Grass Valley Police Blotter vol. XXXXVI

At 10:37 p.m., a woman called from the 11000 block of Sierra Circle to report a missing antique Barbie doll. The woman thought her adult son took it from her home. Police took a report for petty theft.

[Barbie is now old enough to be an antique.]

At 4:26 p.m., a caller reported an overweight woman was smoking marijuana in a tan van while she was in the drive-through at a fast food restaurant on the 10000 block of Olympia Park Road. Police contacted the woman, who had a prescription for medical marijuana.

[And we're all okay with her driving and smoking it?]

At 3:49 p.m., a caller from the 10000 block of Combie Road reported a 2-year-old boy was lying in the gravel and crying. A deputy contacted the child's mother, who said the child was throwing a fit because he was not getting a new toy at a nearby store.

[Oh, I've been there. My wife usually waits patiently until I get up and start acting like an adult again.]

At 6:11 p.m., a caller from the 100 block of West Berryhill Drive reported his girlfriend was verbally attacked by her mother. The caller did not give the mother's name and wanted to make a log entry only.

[Big red warning flag there son. Do you want to be part of this family?]

At 10:33 a.m., a caller from the 700 block of Zion Street reported a man was huffing paint in a room at an inn. Other guest could hear the man and they were complaining. The caller said the man took a taxi to the hardware store to huff more paint. Police arrested the 42-year-old man for possession of a toxic substance for intoxication.

[First, I just like the term "huffing." Second, I like that he was huffing so loudly it was disturbing other guests. Third, he went out for more!]

At 12:40 p.m., a caller from Grass Valley reported a man in a vehicle had been following an armored vehicle from stop to stop. The vehicle was a 1986-1989 Ram Charger. The man was parking so the armored truck driver had to walk past him. The man was also seen in Auburn following the armored vehicle yesterday. Officers were advised, and the caller was told to call again whenever he saw the man.

[I'll be watching the headlines to see how this plays out.]

At 2:34 p.m., a caller from a restaurant on Freeman Lane reported three men were asked to pick up garbage they had thrown on the ground, and they became very threatening to the caller. The men were all wearing baggy shorts and one wore a red and white baseball cap worn sideways. The manager of the restaurant came outside and advised the caller to leave, using abusive language. Police met with the caller outside the restaurant.

[It just doesn't pay to get involved some days.]

At 6:40 p.m. a caller reported a verbal argument involving "Cowboy Bill." He was wearing a cowboy hat and walking toward a bar. Police contacted the caller. No arrests were made.

[Cowboy Bill rides again! And of course he was wearing a cowboy hat! And of course he was walking toward a bar!]

At 9:13 p.m. a caller from the 500 block of St. Patrick's Drive said he hit an animal on northbound Highway 49 near McKnight Way. He just found out his bumper fell off at the scene and might be a traffic hazard. The CHP was notified.

[Lesser men might have stopped to see what they hit and assess the damage.]

At 11:10 a.m., a woman called from the 10000 block of Alta Street to report someone dumped some type of chemicals in her car. A soda can and a soda bottle were dumped on the front and back seats of the car. She said the chemicals smelled acidic and they appeared to be eating the seat material.

[I am betting on Mountain Dew or Dr. Pepper.]

At 3:08 p.m. a caller from the 200 block of Commercial Street reported a grizzly man wearing suspenders and no shirt growled at people who passed by. An officer contacted the man and he moved along.

[Of course he was growling at people. He is a grizzly man!]
