JUST A REMINDER:  Schools are out for summer session.  Please pay extra attention when driving around parks and playgrounds as children will be out all hours of the day.

Recently, a flyer was distributed to the community regarding scams targeting the monolingual Chinese.  These scams involve telling the victim that an evil spirit is following them.  They will ask the victim to bring valuables to pray over as an offering to the spirit. They will return to the victim what is believed to be their valuables. They will ask the victim not to look at their valuables for a day.  When the victim later checks their valuables, they find that the valuables were not returned by the suspects.

We urge all person(s) confronted with this scam to call 911 as this is a crime in progress.  By contacting 911, you greatly increase the chance of catching the suspect(s) so that the police can make an arrest.  If someone approaches you with this scam, decline their help, call 911 immediately and report it to the police.  Be a good witness.  Obtain a description of the suspect(s) and/or vehicles they are driving.

9:45am       1600 Blk Valencia                   Disturbing the Peace
Ingleside patrol officer Morrow was dispatched to investigate a report of loud music. When he arrived, he found a suspicious person with a boom box on a chair playing music.  The sound was so loud that Officer Morrow could easily hear it in his patrol car parked in the center of the street. Officer Morrow asked the suspect to please turn down the music. The man pretended not to hear the request by responding “What”? Officer Morrow then repeated the request, and the man again responded, “What?”.  The officer then asked the suspect a third time and the man, acknowledging the request, said “No, I’m not turning it down.”  Sgt. Garrick arrived to assist Officer Morrow with the situation. Sgt. Garrick explained to the subject the loud music ordinance and asked him to turn down the volume. Again, the subject refused, and Sgt. Garrick directed Officer Morrow to issue him a citation for “Disturbing the Peace”. Report number: 130506158
