Crime Alert: Glen Park BART Station and surrounding area; A recent trend in robberies are occurring where suspect(s) are running up behind an unsuspecting victim and proceed to shove or push them to the ground and then forcefully take their cell phone, MP3 player and/or other valuable belongings. If you happen to see what may seem like a fight taking place on the street, it could actually be a robbery taking place. Immediately call (415) 553-8090 from your cell phone or “911” from a landline. Ingleside Police Officers are stepping up their efforts and increasing patrol to the area as well as sending our plain clothes officers to conduct surveillance. Remember, report any crime that you see taking place or anything that looks suspicious.

Weather related safety; Due to the inclement weather involving high winds, there have been numerous downed power lines and fallen tree limbs throughout the city. If there is a power line down in your neighborhood, for your own safety, do not approach it and stay a safe distance away while calling “911”.  Our headquarters will dispatch officers as well as the appropriate department to come out and assess the situation and repair the damage. If there is a fallen tree limb, call “311” and request DPW (Department of Public Works) to come out and handle the hazard. Also, be sure to look up to see if there are any broken tree limbs that are hanging from the tree that can pose a threat to people and/or property. Call “311” immediately.

Public Safety; In light of recent events at the Boston marathon, the police department will be increasing patrols in areas where the public gather including special events. If you see a suspicious package that does not look right or does not belong in the area, do not investigate it yourself. Create a safe distance between you and the suspicious package and do not use your cell phone to call the police. Use a landline to call “911” and provide your location and if possible the description of the package. Officers will be dispatched to assess the situation and take the appropriate action.


10:46pm     3300 Blk Mission                             Burglary
Officers Peregrina and McMilton were on patrol when they were flagged down near Mission and 30th Street. The citizen pointed to the intersection and alerted the officers that there were three individuals trying to detain a male subject. The officers immediately made their way to the intersection and took custody of the suspect. They then spoke to the two Walgreen’s employees and the one security guard, who said they saw the suspect come into the store and made his way to the candy aisle. The suspect then picked out two boxes of candy and tried to hide them underneath his shirt. The suspect saw that he had been spotted and immediately tried to make his escape through the rear exit door. The two employees and the one security guard gave chase and caught the suspect outside of the store. While in custody the suspect spontaneously stated, “I went in there to take bars, that’s how I make my money”.  A computer check revealed the suspect had two outstanding warrants for his arrest as well. He was subsequently booked on the theft and warrants. Report Number: 130336961
