July 29 – Aug. 2, 2021
Much Flashing: A woman drove recklessly on Bridgeway before crashing into a Subaru Outback. A tall woman in her 20s, who wore her long brown hair in a high ponytail, emerged from her car wearing a white tank top and flip flops and began an angry tirade that included, for reasons unexplained, the flashing of “her breasts to everyone.” No pictures or video were provided on the cop log.
Neighbor From Hell: A man on Cloud View Road told police that he lives next to a woman who is “sabotaging” his vehicle by periodically sneaking over to his property and deflating his tires. She also puts a bag of dog poop on his lawn every once in a while. He has no proof of this, but believes it is her.
Yelling Man: A homeless man sat in front of his car, which he was living in, on Johnson Street and yelled randomly. Police talked to him, advised him of city rules and told him to “get personal business up to date.”
What’s Up Skippy: A man with shocking red hair walked up and down public street carrying a camera. Periodically, he skipped. Police said he was doing amatuer mapping.
Weird: A man reported that a man slashed the tires on his bike at Marinship Way. The victim refused to give his name or the name of the man who slashed his tires.
Theft: Someone took a generator off the deck of a boat. It was reported on July 30.
Down The Hill: A vehicle drove off the 101 and down the hill at Spencer Avenue. A dog was momentarily lost in the crash, but was found.
Irritating Bum: A man sat in front of a store on Second Street begging customers to steal him some cigarettes. He periodically would yell at passing cars. Police visited the man and told him to move along.
Day ‘Spa’: Police received an unsubstantiated tip that a day spa in the city was more than, well, a spa, offering naughty services. He said he knows this is because one worker wears provocative clothing. Police took appropriate note of the call.
