It really was Friday the 13th for one unlucky motorist. At 8:47 a.m. Friday Dec. 13, a caller reported a traffic accident near the cross streets of Verdugo Street and Camino Capistrano. A white Nissan and a gray Honda had collided in front of a local movie theater. Deputies arrived only to discover one of the motorists was allegedly driving drunk.  A 42-year-old man was arrested and has since been released from jail.


At 11:49 a.m. Thursday Dec. 12, deputies received a call about an unknown person making threats in the 33900 block of Doheny Park Road. Costco had received threats from an unidentified person inside the store.

At 4:09 p.m. Thursday Dec. 12, someone called to report a disturbance in the 26800 block of Ortega Highway. An unknown person was disturbing pedestrians. When deputies arrived, the perpetrator was gone.

At 10:12 a.m. Friday Dec. 13, a worried caller reported a suspicious person near the cross streets of Stonehill Drive and Camino Capistrano. The caller said a suspicious man was walking along the train tracks.

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.
