1910 I observed a local pizza delivery person/vehicle driving slowly down SE 8 Street. I also noticed what appeared to be a cell phone lying on the trunk of this vehicle. A traffic stop was made to which the young male driver quickly expressed his frustrations/concerns regarding the “police are always stopping him, picking on him because he delivers food”. As he continued his frothy sermon-ette in dialogue referencing how he is always being mistreated and profiled by the police; I handed him his still undamaged cell phone.
Gentlemen, if there was ever a Kodak moment this was it. He was suddenly a poster child for regret, embarrassment, confusion and self-pity all at the same time. I thought he was going to melt into his seat like the Wicked Witch in the Wizard of Oz movie.
The driver was now suddenly absolutely speechless. As he sorted though all of his emotions apparently realizing that I had actually (despite the terrible person I apparently am) just saved his bacon. He was totally unable to put two words together as his mouth was gaping at the hinges. I believe the internal mental strife/conflict must have been a very humbling experience for him. I could be wrong but I would like to think it was.
The now quite sheepishly grateful driver and his electronic device were reunited before a very expensive disaster struck. I think maybe someone may need to lower his sail as the wind just died out on the course he was traveling.
1925 Flagged down by a resident who believed he saw children playing in the construction site located at SE 9 Street and SE 9 Ave. I checked the security of the site and it appeared secure. I entered and searched the entire property locating no persons or any evidence of a problem. I secured the fence upon leaving and once again spoke to the complainant.
2000 Received call on detail phone from a resident stating she saw a homeless type man laying across the sidewalk on SE 7 Street near the Quik Mart. I located the individual who identified himself. He was clearly intoxicated but was otherwise quite fine. He stated he just left the hospital earlier today and they told him they would not give him any drugs for his “condition, so he got drunk instead.”
The individual stated all he needed was some drugs or some beer and he would be ok. He added “I’ll go away if you can get me some drugs or buy me a six pack”. Not feeling as if was in a good position negotiate with me , I ultimately gave him the choice of going to jail (again) or leaving the area on his own terms. He chose to take a walk.

1900 All of the vacation homes appeared secure on recheck.
1920 I stopped a W/M who was jogging N/B in the 1500 block of N. Rio Vista Blvd wearing a dark colored full facial bandana and long pants. Thinking this was a bit unusual on a day when its 95 in the shade not to mention the obvious failure to visually disclose his identity, I followed the individual for several blocks from a distance to observe his activity. I began to notice the residents who had observed him were all startled as he ran past their homes; one of which had already picked up his phone to call the police.
The subject eventually came to SE 5 Ct. and Federal Hwy. where I approached him asking to speak to him. The subject stopped but was obviously none too happy to see me and began copping an attitude immediately when was spoke. I was eventually told he runs like this because he read about it in a cross training magazine as a performance enhancer for his workout.
Soon the subject walked away stating he did not have to talk to me anymore, claiming these people in Rio Vista are too rich for their own good they are all paranoid. He seems harmless overall but he possesses zero common sense combined with a really combative attitude towards the police and other citizens in the neighborhood.
Since I am sure he now feels an overwhelming validation of his cause (whatever that may be) by sticking it to the man with his unusual escapades; I am certain he will continue his behavior even if he collapses of a heat stroke while doing it. Please see below:
2020 I spoke to several of the residents who had also seen the above listed individual and gave them a report of what I learned while briefly speaking to him.
