From the Walnut Creek PD:
On 7/17/2017, at 8:50 AM, two males brandishing handguns, entered a home on the 2800 block of Oak Grove Road. The suspects confronted the residents (a husband and wife and their child) and stole a yet to be determined amount of cash and personal property. The suspects fled on foot southbound toward Cedro Lane. A tan or gold mini-van (possibly a Ho nda Odyssey) was seen fleeing the area at the time but has not yet been positively identified as being associated to the suspects. No one was injured.
WCPD Officers arrived on scene within minutes of the crime being reported but the suspects were not located. A Pleasant Hill Police Department K-9 unit assisted in conducting a track with negative results.
Anyone with information as to the identity of the suspects in this crime or who can provide additional information is asked to contact Detective Bill Jeha at 925-256-3518 or Sergeant David Rangel at 925-256-3573.

On Monday we learned that anti-Muslim fliers were posted around the Joaquin Moraga middle school campus in Moraga but it wasn’t clear who posted it nor what the contents were. Thanks to a Facebook reader for pointing out this East Bay Times article which reports that they were posted by a current student and ‘depicted a still from the animated sitcom “Family Guy” that shows the cartoon character Porky Pig emerging from a drum emblazoned with the words “Muslim Looney Tunes,”’ Click here to see the still from the Family Guy Wiki.
Last Wednesday “inflammatory fliers about Muslims” were posted around the Joaquin Moraga Intermediate school in Moraga. According to the principal, “administrators and counselors visited all classrooms to address this issue.” It’s unclear whether they were posted by (former) students or adults.

Unbelievable. According to this NBC Bay Area article, a Clayton Valley Charter High School student was arrested after images of a naked school administrator were shared. “He is accused of filming Linzey inside the locker room of the nearby Renaissance Club Sport in Walnut Creek. Investigators say he then posted the video online.”
I remember when a celebrity shared a photo of naked woman from a gym in Los Angeles last year and now this. What is the matter with some people!
When I got out of my car at the Target parking lot in Walnut Creek and saw flyers on the windshield of cars I thought surely this must be scofflaws advertising a nail salon or some service but interestingly, it was the Walnut Creek police themselves who posted “Don’t be Easy Prey” flyers warning not to leave handbags in cars that are visible to protect against break-ins. This is sound advice, I always make sure to put bags in the trunk out of view when leaving my car.
