Pleasanton police report 'busy weekend' with 14 arrests around city

Charges included drug possession, battery, domestic violence, DUI and more

"Busy weekend!"

That was the headline for the Pleasanton Police Department's post on Facebook on Monday recapping a weekend that saw police record more than a dozen arrests in the city.

"Sometimes we just have to brag a little bit. Our officers were getting it done this weekend! Aside from their usual patrol checks and traffic enforcement, the weekend crew made 14 arrests!" PPD officials said in their post.

The arrests included incidents including battery, shoplifting, trespassing, domestic violence, outstanding warrants, DUI, child endangerment, violations of court orders and drug offenses such as possessing heroin, Fentanyl, methamphetamine or drug paraphernalia and being under the influence of a controlled substance. Specific details on the different cases were not immediately released.

Over the weekend, local officers also responded to two residential burglaries, a vehicle burglary and a house fire where they helped evacuate residents and neighbors. There were also situations during which two people were placed on emergency psychiatric holds, according to PPD.

Now if our PPD can increase enforcement on traffic violations like speeding and running stop signs that would be great. I see people speeding along Hopyard and running stop signs along Valley way more frequently than I'd like. So great work on those let's focus on those driving like their kids don't live here.
