I live in Fountain Valley ... a nice, mostly quiet town in OC.
I was fast asleep this morning at about 1:30am when my phone rings. As usual, when your phone rings at 1:30am you assume someone is dead. No one had died, but it's the police department asking me to open my front door!
I put the dogs out and go downstairs and am informed that there might be someone hiding in my backyard. My backyard backs up to a street so I guess someone running from the police jumped the fence. Several policemen (who were very cute and let's face it ... at 1:30am I was NOT looking cute) went through my house with a police dog and searched my backyard! Flashlights everywhere! About five monutes later they left, not having found anything, but warned me to keep my doors and windows locked.
It was a little tough to sleep after that!
