Moraga Police Blotter

Drunk pet sitter, 8/09/12 A concerned Merrill Drive family called the police at nearly 2 a.m. to report they heard someone enter through the garage door and was currently making noise in the lower level of the house. Cops found a clearly intoxicated 19-year-old who was a family friend. The fellow believed he was supposed to feed the cats that day and entered the house without the residents' knowledge. Homeowners didn't press charges and offered to let him stay the night to sober up.

Battery, 8/07/12 An Ascot Drive resident was allegedly battered by her boyfriend as the result of an argument. Officers contacted and arrested the subject.

False alarm, 8/05/12 Cops responded to an alarm at a Whitethorne Drive home in the middle of the afternoon. They discovered the front door open with no signs of force, looking through the home they found nothing unusual or suspicious. Police kindly locked the door and went out through the garage. Homeowners returned while cops were leaving and speculated that their son had not locked the door and the wind blew it open. No harm done.

Pot found during traffic stop, 8/05/12 A Nissan sedan was pulled over for a broken rear licenses plate lamp. When the officer greeted the driver, there was a strong odor of marijuana. Although the motorist didn't think there was any pot in the car, police found less than one ounce in the trunk. Driver didn't have a medicinal cannabis card.

Underage drunk driver, 8/03/12 A Crown Victoria was pulled over in front of 7-11. Upon contact, police noted the 17-year-old driver was on a provisional license and there was a curious odor of alcohol in the air. The young lady also had two friends in the car, ages 19 and 20-a big no-no. Although she only had a blood alcohol level of .011 (.08 is the threshold for drunk driving) she was under the legal drinking age, and she didn't happen to have her provisional license with her. Can you say lost driving privilege?

Honey, I've lost the car, 8/01/12 A 27-year-old woman walked to the 24-Hour Fitness in Moraga at 3:20 a.m. after driving her vehicle off the roadway in an unknown location. Police came from the Sheriff's office, Orinda, Lafayette and Pleasant Hill to locate the car - a Honda CRV. The inebriated woman tried to back-track her route, with the help of police, from her home in Lafayette - but still couldn't find the car. Thoughtful police took her home and dropped her off in the care of a friend. If you happen to find a CRV in a ditch somewhere in Lamorinda - it just may be hers.
