Moraga Police Blotter

Gas Theft, 1/13/14 A Donald Drive resident parked her car on the driveway with a full tank of gas. When she went out the next morning at 8:30 a.m. the vehicle's tank was empty. Estimated loss $60. Clearly that thief sucks.

Brazen morning burglary, 1/14/14 The window on the side of a Sanders Drive home was smashed, unknown suspects entered the home and took a new television and several pieces of jewelry and checkbooks. The theft occurred sometime between 8 a.m. and 12:50 p.m.

Self storage? 1/16/14 At 8:30 a.m. Moraga police responded to an Ascot Drive apartment for a welfare check. They contacted the reporting person and found him locked in a storage closet. The individual was evaluated and determined to be a danger to himself, so the fire department transported him to the Contra Costa Regional Medical Center.

D.U.I./drugs, 1/16/14 There was a solo vehicle traffic collision near the corner of Camino Pablo and Rimer Drive. The 22-year-old driver from Moraga reported that a deer stepped in front of his car, causing him to swerve, hit a road sign and run into a ditch. Suspicious police found a 5-gallon bucket across the roadway that contained less than an ounce of pot and a small bundle of cocaine; 10 hypodermic needles were found in the bushes just outside the passenger side of the car, a sunglasses container in the vehicle held five small baggies of suspected cocaine and 28 extended release Xanax tablets. No comment from the alleged deer, but the driver was taken to jail in Martinez and the car was towed.

Kid hosts party, 1/18/14 There was a loud party in an Ascot Drive apartment complex. Police dropped in, although they surely didn't receive an invitation, and discovered over 20 people under 21 years of age inside the apartment drinking alcohol. The 16-year-old host jumped out of a window and fled police. Cops cleared the remaining party guest and noticed - what a coincidence - a 16-year-old walking nearby. It was determined that he was drunk and was hosting the party while his dad was away. The young man was cited for Hosting a Juvenile Party with Alcohol, he was later released to his mother.
House ransacked, 1/17/14 Police responded to a burglary at a secluded home on Buckingham Drive. Apparently an unknown suspect had gained entry by smashing a rear window and ransacked the entire house. The value of stolen property has not yet been determined. Sadly nothing was seen or heard, and there are no suspects or leads at this time.

In addition, the following crimes were reported between Jan. 14 and Jan. 21:

False alarm Moraga Rd, Larch Ave, Laird Dr
Drunk in public Donald Dr
