       SFPD and Walgreens Kick Off 2016 Holiday Toy Drive

In collaboration with Walgreens drugstores, the San Francisco Police Department today launched its 2016 Holiday Toy Drive, benefitting the City’s children in need.

From November 18 to December 19, SFPD will be accepting donations of new, unwrapped toys at more than 60 San Francisco Walgreens locations. The goal is to exceed last year’s toy drive, in which approximately 2,500 items were donated at 30 Walgreens stores for distribution to San Francisco children.

“Everyone can make a difference in a child’s life,” said Interim Police Chief Toney Chaplin. “San Franciscans are generous, thoughtful people and we believe they will step up to brighten the holidays for children and provide happy memories for years to come. We thank Walgreens for doing their part again this year to help San Francisco youth.”

Donors can purchase or drop off a new, unwrapped toy at any San Francisco Walgreens that features a brightly colored and marked toy drive collection bin. Those unable to drop off a toy may also contribute to a Go Fund Me account (https://www.gofundme.com/sfpdtoydrive2016) established by the San Francisco Police Foundation to purchase toys for underprivileged children this holiday season.


11:50pm     Visitacion & Sawyer                        Robbery
Officers are taught that they should always be vigilant and remember that routine events can become dangerous in an instant. This is one of those events. Ingleside Officers Zhao and Washington responded to a report of a robbery. The victim told the officers that, a short time before their arrival, he had exited a #8 Muni bus and was about to walk home when two men got out of a newer Honda and approached him. One of the men pointed a black gun at his stomach and started going through his pockets. The suspects took his IPhone, a wallet, and a tan messenger bag before getting back in the car and driving away in an unknown direction. The victim told the officers that his IPhone had internet tracking software. Officer Zhao put out a city wide alert with the tracking information. Soon thereafter Officer Hart, from Central Station, found the vehicle with the phone traveling northbound on Leavenworth Street, approaching Jefferson, near Fisherman’s Wharf. He turned on his emergency lights and siren and the suspect’s vehicle pulled over. As he exited his patrol car, the vehicle suddenly sped away at a high rate of speed. Officer Hart pursued the vehicle, but lost it in the vicinity of AT&T Park. Mission Station Sergeant’s Johnson and Perez, listening to the robbery broadcast which was giving the location of the vehicle by monitoring the IPhone tracking information, joined the chase and quickly caught up with the fleeing vehicle near the Millbrae Avenue exit on Highway #101. Soon thereafter, CHP units joined the chase and took over the primary pursuit which ended when the suspect’s vehicle crashed and overturned on El Camino Real in Sunnyvale. The driver was taken into custody and his passenger was ejected and pronounced deceased at the scene. The victim’s cell phone was discovered a short distance away from the suspect’s vehicle. Report number: 160950127

Serious Incidents:

1:15pm       700 Blk. Silver                                 Stolen Vehicle
Ingleside Officers Kikuchi and Williams were dispatched to take a report of a car stolen from the Hillcrest Market parking lot. When they arrived on scene the owner said he had left the keys in his older Toyota Corolla while he went shopping at the market. But what really concerned the officers was that inside the Corolla’s trunk were several firearms and ammunition. The officers put out a city wide bulletin and shortly, thereafter, Bayview officers found the stolen car, fortunately with the firearms and ammunition still in the trunk. The victim then told the officers he also owned several other firearms at his home on Madrid Street. He invited the officers back to the home where they found additional firearms and ammunition in an unsafe location. All the firearms were taken to Ingleside Station for safekeeping and the owner was given a property receipt. After tallying the list of guns and ammunition the victim claimed he owned the officers concluded there was still one missing weapon. A description of that weapon was broadcast to all officers in the City. Report number: 160948473
