At 11:06 a.m. Monday, Dec. 23, deputies received a call about a traffic hazard at Paseo del Puerto and Avenida California. A caller said a silver or gray Honda and a Toyota sedan were parked in a no-parking zone. Inside the Toyota was a box marked “ammo.”


At 1:13 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 22, a disturbance was reported in the 27300 block of Via Priorato. Deputies arrived and arrested a 20-year-old male. A female victim was transported back home.

At 11:19 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 22, a father lost his daughter at a store in the 33900 block of Doheny Park Road. Deputies met the manager at the front of the store and conducted a walk-through. The child was returned to her father.

At 3:49 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 22, the first of two calls came in about an RV that was blocking visibility to drivers on Camino La Ronda near La Novia Avenue. The RV was ticketed and towed within the hour.

These are selected reports from the San Juan Capistrano Police Dispatch Services log throughout the past few days. The calls represent what was told to a sheriff's deputy in the field by the radio dispatcher. No presumption of criminal guilt or affiliation should be drawn from the information provided.

Lucky caller. You know how expensive ammo is?

What is illegal about a box of ammo? The caller should be taught what is illegal, and what it means to be hyper vigilante. I have lots of boxes marked ammo, there is nothing illegal about it.
