Tracy Police recorded 166 calls for service Monday, July 25, including the following reports:

The man was gone when police arrived, apparently having jumped over the back fence. Police got another call a little more than two hours later after the man returned to the house. The woman and other people at the house left before police arrived. An officer knocked on the door and the man answered, but promptly shut and locked the door upon seeing a police officer.

11:04 a.m.: A person at the Royal Motel, 1201 W. 11th St., told police that a woman had some stolen checks and was cashing them at a nearby check-cashing business. The woman was reportedly seen getting into a car to leave the area when police stopped the car and made an arrest.
