Moraga Police Blotter

Fireworks confiscated, 7/04/12 Given the option of turning in their fireworks or receiving citations, revelers on Laird Drive and at other locations throughout Moraga chose to give up the goods. The illegal fireworks were later given to Moraga Orinda Fire Department personnel to be destroyed.

Slightly stolen golf cart, 7/04/12 A Moraga Country Club resident said he left his golf cart in the driveway of a neighbors home while attending a party - and left the keys to the cart in the ignition. When it was time to go home, the fellow noticed his cart had vanished. Would-be thieves or merry pranksters only took it as far as Augusta Drive - not far from the cart owner's home. No suspects or witnesses at this point.

D.U.I., 7/07/12 Maybe it was the hour, just after 2 a.m., or the illegal u-turn across double solid yellow lines, but surely the red, watery eyes, slurred speech and odor of alcohol was the real tip-off that this driver was less than sober. The subject flunked the breathalyzer test and was taken to the Moraga Police Department where a forced blood draw was conducted.

Welfare check reveals abuse, 7/07/12 Cops were dispatched to Ascot Drive for a welfare check. The very brief police report categorizes the incident as "Incest" and only notes that the juvenile "had been the victim of assault." The matter remains under investigation.

Argument gets physical, 7/09/12 A 49-year-old female was being restrained at a home on Canyon Road by two adult males. The woman was attempting to visit her 86-year-old mother, but got into a fight with her 60-year-old brother, slapping and biting him. The bite-ee declined prosecution and both siblings left without further incident.

Car fraud, 6/28/12 An Ascot Drive resident thought he was getting a good deal on a used car. He contacted a seller on Craigslist who identified herself as being in the British military and said she was about to be deployed to Afghanistan and needed to sell her car. The wanna-be buyer wired $4,850 to a third party in England using an eBay holding account. The car was supposed to have been shipped from Illinois to arrive on July 9 or 10. Alas the money is gone and the car never arrived.
