At 10:07 p.m., a woman’s husband saw two people trying to break into her truck while it was parked on the 700 block of Greenford Court. The guys took off, and the caller’s daughter drove away trying to find the suspects. Police responded to the area around the Summergate apartment complex and looked for the suspects, who hopped several fences near Vallerand Road behind the SaveMart shopping center to escape the search.

Tracy police received 171 calls for service Thursday, Oct. 7, including these reports.



12:31 a.m.: A resident on the 2900 block of Reyes Lane told police there was someone knocking on the side of the house, though no one was there when it was checked out.

3:41 a.m.: Two men parked inside a pickup on the 1900 block of Maplegrove Lane worried a caller.

8:22 a.m.: A woman was passed out at Denny’s, 1420 N. Tracy Blvd. She later told medics that she had taken a Soma and might have been raped, but didn’t know where and when. She was arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property.

10:25 a.m.: Police stopped a motorcycle rider who did a “wheelie” through the intersection of Grant Line and Corral Hollow roads.

11 a.m.: A woman at Kemper CPA Group, 929 N. Central Ave., told police someone had damaged her car before driving away.

11:50 a.m.: An order of French fries was stolen from McDonald’s, 1820 W. 11th St. The woman was cited by police.

11:59 a.m.: A woman claimed that she scared off two men trespassing in her backyard on the 400 block of Rockingham Court.

1:39 p.m.: A marijuana grow operation was reported on the 4300 block of Famoso Lane. The location was cleared by police, however.

1:57 p.m.: A driver told police that a teenager who had just been let out of Duncan-Russell School had vandalized his car on the 200 block of West 23rd Street while the kid was running. The student, however, was running from a loose dog that had chased after him. Police told the driver that it was a civil matter, because his car was “vandalized” while the student was running from an unrestrained dog.

3:38 p.m.: A “gang fight” was reported in front of Mi Ranchito market, 215 N. Central Ave. Police searched the area and made one arrest on an outstanding warrant.

5:37 p.m.: A student said his sister was beaten up at Tracy High School, 315 E. 11th St., earlier in the day.

6:10 p.m.: A woman had more than $1,000 stolen from her purse while she was visiting a house near 11th Street and Central Avenue.

"1:39 p.m.: A marijuana grow operation was reported on the 4300 block of Famoso Lane. The location was cleared by police, however."

["however," cont.]

Which from this day forward will be known in the archives as 'The Famoso Green Ops'.

"1:57 p.m.: A driver told police that a teenager who had just been let out of Duncan-Russell School had vandalized his car on the 200 block of West 23rd Street while the kid was running. The student, however, was running from a loose dog that had chased after him. Police told the driver that it was a civil matter, because his car was “vandalized” while the student was running from an unrestrained dog."

...so the owner of the "unrestrained dog" is responsible for the kid who ran while "vandalizing" the caller's car?

Apparently she couldn't wait around for the 'All American Hamburgler Combo' for just $2.09.
