DISTURBANCE, PONDEROSA LANE: A female resident of Ponderosa Lane was having trouble with raccoons in her attic and heard that the critters don’t like loud music. Her solution was to place loud speakers in the eaves of her attic and blast them with loud music. The speakers, however, were outside her home, and the loud music disturbed her neighbor who complained to police Sept. 29.
The homeowner told police that until she had the raccoons at bay, she had planned to continue playing the loud music. Police told her to keep the volume level down, and she complied.
