Berkeley Police executed two warrants on homes in Oakland last week netting nearly four ounces of crack cocaine, one-half ounce of cocaine and a semi-automatic pistol.

Police arrested Parrish Grayson, 31, of Oakland and Tamara Arnold-Kidd, 29, also of Oakland.
Police were called to the 2600 block of Dana Street Tuesday when a resident spotted a stuffed gorilla wearing a red and white San Francisco 49ers jacket with the words “I’m Gay” written on the back. Police have not determined if the incident will be classified as a hate crime.
A woman at the intersection of College and Ashby Avenues was robbed Tuesday morning by a man who approached her and snatched her purse, he said. The suspect is described as a white male teenager, about five feet nine inches tall, weighing 150 pounds and sporting red, pink and green hair.
