Noticing a pattern in the arrests – drugs.

The Monterey Police Department has seen an increase in property crimes in recent months, specifically automobile and residential burglaries,” police said.

Police believe there are two categories of thieves targeting Monterey: 1. a roving group that travels to Monterey, and 2. local criminals.

The roving groups “target areas that they know have financial means,” police said.

There were some arrests, among them:

May 21: Monterey Police Officers, with the assistance of the Seaside Police Department, arrested Zachary Thomas, 31, of Pacific Grove, in the 1100 block of Fremont, Seaside, for commercial burglary, possession of stolen property, and possession of a controlled substance.

Police Crack Down On Thefts

And they make arrests. Imagine that, police doing policing,

Mcgruff

In response to an increase of vehicle and residential burglaries, the Monterey Police Department has created the Burglary and Theft Team and made 17 arrests in the past two months in connection to those crimes.

According to Hober, officers on the Burglary and Theft Team volunteer to work overtime on their days off.

“They’ll just go out and proactively try to develop information and find people who might be committing these property crimes,” he said. “A majority of those 17 arrests came from officers on the (Burglary and Theft Team) going out.”

Monterey Getting $8,000,000 For A Short Section Of Recreation Trail Improvements

Eight Million Dollars for “to go from Fisherman’s Wharf to the Coast Guard station”. The money is coming from a grant (taxes) called the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 that was sold to the tax payers as an investment to fix our roads, freeways and bridges in communities across California. As usual, Governor Moonbeam lies about where our tax dollars are spent.

At least put some lights up and maybe a few 911 phones to cut down on the rapes, robberies and assaults that happens on that dangerous trail.
Rec Trail Graff

“Solutions for congested corridors are usually for Los Angeles or San Francisco so one of the things that we try to do with this grant is highlight the importance of offering an environmentally friendly and alternate form of transportation,” said Andrea Renny. She said that by creating a smoother running trail, drivers could be swayed to become bikers, therefore the improved Rec Trail could also serve to alleviate congestion on the road. And while some have advocated for the need to separate the bicyclists and pedestrians in that stretch of the trail, Renny said that the Parks and Recreation Master Plan calls for widening the trail first before other alternatives can be considered.
