A 37-year-old San Jose resident has been arrested for vehicle & ID theft, according to the Pleasant Hill Police Department (PHPD).

The following information is from PHPD:

SUSPECT(S): Alison Terese Hash age 37 from San Jose.

BRIEF STATEMENT OF INCIDENT: On 2/6/13 a PHPD officer conducted a records check on a vehicle driving in the 1300 block of Contra Costa Boulevard.

The check revealed the vehicle had been reported as stolen to the San Mateo Sheriff’s Office. A high risk vehicle stop was conducted and Alison Terese Hash was taken into custody. Recovered in the vehicle were numerous credit cards issued to Hash and others. Also located were numerous credit card receipts for purchases made in several different counties within the State and narcotics.

Hash was booked into county jail for Stolen Vehicle, Identity Theft, False Impersonation, Theft of Access Cards and Possession of Controlled Substances. Hash is being held on $100,000 bail.

Further investigation is likely to result in additional criminal charges.

Maybe she can post bail with one of “her” credit cards.

Don’t we have enough crooks of our own without importing them from other cities?

Parsnip February 8, 2013 at 10:43 AM

Stolen vehicle, numerous [fake] credit cards, receipts for purchases, and narcotics: “Don’t leave home without it.”

What a ditz.

Bad girl!!

Good job PHPD.

Alison Hash? Need I say more?

Cap'n Nick February 8, 2013 at 11:52 AM

No picture to comment on? Very disappointing, Mayor. Seriously now. 🙂

Toooooo ugly for a camera?

Mr Mayor
Can you get her mugshot so I can print it out and put it on my dart board.

He/She? February 8, 2013 at 1:15 PM

Is Alison male or female? It’s unclear from the article.

None of you idiots even know what happend or what you are talking about. Why would you waste your time commenting on a story when it has absolutely nothing to do with you? Why don’t you do something better with your precious time, rather than sit in front of your computer and blog, comment and gossip all day long like little children. You are probably all twice my age, so you should reconsider your maturity and priorities. Guess my mother raised me to have some more respect than your’s did..

Jeff February 8, 2013 at 1:43 PM

Cut her hands off.

That’s not evident from your little rant.

JRConcord February 8, 2013 at 2:14 PM

@get a life
Uhh duhhh…. we do know what happened she must of woke up from an ambien dream to find herself in a stolen car with stolen ID. And magically she had a cotrolled substance on her. What, is this your darling mother you speak so highly of? If not would you trust her with your wallet? Now go away this is no place for a insult adverse human being. This is what I get to do on my day off of work. How dare you insult my insults. Do you know me? I think not…

jay February 8, 2013 at 2:37 PM

your all ignorant

ChampagneKitty February 8, 2013 at 2:38 PM

to get a life #11: It is quite obvious that a) you are new to Claycord and b) you are related to the suspect.

Anon2 February 8, 2013 at 2:50 PM

Who knows? Maybe #11 is the suspect – already out on bail….. Either that, or Ms. Hash traded her one phone call for a chance to blog on

Cowellian February 8, 2013 at 2:59 PM

jay wins the “your all ignorant” irony award!

Killjoy February 8, 2013 at 3:42 PM

If she’s an identity thief, are you sure they are booking under the correct name?
Hopefully she’s not using one of her stolen identities and giving someone else a criminal record.

Don't Censor Me Bro February 8, 2013 at 4:01 PM


It’s = u’all ignant

Larrabee February 8, 2013 at 4:04 PM

Maybe jay thinks they arrested a 37 year old vehicle, AND identified a theft suspect.

Nokeem February 8, 2013 at 4:24 PM

I am wondering aloud if #18 knows what the error is in his post. I am thinking, no, he does not. The proper contraction for “you are” is not your, it is you’re. I don’t know if #18 got the irony, but it is not lost and me. Hilarious.

Nokeem February 8, 2013 at 4:26 PM

Correction to last post. replace “lost and me” with “lost on me”. The fun never stops.

Cowellian February 8, 2013 at 4:34 PM

Nokeem, we can’t get one by you, can we? I’ll let someone else explain it to you, but thanks for playing.

Lot’s of “C-” students blogging today

@Cowellian #18
And, the first runner up is get a life #11.

ironic February 8, 2013 at 4:56 PM

‘get a life’s’ life is so much more superior as (sounds like a she pmsng) as she sits around and criticizes criticizers. More holier than though. Ouch just got wacked in the head by that rafter in her eye.

Why are you all so angry? February 8, 2013 at 5:06 PM

You all sound like very bitter people, who feel the need to degrade others in order to feel better. Why are you all so upset with someone who is not related to you, or has any relation to you at all? It does not involve you, or necessarily affect you. You might not have committed the same crimes, or anything illegal for that matter, but who are you to judge someone else? We all commit sins, some seem way worse than others but we all do things we aren’t proud of. Let this person get what they deserve on their own, but bashing them isn’t going to gain you anything. Save their family any more embarrassment and please keep your thoughts to yourself, and if any of you have any heart at all, you would stop arguing with everyone above. A wise person holds their tongue and doesn’t give into their anger. Your comments are foolish. Would be nice to see you people have compassion and realize that people need help in this world, they don’t need closed minded people who can’t seem to analyze and understand why criminals have issues that are behind their disillusioned decisions. Please stop this and leave the situation alone. No, there is no one new to Claycord, just people who would appreciate it if you could refrain from picking apart people when it’s not our place to judge. Let God be the judge of our errors and selfish ways. I’m no better than anyone in this world, and neither are you all.

ironic February 8, 2013 at 5:06 PM

Oh. And because its so simple and amusing to get ‘get a life’s’ panties in a bunch and it sounds like she is Alison out on bail or a friend there is a pic of someone by that name, from San Jose around that age.

