Moraga Police Blotter

Four car burglaries 3/16/16: Police responded to the Moraga Safeway on a report of four auto burglaries. Like a good neighbor, Orinda P.D. is there - an Orinda officer located the vehicle and pursued it to Oakland. Even more help arrived in the form of air support and an Oakland P.D. cruiser. Two suspects were arrested for possession of stolen property from auto burglaries at Safeway, and conspiracy to commit a crime. The driver was also arrested for evading officers.

More grocery crime 3/17/16: A supermarket employee reported the theft of food and other items, as well as the suspects fleeing in a U-Haul van - way to blend in. The vehicle was stopped by a neighboring unspecified police department and found to be stolen; just a guess - either Orinda or Lafayette cops. Upon further investigation, cops learned the stolen items from the grocery store were recovered by employees prior to the suspects departing the premises. Although they didn't get cited for the shoplifting - the driver of the U-Haul was arrested for vehicle theft and drug charges.

No love for Trump stickers 3/18/16: Around midnight at St. Mary's College, six Trump stickers valued at $10 each have been defaced or removed from the reporting person's car while parked. The fellow also states he has been harassed via social media for his political beliefs and had reported the incidents to St. Mary's College Public Safety. The Trump supporter had no idea who would be removing his stickers, but he wanted documentation of the incident. What about the college's Lasallian commitment to social justice and respect for all persons?

Toddler in traffic 3/19/16: Police responded to a report of a toddler who ran into traffic near the 7-11 on busy Moraga Road at 2:25 p.m. Officers took charge of the child and located his residence, but found no adults at home. The father was eventually contacted via phone and returned to the residence, explaining that he had gone to pick up another child, and left the 3-year-old in the care of a 7-year-old. There was no indication of other neglect or abuse and the child was left in the care of his father. The case was referred to Child Protective Services.

Other crimes occurring in Moraga from March 15 - 22:
