December 22, 2010

Area 1

3900 block of Park Place: A woman parked and locked her convertible in her apartment's underground parking complex the night of Dec. 16. In the morning she found that the car's convertible top had been cut horizontally from one end to the other. The woman reported a GPS unit had been stolen out of the car's glove compartment. Damages totaled $3,300.

3000 block of Markridge Road: A man received a phone call from his home alarm company at 11:30 a.m. on Dec. 17. The company told the man his home alarm had been triggered. When he went to check on it, he found the screen covering the door to the rear bedroom had been cut. The interior glass door remained locked and secure and it appeared no attempts to enter the house were made. The man believed the sound of the alarm scared the burglars away. Damage to the screen door was estimated at $75.

Foothill Boulevard and Cloud Avenue: A deputy pulled a car over for driving with a broken license plate light the night of Dec. 17. The deputy approached the vehicle, which contained three men, and smelled a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the car. The driver told the deputy he was on probation for petty theft and the rear passenger said he was on probation for resisting arrest. The deputy noticed the passenger in the front seat reach between the driver and passenger's seats, pick up a small white object and swallow it. When asked, the passenger told the deputy he'd just swallowed marijuana. Once backup arrived, the deputy discovered two marijuana pipes and a bag of marijuana inside the car. All three men were arrested and the marijuana was confiscated.

5100 block of Circle Vista Avenue: A man reported that someone had stolen a $180 Magellan GPS unit and $20 cassette iPod adaptor from the center console of his unlocked car in the early morning of Dec. 18. The man told deputies that at 4:30 a.m. he'd heard a noise outside his bedroom window where his car was parked but didn't check on his vehicle until approximately 8:30 a.m.

4300 block of Ocean View Boulevard: A man reported the rear driver's-side window of his vehicle had been smashed on Dec. 18. The man's laptop computer, backpack, iPad and engraved pen were stolen from the back seat of the car without the alarm sounding. Damage was estimated at $3,575.
