[Monrovia Police activities from the Police Department's Neighborhood Watch Report for Oct. 7–9. - Brad Haugaard]

During the last seven-day period, the Police Department handled 428 service events, resulting in 75 investigations.

Annoying Phone Calls / Grandparent Scam

October 7 at 3:22 p.m., a phone scam was reported from a resident in the 100 block of North Magnolia. The resident received calls telling her that her grandson was in jail in Puerto Vallarta. The caller wanted 10,000 dollars in 100 dollar bills placed throughout a magazine and mailed to a location in New York. The victim stopped and confirmed both of her grandsons were in the United States, and then reported the incident to police. The victim did not suffer any loss.

Fight in Progress / Possession of Drug Paraphernalia / Warrant – Suspects Arrested

October 8 at 9:25 p.m., officers responded to a hotel in the 900 block of South Fifth Avenue on the report of two male subjects fighting in the hotel hallway. One of the suspects left the location prior to the officers arriving. Officers located the other male suspect in a hotel room, along with two female subjects. One of the females was arrested for an outstanding warrant out of San Bernardino, and the second female was arrested for possession of a methamphetamine pipe. A baggie of methamphetamine was found in the hotel, which possibly belonged to the outstanding male suspect.
