There's been grafitti spray painted in that area also -- on the sound walls along Stoneridge between Santa Rita and Dennis Drive. The police really need to step up their nighttime patrols of this area.

Perhaps a Neighborhood Watch could come into play. You might want to carry a camera when walking your neighborhood. Don't be afraid to call out to someone you feel may be doing something they shouldn't.... Be tactful but make sure that they know you see them. Shout out something like "Hey there, got the time?" :)

Wonder if the kids at Foothill High are talking about this incident? Sounds more like a bunch of kids trolling around town on Friday night. Just the sort of activity (coupled with drinking/smoking pot) that a bunch of kids would do impulsively "for fun".
Parents--do you know where your kids were on the night of this incident? Do you realize you will be fined for their damages?

anne. please get your facts straight before you point fingers. making such an uneducated judgement makes you look absolutely stupid. why would you say "coupled" with drinking and smoking? i'm sure that at least one time in life, someone has told you not to jump to conclusions. i think perhaps you have absolutely no idea what you're speaking about; i just don't want you to embarrass yourself further.

Ignorance is blissful isn't it? Marijuana use in our community is at all all time HIGH among teens! (no pun intended, haha) And this is highly potent medical grade marijuana we're talking about. Not the stuff you probably smoked in high school, Lori.
Have YOU attended any of the seminars that the Pleasanton Police have offered recently? That is where I gained MY information and "jumped to conclusions" with my statement. My comment was that this is just the sort of activity that impulsive teens under the influence, with impaired judgment, would think is "entertaining". (Ever watch an episode of "Jackass"?) Or, do you actually think that these tires were slashed by an adult person who has a bone to pick with their neighbors? Or perhaps the proposed parcel tax has them frustrated and angry?
Please, Lori, stop embarrassing YOURSELF and face reality!

Ladies please! Let's not argue and insult each other. Truth is, this happens in every neighborhood, in every town in any given year. Most likely, it is young teens with nothing to do. Under the influence? Maybe, maybe not. We'll never know. All we can do is put our cars in at night and install some good lighting and hope the police can step up their patrol. Some teens lie to their parents about where they are going at night. We all want to trust our kids but truth is sometimes they do things we never thought they would do. We do our best but sometimes they are just impulsive and even though they know it's wrong, they do it anyway. Hopefully, there will be talk at school on Monday. To all of the victims, sorry for your loss. Pleasanton is not immune from crime just because it's a nice city.

fist off mairjuanna is good it doesnt make you wanna to hurt people/tires. I think its because the kid is trying to be a gangsta. But sooner or later young kids will realize that they live in Pleasanton and there isnt really any form of ghettos or poverty around. So little fake bitches goto stockton and get the taste of the real world DONEZZZZZZO CUZZZZZZZZZZO FSU out
