A safe containing medical records, passports and jewelry was reportedly stolen Friday, April 19, from a home on the 4200 block of Flint Lane.

A woman who lives in the house told police at 2:29 p.m. that her husband received an email alert that the home had been broken into. She also said he had pictures on his phone of two men who allegedly stole the safe.

Both are described by the police log as white, in their 20s, with dark shoulder-length hair. One reportedly was in a dark baseball cap, a pale T-shirt, black jeans and red or pink socks. The other reportedly wore a light-colored baseball cap, a pale T-shirt with some kind of printing on the back, and blue jeans.

Police are expected to file a report.

Tracy police received 638 calls for service Thursday, April 18, to Sunday, April 21. The following is a sample of those calls.

12:33 a.m.: Police were told that a woman had either jumped, fallen or was thrown from a third-story window at the Waterstone Apartments, 1951 Middlefield Drive. At least two callers said a man yelled at the woman while she was on the ground, and drove away at a high rate of speed in a silver Infiniti, possibly to go to a hospital. The car was last seen driving south on Corral Hollow Road toward Interstate 580. Police advised hospitals in San Joaquin and Alameda counties to be on the lookout for a woman matching her description, and had Oakland police visit the parents of the woman to whom the Infinity was registered. Police were unable to track them by “pinging” their cell phones. The man and woman were not found.

9:10 p.m.: A woman told police she believed her landlord took her service dog when she was not home on the 1900 block of Clearbrook Court. She said he texted her that he didn’t want her dog in her room when she was not home, and when she returned the dog was gone. Another roommate reportedly told police she saw the landlord go into the caller’s room and take the dog. Police are investigating.
