The Benicia Police had a busy weekend. They nabbed four suspected drunken drivers, quieted down a couple of parties and responded to every false alarm called in by the alarm companies.

12:51 a.m.: A 46-year-old man was arrested on I-780. It was discovered there was a no-bail arrest warrant with his name on it. He was given a ride to jail.

4:17 a.m.: A residential alarm on Dover went off for no apparent reason.
7:21 p.m.: A group of skateboarders were reported in a West J neighborhood. They must have been using the boards for transportation because they were gone when police arrived.

9:26 a.m.: The Benicia man who was cited and released at 8:55 p.m. Saturday night on suspicion of drunken driving was arrested again a mere 12-and-half hours later. The second arrest was for suspicion of being drunk in public on Southampton Road.
9:45 a.m.: A juvenile (we’ll assume it was a boy) was trying to remove the CO2 from a canister. The police report did not give a reason why it was important to free the CO2.
12:39 p.m.: A resident on Warwick was warned about a loose dog. The dog apparently lives at the Warwick address.
2:50 p.m.: Police stood by while a former resident of West L Street went back for some stuff. The stuff was still at the West L Street address. The retrieval went according to plan.
