At 6:35 a.m. a spoon with heroin in it was found in the bathroom of the downtown Starbucks alongside the cap to a hypodermic needle. I guess everyone has their own reasons to be addicted to Starbucks.
An hour and a half later, a 50-year-old man with a cane, wearing flannel pajama bottoms, was arrested for panhandling and refusing to leave the Marina Market on Escobar Street.
Near 10:30 p.m., an adult white male wearing a baseball cap and blue backpack was refusing to leave the station because he was “looking for his crack pipe.” He should check the lost and found.

At 7:46 a.m., an older man with a grey beard was seen pushing a shopping cart past the Public Storage on Arnold Drive and then urinating inside the building next door.
Around 4:30 p.m. a male subject was seen suspiciously taking pictures of an oil tanker train car on Marina Vista Avenue.

An hour and a half past midnight, a pizza delivery man was harassed by three intoxicated men. After the delivery boy was threatened, he heroically acted as if he was armed to get the three harassers to back off and allow him to leave.

My heart was broken this day, which isn’t a crime, but it should be. Happy Valentine’s Day Karen.

At 11:40 a.m., a man accompanied by two juveniles was riding a motor bike around on the large field at the Marina.

At 11:28 a.m., outside the Family Law Center on Pine Street, a woman slammed her car door into her husband’s car and spat on it. “What are you doing?” the husband asked, but he had to dive out of the way of her car as she drove towards him and then left.
Around 2:30 p.m., a white male in his 20s was aggressively petitioning patrons of Safeway on Alhambra Avenue. After being asked to leave, he declared that it was his First Amendment right to be there.
At the same location five and a half hours later, a 25-year-old white male was loitering inside the store and when asked to leave, he “five-finger-discounted” a bottle of alcohol and walked outside.
