Grass Valley Police Blotter vol. LXXVII

11:25 a.m. - A caller from the 14500 block of Storm Ridge Road reported she couldn't get out because a huge storage container was being moved down her road. She was advised to wait 15 minutes.

[Practical advice.]

2:03 p.m. - A caller from the 10400 block of Broken Oak Court reported hearing someone in the neighborhood banging around on something. Responding deputies discovered the neighbor was setting a crib up for a baby.

[Having set up a crib, I can picture the scene in my mind.]

3:13 p.m. - A woman called from the 15000 block of Carrie Drive saying she'd advertised some items in The Union and got a call from an operator who asked her questions that had nothing to do with the advertised items. While she was talking to the operator, she heard an automated voice say," This could be a scam." The woman said she's received two such calls. She requested a log entry and was asked to contact Nevada County Sheriff's Office.

[There has to be a loophole where, if you warm people something is a scam, you are then absolved of wrong doing. Maybe?]

1:51 a.m. - A woman from the 200 block of Mill Street reported a man in his 50s with a gray beard and mustache and wearing a bandanna, vest and hat was yelling outside her house. Police contacted the 55-year-old man and advised him not to contact the woman and move on.

[As usual, I like the choice of items people use to describe people.]

1:13 p.m. - A woman from the 11000 block of Butler Road reported she was dripping blood from her body. An ambulance responded, and a deputy took an informational report. No arrest was made.

[Bleeding is not a crime, though getting blood on public property might be littering.]

12:23 p.m. - A caller from 13400 Wings of Morning Drive reported receiving threats by text message. The calls were coming from a phone number that refused incoming calls when deputies contacted it. A phone trap will be considered if the messages continue.

[More mental imagery: A phone trap. I picture a phone in the middle of the woods stuck in some steel jaws.]

6:20 p.m. - A caller from the 10300 block of Adam Avenue reported a large explosion. Responding deputies were unable to locate anything.

["Anything" having been, presumably, taken care of by the reported large explosion.]

8:50 p.m. - A caller from the 11100 block of Lakeshore North reported receiving threats by e-mail.

[What a wonderful age we live in.]

3:27 p.m. - A caller from the 10000 block of Valencia Road reported hearing shots fired with an unknown weapon. The caller called back to say the shots were from loggers shooting at a wasps' nest.

[The whole fly/sledge hammer saying comes to mind.]

2:16 a.m. - A caller from Squirrel Creek Road reported multiple people standing on the bridge, blowing a whistle.

[When whistles are outlawed, only the outlaws will have whistles.]
