Grass Valley Police Blotter vol. XXXVII

At 12:22 p.m., a man called from the 15000 block of Black Gold Road to report his stepson took his vehicle, broke into his office and destroyed it.

[Destroyed it! Can we get an estimate on the level of destruction, or was it absolute?]

At 1:48 p.m., a caller from the 15000 block of Brooks Road reported shots were fired from a nearby property at a propane truck. Everything was quiet when deputies arrived.

[No loud explosions or giant fireballs happened while the deputies were there. Of course, a large, steaming crater can be pretty quiet, so who knows.]

At 2 p.m., a caller from the 11000 block of Rough and Ready Road reported three male juveniles tried to break into a fire house. A deputy made contact with fire personnel who said everything was OK and no one else was in the building.

[Breaking into the fire house at 2pm in the afternoon? Were they looking for chili?]

At 8:23 p.m., a woman called from the 22000 block of Chateau Court to report she fired a warning shot in the ground for a prowler who comes to her house every night. She said the prowler was a man, he was small, muscular and wore dark clothing. She said her dog also chased him off. Deputies made contact and saw there were no prints in the mud where the woman said the prowler was located. The report was determined to be unfounded.

[Was she mistaken about the warning shot as well. Did the dog speak up in her defense?]

At 8:37 p.m., a caller from the 800 block of Old Tunnel Road reported being bitten by his cat.

[Cat bites Man? Why wasn't this the headline? How did the dispatcher respond to this?]

At 2:25 a.m., a man from the 17700 block of Greenhorn Road reported hearing a group of people yelling and screaming near his driveway. The man called back to report the group had left at a high rate of speed toward Brunswick Road. The subjects were later found when ice caused their vehicle to slide off the roadway and into a ditch.

[More fun in Nevada County!]

At 3:41 p.m. a 19-year-old Grass Valley man was arrested on suspicion of burglary and making unauthorized paper money. Bail was set for $20,000.

[Um... I wouldn't take cash from him for bail.]

At 5:48 p.m., a 911 woman from the 100 block of Willow Valley Road reported her roommates had threatened to hurt her all day and have people come shoot her. Officers mediated the situation to the best of their ability.

[When you have a group like that, what can you do really?]

At 1:07 p.m., a man called from the 100 block of Berryhill Drive to report his girlfriend assaulted him and ripped the phone out of the wall two hours ago. Police arrested the 28-year-old woman on suspicion of battery.

[Okay, we have established a pattern here. Damaging phone equipment is only a crime if you are male.]

At 1:19 p.m., a caller reported someone taped a "lost camera" sign on the stop sign at Lidster Avenue and Hughes Road. Police removed the sign.

[Hey, Mr. (or Ms.) Civic-Duty, why didn't you just pull the sign down yourself?]

At 2:41 p.m., a caller from the 300 block of Bennett Street reported a man with a gray beard and missing teeth was going door to door asking for a knife in exchange for two chocolate bars. Police checked the area and were unable to locate the man.

[They had to get their chocolate elsewhere.]

At 9:19 p.m., a caller from a business on the 100 block of Mill Street reported having a run-in with a homeless man who had one arm. It appeared he had been sleeping there. Police checked the area and were unable to locate the one-armed man.

[And so Dr. Richard Kimble's search goes on!]

At 1:37 p.m., a caller from the 10000 block of Alta Sierra Drive reported damage to outside spotlights done by rocks and plastic milk crates.

[Rocks, maybe, but plastic milk crates? Does he live next to a grocery store or did somebody just bombard his yard with the crates?]

At 3:30 p.m., a man called from the 11000 block of Tom Ray Drive to report a woman was on his property breaking up the driveway with a metal pipe or bar. This was part of an ongoing easement dispute.

[Another for the annals of neighbor relations.]
