Woman busted for prostitution at private residence

For the second time in as many weeks, Pleasanton police have used a prostitution website to make a bust, according to police reports.

Amanda Marie Mikluscak, 35, of Pleasanton was arrested at about 11:43 a.m. Oct. 23 for prostitution and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was arrested at a private residence in the 1600 block of Calle Santiago.

On Oct. 15, another advertiser on the site was arrested at the Extended Stay in the 4500 block of Chabot Drive for prostitution and paraphernalia possession.

In other police reports:

* Eric Richard Stage, 35, of Pleasanton was arrested on multiple misdemeanors and one felony at about 3:51 p.m. Oct. 22 at the intersection of Vineyard Avenue and Ruby Hill Boulevard.

Two police officers noticed Stage with his hood up on the side of the road; when they stopped to help, he bolted. Stage was arrested for felony possession of methamphetamines and five misdemeanors: possession of burglary tools, receiving stolen property, unlawful taking of a vehicle, obtaining a vehicle by theft or extortion and driving with a license suspended for DUI.

* There was no arrest in the shoplifting of more than $3,000 in women's panties from Victoria's Secret at the Stoneridge Shopping Center. A clerk saw two people described as a Hispanic man and a black woman hurrying out of the store carrying a bag that looked "really full." The panties, 260 pairs of thongs and "hipkini" underwear worth $3,250, were stolen at about 3:12 p.m. Oct. 25.

* A resident of the 3800 block of Mammoth Cave Court reported being a victim of the grandparent scam. Someone claiming to be her granddaughter said she was in trouble and asked for money. The victim sent $7,000 in three wire transactions at Western Union. The scam was reported at about 9:20 a.m. Oct. 25.

* A resident of the 7500 block of Canyon Meadows Circle told police someone had filed a tax return in his name, then collected his $5,000 refund. The report was made at about 5:40 p.m. Oct. 26.

* Laptop computers were taken in two recent burglaries. One occurred sometime between noon and 1:20 p.m. from the University of Phoenix in the 7900 block of Stoneridge Drive and netted a laptop worth $2,500 and a $500 iPad while the employees were at lunch.

The other, an auto burglary, took place in the parking lot of Stoneridge Shopping Center, and a laptop worth $1,500 was stolen along with a leather computer case valued at $300. A window was smashed in the second break in.

* Maui Wowie Coffee and Smoothies in the 4800 block of Hopyard Road reported a door window had been smashed with a large rock and $100 cash was taken from inside the business's cash drawer. The burglary was reported at about 5:41 a.m. Oct. 28.

Yes indeed I was arrested for felony child abuse, but I was charged, with misdemeanor child abuse.
I ask everyone to take special interest in what has happened here!
My daughter who I love and care for as a single father, was abducted by a company [portion removed], why? Because the night before I took her cell phone for ditching school and sneaking off with her friend. I have had no contact with her since. I have been restrained from my home now vacant. I was court ordered to return her phone. Officers refused statements from neighbors and witnesses.
I return to court the 3rd time on Jan 6. Superior court Pleasanton come see!

@ Lance. I support you. Kids these days know just the right thing to say to get the police to look at parents for child abuse. They know my crying "wolf" they will get what they want. We had the same issue with my daughter. She was lying, cutting school, etc. She went into school and told the school resource officer we were mistreating her. They questioned us, realized she was trying to pull a fast one, I said I didn't want to her home at the moment, they put her in group home (not in Pleasanton by the way) for 3 weeks. She couldn't wait to come back home to Pleasanton and our rules. Teenagers lie and are maniplutive. I hope things turn out right for you.
