Police Calls: Turkeys on the Loose!

Despite the use of 911, phantom turkeys give police the slip, thefts from unlocked cars continue, and a gas leaf blower user gets a reprimand, all in the March 11 log of the Los Altos Police.


We've provided a picture of a loose turkey from last year, just to show it's happened before.

The Los Altos Police log for March 11 also has some incidents of weightier nature, from the violation of a restraining order, to a citation issued for driving on a suspended license.

And one more thing: Who calls 911 to report a parking violation, anyway (one that turns out to be unfounded, to boot)?
