A woman called police late Thursday, April 25, to report people were inside the Tracy Goodwill after hours.

She said that her husband drove by the 2626 N. Tracy Blvd. store at about 10:45 p.m. and saw several men inside, even though there is no construction and the shop should be closed.

Officers arrived about 1 minute after the report and found three white trucks backed up to the business. However, the people there turned out to be a security team that was installing equipment inside the store.

Police verified the workers’ story with the Goodwill corporate office.

Tracy police received 163 calls for service Thursday, April 25. The following is a sample of those reports.

7:26 a.m.: A 27-year-old man was arrested in central Tracy on suspicion of spousal abuse after police received a report of a fight between a man and a woman. A caller said the two were throwing things at each other and that the woman was almost run over by a car allegedly driven by the man.

1:54 p.m.: Sonic Drive-In, 2080 Naglee Road, had an ordering stall damaged during a hit-and-run.

3:04 p.m.: A citizens arrest was made at Kenner Park near Jacobson Elementary School, 1850 W. Kavanagh Ave., according to the police log. The woman who made the reported arrest detained a person she suspected of stabbing the tires of her son’s car. Police were expected to make a report.
