Ex Mayor Recovers Stolen Bicycle

Carmel Mayor sees something and says something

at around 3:30 a.m. March 18, a security guard at the Monterey Plaza Hotel saw someone smash a glass door at the Mad Dogs & Englishmen bike shop and called police, who soon arrived to discover “someone had broken in and stolen a high-end electric bicycle.”

Having seen their post and photos of the bright red e-bike, former Mayor Steve Dallas was in Seaside shopping for his mother the next morning when he saw a group of men standing around a bike that seemed out of place. “I was getting something for my mom at Smart & Final and came back to the car with some drinks for her, looked up and saw this red bicycle,” he said. He recognized it as the e-bike stolen from Blevins and Watson — who opened their first Peninsula bike shop on Mission Street in Carmel several years ago — so he called Seaside P.D.

Lifespan Of A Huge Jade Rock: About Nine Years

When it’s left sitting in a front yard on Ocean View.

On March 5 at about 9:25 a.m., a person in a silver Chevrolet Suburban pulled up to a house on Ocean View Boulevard, picked up an expensive jade that was in the front yard and put it in the rear of the vehicle. The driver then fled the area. Surveillance video captured the theft of the rock, which police said was valued at $5,000.

The unidentified jade owner purchased the sizeable rock nine years ago, and it had been in his front yard since,

Central Pharmacy Robbed Again

It’s 2 AM in P.G., took 3 minutes to get to an alarm activation at a pharmacy.

The break-in triggered the pharmacy’s burglar alarm, and though officers arrived within three minutes of getting the call, the thieves were already gone. “We got there, and you could tell from standing across the street that the front door was ajar,”

After officers discovered the thieves had pried open the door, they searched the business and discovered it had been burglarized. Owner Dana Gordon arrived and provided officers “a very rough idea of what was taken,” Fenton said — items related to opioids.

Burglar Caught After Citizen Witnesses Break In

Don’t mess with South of Sinex.

Salinas resident Marcus Swingle, 29, was climbing out of the window of the Forest Hill Ace Hardware located at 1136 Forest Ave. in the Fairway Shopping Center at around 4 a.m. The officers were there to greet him.

Officers credited an observant citizen who had noticed someone who appeared to be breaking into the store. The citizen subsequently notified the police, providing them with a run-down of what the suspect was doing.

Man Burgles Youth Center, Takes Video Game

Police Cmdr. Rory Lakind said it appears the burglar got into the Pacific Grove Youth Center through an open window. He said Pacific Grove doesn’t typically have many nonresidential burglaries. With the youth center break-in following burglaries in the same week at nearby Hopkins Marine Station and St. Angela Merici church, police are investigating if the three crimes are related.

When A Vehicle Burglar Is Caught, Others Move Right In

Caught a thief from Marina. If only there were some cops or something to patrol the streets maybe the thieves would go somewhere else.

Nicklaus Hall, 18, remained in Monterey County Jail this week without bail.

“We verbally told him that he was under arrest and to stop, and we caught him and took him to the ground,” Lakind said, adding that Hall probably tried to run because, “he was wanted, so he knew he was going to go away.”

Hall had a no-bail warrant for violation of probation from the previous burglary, according to Lakind, and police linked him to at least five other vehicle break-ins, which have become commonplace, in the area.

But even with Hall in jail, Pacific Grove police are still battling thieves. “We had a few more the other night, after he was arrested,” Lakind said.

Jeffery Rutt – the Pacific Grove resident arrested after leading deputies on a car chase two months ago when he was caught breaking into cars — has already pleaded guilty to multiple crimes and sentenced to three years in prison.

Although they live in the same P.G. home and share a last name, it’s unknown how Jeffrey Rutt is related to Jason Rutt, who was arrested for burglary in 2014 and drug offenses in 2012, when he was already on probation for an earlier offense. In the 2014 case, Jason Rutt, then 29, trashed a home on Sage Court while spending all day inside, making himself at home, rifling through the owner’s
possessions and stealing luggage and jewelry. “The house was basically ransacked, and food was eaten. He was probably there all day,” thenPGPD Cmdr. Cassie McSorley said at the time.
