Police log: Woman accidentally swallows pot-filled brownie, but is OK

Other police reports through April 24

A 75-year-old woman called 911 after accidentally eating her 69-year-old male roommate's pot brownie, but Pleasanton police don't expect to file charges.

Sgt. Kurt Schlehuber said the whole thing came about because the man, who was scheduled for surgery, had made brownies with marijuana butter given him by his children. Unbeknownst to the man, the woman ate one, became ill, and called 911. The call came in at around 11:29 p.m. April 19 from the 4200 block of Sheldon Circle and was originally listed as a felony charge of furnishing marijuana.

In other police reports:

A traffic stop for a burnt out headlight led to the arrest of a Pleasanton man on a marijuana sales charge. Michael Heisser, 22, was arrested after police found 28.2 grams of marijuana in one bag, another clear bag with 3.8 grams inside, a third bag with containing 2.9 grams, $279 cash and a digital scale. Heisser was arrested at about 11:17 p.m. April 19 at the intersection of Smoketree Commons Drive and Vineyard Avenue.

A Pleasanton man was arrested April 20 on a felony warrant from the Alameda County Sheriff's Office. Christopher Dillon, 46, was taken into custody on Old Santa Rita Road and Santa Rita Road on charges of grand theft and possession of stolen property.

Two burglaries were reported in Pleasanton on April 20. In one, reported at 8:26 a.m. at California Shine in the 7000 block of Johnson Drive, two laptops worth a total of $1,300 and $500 in cash was taken. A lock was broken off a door to provide access.

In the other, reported at 3:17 p.m. in the 7800 block of Fairoaks Drive, a Wii game console worth $200, another $200 in Wii games, and a $50 DVD player were stolen. Access was gained through a garage door and an entry door from the garage into the home.

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

Brace yourself P-town. With his holiness Obama having greased the skids for BART extensions and low income housing, we'll likely be getting more and more stories like this. Anyone doubt that the pot came from Oakland, probrably leftovers from the occupy stink-ins?

@Steve ... you really need to get a sense of reality. Pot has been around a long time. It is not an Obama invention. So loosen up on being a "dork" - pop ur head out and breath some fresh air.

BTW: Go down to your local high school (Amador for example) and you'll find lots of of pot. So you don't have to go to Oakland where the boogie guys are lurking around every corner. Dolt-ism????
