New Monterey Police Blotter – September 2008

While In New York, P.G. Man Turns Into Stupid

(Journal News, LoHud.com, New York)

Police didn’t do anything when Michael Benjamin Harbert informed a cop that “my cell phone is broken,” after he apparently smashed it to the sidewalk on Post Road about 3 a.m. Saturday.

But they arrested him a moment later, they said, when he threw a bottle at a storefront window, charging the 22-year-old Pacific Grove, Calif., man with a disorderly conduct violation.

Harbert wasn’t finished though, and neither were police.

At 4 a.m., a report notes, Harbert was handcuffed to a railing in the booking area at police headquarters when he reached down with his free hand and pulled the faceplate off of an electric socket, exposing the bare wires.

He was charged with fourth-degree criminal mischief, a misdemeanor, and placed in a holding cell.

Harbert was charged with a second mischief count less than an hour later, when police said he smashed a fluorescent light tube in the holding cell.

End Of P.G. Fire Department?

PG FIRE

The council has before it a resolution approving a contract between the two cities for fire service effective Dec. 16 that resulted from three years of feasibility studies of a merger, according to Pacific Grove Fire Chief Andrew Miller.

Monterey, in general, pays more in salary for similar fire department work, he said, but Pacific Grove will save costs because fewer firefighters would be required at its station and the combined department would be able to draw resources from three fire stations in Monterey.

Should have happened years ago – about the time of the Pebble Beach fire on Huckleberry Hill.

Why Schools Are Failing

Stupid people are put in charge . .

The former principal of Greenfield Elementary School was charged Friday with possession of child pornography, possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia, animal neglect and resisting a peace officer.

(Raul) Herrera happened to arrive home during the search and an officer approached him. Herrera made a move and the officer believed was reaching for a gun, which led to a short struggle, according to police reports. Officers allegedly found a small amount of cocaine in one of Herrera’s socks.

Only 5 Shopping Days Left

Before that sales tax increase goes into effect. Is there any place in P.G. to buy something (that’s not ‘art’ or rusty garden decor)?

The sales tax rate in Pacifier Grove will increase by a full percent to 8.25 percent effective Oct. 1, according to the state Board of Equalization. City voters approved the sales tax hike in the June primary election.

Industrial Accident – Construction Worker Falls 20 feet.

According to assistant fire chief Dave Brown, emergency crews were dispatched to the home on Balboa Avenue shortly before 6 p.m. Sept. 18.

“He was doing some painting or plastering,” Brown said. “He was working on top of a ladder and fell off,” landing on a plywood floor.

20 feet high on a ladder? That’s unsafe, next time use a scaffold.

Ruelas Claims Evidence Missing

Grasping..

A Soledad man charged in the 1997 slaying of a Peninsula youth told a judge Thursday that his defense has been hampered by the release of evidence by the Pacific Grove Police Department.
(Angel) Ruelas objected Thursday that there was no remedy for him to pursue sanctions against the police department for his inability to have the car tested for his defense.

He alleged that the police department and FBI missed some “basic tire impressions” at the scene of the crime.

“What else did they miss?” he said.

Rock Stacking In Spanish Bay

A new fad has started in Pebble Beach — stacking rocks.

While most of the beach at Spanish Bay is covered in white sand and light shrubbery, a stretch of a little more than 100 yards is covered with hundreds of columns of stacked rocks, with some columns standing more than 5 feet tall. And they are arranged with the grace of a Japanese Zen garden.

Well, when the split level is being foreclosed, the bimmer’s been repossessed, PG&E has disconnected for non payment and you are no longer allowed at MPCC, not much else to do but stack rocks.
