Crime Alert: Precita Park area; There has been numerous incidents where several bicycles have been stolen out of residential garages. Suspect(s) have broken into vehicles parked along the street and have taken the garage door openers and used them to open the owner’s garage to gain access. Once inside, they steal anything of value, including bicycles. You wouldn’t leave the key to your front door in your car, so don’t leave your remote garage door opener in your car either. If you happen to hear your garage door opening, and it wasn’t you, call SF 911 directly.

12:05am     200 Blk Onondaga                  Drugs
Officers Burke, Campos, and Barajas were on patrol in an area plagued with auto burglaries and street robberies. While traveling West on Onondaga street, they noticed two men who, after seeing the patrol car, quickly turned a corner and hid behind a parked car. Thinking this was highly suspicious, the officers stopped, exited their patrol vehicle, and asked the men if they could talk to them and whether they were on probation or parole. Both said they were unsure of their probation status. A computer check revealed one of the men did not have a record and he was released. However, the other man was on probation out of Alameda County with a condition for a warrantless search. The officers pulled him aside and searched his clothing finding a stash of methamphetamine. He was taken to Ingleside Station and booked on the drug offense. Report number: 130215111

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.
