Crime Watch

The following are some of the recent calls from the Glen Ellen and Kenwood area responded to by the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Sonoma Valley Substation.

Aug. 4

Deputies got a call at 10:19 p.m. about two cars of juveniles parked and partying on vacant property in the 1000 block of Trinity Road. The caller was especially concerned about potential fire hazard. A deputy went out and contacted some of the juveniles and gave them a ride home.

Aug. 5

A caller said he found a bank statement on the road in the 1000 block of Trinity Road and wanted a deputy to come by and pick it up.

Deputies got a call around 4 a.m. from a resident in the 900 block of Madrone Road who said that someone was trying to steal his roommate’s Kawasaki motorcycle. A deputy went out and saw two juvenile males, who then covered their faces with bandanas and ran. The deputy chased them down, and then a backup unit arrived. After talking to the juveniles separately, there was conflicting information as to whether or not they were trying to steal the motorcycle, though it was admitted they had gone on You Tube to watch a video on how to hot wire a motorcycle. One of the juveniles also showed a nearby car that had its window and tail light shattered. There was a crowbar nearby. The two were taken to juvenile detention, and information gathered by the deputies was forwarded to the District Attorney’s office.

Aug. 7

A resident of the 4000 block of Trinity Road called to report a suspicious white pick-up parked on the road near his property with cones around it. It turned out the truck belonged to an environmental company out of Loomis.

A passerby driving in the area of Arnold Dr. and Hill Road called to report a male hitting a female along the side of the road. The caller said the two appeared to be homeless. A deputy drove out and contacted the male subject, but the female had left the area.

Someone who was setting up for an event at Plaza Park in Kenwood reported finding a bloody shirt and a plastic bottle with blood on it.

Aug. 8

A resident of the 13000 block of Arnold Dr. reported hearing a loud explosion and then a blood-curdling scream from a male. A deputy drove out to the area but could not find anything.

A deputy went out to the 5000 block of O’Donnell Lane regarding a report about a loud party and screaming at a vacation rental. By the time the deputy arrived, the noise had stopped.

Aug. 11

At 2 a.m., deputies got a call about a prowler in the 15000 block of Arnold Dr. A woman caller said she could hear someone walking around outside and then trying to open a sliding glass door. A deputy went out and contacted a male subject, who turned out be the son of the woman. Apparently, the son had been trimming weeds outside.

Aug. 14

There was a report at 10:30 p.m. of a loud party with loud music at a vacation rental in the 13000 block of Henno Road. A deputy went out to the site. Nothing further.

105 gallons of gasoline were stolen from a field storage tank belonging to Chateau St. Jean Winery. The lock on the tank had not been broken. Approximate loss: $400.

Deputies drove out to the 13000 block of Carmel Ave. at 11:30 p.m. on a public intoxication call. The caller said his father had gotten intoxicated, was belligerent, and had destroyed items in the residence they shared. The father was currently asleep. Soon after though, the man stumbled out of the home and began to get into a car that was in the driveway, but the son had the keys. The deputy determined the man was too drunk to care for himself, and was arrested for public intoxication and taken to county jail.

Aug. 15

Someone called dispatch at 9:30 p.m. from the Kenwood Inn & Spa saying that a female guest was yelling and upset that a hotel manager had let someone into the inn without the caller’s consent. Nothing further.

Aug. 16

There was a report of fireworks going off at 1:15 a.m. in the 900 block of Madrone Road. The caller said the culprits were juveniles and were possibly drinking alcohol.

A deputy went out to the 13000 block of Garric Ave. on a battery call involving family members. It turns out that two sisters had gotten into a physical altercation over the parenting skills of one of the sisters. One had said the other was not a good mother, which prompted hair pulling and blows being struck. As they tangled on the floor, their mother tried to intervene but was inadvertently kicked in the face for her trouble. The two sisters were taken to separate hospitals complaining of various pains. The incident was forwarded to the District Attorney’s office.

Aug. 20

Someone smashed a window of a car parked at Sonoma Valley Regional Park and stole a purse. A credit card was used soon after at a nearby gas station.
