8:00am       200 Blk Russia                       Burglary
Ingleside Officers Morgante and Cortez were sent to the 200 block of Russia Street after a resident arrived home and found her garage door forced open and several items missing from her home. Ironically, while walking home, she saw a man pushing a laundry basket up the street near her home with a television she thought looked like hers. While Officers Morgante and Cortez questioned the victim and gathered evidence from the scene, including a crowbar and hammer used to break into the home, Officer Baldovino was in the area of Onondaga and Mission Streets when he spotted the suspect inside a Laundromat. As Officer Baldovino walked in to the Laundromat, the suspect, spotting the officer, ran out. Officer Baldovino gave chase and radioed for assistance. When the suspect reached Alemany Boulevard, he ran into the intersection and jumped on to the roof of a vehicle traveling Northbound on Alemany. The suspect, while hanging on the roof through an open sunroof, yelled at the woman driver to “speed up” which she did for a short distance before slamming on her brakes, sending the suspect to the ground. The suspect, not injured seriously enough to stop his escape, got up and continued running for a short distance before numerous other Ingleside officers surrounded and arrested him on the Southwest corner of Ocean and Alemany. The suspect was booked on numerous counts including Burglary. Report number: 130277161

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.
