• March 1: Police responded to an address on Piney Way where a citizen told them he’d had a penny delivered to his residence and when he got home, found the package ripped open and the penny missing. No word on what the loss was, though 1¢ might be a likely guess.

• March 1: Police contacted a suspicious subject in the 400 block of Quintana. Logs indicated the 30-year-old rascal had five misdemeanor arrest warrants and was placed under arrest. While being frisked, officers reportedly found suspected illegal drugs and he’s in a world of hurt now.

• Note: 

The police logs for the week of Feb. 13-20 were not available for our last edition. We got them last week are running them in this issue.

• Feb. 19: Police contacted a suspicious subject somewhere on Main Street at some undisclosed time. The 52-year-old scofflaw had a felony warrant and was arrested. Low and behold he also allegedly had a crack pipe in his pocket (or hidden somewhere), and was also charged with suspicion of possession drug paraphernalia.

• Feb. 19: Police responded to Albertson’s on Quintana after they reported a persona non grata was inside the store, apparently after previously being 86’d. Police contacted the interloper who was arrested on a pair of bench warrants and hauled to the hoosegow, where, drat the luck, they allegedly found illegal drugs in her possession and added a charge of suspicion of bringing drugs into jail, which while it might sound like a fine way to do time, isn’t allowed.

• Feb. 19: Police responded to the 400 block of Morro Cove Rd., for a disturbance. Logs indicated they discovered an apparent husband-wife team having a raucous row. Logs indicated the wife, 39, was nicked for suspicion of battery, making criminal threats and being lubricated in public. The husband, 43, was arrested for suspicion of battery, and being toddy stricken in public. Both were checked into the Parkinson Plaza. Adding perhaps a bit of insult, their vehicle was towed away for an expired registration.

• Feb. 18: Police responded to a bank on Morro Bay Boulevard for a report of a fraudulent bank account withdrawal, but never fear Uncle Joe will no doubt bail them out.

• Feb. 17: Police responded to Motel 6 for a report of a domestic dustup in progress. Logs indicated they arrested somebody (not who) on suspicion of inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or co-habitant; child abuse; false imprisonment — kidnapping/abduction; and destroying a cell phone that someone, presumably the victim, was using to call 9-1-1.

• Feb. 17: Police responded at an undisclosed time to an unnamed location on Quintana Road for a traffic collision of some undisclosed nature.

• Feb. 16: Police responded to a disturbance at 1:25 p.m. in the 1700 block of Embarcadero. Logs indicated some unhappy camper was having a bit of a kerfuffle. He was taken to County Mental Health for a 72-hour timeout.

• Feb. 15: Police responded at an undisclosed time to an undisclosed location of Quintana Road for an injury car accident. Logs didn’t say who was involved, who was injured, who was at fault, nor much of anything else frankly.

• Feb. 15: Police responded at an undisclosed time to somewhere on Atascadero Rd.where they took an apparently troubled juvenile boy or girl into custody for a 72-hour mental health hold. No word on whether this was at the high school, but that might be the way to bet.

• Feb. 15: Police contacted a bothersome woman, 39, on Quintana Road making a pest of herself. She got benched for three bench warrants.

• Feb. 15: Police responded to an undisclosed location on Atascadero Road for a reported case of someone committing statutory rape, as in having sexual relations with someone more than 3-years their junior.
