Martinez Police Blotter: March 22-28, 2017

Wednesday, March 22
At 1:11 a.m., a couple was heard yelling at each other outside an apartment complex on Ferry Street.

Just before 4 a.m., a big tree reportedly fell onto two vehicles on Canyon Way. I thought it was spring.

At 6:28 a.m., a woman in a brown leather jacket was trespassing and refusing to leave the Starbucks on Main Street. She was admonished by a manager.

Around 11:30 a.m., a man in a blue jumpsuit was observed drinking a “giant” bottle of vodka in front of the Launderland laundromat on Alhambra Avenue.

At 6:20 p.m., a man wearing a blue shirt around his head, a white shirt around his torso and no pants around his legs was seen in the parking lot of the Quik Stop parking lot on Alhambra Avenue.

Around 7:20 p.m., a young woman in a multi colored hoodie attempted to steal the tip jar and then unplugged all of the machines inside the Subway sandwich shop on Alhambra Avenue.

Just after midnight, a bearded man carrying a can was walking/wobbling in the roadway Northbound on Alhambra Avenue near the John Muir home.
Two juveniles were harassing passersby in the area of Ferry Street and Main Street at 9:22 a.m. Dang teenagers these days.

A tall woman was throwing things and “tearing up the office” at the County Clerk, Recorder and Elections office on Escobar Street at 9:23 a.m. She was arrested on multiple charges.

A woman of average height was yelling and refusing to leave Wal-Mart at 1:23 p.m. There was probably a sale on something exciting, like copy paper.

A man wearing all black clothes walked into Walgreens and stole a bottle of wine at 2:37 p.m. When confronted, he would not stop walking South on Alhambra Avenue.

Less than half an hour later, a man in a gray sweatshirt walked into Nob Hill and stole some alcohol. Wow. Criminals sure are thirsty.

A car driving down Brown Street near Cappy Ricks Park was pelted with lemons that were thrown by juveniles. The possible reenactment of that scene from Napoleon Dynamite where Napoleon also throws citrus at Uncle Rico’s van happened at 3:38 p.m.

Another two bottles of alcohol were stolen, but this time from the Virginia Hills Safeway at 10:47 p.m., and this time by a woman.

Friday, March 24
Around 6 p.m., a woman went into the stock room of the Rite Aid, dropped her red pants and urinated on the floor. There’s a rite way of doing things and then there’s the way she’s doing it.

A red jacketed person was seen spray painting the walkway behind the Westaire neighborhood at 7:10 p.m.

Saturday, March 25
At 9:17 a.m., a man in a scarf was praying toward the sky and stretching near the laundry room of the Muir Creek Apartments on Morello Avenue.

At 2:02 p.m., a man in a red shirt was wobbling and dancing down Eastgate Lane with his pants around his ankles while stopping occasionally to spit on rocks.

At 5:30 p.m., a large metal door was found in the middle of Olympic Drive, creating a road hazard. Why was it there? Who put it out? Where does it lead? Is it the door from Monsters Inc? Is there a window road hazard on some other street?

A loud party was reported near Tahoe Drive at 11:48 p.m.

Sunday, March 26
At 12:22 a.m., it sounded like a large gathering was taking place in a Foster Street apartment.

A Huntridge Court resident reportedly found pamphlets left on their doorstep around 2 p.m. Some of them said to be destroyed if found.

A part of an ongoing problem, a Wal-Mart diesel truck was lost and possibly stuck on Westaire Boulevard near 7 p.m., because the driver assumed the loading dock may have been by the Westaire neighborhood pool.

At 9:28 p.m., a woman wearing a black jacket over a gray hoodie loaded up a shopping cart and then attempted to exit Safeway without seeing a checkout clerk first. When confronted, she then started wandering around the store still holding onto the cart. Maybe she thought it was an Amazon Go store.

Monday, March 27
A group of people were allegedly being loud and cursing at each other at Rankin Park near 7 p.m.

Tuesday, March 28
A man with blond hair, blue eyes and a beard, wearing a jumpsuit that has the name “Francisco” written on it, was screaming and shouting inside Wal-Mart at 7:19 a.m. One of the things he shouted was that he was just released from jail, which explains why he also stole a bottle of Jack Daniels.
