SECURITY BEAT


Eggers Caught

Security Patrol’s head driver, Dick Clark, put together a stakeout strategy on Saturday, March 29, to get the license plate information of those who have been throwing eggs at Sun City Security Patrol cars, as well as residents’ cars, on recent Saturday nights. Dick had the regular Saturday night Patrol crew and extra drivers stationed at various locations. Normal patrols were maintained while the extra drivers were looking for the eggers’ vehicle. The strategy was successful, with three Las Vegas Metropolitan Police vehicles responding and catching five teenagers in the Taco Bell parking lot with eggs visible in the back of their vehicle. It seems police officers were not arresting the teens at that time, but contacting their parents.

Fines to be Issued

On Friday, April 4, Security Patrol received the license plate numbers of two pickup trucks with occupants who were reportedly seen removing recycling materials from residents’ curbside bins. The Patrol has passed the information along to the Southern Nevada Health District, which is the agency responsible for compliance. Notices of violations and associated fines will be sent to the truck owners ($900 for the first offense, increasing by $500 for subsequent offenses)

Help Wanted:

A Tale of a
Whale’s Tail
 

by Ellen Greenspa/Link


 

The travel agent’s Alaskan cruise literature sold me on pristine scenery, gigantic glaciers, native Aleuts, whales and fearsome grizzly bear sightings. This would be an exciting adventure. But, as the sun set on my first day aboard ship, clearly, the rest of the passengers had not been lured by literature; it was food! Meals are included in the passage price and they  . . .
