Orinda Police Blotter

Nanny driving drunk, 4/19/11 A 22-year-old au pair was pulled over on Camino Pablo at Brookwood for weaving in and out of her lane. When police pulled her over, she smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech and performed poorly on field sobriety tests. To make matters worse, she was driving her employers BMW. Probably for the last time.

Burglary, 4/18/11 The unlocked door was an open invitation to a thief or thieves who ransacked all of the rooms of a home on Westwood Court. Electronic items and jewelry valued at well over $10,000 was taken from the home. The do-er must have had a big car or truck, as they took a 50" TV from the home. Police found latent finger prints and will be on the look-out.

Pot in Orinda, 4/16/11 At just after 9:00 in the morning cops came by an Acacia Drive home and saw a woman sitting in a car in front of a residence. Cops noticed her perfume smelled strangely of marijuana. They searched her car and found small individual bags of pot under the front seat. A house call perhaps?

Drunk in Public, 4/16/11 A different young woman allegedly had an argument with an Acacia Drive homeowner and was asked to leave the home. Cops noticed her slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and asked her if she'd had anything to drink today. It was 9:15 in the morning. She said she had three pints of gin - breakfast of champions. Cops determined that she was unable to take care of herself and took her to jail.

D.U.I. 4/16/11 At the bewitching hour, just after 2:00 a.m. when the bars close, a silver Toyota was observed weaving in and out of traffic on Moraga Way near Oak Drive. Cops immediately noticed the smell of alcohol and when the subject flunked field sobriety tests, he got a free ride to the Martinez Detention Facility.

Possession of Drugs, 4/14/11 A car was pulled over for expired tags on Highway 24 at Fish Ranch Road. The nose - knows the strong odor of burnt marijuana. The driver was cited for possession of less than an ounce of pot.
