BE AWARE:  Last week, in the Park Police District, “laced meatballs” were located which a dog had ingested.  Also, in the Ingleside District, another concerned citizen reported that “tainted” food had been left on the street for dogs to ingest.  Please be cautious and report any suspicious food left out to the police.  Don’t allow your pets to ingest such items.

ALERT:  There has been an increase in auto boosts in the area of O’Shaughnessy and Bosworth.  The break ins are occurring around the hours of 9:00am to 12:00pm.  Please report any suspicious activity to the police.  Do not leave valuables in your cars. 

JUST A REMINDER:  Schools are out for summer session.  Please pay extra attention when driving around parks and playgrounds as children will be out all hours of the day.

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.

9:48pm       Ocean/Phelan                         Firearm
Officer Lundy was by himself patrolling the area of Ocean and Phelan Avenue when he came to a stop at a Red light behind another vehicle. Officer Lundy and the vehicle in front of him were in the right turn only lane, but when the light turned Green the Black sedan in front proceeded to go straight instead of turning. Seeing this violation, Officer Lundy decided to take some enforcement action and conducted a traffic stop. The driver immediately put both his hands out the window and seemed very nervous and had trouble completing his sentences. This made Officer Lundy highly suspicious and asked the driver why he was so nervous. The driver immediately said, “I have a gun in the car”.  With Officer Safety in mind, Officer Lundy removed the driver from the vehicle and secured him until back-up arrived. Once other units arrived, Officer Lundy searched the vehicle and found the gun in the center console. Turns out the driver had a restraining order prohibiting him from possessing a firearm as well as having a suspended driver’s license. The driver was taken to Ingleside Station and booked on several charges. Report Number: 130607483

Serious Incidents:

2:29am       Mission/Santa Rosa               Evading Police
Officers Padilla and Peregrina were on routine patrol when they came across a vehicle parked in the area of Mission and Excelsior Avenue that was occupied by four suspects. The officers drove by the vehicle and ran a computer check on the vehicle’s license plates. The Inquiry came back showing the vehicle as a reported stolen vehicle. The officers quickly turned around but had already been spotted by the suspect behind the wheel. When the officers stopped to make contact with the occupants, the vehicle pulled out and drove away at a high rate of speed making a quick turn several blocks away. The officers notified dispatch and followed the route the vehicle had taken never engaging it in a pursuit for safety reasons. Officer Padilla recognized the driver as someone he has had prior contacts with and knew his identity. A computer inquiry on the driver showed an outstanding felony warrant for his arrest. Rest assured these officers will be on the lookout for this subject and vehicle. Report Number: 130599727
