Scanner Reports 6-26-17
Well another Monday, the weekend after the Solstice Parade. I haven't been to one of those in many years, though I'm sure they are fun. I’ve never been much for going out unless I'm drunk, then everyone wishes I stayed home. The last time I ever went to any of our town’s celebrations was many years ago, sneaking into the Mercado during the Fiesta Parade for a couple tortas, then running home to hide. I'm sorry to some of you that I am this way. I ought to be ashamed of myself living in a tourist town and being a hermit. Along with the Scanner Reports, I ought to be writing reviews of all the wonderful things we have here in Santa Barbara. Well there is the Spearmint Rhino, I had a good time there once. From what I gathered, I don't listen to the scanner all night, this weekend seemed pretty much like all the others. Then again when the heavy stuff happens, and it does even here, the powers that be find ways to keep them quiet. But from what I heard, pretty much the same things I heard last weekend. I like it better mellower, even though it may not really be that way but that is what we hear. Out of sight, out of mind.
Here is your Scanner Reports, FRYday:
• Suspicious subjects jumped a fence into a yard where there is bicycles, Olive at Gutierrez. 2 HMAs, one riding a black bike, the other a green bike. Did not hear if they got anything after riding away.
