Two missing persons found—one walking along Highway 1, an auto burglary in Pescadero, a car window smashed but nothing taken at Devil’s slide, vandals puncture tires on two cars in Princeton in the morning and another key that evening in Princeton, and bad behavior:

Deputies came up behind a stalled vehicle on Hwy 1. When they approached the vehicle they saw that the driver was attempting to start the vehicle with a pair of pliers. They asked the driver for his license and registration but he was unable to provide either. He verbally gave them a false name, address and date of birth. The driver was arrested and the passenger called a family member to pick her up.

[...]

Deputies were dispatched to a report of a hysterical female who was screaming and crying. They contacted the female who told them that her son had pushed her out of the vehicle she was driving then fled the area in the vehicle. Deputies are familiar with the male subject and will be following up.

This includes the Sheriff’s report for the week ending June 5.
