Officers Padilla and Dominguez were on patrol when they spotted a vehicle double parked in front of a residence.  The officers were familiar with the residence from prior police contact.  The officers pulled behind the vehicle, and the vehicle began to drive off.  The officers were unable to clearly see the driver or passenger, but suspected one of them might be the resident from the address where the vehicle had been parked.  The officers ran a records check of the resident, which revealed that he was wanted on an outstanding warrant.  The officers conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and approached the driver.  The driver was a female that the officers knew from prior police contact.  The officers told the driver the reason for the traffic stop, and she told them that she knew her boyfriend, the passenger, had an outstanding warrant.  The suspect in the passenger seat put his arms in the air and told the officers that he wasn’t going to run.  The officers took the suspect into custody without further incident.  The driver was also arrested for driving on a suspended license.  Report 120082215

While working plain clothes, Officer Gonzalez responded to a report of a robbery.  Officer Goldsborough also responded, making contact initially with the victim.  The victim had been robbed of her iPhone, but was able to provide a description of the vehicle the suspect fled in, as well as a partial license plate.  Officer Gonzalez headed to 7th and Market Street, an area frequently used to sell stolen products.  The officer spotted a vehicle matching the description given by the victim, with matching license plate numbers.  The officer pulled behind the vehicle, which suddenly stopped and double parked.  The officer contacted a male driver, and noticed a female passenger sitting in the seat behind the driver.  The suspect was reportedly a female.  Two other male passengers were also aboard.  Several officers arrived on scene to assist in further investigation.  The four suspects were detained.  Officer Gonzalez interviewed the victim further.  She told him that she was on the MUNI headed to her boyfriend’s house.  The victim exited the bus at the Persia and Moscow stop.  She took out her cell phone to call her boyfriend and let him know she was at the front door.  When she hung up, she was grabbed from behind.  The victim’s phone was forcibly grabbed out of her hand.  The victim yelled to her boyfriend as the suspect fled.  The victim’s boyfriend exited his house and chased after the suspect until the suspect got into the vehicle and fled.

The officers conducted cold shows of the suspects.  The female suspect was positively identified.  The vehicle was also positively identified.  Further investigation revealed she was also wanted on an outstanding warrant.  The female suspect was arrested for the robbery and warrant. The male driver was arrested after a records check revealed he was driving with a suspended license, and his vehicle was towed.  The other two suspects were released with no charges.  Report 120080827 ***BEST ARREST OF THE DAY!!!***

Officer Pedersen responded as backup for Officers Altamirano and Walsh, who were on a report of a hot prowl.  As Officer Pedersen was approaching the residence, he noticed a suspect standing on the sidewalk.  The suspect was rocking back in forth and appeared extremely nervous.  The suspect seemed to have spotted the officer, and repeatedly turned his back to him.  The suspect’s clothing description matched that of what dispatch had provided.  Officer Pedersen exited his vehicle and approached the suspect.  The suspect told him he was going to church and began to walk away from the officer.  The suspect suddenly started to run, even after the officer ordered him to stop.  The officer managed to grab the suspect’s jacket, but it slipped off of him and he continued running.  The officer caught up to the suspect and cornered him.  The officer saw a black object fall from the suspect’s person to the ground.  He immediately recognized the object to be a handgun.  The suspect was arrested and booked on several charges, including resisting arrest and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.  A records check of the handgun revealed that the suspect was not the registered owner.  Report 120081029

4:40pm       4700 Mission St               Warrant
Officers Burke and Carrasco were on patrol when they spotted two suspects walking in the roadway, outside of any marked crosswalk lines.  The officers stopped and contacted the suspects.  One of the suspects was extremely aggressive and began cursing at the officers.  The suspect gave the officers a name, which did not yield any results from a records check.  The suspect finally admitted her real name, and a records check revealed that she was wanted on an outstanding warrant.  The suspect was arrested and the second suspect cited and released from the scene.  Report 120081239
