Fremont News of the Day

From the cops:
A burglar decided to cover his tracks by trying to set fire to the home on the 37600 block of Fremont Boulevard he had just burglarized. But turns out he no arsonist. The home is still standing, just with fewer contents inside.

Someone selling a bicycle on Craigslist got dinged by the cops because a woman in Davis couldn’t recognize her own stolen bike. The bike lady thought she saw her recently stolen bike being offered for sale on Craigslist out of a home in Fremont. Cops located the seller and went to his house. They found the bike wasn’t stolen, but that the resident had built an illegal dwelling in his garage. The case is going to code enforcement.

Instead of laying low, a parolee with multiple outstanding warrents fought so loudly with his girlfriend in a home on the 4000 block of Deep Creek Road that cops were called out. They surrounded the home and arrested the parolee.
