Fraudulent use of credit card, 1/2/14 A Camelford Court resident noticed unauthorized transactions on a credit card statement that occurred on the first few days of the year in Orlando, Fla. and southern California totaling just over $250. The person reporting the incident had unfortunately been the victim of identity theft before. The case remains under investigation. The charges were credited back by the fellow's credit card company.

Dirt bike vanished, 1/2/14 An Ascot Drive resident parked and locked his pick-up truck in his assigned stall just after 5 p.m. In the bed of the truck was a red Honda XR80 dirt bike. The next morning when the owner was about to leave, he went out to the truck and found the dirt bike gone and the pick-up burglarized. Cops looked around, but no dirt bike was found in the immediate area.

Petty theft, 1/05/14 At the Campolindo High School parking lot, an iPhone 5 and wallet were stolen from an unlocked car while the driver was swimming at the Campo pool sometime between 7 and 8 a.m. No suspects or leads at this time.

Phone briefly lost, 1/05/14 A shopper at TJ Maxx placed her cell phone in a shopping cart and was unable to locate it approximately 15 minutes later. Mystery Good Samaritan saves the day - officers were later contacted and notified that the phone was returned to the original owner.
