    Phone threat
    A person reported getting a threatening phone call from an unknown female.

    Phone compromised
    A person reported that someone had gotten into her cell phone and changed the settings. The phone company couldn’t show that her phone account had been compromised.

    The case of the pinging phone
    A cell phone was turned in to the police station and it started pinging in the evidence locker. Turns out the parents of the owner were using a GPS to find it and that made it ping.

    Found flag
    A flag was found on City property, but the City says it isn’t theirs.

    Bark Bark Bark
    Well, not exactly bark bark bark. More like terrorizing. A person on Bentley report that the neighbor’s dogs kept getting loose and breaking into her yard, and that she was afraid of the dogs. The Animal Control Officer put them back but they got out again. End of story, the owner of the dogs agreed to reinforce the fence to contain the dogs.

    Bark Bark Bark
    On Balboa, the new dog in town barks all night and day. Police are looking into it.

    Disrespecting your elders
    Three juveniles were impeding traffic while skateboarding and an adult told them to move along. They became disrespectful and the adult didn’t take kindly to that. The police asked him to call them next time and not to engage the juveniles.

    No license, apparently no car seat
    A person was stopped on Sunset for having a small child in the front seat. Turns out he didn’t have a license. He was cited and the car was parked. No indication of what happened to the small child in the front seat but we can surmise…

    No license, no seat belt
    A person was stopped on Pine Ave. for not wearing a seat belt and having front tinted windows. Turns out their out-of-state license was suspended and there was a warrant for her arrest. She was arrested for the warrant and released on citation.
