Grass Valley Police Blotter vol. LXXVIII

8:29 p.m. - A caller from a restaurant on East Main Street reported a drive-through customer who smelled like marijuana. Responding officers cited the youth on suspicion of driving while possessing marijuana, and released him to a parent.

[I suspect that fast food and convenience stores would be fertile ground for this sort of bust.]

2:27 p.m. - A motorist was pulled over at Colfax Avenue and South Auburn Streets and arrested on suspicion of not having driver's insurance that qualifies in California.

[A pretty esoteric thing for which to pull somebody over.]

10:09 p.m. - Officers responded to a call of loud drums in the 300 block of Horizon Circle. They discovered a band that was shutting down for the night.

[The call of loud drums can be irresistible in the night.]

10:21 a.m. - A man from the 11000 block of Caledonia Way dialed 911, hung up, and upon callback was very upset over a bear in the area.

[They at least had the presence of mind, at the last second at least, to realize that the police were not going to be the solution.]

2:20 p.m. - A man from the 160000 block of Ophir Hill Road reported his neighbor posted obscene language on signs and faced them toward the caller's property.

[No doubt part of an ongoing dispute.]

6:58 p.m. - A caller from the 300 block of Sutton Way reported numerous juveniles were in a hallway, and they appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. One male juvenile in Hawaiian-print swim trunks said he had five warrants, and he didn't care who called the police on him. Police contacted the youths. They were not under the influence of any substance, and the young man with the swim trunks did not have any warrants for his arrest.

[Kids these days, standing around, not doing drugs, not committing crimes and openly rubbing our faces in it.]

8:25 a.m. - A caller from a business on the 100 block of Mill Street reported seven men and a woman were smoking marijuana behind the business and they possibly were clients of a homeless shelter intake center. Police determined the people did not have drugs and they were all waiting for the bus. They did not confirm whether they were homeless.

[I suppose after swooping in for a drug bust and finding everybody was just waiting for the bus, the question of homelessness became a bit silly.]

12:03 a.m. - A caller from the 300 block of North Church Street reported a man in his 50s was sleeping on the porch, then went inside the residence. He was refusing to leave. Police contacted the 54-year-old man, who said he would get a hotel room.

[A reasonable response, I suppose. But deciding to sack out on somebody's porch in the Sierras in November when a hotel room is a viable options?]

9:27 p.m. - A caller from the 10000 block of Broken Oak Court reported an X-Box had been stolen and switched with the neighbor's broken X-Box video game system. Deputies contacted both parties and determined the accusation was unfounded. Neither X-Box was working.

[Microsoft: Greetings Gentleman. All your XBoxes are broken by us!]
