How to Get Your Parole Revoked, 201, Day Two

parole-badge.jpgHi class - welcome back! Last week, we talked about using a stolen car to go check in with your parole officer. This week, we’re upping the ante. You’ll need a little luck on your side, but if you play your cards just right, you’ll have a great story to tell when you head back to the clink:

It all started shortly after 9 a.m. Wednesday when police received a call from a frantic woman saying she had just escaped from a room at the John Muir Inn at 445 Muir Station Road near Center Avenue. She told police that a man was still at the motel being held against his will, Sylvia said.
When the call went out, about eight police officers were having a meeting across the street from the motel at a Starbucks coffee shop, Sylvia said. The officers, from the administrative division and the investigative bureau, were soon joined by six uniformed officers and surrounded the motel.
Craig Manley, 28, and Simon Melo, 29, both parolees, tried to run away but were quickly caught and arrested for parole violations, Sylvia said. Police found numerous stolen items in their room, including checks and credit cards, as well as drug paraphernalia, Sylvia said.
State parole agents who happened to be in Martinez at the time also responded to the motel.
Police did not find any man being held against his will. They suspect that the woman might have made the phone call after a drug deal went bad, Sylvia said.

Pretty poorly written article, Sylvia said.

For reals. Who the fuck is Sylvia? Why does s/he say so damn much?
