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.

10:43am     Unit Blk Brookdale      Warrant
Officers Trail, Peregoy and Hopkins were en route to a call when they observed a vehicle double park and obstructing traffic.  A known female exited the vehicle and began walking away.  The officers recognized her from prior contacts, and were aware that she had an outstanding warrant.  They made contact with her and advised her she had a warrant.  A general search found the pants and shirt the suspect was wearing still had the store anti-theft sensors attached.  She was placed under arrest and transported to Ingleside station.  The vehicle was driven to Ingleside station as well. 

At Ingleside station, a computer check confirmed the warrant and that the suspect’s driver’s license was suspended.  An inventory search of the vehicle, prior to towing, located various items of clothing with the store anti-theft sensors attached, and a purse which the suspect claimed belonged to her.  Inside the purse was a California Driver’s License which did not belong to the suspect.  When asked about the license she voluntarily stated, “I use the license to drive because I know that mine is suspended.”  The suspect was booked at the instruction of Sgt. Gasanyan for possession of stolen property and driving on a suspended license. Officers took pictures of all items prior to booking them into evidence. Report Number 130524291
