Death, taxes and hackers. A Woodminster Drive resident told Moraga police that her personal computer had been hacked. The IRS had reported that a tax return had been filed in her name without her consent. The woman had become suspicious when a regular monthly payment notice for back taxes did not arrive for February. Police are investigating.
Stop that limo! At 10:45 a.m., an auto accident between a limousine and a car inside the gate of the Sanders Ranch subdivision turned into a confrontation in which the car driver stood in the road by the gate blocking the limo from leaving. The vehicles collided when the limo driver was going the wrong way on a one-way road, Merrill Circle. No injuries were noted in the report.
Boots and lumber. At 3:45 p.m., police cleared off a pair of boots and a piece of lumber obstructing Moraga Road and Rheem Boulevard.
Talking in the bushes. At 8:28 p.m., a citizen was suspicious and reported five young adults in the bushes, talking on cellphones, at the corner of St. Mary's Road and Rheem Boulevard. Officers checked the area and found nothing suspicious.
Bad, wet turn. At 6:11 a.m., officers did traffic control while Moraga-Orinda Fire Department staff turned off the water to a broken fire hydrant. It appears a motorist made a right out of the shopping center in front of the Rheem Theatre and struck the stop sign and a hydrant. Officers failed to locate the driver.
Inter-generational strife. Officers investigated an Ascot Drive complaint regarding a 5-year-old left in the care of a grandparent while her parents were at work. The grandparent, concerned about parental care of the child, had contacted county Child and Family Services, which is investigating. "During the investigation, officers did not discover any evidence that the child would be in danger from her parents," Moraga police reported.
