Crime Alert: Precita Park area; There has been numerous incidents where several bicycles have been stolen out of residential garages. Suspect(s) have broken into vehicles parked along the street and have taken the garage door openers and used them to open the owner’s garage to gain access. Once inside, they steal anything of value, including bicycles. You wouldn’t leave the key to your front door in your car, so don’t leave your remote garage door opener in your car either. If you happen to hear your garage door opening, and it wasn’t you, call SF 911 directly.

Suspects have forced entry or crawled through an open window to steal these items that were left on the front counter and easily seen from the street. When your business is closed, hide these items out of plain site and if possible, locked away. Always make sure your windows and doors are locked and secure before leaving.

Serious Incidents:

9:38pm       Chenery/Surrey                      Robbery

Officer Anderson responded to the 1000 block of Chenery Street regarding a robbery that occurred in the area. Upon arrival, the officer spoke to the victim, who stated that she was walking home from the Glen Park BART station when she noticed two unknown suspects walking towards her from Eastbound Chenery Street. The victim proceeded to walk past the two suspects, when she suddenly heard noises and was pushed to the ground. The suspects began pulling on her purse until the victim couldn’t hold on any longer. The suspects fled down Chenery toward Diamond Street, taking with them the victim’s purse, money, credit cards and a check book. The victim said her right hand and right hip were sore, but refused any medical attention at the scene. Several Ingleside officers searched the area for the suspects with negative result. Report Number: 130251074

CRIME ALERT:  There has been an increase in auto boostings around Precita Park and the surrounding area.  Don’t be a Victim.
Take extra precautions to avoid a criminal window-shopping inside your car. Never give them a reason to break into your car and steal your belongings.

                                                          Safety Tips:
*Try to park in a well- lit area and always lock your doors and secure your windows.
*Do not leave possessions on the seat or in plain view.
*Never hide belongings under the seat: This is the first place burglars check.
*Never cover expensive items with an article of clothing or blanket:  This presents a hidden clue to thieves that items may be underneath.
*Do not leave any important documents inside your car that contain your personal information.
* Do not leave phone or MP3 chargers plugged in: this leads the burglar to believe there are expensive electronics inside your car.

Remember, if a criminal is unsuccessful and is not benefitting from his criminal activity, the thief will move on, thus making your neighborhood less of a target.
