A roommate situation had clearly soured by the time a Rancho Santa Margarita woman called the Orange County Sheriff's Department on Sunday evening.
According to the blotter of the OCSD, a woman reported that her former roommate was drunk and had left the residence about 10 minutes earlier on foot in order to get some cigarettes.
More importantly, the informant reported, was that the former roommate had in her possession two bottles of wine that she allegedly stole from the residence. The caller indicated that she wanted to press charges for the petty theft.
Deputies found the woman—and retrieved the bottles of wine.
The call was made Sunday, 7:57 p.m., from Fuente.
"Now playing the hits of Tijuana, Ensenada and Monterrey ..."
Residents on one Rancho Santa Margarita street were treated to an international wakeup to their weekend on Friday.
According to a caller, a man placed a boom box on top of his car and blasted Mexican music for the entire neighborhood to hear—at 8:15 a.m.
Clearly, at least one neighbor was not happy and reported the offending music to the sheriff.
The call was made from Calle Arcos.
A mother's concern
A woman reported that she and her 21-year-old daughter had gotten into a fight and the daughter had punched her and left their Foxtail Lane residence. The mother didn't want to press charges against her daughter, but was concerned because the daughter's boyfriend had a warrant for his arrest—which was the cause of the argument.
The call was made Friday, 1:33 p.m., from Foxtail Lane.
A father's concern
A man called on OCSD to report that his 16-year-old daughter was outside the house and would not leave. The man had locked her out of the home, he said, because "she doesn't follow house rules."
The call was made Saturday, 9:32 a.m., from Pomelo.
