Tuesday, July 16th, 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.

1:50pm       Naples/Italy                   Stolen Vehicle/Drugs
Officers Ng and Tillan were on routine patrol and in the area of Russia and Madrid when they spotted a reckless vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed from a block away. The officers saw that this Black two door coupe failed to stop at a posted stop sign and continued up the street in excess of 60 miles per hour, faster than the posted 25 mile per hour speed limit. The officers jumped into action and tried to effect a traffic stop, but lost sight of the vehicle as it was traveling to fast. The officers concluded that pursuing the vehicle would jeopardize people and property and immediately shut down all their lights and siren in their patrol car. Officer Ng and Tillan notified dispatch of what they just observed and proceeded to drive through the area.  Minutes later, they arrived at the intersection of Naples and Italy and saw that two vehicles had just collided and that one of the vehicle’s involved was the same Black 2 door vehicle that was driving recklessly. Several witnesses at the scene told the officers that the occupants inside the Black coupe jumped out after the accident and fled the scene on foot. The witnesses provided the officers with descriptions of the suspects. Officer Tillan remained at the accident scene to tend with the injured, while Officer Ng searched the area for the outstanding suspects. Around the corner, Officer Ng spotted one suspect who was running away from the scene. After a brief foot chase, Officer Ng was able to corral the suspect and take him into custody. A search of his person revealed methamphetamine in one of his pockets. Several Ingleside units searched the surrounding area and could not locate any of the other suspects. The suspect in custody was taken to Ingleside Station and booked on numerous felony charges including felony Hit and Run as well as possession of drugs. The occupants of the victim vehicle were taken to the local hospital and treated for neck and back injuries. Report Number: 130585061
