Orinda Police Blotter
Here we blow again, 2/20/12 Orinda police found a fifty-something woman drunk in public. If this sounds vaguely familiar, hang on-- because it is. This time the woman was found lying under a picnic table, singing. When she crawled out, the arresting officer noticed her gait was unsteady, her speech was slurred and her eyes looked bloodshot and watery. She admitted she'd been drinking: "a lot." "I'm probably a 3.0 [blood alcohol content]" she said. The poor woman is already on misdemeanor probation. She was transported to Martinez Detention Facility, where she was booked.

Keeping these fellows from their appointed rounds, 2/13/12 Just before Valentine's Day two men were found in possession of mail from an Orinda address. Problem is, the mail and the mailbox weren't theirs. The owner of the mailbox confirmed the theft and the pair were arrested on charges of petty theft and outstanding warrants.
