Scanner Reports 7-3-13
updated: Jul 03, 2013, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

Well it's Wednesday Happy Hump Day. Heard an Interesting call on Tuesday morning about a possible squatter in a Shed on the West Side. Police arrived to check it out. I heard the officer request the phone number for Zoning, adding that the yard is a Mess. A few moments later he stated that this was possibly a Dario Pini property and the woman was quite possibly renting the shed to live in. I knew a guy a dozen years back that bought a property in Goleta with a huge backyard he bought a bunch of metal sheds and had his own little community living in them. He also had other properties where he rented to several families for a pretty good sum of money. It's interesting the things people do to squeeze a buck. One second they are helping you out, the next they are screwing you.

Dogs. Been hearing a lot of Dogs left in cars on HOT DAYS with rolled up Windows. You know what that feels like how intense the heat can become in a metal vehicle. I do. Folks used to do that to me all the time. And No, that's not what screwed up my brain but I know you're thinking that. It's HOT, real Hot in those vehicles especially left alone for hours with no water or air. It's a horrible way to die. Don't be surprised if you find your vehicle busted into your Dog or other Animal Gone. Don't be surprised if you find yourself under arrest for being cruel to animals. DON'T LEAVE DOGS, OR OTHER ANIMALS LOCKED IN HOT VEHICLES EVEN FOR A MINUTE IT WILL KILL THEM!!!

I was watching the Snooze the otter day the Weather Gal said it was going to be 80 out there, stay inside. I thought stay inside when it's only 80? I went for a walk it was one of the most uncomfortable 80's I ever felt. She was right. Staying inside though on a bright and Sunny hot day I think NOT.

Those threads people put up "What's going on" are annoying when I open them up and it says "Roger?, there was an Ambulance, a police car and a fire truck. What's going on Roger?" If I knew you would know because it would already be up if it was really something other than a Medical Emergency. I think thieves case the Edhat articles for victims, you put down Medical emergencies while people are in the hospital their homes will be getting cleaned out. Sometimes I'm Out and About also buying groceries, paying rent monitoring the scanner isn't a 24/7 job for me. Occasionally I wake up in the middle of the night hear something and post it. I don't listen all night. I personally think some of the bigger professional snooze agencies should have someone up all night monitoring for news but they usually pass out earlier than I do. Of course they could always suck an intern into doing it.

Anyway hairs your Scanner Roni Reports, Monday:

  • Lompoc Police were looking for a stolen auto a 94 Honda Civic taken from the 100 Block of South K Street.
