Get out of jail quick these days

From the Inbox:
Remember this?

Periodically I look at the State and County inmate search sites to see where Justin Parker is. I was shocked to find that he is not in their systems anymore. (I don't think he was ever in the State system)

He was booked in March, so he is out in less than 4 months!

Encinitas to get ALDI discount grocery store

San Diego Reader:
Encinitas grocery shoppers are about to get a little more European influence. A design review permit application with the city became public last month, for the opening of an ALDI supermarket. It will be the sixth German-based store opened in San Diego County in the last two years, but the first one along the upper-middle class coastline.

ALDI’s website identifies the chain as “discount grocery.” Grocery items are shelved directly in the product’s cartons or open boxes. Their stores do not have banks, pharmacies, or cash checks.

Naked guy breaks into Days Inn hotel room

10 News:
Sheriff's Deputies responded to an Encinitas hotel room Tuesday night after reports of a break in on Encinitas Boulevard.

Upon arriving, deputies were told that a naked man broke into the Days Inn room around 10:15 p.m., and several teenagers were inside.

Deputies tell 10News that the man was staying in a room on the third floor and the teens, in town for a school field trip, were staying on the second floor.

The man got into the room, but eventually jumped off the second story of the building and landed on the windshield of a car below.
