Parked, occupied vehicles containing one or more persons are especially significant if observed at an unusual hour. They could be possible lookouts for a burglary in progress, even if the occupants appear to be lovers. Any vehicle moving slowly and without lights or following a course that appears aimless or repetitive is suspicious. Occupants may be casing for places to rob or burglarize. Apparent business transactions conducted from a vehicle, especially around schools or parks and if juveniles are involved, could mean possible drug sales.

A car crash near the playground at Eastbluff Elementary School hit close to home for many students and parents Tuesday morning. Tire marks leading to a wrecked white Toyota sport utility vehicle, parked half on the street and half on a sidewalk where many parents walk their children to school, greeted students arriving around 8 a.m. The car careened through an area in front of the school that bustles with children on school days. “If it would have happened just 15 minutes later, what would have happened would be shocking,” said Beverly McMullen, whose 7-year-old daughter is in second grade at Eastbluff.

Authorities recovered money that was stolen Tuesday morning from a Costa Mesa bank, a spokeswoman for the FBI confirmed Wednesday. Police recovered a number of large and small bills from two suspects who were arrested Tuesday and found additional money in their car, said spokeswoman Laura Eimiller. Bystanders returned bills thrown out of the fleeing car. Eimiller said police did not know yet how much money had been reclaimed. “They got away with large and small bills, so we haven’t totally evaluated the sum that was taken,” she said.
