Sonora Mar 02 Weekly Crime Report: 30 Incidents and 3 Crime Stories
Sonora Mar 02 Weekly Crime Report: 30 Incidents and 3 Crime Stories. During the last week, the place of Sonora reported a total of 30 crime cases. The most common type of crime was 'Other', with 11 instances, followed by 'Arrest' with 5 cases. 'Theft', 'Assault', and 'Trespass' each had 3 occurrences, while 'Vandalism' was reported twice. 'Burglary', 'Suspicious Situation', and 'Argument' were the least common, each with only one case reported. The data suggests a relatively high frequency of non-specific criminal activity, with 'Other' accounting for nearly 37% of all cases. This could indicate a range of less severe crimes or incidents requiring police attention. However, the relatively high number of arrests suggests a strong response from local law enforcement. The presence of theft and assault cases, although fewer, still indicates a level of significant criminal activity that warrants attention.
