12:00pm     Unit Blk Gorham         Burglary
Officers Park and Chang responded to a burglary.  They met with the victim who advised that he locked and secured the home and when he returned found several items missing, but no sign of forced entry.  Because the home was under construction, the officers did not notify SFPD’s Crime Scene Investigations Unit to respond and process the scene.  They provided the victim with follow up information.  They were unable to locate any sign of forced entry into the premises.  They spoke with a neighbor who has a surveillance camera and requested a copy of the video for follow up reasons.  The neighbor said the surveillance showed a male exiting the home and boarding a white vehicle.  The officers canvassed the area for the suspect and the vehicle to no avail.  Report Number 120166938
