A husband and wife couple taking a coffee break in their car behind Orchard Supply Hardware at 1975 W. 11th St. caused employees to be worried at 6:18 p.m., on Thursday, April 12. The employees called police about a suspicious car and told them it was common for people to steal items and run out of the emergency doors. Police talked to the couple, who said they came out to take a break away from a lot of visiting family members.

Tracy police received 147 calls for service on Thursday, April 12. The following is a sampling of those calls.

12:12 a.m.: Police arrested two men, ages 34 and 33, for drug-related charges following a traffic stop near Eaton and Wilson avenues.

1:04 a.m.: A number of traffic cones placed in front of the entrances to Westgate development near Lammers Road and Westgate Drive is believed to be a prank. Callers told police they could not enter the development and there was no indication of a construction project.

2:51 a.m.: A man was seen in a backyard carrying a rifle on the 1800 block of East Street. The resident told police the man was in his backyard and he was afraid to look out again to see if he was still there. Police checked and found no one. The resident called back at 3:39 a.m. and he said the man had returned. He said he saw three men looking over his fence and they all appeared to be carrying air-soft guns. He said he then heard them on his roof and sitting on the swing set in the yard behind his. Police checked and found no one.

4:11 a.m.: Two callers reported hearing five gunshots near Palm Circle and Lincoln Boulevard.

The owner said he didn’t want to prosecute, but the suspect reportedly had a black eye from the altercation. Police caught the 37-year-old man and booked him into San Joaquin County Jail in French Camp.

You know you’re drinking too much coffee when…

You ski uphill.

You just completed another sweater and you don't know how to knit.

You have to watch videos in fast-forward.

Your eyes stay open when you sneeze.

Your T-shirt says, "Decaffeinated coffee is the devil's blend."

Cocaine is a downer.

Your only source of nutrition comes from "Sweet & Low."

You don't sweat, you percolate.

Charles Manson thinks you need to calm down.

Instant coffee takes too long.

You'd be willing to spend time in a Turkish prison.

You go to sleep just so you can wake up and smell the coffee.

You name your cats "Cream" and "Sugar."
