Creek Diva: Crack, Crime and Chaos in November

The Diva is watching, Walnut Creek, so be good for goodness sake.

Thursday, November 22

Wild Turkeys:  Several late night/early morning revelers were arrested downtown for public intoxication. Not a good way to start Thanksgiving.

A 7 year-old Turkey Trot runner went missing at 8:56a.m. He was located a short time later. Readers, did you participate in the run this year?

Variety: A man was arrested at Bancroft Shopping Center on various charges including being in possession of stolen property, narcotics, having a “small folding hunting knife”, and violating his probation.

Kiosk hanky-panky: One of the new kiosks was vandalized at Liberty Bell Plaza overnight. Creek Diva isn’t much of a shopper -- what’s being sold at the kiosks?

Apartment fire: A fire broke out on Creekside Drive, http://walnutcreek.patch.com/articles/fire-damages-apartment-unit-on-creekside-drive It was a little too close for comfort for Creek Diva, she hopes her neighbors are able to return soon.

Flipped: A Honda Civic overturned into a ditch on Rudgear and San Miguel at 6:12 p.m. The driver was transported to John Muir with minor injuries.

Pricy purse: A Gucci purse valued at $1,000 was stolen from a vehicle that was parked on the 1900 block of Tice Valley Blvd this afternoon.

A crime of food and drink: A man was arrested on suspicion of stealing $117 worth of food from Safeway on S. Broadway. Less than two hours later he was arrested on DUI charges.

Safe(way) cracker: A man was arrested on suspicion of shoplifting at the downtown Safeway at 3:16p.m. He was also allegedly in possession of a crack pipe at the time of the arrest.

Burglary: A doctor’s office on La Casa Via was burglarized overnight. A safe containing money, checks, and drugs were reported stolen, along with a MacBook Pro laptop.

No checks: Going out of town? Unfortunately the WCPD is not offering “vacation house checks” at this time. How do you keep your home safe while away?

$6,000 worth of silver flatware and jewelry was stolen from a home on 1100 Running Springs Road sometime in the past week.

A wallet was stolen from a classroom at Walnut Acres Elementary and fraudulent charges were made in San Francisco an hour later. The theft was captured on video surveillance. This has been an unfortunate trend in Walnut Creek lately. Several wallets were stolen at Murwood Elementary a few months ago.

Pooch plea: Please slow down on Trinity Avenue. Two cars that were speeding in the area hit a dog at 6:17p.m.

Early morning baking: That smell? Oh, it must be Eau de Creekside. A caller said a “strong odor” was coming from her apartment on the 1400 block of Creekside Dr. at 6:28 a.m. She didn’t know if it was something burning, marijuana, or a skunk.

Stranger danger: An unknown man asked a WCI student if she wanted a ride to school this morning. He was described as a white male, 40-50 years old, bald, wearing a black coat and driving a white Acura.

$30,000 worth of jewelry was stolen from a home on the 3000 block of Diablo Shadows Dr. There are no suspects at this time.