CatWoman February 8, 2013 at 5:34 PM

Slap her in irons–then cut off her hands!

JAC February 8, 2013 at 5:40 PM

Sounds like #27s mom hasn’t made bail yet.

Why are you all so angry? February 8, 2013 at 5:57 PM

You are very cruel. Leave them alone, it’s not their fault. Focus on your own life.

Cowellian February 8, 2013 at 5:59 PM

Alison has a lot of enablers online, today.

Cowellian February 8, 2013 at 6:24 PM

Why are you all so angry? said:

Leave them alone, it’s not their fault.

Leave who alone, Alison or the victims of her crimes? Apparently, you care more about the thief than all the victims of her crimes.

Anon February 8, 2013 at 6:31 PM

I wonder if she is the same dirt bag I used to work with, her name was Alison Nash. Yes she would be dumb enough to change her name to Hash, all she ever did was drugs. Sad sorry pear shaped loser. Ginger kid to boot.

Mayor we need a picture.

@ Killjoy February 8, 2013 at 6:51 PM

You do realize they invented a technology called AFIS (Automated Fingerprint Identification System) right?

mika February 8, 2013 at 9:20 PM

@Get a life and @Wondering why we’re angry

You obviously are one and the same. And you must be new to Claycord or don’t understand what a blog is. If you don’t like what you see here, then go away.

Nokeem February 8, 2013 at 10:47 PM

#28 – You have to be kidding, right? Surely you don’t think that a community should not react to criminals (yes, criminals) who invade our area. The tragedy is that you don’t see what a wonderful forum this is. We need to know WHO, WHEN, and WHERE crimes are committed b/c we are banding together to protect and defend ourselves. Personally, I think things crimes are escalating quickly. There was just another blatant drive thru crash into a business at the Clayton Valley Shopping Center. I am hypervigilant and at the same time sad and shocked by the audacity of the criminals, Ms. Hash included. I think these criminals need to be treated as criminals. We all have the opportunity to behave badly, but we do not all succumb to easy money. Your comments exasperate me. Come on!

Forgiveness? February 9, 2013 at 12:49 AM

In a case such as this the whole premise of forgiveness is based on the offender being truly sorry for what they have done and doing what is possible to correct the matter. There is a difference in letting something go in the sense of forgiving. Then there is the sense that the offender has shown true remorse and has done the time so to speak and wont be recharged for that crime.
So, is there any evidence of true remorse here? Obviously not, as she would be continuing on the same evil course had she not been caught. Therefore should this person be shown mercy? Well, it’s true we all make mistakes and yes we should forgive others of their ‘mistakes’.
Is being a thief of someone’s identity a mistake? It hardly appears so, as this takes time to think through, which is a showing of deep lack of regard for others. This was not an impulsive move such as taking a 20 dollar bill that you watched fall out of someones purse as they were walking.
Is Mercy the same thing as Forgiveness? That is another topic. Mercy is often misdirected and misunderstood. Show mercy when mercy is possible or due.

Come Again? February 9, 2013 at 1:01 AM

‘it’s not their fault.’
Do you mean it’s not her fault she’s a thief? Did someone hold a gun to her head? Threaten to kill her family? Dismember her pets? if she didn’t commit these crimes.
I get what you’re saying now. Ok it sounds like she got caught up in drugs. This wasn’t really her though. But she possibly had depression or anxiety issues, which make a person more apt to use illegal drugs. Now she owes some people a ton of money. And if she doesn’t pay up they will do something very bad to her. So now she has to protect herself. What can she do? Best thing she could come up w/ is this. Is this sorta why you’re saying ‘it’s not their fault’? It’s really not clear. I wonder how that will fly in front of a judge?

Jeff February 9, 2013 at 8:53 AM

If you care more about the well-being of the thief than the victim…..

You must be a democrat.


Amazed February 9, 2013 at 2:15 PM


If you’re going to be snarky about grammar, maybe you should proofread your own posts first:

” I don’t know if #18 got the irony, but it is not lost and me.”

Cowellian February 9, 2013 at 4:21 PM

Quotation marks are also lost on #22.

Fig Newton February 9, 2013 at 7:21 PM

Smash her fingers………………..

I'm must not be getting February 9, 2013 at 8:40 PM

what’s going on w/ # 18. Is it really that amusing and i’m not getting it at all?

Cowellian February 10, 2013 at 12:06 PM

I’m must not be getting@45,
People like jay@15, who don’t understand the difference between “your” and “you’re” have no business calling anyone else ignorant. #22 understands the rule, but is having difficulties in following the conversation.
