Police Blotter: Feb. 17-23, 2016

At 10 a.m., a 35-year-old man kept ringing the doorbell over and over at the Berrellesa Palms Apartments on Berrellesa Street. The man said he wouldn’t leave until the police came.

An hour and a half later, at the Taco Bell on Arnold Drive, a man described as a caucasian 40-year-old was drinking inside the restaurant causing a disturbance, and like the doorbell ringer earlier in the morning, he refused to leave.

Near 3 o’clock a BNSF train came to a complete stop after the conductor and engineer believed the train had struck a person that was standing on the tracks in the Glen Frazier area. However, upon inspection, nobody alive or dead was found, according to Lena Kent of BNSF. After 30 minutes, the train continued on.

The individual on the tracks later turned themselves in to the police with no injuries, denying medical attention.

Around 9:30 p.m., a 15- to 16-year-old girl in red flannel pajama bottoms was seen sobbing at the intersection of Estudillo Street and Mellus Street.

At 7:30 a.m., it was reported an employee that was to be terminated threatened to come back to their job site with a gun. The person allegedly made threats and had a history of being volatile.

Three hours later, a man wearing a black beanie and brown jacket was on Alhambra Avenue near Warren Street, spitting on things and visibly drunk.

Around 12:20 p.m., a black adult male wearing a black hoodie and sweatpants was reported to have been dancing and doing cartwheels in the parking lot of the law offices of Currington & Keefe on Court Street.

Later at 2 p.m., two adult white males, described as “political people,” were refusing to leave the Safeway on Alhambra Avenue, even after being asked to do so twice.

At 3 p.m., a man reported that his ex-girlfriend had covered his car with fish; any other damage was unknown. This apparently has been an ongoing problem.

At 5:22 p.m., a white couple had been spotted on the roof of what was Victoria’s Cafe on Main Street.

Monday, Feb. 22
At 10:30 a.m., an adult white male was wearing a grey flannel shirt and sweatpants around his ankles, exposing himself to the commuters leaving Martinez from the Amtrak Station. This is why I bike to work.

A half hour past noon, three men came into the AT&T store where the Blockbuster used to be and stole two iPhone 6Ss. I am unsure how that loot will be split equally among the thieves.

Around 4:40 p.m., an adult white male in his 20s was seen on the train trestle bridge that goes over Alhambra Avenue near Franklin Canyon Road.

Tuesday, Feb. 23
At 4:45 p.m., an older, heavyset man wearing camouflage pants was at the Quik Stop Market on Alhambra Avenue asking people if they wanted to buy drugs from him.
