At 5:32 p.m. Saturday Jan. 4, someone reported a disturbance in the 1100 block of Calle Puente. Five teens were throwing pumpkins into a local school’s campus.


At 4:39 p.m. Saturday Jan. 4, a caller reported a suspicious teen in the 2700 block of Calle Del Comercio. The caller said a 17-year-old boy was standing in the street with his girlfriend drinking beer and smoking pot.

At 10:19 p.m. Saturday Jan. 4, deputies received a call about a group of suspicious teens near the cross streets of Camino de Estrella and the I-5 Freeway. A group of teens inside a Toyota was flashing bottles of alcohol to onlookers.

At 1:47 p.m. Monday Jan. 6, an angry caller reported a petty theft in the 2400 block of El Camino Real. A group of teens pumped gas at a local gas station and left without paying. The group left before the caller could get a description of the car.

These are selected reports from the San Clemente Police Dispatch Services log throughout the past few days. The calls represent what was told to a sheriff's deputy in the field by the radio dispatcher. No presumption of criminal guilt or affiliation should be drawn from the information provided.

Looks like we might need more things for our teens to do around here.....

Hey, as long as its just pumpkins thrown into a campus, I'm not upset. That is just about every generation's thing. Better than shooting into a campus, any day.
