    Four tows of vehicles ignoring “no Parking” signs during Triathlon. Reserve officers provided up to 12 hours each day of the event including police services, contacting some 60 children and passing out “badges” and cards, taking care of road closure and clearing and giving directions.

    Naked man on the rocks
    A man was found to be standing on the rocks, naked, flapping his arms. He was transported for evaluation.

    Lost jacket not in the safe
    A man came into a business on Lighthouse and said he had lost his jacket several months ago. He had called and an employee told him the jacket was in the safe. The female employee on duty now could not find it. She was suspicious of the owner of the lost jacket and wanted a record made by police.

    He came in through the backseat window
    A bicyclist hit a parked vehicle on Central Ave. and was thrown through the rear window.

    Party crasher

    A woman on Funston reported that an old high school friend of her daughter’s turned up in the back yard, asking for help and saying she had just arrived from Oregon and had no place to stay.

She left behind a walker and a suitcase which contained nothing of particular value. They were stored by police for safekeeping.

    Lost and found
    A cell phone was reported lost on 9/14/14.
