Top 5 From the Los Altos Police Log, April 17: Arrest and a Tow

Accidents, suspicious circumstances and a good old fashioned arrest on a bench warrant during a traffic stop make a day.


Tuesday's incidents included accidents (one spot is on ), a disturbance, and suspicious circumstances. Plus, a traffic stop yielded an arrest on a bench warrant.

It's the "suspicious package" in our catch-all "suspicious stuff" category, however, that piques the curiousity. "Information only?" We guess nothing blew up. Naturally, we wanted to know what was in there?
