       SFPD and Walgreens Kick Off 2016 Holiday Toy Drive

In collaboration with Walgreens drugstores, the San Francisco Police Department today launched its 2016 Holiday Toy Drive, benefitting the City’s children in need.

From November 18 to December 19, SFPD will be accepting donations of new, unwrapped toys at more than 60 San Francisco Walgreens locations. The goal is to exceed last year’s toy drive, in which approximately 2,500 items were donated at 30 Walgreens stores for distribution to San Francisco children.

“Everyone can make a difference in a child’s life,” said Interim Police Chief Toney Chaplin. “San Franciscans are generous, thoughtful people and we believe they will step up to brighten the holidays for children and provide happy memories for years to come. We thank Walgreens for doing their part again this year to help San Francisco youth.”

Donors can purchase or drop off a new, unwrapped toy at any San Francisco Walgreens that features a brightly colored and marked toy drive collection bin. Those unable to drop off a toy may also contribute to a Go Fund Me account ( established by the San Francisco Police Foundation to purchase toys for underprivileged children this holiday season.


1:45am       500 Blk. Gennessee                     Burglary
A burglar was apprehended thanks to the quick work of Ingleside Officers Hermosura, Parker, Hawkins, and Dilag. A homeowner called dispatch with concerns after a remote device alerted her to trespassers inside her home, which was being remodeled. The officers responded with Hermosura and Dilag in front of the home and Parker and Hawkins going to the back. When Parker and Hawkins entered the backyard they found a man trying to scale a wall into a neighbor’s property. They ordered him to “stop” but he continued to climb the wall. Fortunately, he wasn’t a good climber and fell to the ground into the hands of the officers. The homeowner, who was staying elsewhere during construction, arrived and said she did not know the intruder. She pointed out a strange car parked in her driveway with paper plates and a piece of cardboard covering up the VIN number on the dashboard. The officer’s opened the door, ran the VIN, which revealed the Honda was a stolen vehicle. Inside the vehicle were two bolt cutters used to access the home. The suspect was taken to Ingleside Station and booked for burglary and other crimes. Report number: 160950183[HAN1] 

1:34pm       2200 Blk. Bayshore                    Recovered Vehicle
An inquisitive Ingleside Officer Mora thought it was odd when the driver of an older Acura Integra moved from a “yellow” zone parking space into a “handicapped” parking spot at the 7-11 store. The driver and his passenger then exited the Acura and went into the 7-11 Store. Officer Mora typed in the Acura license plate into his computer and quickly discovered the Acura was stolen earlier in San Francisco. He radioed for backup and soon thereafter, Ingleside officers Williams and other arrived to place the driver under arrest. He was on active probation out of Alameda County after a conviction for auto theft. He also had a pocket knife and a glass pipe used to ingest narcotics in his possession. He was taken to Ingleside Station and booked for auto theft and possession of narcotics paraphernalia. The Acura was returned to its owner. Report number: 160942704

Ingleside Officers Parker and Ortega were dispatched to the scene of a hit and run accident. When they arrived on scene two Daly City officers were struggling with a man in the intersection. The suspect was the driver of a Jeep that collided with a traffic pole less than a block away. A witness called police after viewing the collision and watching the driver walking away from the scene of the collision. All four officers were able to subdue the suspect and put him in handcuffs. The officers noticed the strong smell of alcohol on his breath. He was given a field sobriety test which he failed.
