Police Calls: Vandalism, Identity Theft, Grand Theft

A look at the Los Altos Police Log, June 12-13, where trees down need a second call, fruit sellers get the boot, and a parking violation near the movie shooting location was logged.


If a tree falls in the unincorporated part of Los Altos, will anyone hear it? Sometimes it might take a couple of calls. A resident along Frontero could conclude that to get a response, maybe calling County Roads shortly before 5 p.m. should be followed up with a call to the county Sheriff's.
