At 9:30 a.m., a clearly intoxicated man, roughly 60 years old, was trying to purchase more alcohol at the Marina Market liquor store but was denied, so in protest he refused to leave the store. The early bird gets the worm.
A car parked in the middle of Escobar Street and Bay View Drive had a woman in the driver seat who was described as “tweaking,” because of course she was. The woman and car were seen at 11:31 a.m.
A woman in a purple dress did some shopping at the Dollar Tree on Arnold Drive around 3 p.m. but neglected to pay for her items: make up and energy pills. So be on the lookout for an energetic pretty lady.

A woman was possibly taking a bath in the fountain in the City Hall plaza around 2 p.m. She had either with or on her an all black outfit.

At 10 till 11 a.m., a man wearing hospital scrub pants and a hospital identification bracelet was on Alhambra Avenue near Virginia Hills Drive wandering in and out of traffic and alternating taking his shirt off and putting it back on. I hope he went with on.
