As the year comes to a close, the Redlands Animal Shelter is looking for donors who can help subsidize the rising cost of spaying and neutering animals for adoption.

In 2012 the shelter found homes for 963 dogs and 456 cats. Adoptions for 2013 are on pace to equal the 2012 numbers. While space at the shelter, located at 504 N. Kansas St. is limited, the Animal Shelter – a division of the Redlands Police Department -- endeavors to find homes for every adoptable animal it takes in.

Redlands Police are investigating an armed bank robbery in the 200 block of East State Street Monday morning.

Shortly before 9:15 a.m. Monday, Dec. 9, a suspect described as a white or light-skinned Hispanic male, dressed in black jacket with black scarf-like material over his face, blue jeans, a black baseball cap, white gloves and white tennis shoes, walked into the Security Bank branch at 201 E. State St. The suspect pointed a handgun at the teller and demanded cash.  He exited the bank and walked north on 6th Street.

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

This holiday season, the Redlands Police Department will be out in force cracking down on impaired drivers with special DUI/Drivers License Checkpoints.  A checkpoint is scheduled for  Dec. 20, at a location to be determined to help keep roads safe for holiday travelers.

The Redlands Police Department is giving fair warning to all partygoers.  “In addition to DUI/Drivers License Checkpoints, you will also see us making lots of stops during this highly visible enforcement period,” said Sgt. Jeremy Floyd, who supervises the RPD Traffic Unit.   “If we suspect anyone is driving while under the influence, officers will show zero tolerance for drunk or drugged driving.”

A butane lighter inadvertently left in a broiler caused a fire in an apartment oven Wednesday. The fire was quickly contained and no one was injured.

Redlands Firefighters responded to the report of a structure fire at about noon on Wednesday, Dec. 4, in the 0 block of North San Mateo Street. Redlands Police evacuated the apartment before firefighters arrived.

The fire originated in the broiler section of the apartment’s oven, which had recently been repaired. A butane lighter, inadvertently left in the broiler, exploded as the oven was being preheated for baking. The fire was contained to the oven but there was smoke throughout the apartment.

The Redlands Fire Department responded to two separate structure fires Monday afternoon, Dec. 2. Both fires were quickly contained and there were no injuries reported in either blaze.

Shortly after noon firefighters from Redlands and Mentone responded to a fire in the 1300 block of North Grove Street. The fire was discovered by a neighbor who saw smoke inside the residence through a window.

The Redlands Police Department wants to make sure everyone can remain thankful for their health and safety while on the road this Thanksgiving holiday. Redlands Police officers will be out on targeted “saturation patrols” Wednesday looking for anyone who may be tempted to drink and drive.

Officers on saturation patrols look for typical alcohol-impaired driving patterns. The holiday enforcement action is part of an ongoing initiative aimed at creating a healthier, safer community through enforcing alcohol laws.

Four men were cited after buying alcohol for teen-age Redlands Police volunteers Wednesday. The volunteers approached people outside several local businesses. The enforcement effort, known as a “shoulder tap operation,” was part of a $23,714 grant from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

On Wednesday, Nov. 20, two volunteers, a 19-year-old female and an 18-year-old male, accompanied by a Redlands Police officer, stood outside local businesses on Colton Avenue, Orange Street and Redlands Boulevard and offered to give people entering the stores money to buy beer.

Due to flooding, mud and debris, San Timoteo Canyon Road has been closed from Live Oak Canyon Road to Barton Road. The road is expected to be closed throughout the night.

Several vehicles have been towed after being stuck in the mud.

Sand bags and sand are available to residents across from the City Yards, located on Park Avenue between Kansas and Tennessee streets.

Quality of Life crews with trucks and equipment are checking and clearing City storm drains and extra crews are on standby.
