From the cops:

A resident on the 4400 block of Hansen Avenue let her no-good cousin crash at her place. But when the cousin started making trouble at the apartment complex, she told her cousin to scram. The cousin left — but took his host’s car with him.Officers expect both the cousin and the car to show up in Oakland.

Two men crashed a stolen BMW at Paseo Padre Parkway and Warwick Road. They fled, but police found the one of the sweaty crooks in the passenger seat of another car.

Police arrested a 16-year-old boy for stealing a pair of $16 shorts from Marshalls. The teen’s mother refused to pick him up, and the teen was so fearful of returning home that he began confessing to lots of crimes hoping the cops would take him to Juvenile Hall. When he confessed to helping beat beat a male with spray cans while trying to take the victim’s wallet, police decided he did belong in Juvenile Hall.

Two women began hiking Mission Peak at 6 p.m. without flashlights. They got lost when the sun went down, and cops had to rescue them.

    From the “safest city” link:

    “San Jose is a great all round city. Warm weather, great beaches, high median household income ($88,000) and a great educational system.

    2 out of 4 ain’t bad.

    haha!! paraphrasing, “Fremont doesn’t seem like the most desirable city to live in or travel to” i know i complain about Fremont being boring, so why am I still here? When I get a better job I plan on leaving ASAP!!

    Aw, thanks Marty! That’s very kind of you :) I’ll just keep trying I guess…

    Three out of four criminals agree that Fremont is much too dreary, and would prefer to commit their crimes in other cities. Let’s give the Fremont Citizens Network a big hand for fighting to keep Fremont so very boring!

    Ha Ha, Charlie!

    Criminal 1: “Yo, lets go break into a Fremont house.”

    Criminal 2: “Nah, bro. Tried that once. There’s nothin’ to do in F-mont, so people don’t leave their house. You’d end up having to jack a fool tryin’ to hide behind some lame marble column he had installed in his tract home.”
