Moraga Police Blotter

Loud party, 2/16 A neighbor complained of loud noise coming from an Ascot Drive residence. Although the reporting person had complained through the homeowners association in the past, the situation had not improved, so this time complaints were escalated to law enforcement. Cops advised the sensitive receptor to call police when the noise was unreasonably loud and they would enforce the town's noise ordinance. According to the neighbor there has been unrelated suspicious activity at that address before, and he or she wanted to have the situation documented in case there are future more serious incidents with the allegedly scofflaw neighbors.

Card holder vanished 2/19/16 During the night or morning hours a reporting person lost her card holder that included a driver's license, numerous credit and debit cards as well as insurance cards. It was last seen at a local restaurant in the Rheem Shopping Center. She just wanted documentation since she was scheduled to take a trip via airplane in the very near future, and wanted something to show the TSA, since she couldn't obtain a replacement photo ID in time.

Non-burglary 2/19/16 A Lynwood Place resident called police to report a residential burglary. Cops determined that someone entered the home, but appeared not to have taken anything. Insufficient evidence for further investigation.

Alleged loud music 2/20/16 An anonymous caller alerted police to loud music coming from a Moraga Road apartment at 10 p.m. on a Saturday night. When police arrived, they didn't hear any loud music. Just 15 minutes later the reporting person called back and invited police into his apartment to hear the "loud music." Cops could hear the faint sound of music coming from the adjacent apartment. The neighbor was contacted and told police the fellow next door was sensitive, but agreed to turn the music down. The incident was recorded on the officer's body-worn camera.

Car versus deer 2/22/16 Around 6 p.m. cops responded to a report of a deer that was struck by a vehicle at an undisclosed location in Moraga. Police noted the gravely injured deer lying in the roadway. Due to the extended estimated time of arrival from Animal Control Services, the deer was "dispatched," according to the police report, to prevent further suffering, and was left to be picked up by Animal Control at a later time.

Identity theft, 2/22/16 A Moraga resident went to the police department on Rheem Boulevard to report a fraud. The victim received a letter from Kohl's customer service regarding the fraudulent creation of an account using the resident's personal information. Later, the subject became aware of more attempts to create fake accounts at other businesses. This was a first for the victim.

Tax return identity theft 2/23/16 A Peralta Court resident alerted police that she had reported an incident to the IRS and it was being investigated by their agents. The IRS told the reporting person to follow up with her claim by filing a report with the FTC (Federal Trade Commission). In order to complete her claim with the FTC, she had to obtain a case number from her local law enforcement agency. Voila!
