Incident Date:
Friday, July 12th, 2013

The next community meeting at Ingleside Station will be held on August 20, 2013.  Thank you.

BE AWARE:  Last week, in the Park Police District, “laced meatballs” were located which a dog had ingested.  Also, in the Ingleside District, another concerned citizen reported that “tainted” food had been left on the street for dogs to ingest.  Please be cautious and report any suspicious food left out to the police.  Don’t allow your pets to ingest such items.

ALERT:  There has been an increase in auto boosts in the area of O’Shaughnessy and Bosworth.  The break ins are occurring around the hours of 9:00am to 12:00pm.  Please report any suspicious activity to the police.  Do not leave valuables in your cars. 

JUST A REMINDER:  Schools are out for summer session.  Please pay extra attention when driving around parks and playgrounds as children will be out all hours of the day.

Recently, a flyer was distributed to the community regarding scams targeting the monolingual Chinese.  These scams involve telling the victim that an evil spirit is following them.  They will ask the victim to bring valuables to pray over as an offering to the spirit. They will return to the victim what is believed to be their valuables. They will ask the victim not to look at their valuables for a day.  When the victim later checks their valuables, they find that the valuables were not returned by the suspects.

We urge all person(s) confronted with this scam to call 911 as this is a crime in progress.  By contacting 911, you greatly increase the chance of catching the suspect(s) so that the police can make an arrest.  If someone approaches you with this scam, decline their help, call 911 immediately and report it to the police.  Be a good witness.  Obtain a description of the suspect(s) and/or vehicles they are driving.

Ingleside Officers Kabanuck, Guzman, and several other Ingleside units were dispatched to investigate the attempted theft of a motor scooter. Dispatch further advised responding units, that the suspect was a man in his 20’s with long hair, wearing a green sweatshirt. When the officers arrived at the Precita Street address, they found the suspect standing next to the motor scooter. The officers phoned the witness who confirmed that the man standing next to the vehicle was observed trying to start it and drive it away. The suspect was also standing next to a shopping bag and a black backpack that he acknowledged belonged to him. A computer check revealed the suspect was on felony probation for narcotics from San Mateo County. A probation search of the bag and backpack turned up various tools including a crowbar, hammer, screwdriver and file and other items such as mail, checks, and DMV documents which may have been stolen in recent burglaries. The officers recognized the tools as items often used to commit burglaries of residences and vehicles.
