Moraga Police Blotter
Underage slightly drunk driving, 10/13/12 At just after midnight, a car with a broken license plate lamp was pulled over in front of the Rheem Shopping Center. Cops found that the 20-year-old driver smelled like alcohol. After some field sobriety tests, his blood alcohol content was found to be .013%, substantially under the .08% that defines drunk driving, but he was under twenty-one, so he was ticketed.

Bike theft, 10/13/12 Sometime between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. a girl's Trek mountain bike was taken from a Ross Drive front porch. Estimated value is $100.

Keyed front car door, 10/13/12 A brand new Infinity JX35 was parked on Walford Drive near Rimer Drive between 6:30 p.m. and 11p.m. when someone keyed the front passenger door and spit at the door's glass window. Estimated damage roughly $500. No witnesses or leads at this time, but it sounds like someone has anger issues.

Stolen campaign signs, 10/09/12 Nineteen of twenty negative political signs about a particular Town Council candidate were stolen from various locations around town. Value of the signs is approximately $130. A police report was requested to document the theft.

Razor blade through window, 10/09/12 While the vehicle's owner was attending a Moraga School Board meeting at Joaquin Moraga School someone wedged a razor blade into the passenger window of the parked car. No damage was done to car, but the victim requested documentation.

Same night, same place, more vandalism, 10/09/12 Sometime after 5:55 p.m. a superficial, six-inch long scratch was etched in a School Board member's car while it was parked at Joaquin Moraga School. There was no evidence to suggest the damage was intentional or accidental.
