Commercial burglary in El Granada, DUI’s and warrant arrests, a second citation and tow within a month for the same drive, a dog bite in Moss Beach, and more bad bad dog owner behavior in Princeton:

Deputies were dispatched to a neighbor dispute. A resident was looking out her window when she saw a female walking her dog. The female stuffed something into the homeowners down spout. The homeowner checked the drain and found a black plastic bag with fecal matter in it. The homeowner was familiar with the female and told Deputies that he would not file charges if the female apologized. Deputies contacted the female who admitted to putting the bag in the down spout. She was angry with the homeowner about letting his dog run wild and complaining about everyone else’s dog. The Deputies advised her to call the Sheriff’s Office or SPCA if she had any problems with other people’s dogs. She sent her apology with the Deputy to the homeowner.
