Moraga Police Blotter

Larceny 3/30/16: Someone entered an unlocked Acura MDX parked overnight in an apartment carport on Moraga Road and stole several items after ransacking the glove box and center console. Jewelry, shoes and cologne which had been left in the rear of the vehicle were taken, but the thief left something behind - a 12-inch knife sharpening rod on the right front seat. No other evidence was found. Estimated loss $225.

Shoplifting 3/30/16: Safeway's loss prevention professional preformed a citizen's arrest on a mystery suspect, who was taken into custody, but was later cited and released at the scene. All the unspecified property was returned to the store.

Out at the light 4/2/16: At about 11 p.m. police found a woman passed out with the car running at an unspecified intersection. Despite being less than alert, she managed to have a foot on the brake pedal. Cops were able to rouse the driver with the assistance of fire department personnel. The "driver" initially lied about her name and birth date, but cops were able to ID her by using a fingerprint reader. She was found to have a $34,500 warrant for forgery, identity theft and drug possession - so she was arrested and the car was towed.

Pocked pair 4/2/16: A Paseo Grande resident reported that two vehicles parked in front of her residence had been struck by multiple projectiles, causing damage. Cops took a close look and determined that the damage was done by a BB or pellet gun. Nothing was seen or heard, so there are no suspects or leads at this time.

Loud party 4/3/16: An anonymous report of approximately 100 college-age people inside and outside an Ascot Drive residence came in at midnight. Coincidentally, the popular party street is also home to many local college kids. Alas, police party poopers encouraged folks to leave and issued the hosting residents a Town of Moraga Warning Notice.

DVD theft 4/04/16: The Safeway assistant manager on duty around lunchtime reported an approximately 30-years-old male wearing a dark shirt and camouflage pants who left the store after placing a number of DVDs into a backpack and bypassing the check stands. Apparently the camouflage pants did not help him blend into the suburban retail environment. The fellow headed out towards Orinda in a white Cadillac SUV. The car was stopped in Orinda by Orinda Police. The suspect was placed under arrest for petty theft and driving on a suspended license.
