Officers Hopkins and Uang responded as a back-up unit to a call regarding threats with a gun. Officer Aleman was in the area of Highland and Patton Street when he got flagged down by the victim. The victim said he was coming back from the corner store when he passed an open garage on the unit block of Highland Avenue. As he passed by, he saw a male and a female standing in front of the open garage. The suspect began yelling derogatory comments at the victim and the victim yelled back in defense, making the suspect angry, at which point the suspect said, “I’ll grab my gun and shoot you!” The victim fearing for his safety left the scene headed back to his house when he flagged down Officer Aleman. While Officer Aleman along with Uang and Hopkins were interviewing the victim, the suspect was leaving his garage and the victim pointed at the suspect saying, “That’s him, that’s the one.” The officers stopped the suspect and detained him for questioning. The officers asked the suspect if he had any firearms in his home. The suspect told the officers that he had several rifles and a couple small firearms.

The officers stopped the suspect and advised him that there have been numerous calls originating from him going door to door. The suspect told the officers that he would leave the area and as he did so, started shouting obscenities at the officers. The suspect then jay walked across a controlled intersection. The officers detained the suspect due to his demeanor and violation.  At the time, the suspect did not have any identification on him, so the officers transported him to Ingleside Station where they were able to obtain his identity.

Serious Incidents:

No incidents to report.

CRIME ALERT:  There has been an increase in auto boostings around Precita Park and the surrounding area.  Don’t be a Victim.
Take extra precautions to avoid a criminal window-shopping inside your car. Never give them a reason to break into your car and steal your belongings.

                                                          Safety Tips:
*Try to park in a well- lit area and always lock your doors and secure your windows.
*Do not leave possessions on the seat or in plain view.
*Never hide belongings under the seat: This is the first place burglars check.
*Never cover expensive items with an article of clothing or blanket:  This presents a hidden clue to thieves that items may be underneath.
*Do not leave any important documents inside your car that contain your personal information.
* Do not leave phone or MP3 chargers plugged in: this leads the burglar to believe there are expensive electronics inside your car.

Remember, if a criminal is unsuccessful and is not benefitting from his criminal activity, the thief will move on, thus making your neighborhood less of a target.
