Back to School: As summer draws to a close, back-to-school season will be in full effect. Safety should be a priority for every family as children return to classrooms this fall. It’s crucial that all motorists understand how to safely share the roads with school buses, pedestrians and bicyclists. It’s also a good time for parents and children to talk about how to stay safe at school.

ALERT:  There has been an increase in auto boosts in the area of Monterey, 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.

Fraud Warning: Two days ago a San Francisco resident received a telephone call from an unknown subject, who was identifying himself as Captain Moser from the San Francisco Mission Police Station. The subject informed the resident that he was calling to collect an unpaid balance on outstanding parking tickets and that it would take $500.00 dollars to rectify the situation. The subject said the process could be taken care of over the phone with a credit card number. The resident, being suspicious, looked up Captain Moser on Google and saw that he was in fact stationed at Mission Police Station. At this point the resident was no longer concerned and proceeded to provide the subject with their credit card number. The money was then taken from the resident’s account. Be alert of this new scam taking place. The San Francisco Police Department will never call anyone to collect a debt. If this happens to you, do not provide any of your personal information and hang up immediately.

Crime Alert: Precita Park / Bernal Heights Area;  During the extended labor day holiday there were a total of 32 vehicles stolen in the Ingleside district as of 08/30/2013. Eight of those stolen vehicles were taken from the Precita Park and Bernal Heights area. Be sure to secure your vehicle (windows up, doors locked) before you leave your car parked on the street. Consider looking into getting an alarm or anti theft device such as a steering wheel club. This, for the most part, should deter most culprits from stealing your car. If you want to make it that much more difficult, consider installing a kill switch. Older model Hondas and Toyotas are among the most popular and easiest vehicles to steal.

District Wide Burglaries in the Ingleside: In The Last month of August there have been 7 reported burglaries throughout the district. 4 of those burglaries alone have taken place in the Bernal Heights area. The different methods of entries have been through unlocked windows, sliding glass doors, unlocked side doors, unlocked garages and in one case through a doggie door where the perpetrator squeezed themselves through the small opening. Also, homes under construction have been targeted and expensive tools and appliances have been taken. As the warmer weather of fall approaches, make sure to secure your residence and that all your windows and doors are locked before leaving. If you happen to see any suspicious activity around your neighborhood that looks odd or out of place, call the police immediately. 

Crime Alert:  An increase of robberies and thefts has been occurring in and around the Balboa BART Station and City College area. There have been five robberies in the last couple weeks alone in this area. Be vigilant of your surroundings and follow the safety tips below.

12:35pm     Ocean/Plymouth                      D.U.I
A victim was suddenly rear ended while stopped at a red light at Ocean and Plymouth Avenue. After being hit, the victim (driver) got out of his vehicle and went to go check on the other driver. When he approached the vehicle, he asked her if she was alright then asked for all the necessary documentation, so they could exchange their information. The suspect (female driver) could not follow these simple instructions and instead handed over a bunch of store receipts. The victim smelled a strong odor of alcohol and decided to call the police. Officers Dilag and Rock responded to the scene and made contact with the female driver. Officer Dilag also smelled a strong odor of alcohol and noticed that she was sweating, had blood shot eyes and was slurring her speech.

Officers Barajas, Campos and Quintero were on foot patrol in the area of Mission and Onondaga Avenue, when Officer Barajas observed an individual who he knew from prior contacts to be on supervised probation with a search condition. The officers caught up to the suspect and verified his identity through his California I.D card. A records check revealed the suspect had no outstanding warrants but was still under the supervised probation just as Officer Barajas had suspected.  With the provided information, the Officers conducted a search on the subject and found he was hiding a small plastic bindle containing powder cocaine. Officer Campos then placed the subject under arrest and transported him to the Ingleside Station where he was booked for the drug offense. Report Number: 130787615
