Moraga Police Blotter
Alleged fence jumper, 4/15/13 Cops responded to an anonymous report of a suspicious person seen jumping over a back yard fence and entering a residence on Augusta Drive. Police secured the perimeter and waited for a K9 unit to respond. Although there was a thorough search, nobody was inside the home and the homeowner didn't discover any valuables missing.

Suspicious circumstances, 4/15/13 Perhaps residents are on high alert; someone called in about a car parked on Wandel Drive with a man inside at 7:50 a.m. Cops came and determined the subject was part of a work crew at a nearby residence.

Attempted theft, 4/14/13 A 17-year-old white male entered Safeway after 1 a.m. and left the store with a bottle of Crown Royal Whiskey. He was confronted by employees in the parking lot, returned the whisky and sped off in a waiting vehicle.

Driving around late at night, 4/14/13 A Toyota 4Runner was traveling around Campolindo Drive and Moraga Road for several minutes after 3 a.m. Cops saw the car park on Lenelle Court. Turns out, the car was full of teenagers who were out on the mean streets of Moraga without their parents' knowledge. They told the police they were driving around because they thought they were being followed. The kids called their respective parents who came to take them home.

Pool party, 4/12/13 Cops received a tip on a loud party at the pool area of Miramonte Gardens, allegedly 50 people, possibly not Miramonte Gardens residents, drinking and urinating in the bushes. Cops found approximately 15 St. Mary's students who were cooperative, but alas were attempting to barbecue without a resident in attendance. Officers stated the party's over and hung out until all the student non-residents left.

Residential burglary, 4/12/13 Unknown suspects broke into a Campolindo Drive home at some point during the day by forcing open a locked rear door. The suspect(s) stole electronic devices, money and jewelry that totaled approximately $12,000.
