Police responded to a burglary report at a residence on the 600 block of Silvertail Place at 1:03 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7.

According to a neighbor, a male was seen entering the backyard through a fence door and then entering the house through the garage side door.

A woman was also seen entering the garage, and several voices could be heard, but it was unclear how many people were inside.

When officers arrived, they made contact with several people in front of the house who were relatives of the homeowner.

Tracy police received 150 calls for service Wednesday, Nov. 7. The following is a sampling of those calls.

2:17 a.m.: A resident on the 300 block of Rodeo Way reported that he placed a couple of items inside his truck and then went into his home. When he returned five minutes later, it appeared that someone had rummaged through the center console of the truck. He requested extra patrols by police in the area.

10:02 a.m.: Officers spoke with students at Kimball High School, 3200 Jaguar Run, about the stepfather of a student threatening harm against another student.

He was described as being Latino and about 15 years old. The vehicle was towed, and police are expected to file a report.
