1:06pm       McLaren Park              Unlicensed Driver
Officers Seavey and Padilla were conducting surveillance in an area where several auto boosts had been taking place.  Several other Ingleside officers were in the area assisting.  They observed two males exit a vehicle and begin looking into several parked cars.  The males then boarded the vehicle and drove off.  Officer Seavey advised dispatch of the suspicious behavior of the males and provided a description of the vehicle they were driving.

A few minutes later, a vehicle matching the description failed to stop at a posted stop sign and Officers Elton and Rueca affected a traffic stop.  The driver of the vehicle admitted that he did not have a California Driver’s License.  He was placed under arrest.  A record check of the males revealed the passenger was on probation with a search condition.  A probation search of the vehicle located various cellular phones, jackets and hooded sweatshirts.  Based on Officer Elton’s training and experience, he is aware that auto burglars will change their appearance to steal from similar locations, to try and avoid being recognized.  The officers also located tools known to be used as burglary tools to break windows. 

Sgt. Miller arrived on scene and advised all officers to seize the evidence.  A record check of the vehicle returned registered to a rental car company with neither occupant on the lease agreement.  The vehicle was towed to Auto Return, and both suspects were transported to Ingleside station pending further investigation.  While at Ingleside station, they were mirandized and admitted to possessing some of the items in the vehicle.  They were booked into custody for possession of stolen items and burglary tools at the instruction of Sgt. Miller.  The officers took pictures of all seized evidence and booked all evidence at Ingleside station.  The suspects were provided with property receipts for the items.  Report Number 120221463

4:25pm       3300 Blk Mission          Robbery
Officer Bernard and several other Ingleside officers responded to a robbery in progress.  Dispatch advised that store security was in a physical altercation with two male suspects.  When officers arrived, they were diverted to an area where the altercation was occurring.  The suspects fled the area and jumped over a fence.  They were located in the rear of one of the homes and taken into custody without incident.  A search incident to arrest located several items which turned out to be stolen from the store.  One of the reportees from the store positively identified the suspects as the ones who had entered the store, removed items from the shelf and exited the store without paying.  When they were detained outside the store, the males began to physically resist the store employees and began punching them.  The males then broke loose and fled down
Mission Street with the employees in pursuit. 

The store employee suffered injuries to his eye and an ambulance was summoned to treat him.  He signed a citizen’s arrest to have the suspects arrested for the robbery and provided the officers with a written statement regarding the incident.  The suspects were transported to Ingleside where a record check confirmed one of the suspects had various prior arrests for petty theft, and that they had active warrants.  Both were booked into custody and all items were booked into evidence.

The officer took pictures of the scene and the victim’s injuries which they booked into evidence at Ingleside station.  They ordered a copy of the surveillance video from the manager of the store.  Report Number 120221974

As one of the suspects was being searched, a BB gun with an orange tip fell out of his front waist band onto the floor. Along with the BB gun, a bottle containing 200 BB’s was also found in the suspect’s possession.
