Police were unable to locate a man suspected of burglarizing a Tracy business on Monday, April 22.

Officers tried to a stop a Latino man around 12:45 a.m. in the area of Larch Road and Holly Drive, but the man jumped off his bicycle and began to run.

The man jumped several fences and was suspected of hiding on the roof of an office complex in the area. However, a search of the roof for the man using a fire department ladder truck was unsuccessful.

Police located an unidentified business that the man was believed to have burglarized. A back window was found broken and a $40 shredder was missing, the police log states.

A bicycle believed to have belonged to the man was taken as evidence.

Tracy police received 177 calls for service Monday, April 24. The following is a sample of those calls.

7:36 a.m.: Officers responded to Freiler Elementary School, 2421 W. Lowell Ave., where a parent reported an older man was sitting on a bike rack talking to children. The man was dropping off his granddaughter at the school.

REMEMBER WHEN Tracy used to be a nice place to live and the monkey's stayed at the zoo in Oakland.

Thank you, Mechanicswifey. Someone needed to say something. As a pasty white guy engaged to the most beautiful African American woman I've ever met, this "gentleman's" posts offend me every time I read them. PublicCitizen, no words any of us will tell you will ever change your mind, but I will pray for you, and for your children (if you have any), that they don't grow up to follow in your closed-minded racist ways.

Perhaps enough public ridicule over your wildly inappropriate tripe will force you to crawl back under the rock from whence you came. Good evening to you, sir/madam.

"Anyone wanting to dispose of documents can bring..."


Look for a guy wanting to trade a shredder for a bicycle;)
