Browsing through the Walnut Creek police blotter for Aug 1-4.

Monday, August 1

Text threat. A woman reported receiving a text of her ex-boyfriend inside her home and stating he would “harm her dogs.” The man admitted to police he did send the message and both individuals were counseled. 

Heads up, San Luis Road residents. Several cars have been broken into recently. Lock your cars and take all your valuables. “Ninja rocks” were found in the back seat of one of the cars that was burglarized. In case you were wondering, “ninja rocks” are “broken shards of spark plugs that can fracture glass windows on most cars” according to Wikipedia. 

Heavy pot. Nine pounds of marijuana was found the trash behind a dance studio on Mount Diablo Boulevard. It was booked into police evidence for destruction.

Stolen truck. A White GMC Truck, license plate AHS3244, was stolen from a parking spot on the 400 block of North Civic Drive. Several other cars on the 300 block of North Civic were reported vandalized as well.

Bizarre park scene. A caller phoned police after seeing “an elderly man taking photos of a girl who looks 16-18 in a bikini” at Arbolado Park. Police contacted the two consenting adults — no crime. 

Not smart kids. A group of teenagers were seen putting something in the middle of Walnut Boulevard and “trying to get drivers to run it over.” The kids had exited by the time police showed up. 

Political speech. Political solicitors have been requesting signatures. One man was reportedly getting a little too excited about his First Amendment rights at a business on the 2900 block of Ygnacio Valley Road. Readers, how do you deal with passionate political solicitors? 


Thursday, August 4

Tools out the window. Windows were rolled down, the car unlocked, and expensive tools and a computer were stolen from a Toyota Rav4 on Waldale Court. 

BMX dilemma. Four BMX riders were cited for riding at the skate park by Heather Farm Park. Creek Diva wishes that there were a safe and fun place for BMX riders in this town!
