Moraga Police Blotter

Wrong way, 1/06/13 Perhaps it was driving on the wrong side of the street that was a heads up, but alert officers knew with a whiff that the driver and his friend had been smoking marijuana. The young men admitted to being in possession of less than one ounce of pot. The 17-year-old passenger was released to one of his parents at the scene and entered in the Juvenile Diversion Program. His pal the driver was 18 years old and was issued a citation for possession of pot.

Suspicious foggy windows, 1/06/13 Cops spotted an older blue BMW with foggy windows parked on Natalie Drive at 4:30 p.m. When the occupants rolled down the window, a blast of pot smoke exited the vehicle. The person in the driver's seat received a citation-due to a prior infraction he wasn't eligible for the juvenile diversion program, but his friend was eligible and was entered into the program.

Stolen car found, 1/06/13 At 4:30 a.m. officers spotted a brown Mercedes parked along the side of Canyon Road, about a mile north of Pinehurst Road, a rather unusual location to park. Turns out the car had been reported stolen the day before from Orinda. The car was towed after police were unable to contact the owner. Car thieves didn't get very far.

Loud party, 1/06/13 Loud noise and music greeted officers as they checked out a Moraga Road party after midnight. Cops informed the homeowner that there had been a complaint. The party was officially over at that point and the neighborhood returned to its usual quiet punctuated by the occasional owl.

Graffiti, 1/04/13 Staff from Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School called to report that an unknown suspect entered a storage room while it was unattended and used a black marking pen to write graffiti on the inside of the door and the cement floor.

Auto burglary, 1/03/13 Not the entire car, just the stuff in the car. An Ascot Drive resident reported she parked and locked her Honda Accord in the carport around 4 p.m. When she went out the next day around 10 a.m. all the doors were unlocked and she was missing a large amount of nursing equipment that she needed for work.
