Moraga Police Blotter

Big burglary, 12/24/14 A Corliss Drive resident was out of town for five days over Christmas and returned home on Dec. 28 to find two safes were stolen, along with a 2004 gray Honda Accord. The homeowner didn't know who would have done this. She estimates the monetary loss to be approximately $12,000. Neighbors didn't see or hear a thing.

TV taken, 12/23/14 A family member went to check on her uncle's unoccupied Lynwood Place residence and discovered the pedestrian garage door had been forced open. The only thing missing was a television worth an estimated $400, but the rest of the house had been rummaged through and miscellaneous food, alcohol, bedding and towels had also been taken.

Grand theft auto, 1/01/15 Not much of a happy new year for the guest of an Ascot Drive resident who had a cell phone, sunglasses and personal checks taken from the inside of his unlocked vehicle which had been parked in the driveway overnight. Total loss estimated at approximately $1,300. The case is under investigation, but inactive pending further evidence.

Danger to self, 1/02/15 Cops were on routine patrol of the Rheem Shopping Center when they were contacted by a woman having emotional/mental health issues. Police determined she was a danger to herself and she was taken to the hospital.

Chair theft, 1/03/15 A citizen contacted cops in front of the police department, just down the road from where he just observed a theft by three white males in their late teens or early 20s stop in front of a Rheem Center dining establishment and quickly place two outdoor chairs into the back of the vehicle before speeding off. The observer wisely took photos of the suspect's vehicle. The incident is under investigation.

Resisting arrest, 1/05/15 Police checked on a man parked in front of a Corliss Drive residence and asked the fellow multiple times to step out of the vehicle, but he refused. The subject started acting as if he was hiding something under a blanket and would not listen to officer's commands. As police opened the vehicle's door, the gentlemen started resisting; after a brief struggle the subject was subsequently arrested for resisting and obstructing a peace officer. He was also ticketed for being under the influence of a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia.

The following incidents also occurred between Dec. 24 and Jan. 5:
Petty Theft - Silvia court
Violation of Court Order - Ascot Court
False Alarm - Camino Peral, Claudia Court, Fairfiled Place, Sanders Ranch Road, Corte Royal, School Street, Rimer Drive, Danefield Place, Kimberley Drive
