Grass Valley Police Blotter vol. XCV

2:39 p.m. - A man called to report a woman was continuing to stalk him through his Myspace account.

[Crimes of the digital age.]

1:57 p.m. - A woman called from the 22000 block of Trotter Road to report two men came on the property in a blue and white pickup with "Omni Meat and Seafood" painted on it. The caller felt they were suspicious and her brother took a picture of them. One of the men threatened to knock the man out before they left.

[Is meat on wheels as common in other areas? Issues with hostile, roving meat sellers seem to crop up in Nevada County rather often.]

4:07 p.m. - A caller from the 10000 block of Darlene Court reported a neighbor threatened to blow up his house. The two were having a dispute over survey markers and trimming bushes on the property line.

[That seems a little extreme.]

11:34 p.m. - A caller from the 11000 block of Sierra Circle reported a fight with her son. A deputy arrested a person on suspicion of resisting arrest.

[I always wonder how "resisting arrest" can be the only charge.]

11:36 p.m. - A man called from the 16000 block of Lowell Hill Road to report he came home and a neighbor was in his house. The house was "trashed," but nothing was missing.

[Just a messy, intrusive neighbor. Not somebody who would, say, blow up the house.]

9:35 a.m. - A woman from the 600 block of Brighton Street reported she received a call yesterday from a company called "Valley Benefit of America." The person offered a free gas or shopping card in exchange for the woman's personal information. The woman did not give out her information, but requested a log entry.

[Yeah for somebody smart!]

11:11 a.m. - A caller from the 600 block of Brighton Street reported the theft of a stone elephant sometime in the first half of March. An officer took a report for petty theft.

[Should that be "proboscidea theft?"]

10:55 p.m. - A man called from the 100 block of Northridge Drive to report his sister and her husband got into a fight. The fight was "playful," however there was a knife involved and someone's hand was cut.

[But it was playful... so they called the police.]

1:49 p.m. - A woman called from the 200 block of Sutton Way to report a man was demanding money for a car accident involving her son. The man said that if he didn't receive the money, he was going to beat up her son.

[I think I've dealt with that insurance company before.]

1:53 p.m. - A man called to report a man wanted for parole violations was at the hospital getting his hand sewn up. The man said he wanted the man picked by police and out of his daughter's life. Police went to the hospital emergency room and arrested a 46-year-old man for warrants and on suspicion of violation of parole and resisting arrest.

[Nothing special, except the added bit about getting the man "out of his daughter's life." I'm not sure the police have that much power, unless the daughter cooperates.]

10:58 a.m. - A caller from the 11000 block of Newtown Road reported a man was going door to door asking for used batteries. The man was driving a gray truck with Idaho plates. The man said he was going to the North San Juan area.

[Used batteries? What would he do with them?]

1:15 p.m. - A caller from the 17000 block of Highway 49 reported a man in a gray truck was asking for used batteries for a diabetes foundation. The man was headed toward the river. Deputies were unable to locate the man.

[Okay, what would the diabetes foundation do with them?]

4:33 p.m. - A caller from the 11000 block of Newtown Road reported a man in a truck was asking for batteries. A deputy interviewed the man in the truck, released him and took a report.

[The deputy appeared to be satisfied that this battery person was on the level.]

5:41 p.m. - A caller from the 11000 block of Flying T Road reported a ham radio operator was making threats to shoot other ham radio operators in Contra Costa County. The operator sounded drunk, and he was also threatening to shoot himself.

[See, this sort of thing didn't start with MySpace. We just didn't care about it until then.]

10:13 a.m. - Animal Control reported receiving numerous calls about a dog with a homeless person at Calanan Park. Many people were concerned about the dog. Animal Control determined the dog is old and has cancer.

[There is a homeless person, but everybody is worried about the dog.]
