Made for television: Officers on patrol Dec. 25 saw a car going the wrong way down a one-way street. They performed a traffic stop and discovered that the driver did not have a valid driver’s license and had the wrong license plates on the vehicle. The officers were required to tow the vehicle. While doing an inventory of the items inside the vehicle for the tow, the officers noticed a Visio flat-screen television. One officer had been on scene and taken an earlier report of a burglary in which a Visio flat-screen television was stolen. The officers connected the cases, and the television was returned to its rightful owner. The officers also found computer equipment that belonged to another victim of another burglary. The suspect was already on probation for burglary.

A woman told the officers that her ex-boyfriend had barged into her apartment while she was entertaining a few friends. The ex-boyfriend locked the victim and her friends inside the bathroom while he trashed the apartment, breaking several valuable items. The officers arrived quickly and saw the ex-boyfriend and his accomplice flee the scene in their vehicle. The officers broadcast the vehicle description to other units. Officers located the vehicle and the fleeing occupants. Both suspects were booked and transported to County Jail.

Elbow room: On the 2800 block of California Street, a business owner saw that his front door was open at 7:30 a.m. Jan. 1. He alerted an employee of the business next door and asked him to keep an eye on the front door while he went to check the inside. As the owner was searching the office, a suspect ran out from one of the rooms. The owner then threw an elbow at the suspect, striking him in the nose. The suspect fell to the floor, got up and ran out the front door. The suspect got on a bicycle that had been parked in front and rode east on California.
