Moraga Police Blotter

DUI 7/28/15 Cops were alerted to a possible intoxicated male who was seen getting into a Volvo at the Moraga Center. Police responded to the address linked to the license plate, and located the car parked in the registered owner's driveway with damage. A gentleman was found inside the home and was arrested for suspicion of DUI. Turns out the dent was due to a collision with the mailboxes near the residence.

Computer swiped 7/30/15 An unlocked car was parked at the Rheem Center while its owner dined at a local establishment. The reporting person discovered later that evening that a computer and other property had been removed from the vehicle. Nothing seen or heard, and no suspects or leads. Should have locked the car.

Medical assistance 8/01/15 A Rimer Drive resident complained about pain from a recent surgery to Moraga-Orinda Fire District personnel who responded to a request for service. It was noted that the house is a possible health hazard and on the verge of being uninhabitable. Adult protective services was notified, the gentleman was transported to Kaiser for evaluation, and returned home after being checked out. Later that same day, police determined that both the 80-year-old male and his 70-year-old wife were unable to care for themselves and were gravely disabled. Both were transported by the fire department to Contra Costa Regional Medical Center for evaluation by mental health professionals.

Fake ID 8/01/15 An 18-year-old driver and his 17-year-old passenger were observed to be "suspicious" while parked in front of Safeway at 3:30 a.m. Cops decided to talk to the youths. The driver had a fake Florida drivers' license, several cans of beer and an open container of liquor. Driver was cited for the misdemeanor and released from the scene.

Nail guns shoplifted 8/02/15 Just before 9 a.m., two subjects entered a local hardware store. While one of the gentlemen made a return, the other walked to the power tool section of the store. When the return was complete, he joined his pal at the power tools. Each subject then grabbed two nail guns and exited through the emergency exit on the south side of the building. Although the door is equipped with an alarm, it did not sound. The incident was caught on video surveillance and cops have a lead on the case.

More power tools shoplifted 8/02/15 Same day, just before 3 p.m. Two males entered the same large hardware store, this time wearing hard to miss orange construction vests. Two power tools were picked up from the shelf and taken to the south emergency exit. Both walked out the door, but this time the alarm went off. Employees ran to the door, but were unable to stop the thieves. This incident was also caught on video surveillance. What are the odds it was the same two guys?
