The next community meeting at Ingleside Station will be held on November 19, 2013.  Thank you.

Outstanding Police Work:  Members of the Ingleside Police Station have been hard at work, while putting their lives on the line, and recovered a total of five guns between a five day period, beginning Oct 31, 2013 to Nov 5, 2013. Among the weapons recovered were three handguns, one shotgun and one Tech-9 sub-machine gun all stemming from four separate incidents. Of the five subjects taken into custody, two were on probation and had extensive police records. We strongly believe that these great arrests may have prevented some serious crimes from taking place. Thanks to these great officers, the streets are a little saferJ.

Reminder:  With Daylight Savings in effect as of Nov. 3rd.  The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission has introduced a useful way to report broken/flickering streetlights. If you happen to be walking along and come across a broken or burned out streetlight, use the new app or call “311” to report it.  Keeping the streets lit a night, especially now that it’s getting darker a lot sooner, can increase visibility and help to reduce crime. The following information below will make it easier for you to report faulty streetlights:

Phone it in: City’s new “StreetLightsSF” phone app

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission unveiled a new Smartphone application that allows cell phone users to report burned out and broken street lights anywhere in San Francisco from the convenience of their own phone. The new application, called StreetLightsSF, lets the user pinpoint the locations of faulty streetlights by “dragging-and-dropping” a locating pin on a map and send the information to 311. The app also allows the user to track the status of repair efforts; and streamlines the process for reporting malfunctioning streetlights to the agency that is responsible for their repair and maintenance (the majority of non-City-owned street lights are owned, maintained, and operated by PG&E). The StreetLightsSF application is compatible with iOS and Android smart phones and can be downloaded from the Apple and Android stores and also at (go to “Customer Service” and then select “Report a Problem”).

1:56pm       100 Blk Bemis                        Stolen Auto/Burglary Tools
Ingleside Officer Johnson was on routine patrol when dispatch sent her to investigate a stolen car blocking a driveway.  She arrived at the address and pulled up behind the vehicle just as a woman exited a nearby home got into the car and started the engine. Officer Johnson, got out of her patrol car, and tapped on the window telling the woman to turn off the engine and get out of the car. The suspect did and was put in handcuffs and an examination of the key chain with a key used to start the vehicle showed they were all “shaved keys”, used by car thieves to steal vehicles.  Soon, Ingleside Officer Wang arrived to help with the arrest. He requested a computer check of the suspect which showed she was on probation out of San Mateo County for narcotics violations. During the arrest, the suspect’s boyfriend exited a nearby residence and was questioned by the officers. He admitted he was also on probation and lived with the suspect. A search by police of the residence turned up blank checks, bank statements, and check stubs not belonging to the suspected car thief or her boyfriend. The officers also discovered a small quantity of methamphetamine and a glass pipe used to inhale the narcotic. Case number: 130931408

10:25pm     Bache/Crescent                      Assault/Att. Homicide
A report of a stabbing sent Ingleside Officers McMilton, Peregrina, along with Lt. Delgadillo, and Sgt’s Smith and Martin to the intersection of Bache and Crescent Streets. When the officers arrived, they found a man standing in the street bleeding uncontrollably from a face wound. After calling for medical assistance, the officers asked the man who assaulted him. He pointed to a nearby home and said, “He’s in this house”. Officers went to that address and banged on the door asking the man to show his hands and to “come on out”. After exiting the home, the officers noticed that the suspect was extremely intoxicated. The victim’s mother told the officers that she heard a loud commotion outside her home and realized it involved her son. When she went outside she noticed her son holding his face which was covered in blood and the suspect, a neighbor, holding a knife in an aggressive manor. She said she ran over and took the knife from his hand and yelled at him to stop fighting. That’s when the suspect went back in his home. The neighbor was transported to the county jail and booked for assault and attempted murder. The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital and treated for a large laceration on his forehead. Case number: 130932252
