 Holiday Awareness: Buying presents online is convenient, especially for thieves. Some follow delivery trucks and others just porch surf looking for opportunities. So, if you’re ordering online, arrange delivery for when you or a family member are home. If you can’t, try to arrange delivery to a local mailbox store or have the delivery held at a safe location until you are home. If you’re shopping the traditional way and visiting stores for your purchase, be sure to place your packages out of sight if you have to leave them in your car. However, it’s best not to leave anything of value in your car, even your trunk. Thieves watch mall parking lots and downtown garages for opportunities.

6:49pm       Mission/Geneva                      D.U.I
It was the night before Christmas and all through the district the officers were busy patrolling the streets and trying to stay warm with the weather a little “chilla”. But the hope for a quiet night was not to be for Officers Nagai and Archilla. Dispatch received a call of a vehicle collision involving three cars near the intersection of Geneva and Mission. When the officers arrived they found all drivers standing near their damaged vehicles. Two motorists said the driver of an older Nissan SUV sideswiped one of their cars and rear ended the other when it was stopped at a red light. The woman driver of the Nissan admitted to rear ending the stopped truck, but denied sideswiping the Jaguar. All drivers were licensed and insured.  The officers noticed the driver of the Nissan had slurred speech and trouble walking. She was given a roadside sobriety test which she failed. A computer check revealed she was on probation for D.U.I out of Palo Alto. She was booked for D.U.I and transported to Mission Station where a blood draw was performed. Later, she was taken to the county jail. Report number: 151106606

Serious Incidents:

11:54am     Persia/Prague                         Robbery
Ingleside Officers Archilla and Nagai were not through with their Christmas Eve duties. Dispatched advised the pair that a woman had been robbed of her belongings shortly before midnight. The officers sped to the scene and found a teary eyed victim who told them that, a short time before, she noticed a man breaking into a car in front of her home while she was standing in her doorway. The suspect took a bag and other valuables from the vehicle and then suddenly walked up to the victim, pinned her against the car using his hand against her face, grabbed her cell phone and wallet and ran away down Persia Street. A witness chased the suspect for several blocks before losing sight of him. The victim declined medical help. Ingleside units searched the surrounding area without success. Report number: 151107636
