Stolen car, 2/10/15 A Camino Peral resident parked and locked his white 1994 Saturn in front of his residence at around 9:45 p.m. As he was preparing to leave the next morning at 8:30 a.m. the car was gone. The area was searched but the Saturn was nowhere in sight.

Gift basket swiped, 2/11/15 A Corte Maria resident reported that sometime between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., an unknown person removed a gift basket intended for a charity auction from his front porch. The basket, valued at $100, was supposed to be picked up at 3 p.m. by one of the charity event organizers. It was picked up, but not by the intended party who also neglected to leave a donation for the mystery charity. Is the stolen basket still tax deductible?

Asleep at the wheel, 2/11/15 On Paseo Del Rio at Campolindo Drive cops responded to a report of a person sleeping or passed out in a parked car. The subject displayed objective signs of alcohol intoxication, once awoken. After finding out his or her blood alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit, the subject was arrested and taken to jail. Lesson: You don't have to be driving to get a DUI. Call a cab; it will be way cheaper in the long run.

Strong arm robbery, 2/16/15 In the middle of the afternoon, near the corner of Camino Ricardo and Danefield two males in black hoodies exited a Mercedes with dark tinted windows and confronted a woman. The two suspects reached for a woman's over the shoulder khaki purse and ended up dragging her approximately 15 feet while forcibly attempting to remove her purse. The victim said her purse contained $200 in cash, a passport and a work visa. The Mercedes was last seen traveling south on Camino Ricardo.

Grand theft, 2/15/15 Sometime between 2 p.m. on Feb. 15 and 8:30 a.m. on Feb. 16 an unknown suspect entered a car parked on Miramonte Drive and removed two sets of aviator headphones, valued at $1,100.
