                                                PRESCRIPTION DRUGS

On October 22, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the San Francisco Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your medications for disposal to any San Francisco Police Department District Station. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.

A traffic collision revealed evidence of a serious crime. Ingleside Officers Toomey, Landis, and George were dispatched to a collision involving a newer Honda Civic and another SFPD unit with Ingleside Officers Ortega and Ragusa. The other vehicle was driven by a man who admitted to having consumed a significant amount of alcohol prior to the collision. The officers found several open bottles of alcoholic beverages scattered around the vehicles interior. His female passenger had a long arrest record for several serious crimes. However, what most interested the officers was a large amount of live and spent.380 ammunition in the vehicle. A few hours earlier, Mission District officers investigated a shooting involving the same caliber of weapon. The officers decided to tow the vehicle to impound and held for additional investigation. The driver was cited and released pending additional investigation and his passenger was released at the scene. Report number: 160827736

The report of a man throwing items around in the locker room prompted dispatch to send San Francisco Community College Officers Flood and Victorino. When the officers arrived they found the suspect standing near an open suitcase with various items including a bolt cutter, hammer, screwdriver, and spark plug attached to a shoelace, lying on the floor. Realizing that these items are sometimes used for car burglaries, the officers placed the suspect in handcuffs. A search of his clothing revealed a hypodermic needle and a small plastic bag containing methamphetamine. While the officers were on their way back to their station a call came in that their suspect’s companion was on his way to the college’s Wellness Center. Community College Officer Palacios travelled to the Wellness Center and located the suspect who had in his possession weapons and a quantity of methamphetamine and PCP. He was placed in handcuffs and transported to the College police station. Report number: 160830068

The sound of gunshots prompted dispatch to send Ingleside Officers Morrow and Thompson to investigate.

A witness told the officers that she heard yelling outside her home and then, a short time later, five gunshots. The officers canvassed the area and found no other witnesses or any gunshot victims.
