Fremont cops got money to set up stings against stores that sell cigarettes to minors. Officers set up decoys to make 226 purchase attempts over four days. Only 15 of the 226 purchase attempts (6.6 percent) did clerks sell the cigarettes to the 15 to 17-year-old decoys. Those bad clerks were given citations. The sale of tobacco products to a minor (under 18) is a misdemeanor, which carries a penalty up to a $1000 fine, depending on prior offenses.
A middle-aged man crashed his bike and died on the Alameda Creek Trail under I-880. More on that in tomorrow’s paper.
A studnet scheduled to graduate John F. Kennedy High School tomorrow started partying early. He boozed himself up, crashed his car and drove away.
A woman in the area of Logan and Central called police when she saw a man that looked similar to someone who had burglarized her home. Officers arrived, searched the man and found a handgun in his front pocket.
From the Fremont City Council:
The budget is passed, a massage parlor can move into another massage parlor’s turf, zoning changes could lead to more than 100 apartments (maybe low-income) in Downtown Niles.
