Police Unraveling Teen Burglary Case
Moraga police continue to look into the work of a 15-year-old Carroll Ranch resident who reportedly burglarized a string of Moraga homes in recent days. Police say they have recovered some of the electronics, jewelry and other items taken in as many as six residential burglaries and that their case has been submitted to the District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
“He’s Dead… Kinda.”
On June 30, police went to the home of a sex registrant living in town after that person failed to comply with the terms of his registration requirements. The parents of the registrant allegedly told officers their son had died recently – information that conflicted with reports that the individual had been located in Klamath Falls, Oregon, on June 28. Police agencies in both areas are communicating.
This is a first for us and we’ve heard of most things people do, but it seems Moraga – and the Moraga Library specifically – has a book batterer on its hands. Librarians told police that they find two to three books vandalized after the appearance of a certain individual in the Friends of the Library section of the library. Librarians tend to take that kind of thing personally, particularly after two to three more books were vandalized June 1. A move to ban the suspected offender from the premises is afoot.
“Cleanup On Aisle… Outside.”
Police were dispatched to the Moraga Safeway on July 2 after a woman described as being between 50 and 60 years of age attracted attention while yelling and shouting profanities at the outdoor lunch tables set up for employees. Officers confirmed the person was yelling upon arrival and found her sitting at one of the tables, exhibiting the characteristics of someone under the influence and carrying on a “nonsensical” conversation. Judged to be unable to care for herself, she was placed under arrest for public intoxication and given a ride to county.
