5:59am       900 Blk San Jose           DUI  Arrest
Officers Pereira and Etcheveste responded to the intersection of San Jose and Randall Street on a call of a person sleeping inside his vehicle which was parked on the Muni tracks. As they arrived on scene, they noticed a Red Mustang stopped in the middle of the road with its headlights on. Medics were already on scene and told the officers that they were unable to wake up the driver or either of the two passengers. The officers noticed that the vehicle was still on, and in drive. Officer Pereira reached into the vehicle, over the sleeping driver, and placed the car in park. The officers then removed the driver and the two passengers from the vehicle. Officer Pereira could smell a strong odor of alcohol coming from the driver’s breath. The driver also had blood shot eyes and spoke with a slight slur. Officer Pereira then conducted a field sobriety test, which the driver failed. Based on the officers’ observations, the driver’s symptoms of intoxication and failed performance on the field sobriety test, the driver was placed under arrest for driving under the influence. Report Number 120844720

1:40pm       1 BLK Leland               Fraud Arrest
Officers Fung, Trujillo, Sugitan and Ferretti detained a suspect who was involved in multiple accounts of fraud.  The suspect was caught depositing a $4500 cash advance check when the bank teller noticed that something sounded fishy. The teller though that it was weird that the suspect had a newly opened account and tried to deposit a $4500 check into it, while withdrawing a large amount of it. The teller called the owner of the check to make sure that he endorsed the check to the suspect, the owner said that he did not endorse it, and that the check had been stolen. The teller then called the police. Officers Pereira and Fung then arrived and were briefed by the teller. The officers then spoke to the suspect to hear his side of the story. The suspect claimed that he had received the check after doing painting work for the owner of the check. The suspect was then arrested for the fraud, transported to Ingleside station. The officers called the owner of the check back to verify that indeed the checks had been stolen. This was confirmed by the owner of the checks. Further, the owner told the officers that in July of this year, his home in Oakland had been burglarized, and believes that this man must have stolen that check during the burglary. The suspect upon hearing this allegation immediately asked for his lawyer, thus stopping officer Fung and Sugitan from further investigating.

Thanks to the efforts of the bank teller, with her quick thinking and senses, helped to bring this suspect to justice. She saved a man $4500 and possibly helped solve a burglary case that was reported back in July. Her heroic efforts to actually take the initiative to call the police should be commended. And today, officers at Ingleside station thank this teller for her assistance in catching this felon. Report Number 120845756.  That is why this, is the ***Best Arrest of the Day***
