Santa Claus took time out of his very busy schedule to have breakfast with several families this past Saturday at our Annual “Breakfast with Santa”. About 100 people joined us to visit with Santa and share their Christmas dreams. Children were dressed in their finest or in their cozy PJ’s to make a craft, have a tasty breakfast and whisper their Christmas list to Santa as their parents took festive photos.

As Santa departed he asked us to pass along his wishes for everyone to have a very Merry Christmas!

Koda and His Partner in Action

For those in the Downtown this evening, there was a little bit of action. OPD Officers were advised that a stolen vehicle had passed one of our Automated License Plate Readers (ALPRs). The device is essentially a camera that takes a photo of a license plate and then checks it against the state-wide stolen vehicle list. When it finds a vehicle that is wanted by police, it alerts our dispatch center and the dispatchers alert the officers. Turns out Koda (and his partner Officer Del Prado) were in the right place at the right time to see the car headed toward Downtown on Main Street.

Because stolen vehicles are used in so many other serious crimes, officers typically have the occupants of the car exit the car and come back to officers. Once everyone is out, it’s Koda’s job to make sure no one else is hiding in the car that could injure the officers.

The vehicle was reported stolen out of Alameda County. Officers initially detained the three occupants of the vehicle. A search of the vehicle found a number of items with security tags still affixed to them. Officers also found a number of large bags that appear to have been used to conceal merchandise and prevent security systems from detecting the merchandise (commonly referred to as “booster bags”). Officers seized the bags and merchandise from the vehicle and the vehicle was impounded. One of the three occupants, Joachim Miller, 68 year-old from Antioch, was arrested for possession of stolen property and booked at the jail. The other two occupants were released to family members who later arrived at the scene.

Koda and Officer Del Prado always seem to be in the right place at the right time. He’ll get a nice scratch, some extra play time, a quick snack - then it’s back to work. Koda lets Officer Del Prado handle the paperwork, Koda hates paperwork and none of us are going to argue with him. Grrrrrrreat job by both of them.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Oakley Police at OPD@ci.oakley.ca.us

UPDATE ON PORCH PIRATE - Why we work together . . .

Shortly after posting about this crime, we received a tip about the location of the vehicle from this morning’s package theft. OPD Officers responded to the area and located the vehicle parked in a driveway of a home. Officers made contact with the residents of the home and were able to identify the woman who had stolen the packages from the porch of the home. OPD Officers were also able to locate the packages that were taken during the theft. The thief now finds themselves on a different naughty and nice list - the court docket. OPD Officers will now be bringing the packages back to the home where they were taken from.

Thank you to everyone who helped us solve this case and get Christmas back on track for this family. The value of a security camera or a quick thinking neighbor proves again that we can solve these things when we work together. A tip of the hat to members of the Posse, you brought another one in for justice.
