Moraga Police Blotter

Theft at Gym, 4/17/11 Cops responded to a petty theft at 24 Hour Fitness. Sometime between 6:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. two purses were stolen out of a locked locker in the women's locker room. Missing credit cards were used for a shopping spree in Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill and Vallejo. Total loss approximately $1,220. The incident is being investigated by Moraga's finest, including a review of surveillance footage.

Stolen car found, 4/16/11 A car reported stolen in Berkeley earlier in the day was found on St. Mary's Road near the Moraga Library. Police did a routine check on a green 1996 infinity 130. Surprise, the DMV reported the car stolen. A screwdriver and crowbar were found on the front seat. Happy ending - the car was released to the daughter of the registered owner. Perhaps the thief checked out a book and took the bus home?

Driving with drugs, 4/15/11 Cops pulled over the 19-year-old driver of a white BMW on Chalda Way near Rheem Boulevard for a broken brake light. An officer could smell alcohol from the car, a search resulted in the seizure of six small balloons containing a black tar-like substance, several hypodermic needles and an open bottle of alcohol and jewelry. The jewelry is being investigated as stolen. The subject was taken to the Moraga Police Department and later to the main detention facility in Martinez and his car was towed away.

Pot pipe at Campo, 4/14/11 Two students were detained by high school staff for possession of drug paraphernalia. Staff handled the incident administratively, giving both students a five day suspension for a glass water pipe containing suspected marijuana residue. One of the students had the option of counseling to reduce her suspension. Does zero tolerance ring a bell?

Laptop lifted from car, 4/09/11 A laptop was taken from a locked car parked on Ascot Drive sometime during a three day period. When the owner returned to his car on 4/09 he realized that the car's rear driver's side window had been smashed and the computer was gone. Total loss estimated at $1,200.

Loud party, 4/10/11 Cops came to an Ascot Drive apartment to check out a loud noise complaint. Upon arrival cops could hear the shindig from fifty feet away. After removing (?) the unwanted attendees a citation was issued for a "Loud or Unruly Party." No further complaints. Perhaps they were celebrating the exciting conclusion to the Masters Golf Tournament?
