Grass Valley Police Blotter vol. XXXVI

At 5:52 a.m., a woman from the 16500 block of Countrywood Lane reported her live-in boyfriend kicked her out of bed in an argument about the covers. Responding deputies could not find the boyfriend, who had left for the evening.

[There has to be a joke in here somewhere. All the pieces require it.]

At 4:52 p.m., a caller from the 100 block of Neal Street reported 33 juveniles were loitering in a grocery store parking lot. Police made contact.

[If the number of people is under 10, the count is always approximate (e.g. 4-5), but suddenly we get a large number and the count becomes exact!]

At 6:46 a.m., a woman called to report a woman broke into her garage and took all of the meat from her freezer. She said the woman had been passed out in her vehicle in the driveway without the caller's permission. Deputies arrested a 41-year-old woman for burglary.

[Meat theft? Is that what gets somebody going after passing out?]

At 10:25 a.m., a caller from the 14000 block of Manion Canyon Road reported a garage was broken into and a compressor was stolen. A deputy took a report.

[Well, we know one recently passed out woman who won't be a suspect.]

At 3:04 p.m., a caller from Red Dog Road reported target shooting in the area with kids and people on quads. The caller felt the shooting was unsafe.

[Stupidity is so rarely against the law however.]

At 4:12 p.m., a caller from Bush Road reported shooting at a property two houses down. Another caller also reported the shooting. Deputies made contact with all neighbors and recommended a temporary restraining order.

[A restraining order? You can do that for mere annoyances? Okay, potentially deadly annoyances.]

At 8:32 p.m., a caller reported a person had not shown up for work or called in. Deputies checked on the person on the 17000 block of Anona Court. The person overslept and would be in to work shortly.

[Hey, it was New Years Day. And who calls the police because an employee is late?]

At 11:21 p.m., a caller from North School Street reported two people lying on the sidewalk. Police made contact and all was OK. The people lived on the 200 block of Church Street and were stargazing and drinking wine.

[Stargazing on the sidewalk?]

At 4:15 p.m., a caller from Highway 49 at Oakhurst Drive reported a man was running in and out of traffic. Police gave the man a ride to his home on Maben Road.

[An interesting alternative to calling a cab I guess.]

At 5:37 p.m., a caller from Banner Quaker Hill Road reported two people in dark clothing were throwing things, possibly firecrackers, into the roadway.

[But neither of them were, themselves, jumping in and out of traffic?]

At 7:09 p.m., a woman called from a campground on the 15000 block of Orchard Springs Road to report a next-door neighbor brandished a knife or a gun an hour ago. The woman did not want a deputy to respond and would contact the sheriff's office if she had further problems.

[A knife or a gun, but I am not sure which.]

At 7:23 p.m., a caller from Old Wood Road reported hearing a verbal fight, then a single gunshot. Deputies checked the area and were unable to locate anything.

[Well, at least this entry had potential for legitimacy... but nothing was located. I wonder how many calls to the police end up with nothing found.]

At 12:54 a.m., a caller from the 10000 block of Boulder Street was unclear on the phone and was possibly reporting an unwanted person. Deputies made contact with the caller, who was OK and was blaming all of his problems on the sheriff's office.

[Blaming the sheriff's office being a sign of well being I guess.]

At 7:35 a.m., a woman called from the 11000 block of Newtown Road to report a suspicious-looking envelope in her mailbox. Her husband's name was on it. She said she was scared because she didn't know who put it there, and she had been having problems with her neighbor recently. A deputy called the woman, who said she would look in the envelope and notify the deputy if the contents were of a criminal nature.

[A new level of paranoia! I suspect that somebody in a blue uniform with the acronym "USPS" printed on it somewhere probably put it there.]
