There was also a shooting at the Glenhaven Apartments on Central Avenue. No victims. Officers located one round in a DMV sign at Central and Dusterberry.

Three stores were burglarized at a shopping center at Paseo Padre Parkway and Deep Creek Road.

Officers got a call of a possible burglary in progress on the 5400 block of Butano Park. They arrived to find two men in a vehicle near the burglarized house. Officers caught two additional men fleeing from the backyard of the house wearing gloves and carrying burglary tools. The cops arrested four men in total.

Police arrested a man accused of exposing himself to girls. On Sunday he followed a group of girls, ages 10-13, home from a 7-Eleven on Chapel. He sat on a retaining wall at the end of Lincoln Court and exposed himself.

    Hi Robert….The Chamber of Commerce does not estimate the number of attendees…the Fremont Police provide that information. They have a few high vantage points where they observe and provide us with the numbers. I am sure it is not an exact science. I have no idea…and it is of little consequendce to me how many are there. I am more concern with the success of the event…that it is safe and fun…and that our non profit organizations (over 40) can make some money to keep their organizations funded until the next event. I think we did a pretty good job insofar as those goals are concerned. I did get a chance to look at the art offerings…and I found some real cool things. Also…if lines are an indication of good food…the silly spuds were off the charts. (I did get to try them and they were worth the wait in line!)
