Police Blotters – February 2011

You know you’re reading about a small town when so many of the calls to the police in February are about snowball fights or to report the theft of an umbrella. But mixed into the (mostly pointless) calls related to the winter weather and the depressingly common domestic violence calls were the usual oddball reports of people who were “out of their minds”, “erratic”/dancing and threatening people with shovels and/or acupuncture needles.

  • 11:03 a.m. — A woman reported she could not get a signal on her television. She was advised to clear the satellite dish with a broom.
  • 3:35 p.m. — A caller reported a business was contaminated with arsenic, adding she could feel the contamination on her skin and in her pores.
  • 7:11 p.m. — A caller reported a man who had come in with a lacerated neck had “eloped.” He was located and returned to the hospital.
  • 11:06 a.m. — A caller reported a man was asking people for their credit information. He asked a woman if he could use her ID to buy a moneygram, and told her he would marry her.
  • 5:07 a.m. — A caller reported two men “out of their minds,” asking for doughnuts. They were gone when officers arrived.
  • 9:22 a.m. — A caller reported a man took a big hit off a bong and was driving at a high rate of speed.
  • 2:22 p.m. — A woman reported white supremacist groups were using glassblowing tubes and acupuncture needles to hurt her.
  • 4:18 p.m. — A caller reported a drunken man trying to pull up his pants, then falling over.
  • 4:49 a.m. — A caller reported an “embezzled” vehicle.
  • 4:38 p.m. — A caller reported an “erratic” woman staggering around. She told the person she was dancing.
  • 11:22 p.m. — A Chula Vista police officer reported a man had called an IHOP and said he killed his daughter. The mother was contacted and confirmed the daughter was OK.
  • 12:41 a.m. — A woman reported she had a nightmare and now realized everything is OK.
  • 8:46 a.m. — A woman reported eggs and bologna had been thrown on a truck.
  • 11:59 a.m. — A man from the 11000 block of Fairy Ring Mushroom Court reported people were tearing up the road and he would tie them up if sheriff’s deputies didn’t respond. {I normally remove the location of the calls but in this case, the street name was essential in establishing that this call likely came from an agro hippie.}
  • 3 p.m. — A woman reported someone possibly trying to get in her window. It was a raccoon.
  • 8:06 a.m. — A caller reported a man had been gathering items from the street and piling them in front of a restaurant. When the caller asked him what he was doing, he threatened the caller with a shovel handle.
