Sept. 10 – 17, 2020
‘This Is Not Mexico’: Not for the first time, mind you, a man on Miller Avenue was heard to scream “This is Mill Valley, Not Mexico.” The person suspected of being the racist voice in the nightr was, once again, talked to by police and told in no uncertain terms to “knock it off.”
Identity Theft: A woman told police that she received an email saying she had applied for unemployment benefits. But, she didn’t. Police investigating.
Homeless Shower: A homeless man, possibly a bit high on something, was taking a shower using the hose from a private building. Police talked to the showering man and advised him about what he’s doing wrong.
Parking Dispute: A woman parked on her street and returned to find her neighbor put construction cones around her car. He told her she was in his spot. But there is no “his” or “her” spot on a public street. Neighbor dispute.
Booze Hound: A man stole several bottles of “high-end” booze from the grocery story on Camino Alto. Police found the man, returned the alcohol, and took the man away.
Bikes Stolen: Two bikes were taken from a garage on Bolsa Avenue.
Creepy Sounds: A woman called police because she heard scraping sounds at the door and at a window of her home on Winwood Place. She locked herself in the bathroom. Police arrived and found indications of someone trying to get in the house, but no one was seen.
Cars Jacked: Several cars on Nelson Avenue were broken into overnight.
Sept. 9 – 10, 2020
Disturbance: A woman called the police because she heard noises at the door. She yelled out and the noises stopped. Now they are starting again. Police checked it and found nothing. Suspect raccoons.
Spot Checks: Police did a physical check of various Sausalito restaurants to ensure mask compliance. All was good.
Dog Attack: A pit bull dog jumped out of a car on Bridgeway and attacked a Golden Retriever. The latter was injured with a possible broken hip. Police responded but the owner of the pit bull was not located.
Spot Check: A random spot check of downtown Sausalito found 95% of people wearing masks. Those who were not taking the COVID-19 precaution were stopped and educated.
Dog Barking: Marin dogs are smart. They bark their heads off right up until the time someone calls the cops. Such was the case on Sausalito Boulevard. The dog barked for hours, a caller said. Police rolled to the scene. Nothing. Not a peep.
Eat ‘n Run: Six people ate big at a local restaurant and then skipped out on the bill. Loss to the small businesses was about $300.
