Top 5 From the Los Altos Police Log, April 16: Graffiti That Wasn't

Plus, things that go bump in the morning (not night) and other noises needing attention. And, someone decides to make good on his warrant and turns himself in for arrest.


On Monday, graffiti turns out not to be graffiti. Suspicious noises turn out to be not so suspicious, and other noise must be handled. The biggest event was a 41-year-old man, who waited two years, and finally turned himself in shortly before midnight on a misdemeanor warrant for driving under the influence of drugs or alchohol.
