Business Matters Police Blotter

Police Blotter

Morro Bay
• April 9: Someone found a man’s wallet at 2 p.m. in the 400 block of Morro Bay Blvd., and someone else found luggage at 2:45 at Monterey and Morro, they’d no doubt lose their heads too if it wasn’t glued on.
• April 9: Police responded at 2:35 p.m. to Harbor and Morro for a report of two juveniles destroying property at Pacific Shores Inn. The item was filed for information only, yet another example of spare the rod; spoil the hooligan.
• April 9: Police responded at 12:43 p.m. to the 400 block of Elena for a most un-neighborly dispute. Logs indicated it was a case of “offensive words between neighbors,” which apparently isn’t yet against the law. At 4:51 on April 8, police took another neighborhood dispute report, this time in the 800 block of Pacific, described as “disturbance of the peace between neighbors.”
• April 8: Police documented a hit-n-split in the 700 block of Quintana, causing minor damage to the vehicle but a no doubt major pain with the insurance.
• April 8: Police responded at 6 a.m. to a business in the 900 block of MBB for a commercial burglary report. No leads on suspects, so a report was done for insurance.
• April 8: Police contacted a regular customer at 1:55 a.m. at Albertsons on Quintana. The 54-year-old stewed tomato was nicked for suspicion of being UTI, and having paraphernalia.
• April 7: A wanted woman, 35, came to the police station to apparently turn herself in. Police cited and released her to catch another day.
• April 7: Police pulled over a suspicious vehicle that was either out late or up early at 4:16 a.m. in the 800 block of Quintana. According to logs the driver apparently didn’t take too kindly to the traffic stop. “He exhibited symptoms of being under the influence of a controlled substance. He refused to participate in the test. He verbally and physically delayed and resisted the investigation,” a hanging offense these days. The miscreant went to the gaol to sleep it off. It was his second brush with Johnny Law in as many days. At 1:58 a.m. on April 6, he was arrested for driving on a suspended license and a warrant.
• April 6: Police contacted a regular customer, 54, at 7:08 p.m. at Dunes and Monterey. The scofflaw had three “confirmed active warrants,” and three’ll get-cha’ 90, days that is. A couple of hours later, they found another lawfully-challenged woman in the 2300 block of Hemlock. She had a warrant but was cite/released, a case of “I do solemnly swear to appear, so help me God, officer, yes I will — this time…” (Wink-wink).
• April 5: Police responded at 4:45 p.m. to a disturbance in the 300 block of Atascadero Road where they arrested a 52-year-old ruddy fellow for flexing his beer muscles.
• April 5: Police responded to the 500 block of Morro where a citizen was going postal over the theft of mail delivered to the wrong address by the Post Office.
• April 5: Police responded to the 500 block of MBB for a grand theft report. Some scoundrel stole about 600 square feet of brick pavers from a construction site.
• April 5: A citizen in the 100 block of Java forgot to lock his car, and naturally some thief stole his wallet.
• April 5: Police responded at 7:57 a.m. to Elena and Birch, where they towed off an office trailer parked in the way of a road crew band-aiding the streets.
• April 4: Police picked up another familiar face, 34, at 7:50 p.m. hanging around at Albertsons. The master criminal had four warrants and was nicked.
• April 4: Police took a report of suspected embezzlement at a business in the 800 block of Main.
• April 4: Police contacted three regular customers at 6:50 p.m. in the 900 block of MBB and popped the weasels for suspicion of possession, paraphernalia and being looped on drugs.
• April 4: Someone stole a bicycle from the front of a home in the 2800 block of Greenwood. In an unrelated case, someone stole a vessel from the Morro Bay Yacht Club.
• April 4: Police marked for destruction a bunch of junk found in the 300 block of Zanzibar, the 300 block of Harbor and the 300 block of Pacific, as the citywide yard sale hangover continues…
• April 3: Police stopped a guy riding a bike at 8:53 p.m. at Bonita and Main for a “traffic offense.” And somehow not having a light turned into being searched and arrested for suspicion of possessing drug paraphernalia, and possessing the evil weed, which is supposed to be legal now, but apparently not so if one is on probation, which certainly seems like a raw deal but is probably not a good defense.
• April 3: A citizen in the 300 block of Preston reported the theft of San Pedro cactus stalks, this week’s example that people will steal anything.
• April 3: Police were called at 12:53 a.m. to the Morro Strand Beach Campground for a disturbance. Logs indicated some apparently unhappy camper, 42, was disorderly and refusing to return to his hovel. The man was of course plastered and allegedly threatened another camper after he learned police had been called. The bent fellow was arrested and checked into the Parkinson Plaza, considerably less comfortable than a campsite at the beach.
• April 1: A woman in the 400 block of Napa found a cell phone and a wallet at her yard sale, a case of ya’ just can’t get rid of this junk…
• March 29: Police responded to the 700 block of Quintana at 9:19 a.m. where a man said some fiend broke into his locked truck and stole a pack of Marlboro Reds.
