Wrong number to report homeless
Placeholder Image

Tuesday’s Around Town had the wrong non-emergency number to call Manteca Police dispatch when you come across a homeless gentleman who often poses a safety hazard at the entrance to McDonald’s on East Yosemite Avenue across from the center anchored by Grocery Outlet.

The correct number is 209.456.8101.

Motorists have complained they can’t see pedestrians or oncoming n traffic due to the nearly 6-foot high rolling cart stacked with boxes and such that he parks right at the entrance while panhandling.

Police can only require him to move after a citizen calls in with a safety complaint due to their view of traffic and pedestrians being blocked.
