Grass Valley Police Blotter vol. LXXXVIII

3:40 p.m. - A woman called from the 500 block of Fawcett Street to report she recognized a dead cat on Highway 49 as one of her neighbors' cats, which had been missing for several months. She said a man in the neighborhood had pointed at a kitten "as if his hand was a ".45 Magnum" and the kitten didn't move. In addition, two jade plants were taken from her house about five months after she moved in. She wanted officers to take DNA from dead jade plants for further investigation. Also, someone had taken some of her newly sprouted trees while cleaning up after the last storm. An officer contacted the woman.

[No doubt to expedite getting that jade plant DNA to the FBI lab.]

8:11 p.m. - A man called 911 from the 14000 block of Highway 49 to report a possible heart attack. Paramedics responded, and requested deputies respond to explain proper usage of 911 to the man. He said he wanted to reach his girlfriend at the hospital and he thought he could get through easier by calling 911.

[Everybody's personal crisis seems more important than mere rules or logic.]

5:10 p.m. - A caller reported a man pulled up to Condon Park in a silver Honda Prelude, got out, looked at a small plastic bag containing white powder, then got into a green Toyota 4-Runner and left. A patrol officer was advised.

[Suspicious indeed.]

6:59 a.m. - Deputies followed two dirt bikes on Highway 174. Officers pursued the bikes, which were going at a high rate of speed and crossing double-yellow lines. The bikes crossed the county line and deputies ended the chase due to safety concerns.

[Or apathy reasons... or the whole "somebody else's problem" idea....]

9:58 a.m. - A caller from a business on the 300 block of Sacramento Street reported a person wearing a striped blue shirt and a black hat stole a cheeseburger. A deputy arrested the woman on suspicion of petty theft with a prior conviction for theft.

[I can stealz cheeseburger?]

9:05 p.m. - A deputy was following two dirt bikes that had outrun deputies in Cedar Ridge Monday. One bike was purple, and one was red. They were going 50 miles per hour on Highway 174 toward Cedar Ridge. The riders were driving recklessly and crossing the double yellow lines. Another deputy joined in the chase, but both deputies abandoned the chase at the Placer County line. Dispatcher advised Placer County law enforcement to be on the lookout for the dirt bikes.

[See, somebody else's problem. The SEP field works.]

10:36 p.m. - Police arrested a 20-year-old man on South Auburn Street at Winchester Street on a local warrant. The man asked for police to drop off his personal bag to a 43-year-old man at a motel up the street. Police arrested the 43-year-old man on a local warrant.

[With friends like that....]

10:53 a.m. - A man from the 200 block of Horizon Circle reported he left his keys in the ignition with the motor running while delivering a package to a residence. When he returned, the vehicle was gone.

[Go figure.]
