Moraga Police Blotter

Tax identity theft, 4/19/16: A Roberts Court resident attempted to file her taxes and discovered her social security number had already been used to fraudulently file tax returns. Presumably her refund is long gone, but surely the government will be happy to send another check. The reporting person was in contact with the IRS, but wanted to file a police report to cover all her bases.

Stolen golf cart, 4/17/16: A golf cart was stolen by a male subject around 9 p.m. near the ninth hole of Moraga Country Club golf course. Cops looked but did not find it. The cart couldn't be entered into the police Stolen Vehicle System since it didn't have a VIN or serial number.

D.U.I., 4/16/16: Was it driving over landscaping or perhaps allegedly striking a building on Camino Peral that alerted officers to a person driving under the influence? The driver submitted to a chemical test, was found to be less than sober and was released to a relative after signing a notice to appear. No word on the car, which probably slept it off.

Double whammy, 4/14/16: It was not a happy hour, although it was around 7 p.m. in front of Safeway when a woman was found to be under the influence and on probation. This included prohibiting her from consuming alcohol. She was arrested for public intoxication along with the added bonus of probation violation and taken to jail.

Craigslist Honda fraud, 4/13/16: An unnamed individual paid $6,500 cash for a car that wasn't actually for sale, and didn't belong to the seller. The victim made contact with the fraudster at Starbucks for an arranged sale of a 2011 Honda Civic. When the reporting person attempted to change title at the DMV the next day, he was advised that the vehicle was owned by a third party and that a bank possessed a lien on the car. The cash and the seller have vanished.

Mailbox trauma, 4/12/16: Sometime during the night, an unknown suspect pried open all of the mailboxes at a Moraga Way complex. One of the sections of mailboxes had been completely removed from the group. Damage is estimated at $200. Hard to say if any mail was stolen.
