A resident on the 300 block of West 23rd Street told police at 7:36 a.m. that she believed her neighbor was growing marijuana on the front porch. The neighbor couldn’t see the plants but thought she could smell their aroma. There was an older dog in the backyard that the neighbor also wanted checked. No marijuana was found on the porch by officers.

Tracy police received 160 calls for service Monday, May 13. The following is a sample of those reports.

11:30 a.m.: A student at Kimball High School, 3200 Jaguar Run, told a staff member that he “wanted to instruct her on his ‘penis,’” according to the log. He was sent to the office and “admonished in length” about violating the school district’s educational code regarding sexual harassment. The staff member requested only that the student be verbally disciplined. His parents were notified about the incident.

3:48 p.m.: Police responded to Save Mart Supermarkets, 1950 W. 11th St., where a woman’s purse was allegedly stolen. The victim said she put the purse down in the aisle to pick up a case of water, and it was gone when she went to retrieve it. Officers took a report on the incident.

6:57 p.m.: A customer at Walmart, 3010 W. Grant Line Road, allegedly had her purse stolen from her cart while shopping. She didn’t know when it was stolen, but she was able to find it about 15 minutes after realizing it was gone. She had $15 stolen from the purse.

9:01 p.m.: Officers arrested a 23-year-old man during a pedestrian stop in the area of Holly Drive and Portola Way for possession of a controlled substance.

When I go shopping I always look for basket with safety buckle. I will wrap the belt around stamp of purse and clip it so that way they can't just walk by and take it they have to pull harder and I should be able to see them.

I must say that things have certainly changed since I was in school. Back then we would just bring in a puppy for show & tell.

"...about violating the school district’s educational code regarding sexual harassment."

A memo was subsequently issued removing the words 'admonishing' and 'in length' in the same sentence and replaced with the term 'method acting'.

Neighbor reports aroma of marijuana:

"There was an older dog in the backyard that the neighbor also wanted checked. No marijuana was found on the porch by officers"

However friends and neighbors told Animal Control, 'the old dog' only responds to the name "Cannabis" and loves brownies.

Are you kidding… the school really put out "Admonished in length," without proof reading. This is too obvious, it sounds as if someone was having a little fun at the students shortcomings.
