Police in Moraga are hoping to contact a man they say allegedly pulled a gun on a resident who objected to the man going through his trash.
The incident was reported shortly after 11 a.m. when a homeowner in the 200 block of Rheem Boulevard reportedly spotted the man rummaging through his trash without permission and confronted him.
The subject, described initially as a white male, 20s or 30s, thin build, blue t-shirt and jeans, driving a blue Toyota pickup with a camper shell and a possible license plate of 141249 objected, apparently, and displayed a black pistol.
No shots were fired and no one was injured during the encounter.
The truck was last seen on Rheem Boulevard – heading toward Orinda.
Idyllic Moraga……no longer…coyotes now supplanted by another breed of scavenger
Thank you, Jeff, for using “supplanted.” But, yes, a critter with a different type of bite. Glad no one hurt…
In times past, we woulda just “had words” over an intrusion like that.
Scavengers were out because people were putting out things for the bulk trash/recycling pickup 3 days later. It happens twice a year. People should wait until the weekend is over if they have a problem with letting the scavengers have their castoffs.
