Police log: Cops deliver misdemeanor charge to drunken dialer

Calling 911 to order pizza led to a misdemeanor charge against a Pleasanton man on April Fool's Day.

Matthew Jason Marty, 39, was arrested at about 3:13 p.m. after calling 911 exactly 24 times, according to police reports. Police contacted Marty at his home in the 1300 block of Hopyard Road after the first five pizza delivery requests; although he appeared to be intoxicated, he apologized, but then called 911 to order pizza 19 more times in about 30 minutes.

He was charged with calling 911 for harassment.

In other police reports:

* Arron Scott Autler, 26, of Manteca was arrested at 12:32 a.m. April 2, charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of a non-narcotic substance and paraphernalia possession. A guest registry check at Motel 6 led to Autler, who turned out to be on probation. A search turned up a syringe filled with apparent methamphetamine, more than an ounce of marijuana and four half tablets of Xanax.

* Jacob Michael Perry, 20, of Livermore was arrested about 4:38 p.m. April 2 in the theft of a 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada from that city. Perry was spotted by officers in the parking lot of ValleyCare, near the corner of West Las Positas Boulevard and Santa Rita Road.

* A registration check March 31 at Motel 6 in the 5100 block of Hopyard Road led to the arrest of two people. The check, at 10:18 a.m., brought police to Francisco Vargas, 24, of Riverbank, who was wanted on a felony DUI warrant for an accident with injuries. While there, police also arrested Brooke Elizabeth Saltmarsh, 26, of Danville for possession of a controlled substance.

* Quincy Hudson, 35, a transient, was arrested March 29 at about 9:04 p.m., for burglary, grand theft, possession of stolen property and theft with prior convictions. Employees of the Gap store in the 2100 block of Stoneridge Mall Road reported a missing wallet and a non-employee in the store's break room. By the time police caught up to Hudson, he'd already used a credit card from the wallet to make a purchase.

* Antony James Gastelum, 19, of Pleasanton, was arrested 10:39 March 28 on Kolln Street and charged with possession of brass knuckles.

Under the law, those arrested are considered innocent until convicted.
