Moraga Police Blotter

Creepy driver 9/08/15 Undisclosed reporting parties were walking on Camino Pablo, when the driver of a light-colored pickup truck stopped near them and asked if they could assist him in looking for a lost animal. The subjects responded by running away from the driver. Cops checked the area, but could not find the suspect.

Unauthorized driving 9/10/15 The driver of a Toyota Camry was recognized by a police officer, and was pulled over. The fellow had a suspended driver's license from a prior DUI arrest, and was in possession of a meth pipe. He was arrested for driving while his license was suspended and for possession of paraphernalia and violation of court probation. He was released at the scene and the car was towed and impounded. Uber would have been the better and considerably cheaper option.

Threats to football coach 9/11/15 The principal of Deer Valley High School reported that a parent of one of their JV football players had a verbal outburst that was directed at the coach. Which team's coach was not specified. "The outburst included a slightly veiled threat to shoot the coach," noted the police report. Several members of the coaching staff and school administrators overheard the statements. The coach requested the incident be documented and the parent removed from the Campolindo campus. Cops spoke with the parent who admitted exchanging words, but denied threatening him.

Stolen vehicle 9/14/15 A Toyota tundra with an attached trailer was stolen from in front of a home on Ascot Drive between Sept. 11-13. Both the trailer and the truck have "Gardening Solutions Company" decals in plain view. Neither truck, nor trailer has been found yet.

DUI 9/14/15 A 23-year-old was driving his older Toyota east on Moraga Way at 2 a.m. and left about a 50-foot skid mark on the roadway prior to hitting the curb just east of Miramonte Drive. Cops did not see the incident, but evidence left at the scene led officers to the Toyota and the driver. He was arrested for DUI and hit and run.
Assault 9/14/15 There was a report of battery at Saint Mary's College. Moraga cops made contact with the 18-year-old female victim who claimed she had been battered by an 18-year-old male acquaintance during a sexual encounter earlier in the evening. The incident was investigated and the case forwarded to the Contra Costa District Attorney for review.
