Police log: Parking lot check leads to forgery bust

A check of the Wal-Mart parking lot May 23 led to multiple forgery charges against a woman, a police report said.

Officer Mark Sheldon was doing a routine check of the lot at about 10:15 p.m. that Monday night and approached a car with its light on. A consent search of the car led to the discovery of 67 forged Visa debit cards, along with paraphernalia needed to create more, according to the report, which said a false driver's license was also turned up in the search.

Leona Charmaine Savoy, 36, was booked on charges of forgery in connection with the false driver's license, identity theft, counterfeiting of debit cards and modifying the magnetic strips on the cards.

In other police reports:

Front doors of two businesses were smashed May 28. The door of Dicky's in the 6600 block of Koll Center parkway was smashed around 1:08 a.m.; minutes later, at around 1:20 a.m., the front door of Plaza Market and Liquor in the 5500 block of Springdale Avenue was smashed. No information was available about whether anything was stolen from either location.

A laptop computer valued at $1,000 was reported stolen May 27 from a building in the 7800 block of Marigold Court, along with $420 in cash and coins. The theft took place between noon May 11 and 4:30 p.m. May 27. The victim also reported $491 in charges to a Visa card stolen in the break-in.

A postage machine worth about $1,000 was stolen from a business in the 5000 block of Hopyard Road between 6 p.m. May 12 and 1 p.m. the following day, according to a report filed May 27.

A burglary at the Massage Journey in the 1400 block of Stoneridge Mall Road netted $719 in cash, along with credit card receipts.

I'm feeling rather fortunate, right now, that we moved out of the townhouses across from the mall.

Oh, really?? What 'mall' is that??

Stoneridge Mall in Pleasanton doesn't have any 'townhouses' across from it.

Could you be tryin' to start somethin'??

unclehomerr, there are two sets of townhouses/condos across the street from the mall. They start at Stoneridge and Springdale. There's a very nice greenbelt area there, full of lovely trees and a creek with an attractive bridge going over it. You should check it out sometime.
I can see you didn't like my comment, but, no, I'm not fabricating a community in Pleasanton, that has been there at least since the early 80s, in an effort to 'be tryin' to start somethin.'

It sounds to me like unclehomerr is trying to "start somethin'..."

justsayin, I understand exactly what you mean. So do most people who will read that, and I agree with you.

I'm familiar with the area since it's not too far from where I live, Yes, there are townhouses across the street just south of the mall. Unclehomer is wrong (yet again).

If you'd said near the mall.. or a couple of blocks from the mall.. I'd have had nothing to say. When you're so loose with your words to say "across from the mall", you need correcting!

unclehomerr..
ps. Stoneridge/Springdale have condo's on the SW and SE corners.. Apartments behind the fire station.. but, nothing "across from the mall"!

pps. Commenting about how fortunate you were to 'move' from the mall area.. then, suggesting I should check out the lovely greenbelt, trees, creek, and bridge seems disingenuous at best and 'trying to start somethin' at worst. You stretch the truth and then flip/flop like Obama!

Since unclehomer is so familiar with that area, hopefully he will stop in at the Kaiser office at Stoneridge/Springdale so he can up his dosage...
