7:00pm       4900 blk Mission          Fraud
Officers Morse and Pedersen responded to an incident regarding burglary and a forged prescription. A woman was detained by a supermarket’s security after being suspected and caught trying to receive medication using a forged prescription. The suspect came to the supermarket’s pharmacy and used a stolen ID card and forged prescription to obtain muscle relaxants. The pharmacist was skeptical at the large amount of medication requested, and questioned the doctor’s signature on the prescription. The pharmacist stated he has been working in the city for a long time and knew most of the prescribing doctors. He recognized the doctor’s signature as an ophthalmologist who specializes in the anatomy, physiology, and diseases of the eyes. The pharmacist said that an ophthalmologist would be highly unlikely to prescribe a muscle relaxant in their line of work. The officers questioned the suspect and witnesses and using their expertise, they determined that the stolen ID card was being fraudulently used. The suspect was charged with burglary of the ID card, intending to receive items under a false name, and using a forged prescription. They advised the suspect of her Miranda rights and transported her to Ingleside Station.  She was then booked at the county jail. Report number 120591266

8:46pm       Unit blk Patton             Firearm
Officers Almaguer and Barajas were patrolling when they noticed three men standing in front of a home holding open containers partially covered with brown paper bags. Based on the officer’s experience, it is common for individuals to conceal alcoholic beverages in brown paper bags. The officers confronted the three subjects and asked for identification. All three provided identification and it was confirmed that they were drinking an alcoholic beverage. One of the suspects was brought out to a staircase next to an open area, free of debris for further questioning. When the man sat down, the officer noticed the sound of a large object hitting the ground. The suspect had tried to discard a loaded handgun from the police officer. Officer Pedersen located the gun and handcuffed the suspect. The suspect was transported to Ingleside Station and was cited for the possession of a loaded firearm and public consumption of alcohol. Report number 120591448
