Boy, we have some strange reports coming into our local police agencies!
Take this one from Mission Viejo . A couple calls in to report a robbery in progress. But there is no robbery in progress. It appears to be (allegedly) a drug-induced hallucination. The couple was arrested under the suspicion of drug use.
Here’s another report that didn’t go the way the caller expected. Someone calling from a San Clemente Denny’s reported a man harassing an intoxicated young woman and suspected it may be a date-rape situation. Instead, .
Callers got this one wrong, too. A woman, supposedly shirtless and screaming from a car prompted passers-by in Rancho Santa Margarita to call 9-1-1 Saturday. Turns out the woman did have a shirt on and she was wailing because of a recent death in the family.
We’d say it’s still wise to call the authorities if you think you see a shirtless woman screaming from a car. On the other hand, maybe this wasn’t worth a call? Over in Aliso Viejo, someone called the sheriff’s department to complain about a “mean message” on Facebook.
The San Juan Capistrano Patch sheriff’s blotter is posted Tuesdays. Stay tuned!
