Moraga Police Blotter
Welfare check 8/25/15 Moraga officers responded to Sullivan Drive to check on an elderly female resident. The cops tried to make contact with her, but were unable to. They finally forced entry into the home and found the woman alive and in need of medical attention. The fire department responded, and took her to a local hospital for further evaluation and treatment.

Possession of alcohol 8/25/15 It was almost midnight when police made contact with an 18-year-old male driver and his four passengers parked in front of a local supermarket. Through investigation, cops determined that the driver had several cans of unopened beer and an open container of liquor. The driver was cited and released at the scene along with his passengers.

Library heist 8/27/15 An unknown suspect entered a locked storage area of the Moraga Library and removed property, (perhaps books?) valued at over $200. There was no sign of forced entry and nothing was seen or heard. No suspects or leads at this time.

Public drunkenness 8/29/15 Maybe it was the late hour, almost 2 a.m., but cops were concerned about the 18-year-old male who was hitchhiking on Moraga Road near Corliss Drive. Cops determined he was unable to care for himself due to his intoxicated state. He was arrested for being drunk in public and taken to the Martinez Detention Facility for booking.

Auto burglary 8/31/15 Sometime during the night, an unknown suspect smashed the right front window of a Toyota Corolla parked in front of a house on Camino Ricardo, reached in and removed a small bag from the front seat.
