Disturbing phone calls
Los Altos Police are investigating “disturbing or annoying” phone calls reported by Los Altos residents, according to police spokesman John Korges.
Four different homeowners received the calls Saturday: 9:40 a.m., Surrey Place; an hour later, Marich Way; 12:45 p.m., West Portola Avenue; and 6:40 p.m., North Gordon Way.
Korges said police are determining whether the incidents are connected.
Who let the dogs out?
• A resident reported a dog causing a “traffic disturbance” at the Foothill Expressway and Edith Avenue intersection Saturday afternoon. Before officer Rich Swanson could respond, the dog had fled the intersection.
• Officers responded to a call that two dogs were running off-leash (a municipal code violation) near Grant Park on Holt Avenue over the weekend. The dogs and their apparent owners left the scene before officers arrived.
• Officer Dan Corkern returned a dog to its home near Miramonte Avenue and Covington Road. It had escaped through an open side gate.
Drop-off for old medicine
Los Altos residents can turn over unneeded medication or medical supplies to police officers for proper disposal.
Some residents dispose of unused pills or liquid medicine in the toilet, but police spokesman John Korges said that because toilet water flows to the Bay, police officers will arrange to dispose of the medicine in appropriate offsite facilities.
The Los Altos Police Department is located at 1 North San Antonio Road.
