Who among us hasn't forgotten where we've placed our keys?
A man was in the office of Santa Margarita Catholic High with his son to report to the Orange County Sheriff's Department that the boy's car may have been stolen.
According to the OCSD blotter, the car was located about 50 minutes later on Alas de Paz—where the boy had left it.
The call was made Monday at 3:12 p.m.
If you want a job done right
A Rancho Santa Margarita man complained about loud music coming from a nearby home. According to the blotter of the OCSD, the man originally wanted to remain anonymous, then thought better of it and advised the desk he was going to confront the neighbors himself.
About 15 minutes later, the man called back to report that the neighbor began yelling at him when he approached about the noise.
Still, the man's complaint about the loud music apparently did not fall on deaf ears. When deputies arrived at the noisy residence Monday at 2:20 a.m., there was no answer at the door but there was no music, either.
The original call from the 200 block of Aliento came at 1:52 a.m.
Catch and release
A man in his 20s carrying a couple of fishing poles was unwelcome at a Boy Scout camp at Oso Lake. The informant signed a private person's arrest against the man, who was cited and released.
The call was made Monday, 9:23 p.m., from the 21100 block of Los Alisos.
