Recently, a flyer was distributed to the community regarding scams targeting the monolingual Chinese.  These scams involve telling the victim that an evil spirit is following them.  They will ask the victim to bring valuables to pray over as an offering to the spirit. They will return to the victim what is believed to be their valuables. They will ask the victim not to look at their valuables for a day.  When the victim later checks their valuables, they find that the valuables were not returned by the suspects.

We urge all person(s) confronted with this scam to call 911 as this is a crime in progress.  By contacting 911, you greatly increase the chance of catching the suspect(s) so that the police can make an arrest.  If someone approaches you with this scam, decline their help, call 911 immediately and report it to the police.  Be a good witness.  Obtain a description of the suspect(s) and/or vehicles they are driving.

1:00pm       4900 Blk Mission           Stolen Property
Ingleside Officer Busalacchi and Suguitan  responded to a report of a man trying to cash a stolen check. When they arrived on scene, other Ingleside officers had already taken the suspect into custody. Officer Busalacchi interviewed a clerk at the business who told him the suspect presented a check from a local construction company. He signed the check and placed a thumb print on the back of the check. When the clerk called the business to verify the check, an owner of the company said the check had been stolen in a car burglary. He traveled to the business and verified that the signature on the front of the check was not his. The suspect was taken into custody, transported to Ingleside station and booked for possession of stolen property. The check was booked at Ingleside station as evidence.  Report number: 130518573
