Petty theft, mail: 4800 block of Hampton Road. The deputy who took the report at 4900 Hampton filled out a report for the piece of advertising mail he'd found and recovered.

Petty theft: 2100 block Foothill Boulevard. A man said that while he was shopping at the Ross store, someone stole his Samsung cellphone from his shopping cart when he turned his attention away from it for a moment. He suspects that two men who were in the same aisle with him at the time took it, but when he asked them, they denied it. Later, while he was waiting outside for a deputy to respond to a call for help, the two men drove up and asked him if he'd found his phone yet. He described one of the suspects as Latino, dressed in khaki pants and a green shirt and second man as black, wearing brown pants and a blue-and-white striped T-shirt.

Identity theft: 4600 Leir Drive. A woman reported that in December someone had used her personal information to open several credit cards, including three from JCPenney and at least one from Macy's. She learned after requesting her credit report that attempts had also been made to open accounts in her name with the Home Depot, Sears and American Eagle Outfitters. In January she made a payment to Macy's, with which she's had an open account for several years, but later realized that payment was made toward a fraudulent account in her name.
