Ever since a writer from Watsonville commented on getting stopped by our police I’ve paid more attention to that town that I can’t for the life of me credit with anything but gang crimes. This is one that has nothing to do with gangs, and comes from good old W’ville
Watsonville resident Laurence Roscoe Gregory, 65, was fighting with the clerk because he believed his tickets were winners, when in fact they were not, according to Sgt. Saul Gonzalez. The officer talked with Gregory outside the store, located on the 100 block of East Lake Avenue, around 8 a.m. and explained that Gregory hadn’t won.
Then the officer asked Gregory, who was wearing “bulky” clothing, if he had any weapons on him and Gregory revealed the 3- to 4-foot-long sword under his coat. He told the officer the sword was part of his attire, Gonzalez said.
