The crime blotter is compiled from public record and is not confirmed by Martinez Police or any other party unless otherwise stated. Some accounts may be unfounded.

Wednesday, Sept. 7
A woman in a SpongeBob SquarePants backpack was breaking glass onto Ferry Street just before 1 a.m.

A 50-year-old man with long grey hair took a tall can of beer without properly exchanging money for it at the Golden Vintage liquor store on Alhambra and Shell avenues around 11 a.m.

Roughly 10 minutes later, a loot said to be cans of alcohol was taken by a 25-year-old at the Valley Convenient Mart on Alhambra Avenue.

A bottle of alcohol was taken at 12:14 p.m. from Nob Hill Foods by another 25-year-old.If these three alcohol robberies were related, this could be the biggest heist in Martinez history.

At 5:10 p.m. two men were reportedly having an argument across the street from Taco Bell on Arnold Drive.

Thursday, Sept. 8
Two women broke something inside Main Street Treasures on Main Street and refused to pay for it. The incident occurred around 1 p.m.

A man who was thought to have stolen chips Wednesday came back and stole beer today from the Marina Market at 1:35 p.m.

A group of three boys were in front of Safeway acting rudely toward elderly patrons at 5:30 p.m.

Friday, Sept. 9
A woman reported that her car was stolen overnight. She believed the thief used a slim jim to do the crime. I had no idea Slim Jims could help in a car theft.

A woman in a black crop top was seen dancing and lifting said top at Susana Street Park at 11:50 a.m.

Saturday, Sept. 10
A dog barked from around midnight to 2:30 a.m.

A Berrellesa Street resident reported that the drug dealer outside their home was screaming at 4 p.m.

At 11:07 p.m., a child was heard screaming in the Maywood Lane area. No words, just screaming. Probably unrelated to drug dealer.

Sunday, Sept. 11
Around lunchtime, a man was publicly drinking beer and yelling near the Starbucks on Main Street. This definitely was not me.

A delivery driver was yelled at for speeding on Freda Court. He then took off his shirt and challenged the person who yelled to a fight. This happened a 3:48 p.m.

A man in a backpack was staggering round in the intersection of Pine Street and Vista Way at 11:09 p.m.

Monday, Sept. 12
A man with a small white dog was kneeling down while urinating on the corner of Alhambra Avenue and F street at 6:37 p.m. Probably just teaching the dog proper technique.

Tuesday, Sept. 13
At some point between the hours of midnight and 5 a.m., a car with a Bernie Sanders sticker on the rear bumper was stolen from Monterey Avenue. Those Clinton supporters are at it again.

A blue BMW was taking up two parking spots on Escobar Street at 8:46 a.m.

Around 1:30 a woman in the Walgreens on Alhambra Avenue had items she lifted confiscated by employees, but then proceeded to take more things.

A man in a grey shirt was drinking tequila on the path behind the Westaire neighborhood at 3:21 p.m.

A Glacier Drive resident reported they have been discovering pre-made sandwiches in their backyard.
Unknown to them is how they are getting there and who is putting them there.
