1700 10-8 with additional Halloween detail personnel. Positions assigned and cones deployed along SE 9 Ave at VSY Park. There was a text message on the detail phone, looks to be a telemarketer type thing judging by the content, a horoscope type thing. I left it for review.
1715 Began out-of-town checks. Streets already VERY busy.
1800 Checks completed & apparently secure. I have never seen so many people in the
neighborhood so early. I have been stopped & asked if this was the Rio Vista
neighborhood they read about online, to go to trick-or-treat. Obviously this on-line
attention will be drawing more people. WOOHOO!
1830 Flagged down in the 1700 blk of SE 9 St by a homeowner who advised of a male in
a grey van offering to sell him Persian rugs. Same description as the Monday night
entry above. I circulated with negative results.

description was more specific, advising the van is a Honda mini-van, & it was
N/B on Cordova in the 700 blk. I responded but the vehicle was GOA.

Area after trick-or-treating. Close, no cigar.

he can “comfortably handle” and asked for a marked unit drive-by, thinking it may
help. I drove-by as requested, no violations were observed.
2132 Called by the above non-member again asking for us to close down his gathering. I
advised we were busy with this large group in the park. He understood. I advised him
we would respond if the opportunity arose.
2145 Responded to above. The non-member was right, there were too many kids at
the house for him to handle. Over 200 kids were in his fenced yard. When I walked in
all of the beer & liquor bottles clanked when they hit the ground & someone had
obviously been smoking dope. The children then gathered in the intersection and I
had the other 3 detail officers join me to clear the area. At 2220 we were able to clear
the area. I had a significant talk with the homeowner, and
warned him reference contributing to the delinquency of minors
