3:25am       700 Blk Ocean               Burglary
Officer Busalacchi and several other Ingleside officers responded to a silent alarm at a local high school.  While en route to the location, Officer Padilla advised over the radio that he was in pursuit of a male subject who they had located hiding near one of the entrances to the school. A female suspect had also fled the scene. Several officers responded to the location where Officer Padilla was and pursued the subject as well.  The subject began jumping over backyard fences and the officers followed him until they were able to catch up to him and take him into custody.  He was transported to Ingleside station pending further investigation.  An arrest search located broken glass in the suspect’s jacket pocket.  A record check revealed the suspect to have several outstanding warrants. Officers searched the area unsuccessfully for the female suspect. 

Officer Padilla then advised Officer Busalacchi that the suspect had thrown a backpack in front of an address as he fled the area.  The backpack was later located near the school by Officer Busalacchi.  It contained several laptop computers with tags on them marked with the school’s name.   The officers returned to the school and located a shattered window, which they later determined was the point of entry and exit for the suspects.  They took pictures of the damages and condition of the building for evidence.  A custodian was contacted who was able to secure the school.  CSI was notified and the custodian advised they would be responding to process the scene. 

Officers contacted a responsible party for the school and requested any video surveillance footage they might retrieve.  At the instruction of Sgt. Nakano, the suspect was booked for the burglary. Report Number 130420326

 6:55pm       50 Phelan                      Resisting
SFCCPD Officer Edais was on patrol when he observed a male smoking what appeared to be marijuana on the campus.  As he approached the suspect, the suspect fled from Officer Edais.  Several other City College officers responded to his location and assisted in catching up to the suspect and taking him into custody.  It was later learned that the suspect was not a City College student and was trespassing.  Officers were unable to make a positive identification on the suspect and he was unable to produce any form of identification.  Their search of his person for narcotics was negative.  Because he was unable to be positively identified, the suspect was transported to the county jail and booked accordingly.  Report Number 130422544

 Serious Incidents:

7:00am       Santos/Brookdale          Robbery
A victim responded to Ingleside station and told PSA Flynn that he was on a Muni bus when a male approached him, punched him repeatedly and attempted to take his IPod from him.  The victim struggled with the suspect, but the suspect punched him in the back of the head and was able to take the IPod.  The suspect then exited the bus and fled in an unknown direction.  The victim said he would not be able to identify the suspect if he saw him again.  He refused medical treatment.  PSA Flynn contacted Muni dispatch and requested a copy of their surveillance video.  Report Number 130421982

9:51am       300 Blk Crescent           Robbery w/gun
Officer Chang was sent to investigate a panic alarm.  He arrived on scene and spoke to two victims who had just been robbed at gunpoint.  The victims said that they were in the back room when the front door buzzer sounded indicating someone had entered the store.  As they walked back into the front of the store a male suspect approached them, pointed a handgun, motioned toward the register and said, “Give me the money.”  One of the victims emptied the register and placed the money into a hand bag which the suspect placed on the counter.  The suspect then fled the area.  The victims were not injured.  Officer Chang viewed the video surveillance and was provided a copy of it for Ingleside’s investigative team.  Officers searched the area for any sign of the suspect to no avail.  Report Number 130420815

1:40pm       Bernal Hts/Anderson    Narcotics
Officers Clifford and Bernard were on patrol in a marked vehicle when they were sent to investigate a suspicious vehicle.  They located a vehicle matching the description.  There was a male aboard the vehicle and the engine was running.  The officers exited their vehicle and the suspect vehicle drove off.  The officers searched the area for the suspect and the vehicle.  Dispatch then advised that the suspect vehicle crashed into a wall close to their location.  The officers responded to the scene of the accident.  They located the suspect vehicle which had crashed into the wall and found it unoccupied. There was no damage to the wall in question.  A witness at the scene said she heard a loud crash and looked out her window to see a male running from the vehicle.  The male matched the description of the suspect who was driving the vehicle.  Several officers searched the area for the suspect, but were unable to locate him.    

At the instruction of Sgt. McDevitt, the vehicle was towed to auto return.  As officers did a tow inventory, they discovered various burglary tools and a clear plastic baggie containing a white crystalline substance believed to be methamphetamine.  They located paperwork indicating who the possible owner of the vehicle was.  The officers ran a record check and were able to positively match the name of the person on the paperwork to the suspect who was driving the vehicle.  Officers took pictures of the vehicle and accident scene and booked them as evidence. 

A presumptive test of the white substance returned positive for methamphetamine.  The narcotics were hand delivered to the narcotics drop box at the Hall of Justice.  Report Number 130421487
