk in and out of traffic! Nah, the police told us to knock that off last week.]

At 12:43 a.m., a 24-year-old man turned himself in on a local warrant at the police station. He was arrested.

[Well, at least he was probably ready for the result.]

At 7:39 a.m., a caller reported finding bones with fabric on them on Relief Hill Road. Deputies determined the bones were from a cow, and the material on them was cowhide.

[Cow hide. That "fabric" on the outside of cows.]

At 3:57 p.m., a caller from the 300 block of Clay Street reported a blue Toyota Tacoma pickup was parked on the side of the street facing the wrong way. It was occupied by two men, possibly selling meat. Police made contact and advised the men to leave city limits.

[Would you buy meat from guys selling it out of the back of their pickup truck, even if it was correctly parked?]
