Morro Bay

• Aug. 5: Police contacted a model citizen at 10 p.m. in the Lila Keiser Park and homeless non-shelter. Logs indicated the fellow was cited and released for suspicion of possessing illegal drugs and paraphernalia, as he was apparently not worth to gas to take to jail.

Aug. 4: Police contacted a suspicious woman at 9:20 a.m. in Lila Keiser Park and cited her for suspicion of loitering… in a public park. Police also confiscated two bicycles they found in the park, which means someone will have to go steal another one. In an unrelated matter, at 9 a.m. someone in the 200 block of Atascadero Rd., reported his or her mountain bike was stolen. Caze sol-ved? Perhaps…though logs indicated “insufficient evidence.”

The belle of the ball, 67, was arrested for a warrant and for being schnockered.

• July 30: A woman, 56, was contacted at 7:41 p.m. in the 700 block of Morro Bay Blvd., and was cited and released on a bench warrant. Which apparently didn’t sit well with a fellow at that location.

• July 27: Someone in the 900 block of Embarcadero reported her purse was stolen; no doubt a case of exacting a tourist tax.

• July 27: Police were called at 2:30 a.m. to Albertson’s after someone reported hearing a woman yelling. Officers found her in the bushes behind the store. Naturally, she had a warrant and got nicked, no doubt just to shut her up.

• July 25: Police responded down by the launch ramp on Embarcadero at 5:39 p.m. where they arrested an apparent squatter, 37, for suspicion of unlawfully entering a residence, giving police a fake name, resisting arrest, and being UTI on drugs, which explains a lot.

One alleged gaseous thief was arrested for being under the influence, no doubt sniffing gas.

• Aug. 6: Some Moon Over My Hammy hanging out in Denny’s appeared to be high on something after he was talking to himself saying something about the business taking his card!?! It seems he had left an EBT card at the location and wanted to pick it up. It also seems he still owed them money.

• Aug. 6: A man on the 1200 block of Price refused to leave a residence. The caller said that they had met the guy the night prior, and he had stayed. The next day, when he “got crazy” they tried to kick him out. He did end up going outside and was warned about trespassing. This is why you shouldn’t invite strays to spend the night.

Whatever they were holding turned out to have something to do with their bikes. Later a guy in the bathroom for 5 minutes at the Five Cities Shell station refused to come out. He was associated with the cyclist on the bridge. He came out before police arrived and they all said that they would leave the area, for real this time.

• Aug. 5: A woman, who clearly doesn’t know a good thing when it is right in front her, got booted from Rite Aid after she was caught opening packages to steal items.

She was advised against trespassing.
