Weather related crime alert; with the current nice weather and increased temperature, some people are leaving their windows open in an effort to keep their residences cooler inside. Be extra careful, especially when you leave your home and leave the windows unsecured. Burglars are always looking for the easiest way inside your home. Don’t give them that opportunity for the easy access. Make sure to secure these entry points and leave them locked when you are not around.

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.


2:46pm       Unit Blk Bessie                                  Drugs
Ingleside Officers Clifford and Rueca were sent the unit block of Bessie Street after a citizen reported a “burglary in progress”. The caller said a woman and man that she didn’t know were in the front yard of her home. When the officers arrived they saw two suspects, matching the homeowner’s description, standing in a corner of the front yard. When the officers asked the pair what they were doing there, the male suspect said he was hoping for a romantic interlude. The man also had a laptop bag and when asked what was in the bag, he said “a laptop with a little bit of weed”.  The man said he had a medical Marijuana card, but it was not in his possession. The Marijuana was seized and he was issued a citation for possession of the drug.  Report number: 130381148

2:59pm       NB Highway 280/Alemany               Drugs/Traffic Violations
Officers Hornstein and Cortez were driving in the #2 lane, northbound on Highway #280, near the Alemany exit, when they were passed by a blue Mustang, driving in the fast lane, at a high rate of speed. The officers promptly turned on their emergency lights and stopped the vehicle a short time later. When asked for his driver’s license, the driver told the officers he did not have a California license, but he did have a valid Florida license. He also admitted that he had a small amount of Marijuana in a backpack on the back seat of his car. After a brief investigation, the officers found out that the driver had been living in San Francisco for a while and never attempted to obtain a valid California driver’s license. Technically, the driver’s Florida license was no good since he has been here in California for more than ten days. The officers cited the driver for speeding, possession of Marijuana as well as being unlicensed here in California. The driver arranged for a friend to come to the scene and drive his car away. Report Number: 130381273

Serious Incidents:

5:00am       Seneca/Mission                               Aggravated Assault with Gun
Officers Dilag and Gordon were dispatched to a call of a person “yelling and screaming” at the intersection of Mission and Geneva. When the officers arrived on scene they found a highly agitated victim claiming he had been shot in his hip. The officers called for medical assistance and before the ambulance took the victim away, the victim told the officers that he was wounded during a robbery attempt several blocks away on Mission Street. He said he was standing on the sidewalk when he gave Gatorade to a man who then demanded his money. When the victim refused the request, the suspect took out a 25cal. semiautomatic gun and fired three times at the victim. Wounded in the hip, he ran to Geneva and Mission where he was found by the officers. Additional Ingleside officers, McMilton and Peregrina were sent to the scene of the shooting where they discovered several 25cal. casings and blood on the sidewalk. McMilton and Peregrina also interviewed a witness, at the scene of the shooting, who told the officers that he heard two gunshots, looked out his window, and saw the victim running away and yelling that he had been shot. He also saw the suspect escaping on Seneca Street. Later investigations determined that the victim was a member of the Norteno gang and that the suspect may be a member of the Sureno gang. Report number: 13037937
