The Drug Store: Making Healthy Lifestyle Choices! Yesterday we participated in the annual Drug Store program hosted by Coronado SAFE. The goal of the program is to engage our children to critically think about making positive, healthy lifestyle choices. The Drug Store is a dramatic, experiential program that takes students on a journey through the natural consequences of poor choices with regards to drugs and alcohol. More than 300 local sixth grade students from Coronado Middle School, Sacred Heart Parish School and Christ Church Day School participated. This community-wide event involves more than 100 volunteers including parents and students, Coronado Fire Department, DEA - San Diego San Diego County Probation, San Diego County District Attorney and Sharp Coronado Hospital.

TRAFFIC TUESDAY Question: Can I get a DUI for marijuana? Answer: Yes. DUI laws apply not only to alcohol, but to marijuana, prescription medication, and any other licit or illicit drugs.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Pomona Police Department as they mourn the loss of Officer Gregg Casillas. Officer Casillas was gunned down on Friday night as he and his partners responded to a call of a barricaded subject. Our officers will wear their mourning bands across their badges until Officer Casillas is laid to rest.

Save the date!

Starting in April 2018, Medicare will begin mailing new cards to everyone who gets Medicare benefits. Why? To help protect your identity, Medicare is removing Social Security numbers from Medicare cards. Instead, the new cards will have a unique Medicare Number. This will happen automatically. You don’t need to do anything or pay anyone to get your new card. Here’s what you need to know about your new card. Plus, how to avoid related scams:

Update 6:15 am: The female juvenile driver was released from the hospital and transported to San Diego County Juvenile Hall. She is being charged with DUI causing injury, DUI under the age of 21 and resisting arrest. Her passengers were released from the hospital into the custody of family members. The injured officer was also released from the hospital. The 300 block of E is open to traffic. We would like to thank Port of San Diego Harbor Police Department. for their assistance throughout the evening. We truly appreciate it.

At approximately 9:30 p.m. Friday evening, our Communications Center received a call from a motorist reporting a possible drunk driver. An officer in the area located and attempted to stop the vehicle on Third Street when the vehicle made an abrupt turn onto E Avenue and crashed into a parked car. Several juveniles exited the car and ran from the area. After a brief foot chase, two of the teens were found nearby and transported to the hospital with injuries sustained from the collision and two additional passengers were found hiding near the area of 4th and Alameda Blvd. Those two teens were also transported to a hospital with injuries from the crash. A police officer was also injured during the incident. Several containers of beer, hard alcohol and cans of spray paint were located inside the vehicle. The 300 block of E Avenue is closed at this time due to the investigation.

This afternoon, officers arrested Marcus Johnson and Samiku Dorsey, both of Moreno Valley, for shoplifting from several local businesses. We received a call around 2 p.m. after a Rite Aid employee observed the duo stashing the stolen items in an empty baby stroller and a backpack. The pair left the store and drove away in a white sedan. Patrol officers were able to locate the vehicle a few blocks away at 7th Street and D Ave. They found several electric hair cutters/shavers, personal care items, men’s and women’s clothing with security tags, 33 bottles of alcohol and the stroller inside the car. At this point in the investigation, officers believe Vons Grocery and a local clothing store are also victims in this case. Both suspects are being charged with burglary and conspiracy, and Johnson for violating his parole conditions. The vehicle was towed due to unlicensed driver.
