Orinda Police Blotter
Joint effort yields successful warrant arrest, 9/6/12 Police Chief Jeffrey Jennings announced the September 6 warrant arrest of an Orinda man for failure to comply with the terms of a domestic restraining order. Jennings said the subject allegedly brandished a weapon at a woman. Orinda police, with assistance from Lafayette and Moraga police, arrested him on the grounds of his residence, where they discovered he was in possession of multiple weapons, needles and illegal steroids. A $500,000 bail was set; the subject posted bail and is no longer in custody. Jennings said the case is ongoing, and credits his staff with good police work and his Lafayette and Moraga police counterparts with full cooperation.

Warrant arrest, 10/12/2012 A 22-year-old male was arrested in Orinda on an outstanding warrant filed with Contra Costa Superior Court. His vehicle was towed and stored, and he was transported to and booked at Martinez Detention Facility. Bail was set at $15,000.

Gone in 75 minutes, 10/15/12 The owner of a '94 Civic probably didn't intend to walk as much when he parked his car along Bryant Way mid-day, but when he returned after an hour or so, it was gone. There are no suspects or leads at this time.

Walking under the influence, 10/16/12 He may have had his thumb out, but he probably couldn't touch his fingertip to his nose. Police found a 35-year-old intoxicated male trying to hitch hike in traffic along Moraga Way near Glorietta Blvd. He was taken into custody, transported to Martinez Detention Facility and booked. His blood alcohol tested 0.198.
