    Deer hitchhiker changes its mind

    Reporting party stated she was driving northbound in her convertible on Grove Acre Ave. when her vehicle collided with a deer, shattering the passenger side headlight.

    Graffiti not welcome here

    Doing the right thing

    The attorney for the estate of a deceased person turned in the decedent’s revolver which was clear in the NCIC firearms system, then cleared of ammunition and secured in a gun evidence box pending destruction.

    Not the best sales pitch

    So the reporting party gets a phone call from someone representing a business offering lower rates on credit card debts. When the representative did not answer questions about the business’s legitimacy, he was told the call was probably a scam, whereupon the representative became upset and said he did not make enough money to be called a scammer, then hung up. A couple minutes later the representative called again, this time threatening murder. The phone number was traced to Florida.

    Lost and found

    A wallet was found on Pine Ave.

    The subject reported losing a thick gold ring set with a white opal. She paints along the Peninsula and thinks she lost the ring between August and mid-September.

    After removing and folding his SUV car cover, the (obviously distracted) reporting party placed it on top of his vehicle, then drove away. He backtracked, but was unable to locate the cover that is stenciled with his vehicle’s license plate number.

    Okay, let me see if I got this straight

    The subject came to the police station to report that his wallet had been stolen and while he was waiting for an officer, he also reported the loss of his cell phone. It was while he was looking for his cell phone that suspects took his wallet. He believes his cell phone was lost on the rock outcropping area of Lovers Point. (The next day) the subject reported dropping his cell phone into the water and went to look for it, and when he returned to where he was hanging out, his wallet was gone. He does not know if he lost the wallet or if it was stolen as there were young people in the area. There was nothing of value in the wallet.
