4:46pm       400 Blk Cortland                             Stolen Property
A man needed a battery for his electric bicycle and decided to purchase the item at a local store that sells electric bicycles, in fact, the exact brand owned by the customer. Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending upon your point of view, the store had a data base of stolen bicycles. The customer’s bicycle was on that list and the store owner called police. Ingleside Officers Alday and Mbeleke Eteti responded and questioned the customer who said he bought the bicycle ($3500 retail) from a friend for $400. He was arrested for possession of stolen property. He also had a history of arrests for possession of stolen property and drug related crimes. A search of his clothing revealed greetings cards, credit cards, fake identification, and more than $2400 in cash. He was booked at Ingleside Station. The bike, which was stolen last March, was returned to the grateful owner. Report number: 160060566

5:17pm       Unit Block Ruth                              Stolen Auto
A continuing theme of this newsletter is the high rate of thefts involving older Honda’s and Toyotas. On this date, Ingleside Officers Quintero, Seavey, and Sgt. Alvarez were on patrol when they spotted a 1996 Honda Accord traveling southbound on Mission Street. A man and woman were in the car with the man driving. The officers noticed that one of the required license plate stickers was missing from the vehicle and decided to stop the car for further investigation. When they did they discovered that the front license plate did not match the rear license plate. The front license plate belonged on the vehicle which was reported stolen two days earlier. The rear license plate was for another Honda of the same year. That plate was also stolen. The driver was on probation out of San Francisco for a previous conviction for vehicle theft. His license was revoked. He was transferred to Ingleside Station and booked for auto theft. His passenger was released. Report number: 160060306
