Police BulletinHome robbery may be dispute between friends
Last week's report of a home robbery may have stemmed from an argument between two friends, police said.
Police received a call about a holdup at a home in the 2100 block of Cascara Court around 10:17 p.m. Jan. 8.; Pleasanton police Sgt. Kurt Schlehuber said the report was filed after a dispute over money one of the men involved wanted to borrow.
"When the victim did not have enough money that the suspect wanted, he stole the victim's wallet and left the scene," Schlehuber said. "This took place in the driveway of the victim's house. This was not a home invasion and we already have the suspect identified."
No arrests have been made; Schlehuber said some of the details provided by the victim did not add up.
