WCPD: Stewart Avenue Vandalism Spree

Also on the Walnut Creek police blotter from Feb. 2 to Feb. 5: a road-rage, Mercedes side swiper on North Main Street.

Feb. 2
Mailbox vandalism. Someone damaged mailboxes and landscape lights along Stewart Avenue overnight. The report came in at 8:20 a.m.

Package scare: A resident was suspicious of a plain brown package with no markings on the outside, left in front of a suite at a building in the 2100 block of North California Boulevard. Officers were able to verify the shipping was a legitimate package via FedEx.

Drunk, knocking on door. At 2:55 p.m., a resident on the 1800 block of Cole Avenue called to report a man in a red plaid shirt walking around in the parking lot, apparently drunk. He tried to open the resident's front door. The man eventually left in a cab, Walnut Creek police reported.

Being followed. At 3:01 p.m., a Gill Port Lane resident reported a man knocking on her door saying he was being followed. Officers contacted the 38-year-old man, were unable to substantiate any crime and returned him to a friend's house in Concord.

Rossmoor burglary. At 7:49 p.m., a Golden Rain Road resident called from Los Angeles to report a burglary at her residence with the loss of a $300 necklace. It was based on a neighbor reporting that the absent resident's door was found open and a screen off a window. Officers secured the house and are investigating.

Road-rage side swiper. Called in at 8:17 p.m., a driver was reported to have taken a parking ticket off his Mercedes in the 1600 block of North Main Street, and sideswiped three vehicles as he drove off. He was last seen headed northbound on Commercial Lane. The license plate was partially obscured. Officers are investigating.

Feb. 3
Refused to leave. At 10:52 p.m., officers assisted Kaiser hospital security guards on South Main Street in removing a patient who had been discharged and refused to leave the emergency room. The patient had been treated for rectal pain.

Feb. 4
Two laptops. Sometime over the weekend, a front window was smashed at an office in the 1800 block of Tice Valley Boulevard and two laptops were stolen.
Water heaters. Sometime in the last two days, burglars ran off with two tankless water heaters stolen from a storage box in the 1500 block of San Luis Road.
Weapons turned in. A resident turned in three machetes and a knife for the police department to dispose of.

Feb. 5
Aggressive panhandlers. At 12:45 p.m., police received a report of two aggressive panhandlers at the Walgreens at Ygnacio Valley and Oak Grove roads. The subjects were gone when police arrived. Officers checked the area.
