                          DUI Saturation Patrols This Friday

San Francisco Police Department’s Traffic Unit will be conducting DUI saturation patrols on Friday, December 30, 2016 between the hours of 7:00 P.M. and 3:00 A.M. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized DUI checkpoints and proactive DUI patrols are conducted routinely.

Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment by checking drivers for proper licensing, delaying motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving. Recent statistics reveal that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol.

Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000, not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out. Funding for this checkpoint is provided to the San Francisco Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to ‘Report Drunk Drivers – Call ‘9-1-1’.


3:34pm       100 Blk. Putnam                      Prohibited Weapon
Ingleside Officers Archilla, Filamor, and Malatesta were on routine patrol when they spotted a man, standing on the passenger side of a parked van, rifling through the contents of the vehicle. The suspect noticed the officers and quickly closed the van door and started running away up a flight of stairs towards Nevada Street. The officers chased the suspect commanding him to stop. He ignored their request and kept running. The officers finally caught up with the suspect near Tompkins and Nevada. The suspect fought briefly with the officers before finally being placed in custody. A computer check revealed previous arrests for various crimes. In his pockets was approximately $400 in various denominations. Inside the van, which was where the suspect was living, the officers found a significant quantity of marijuana. They also found a prohibited weapon, “Nunchucks”.  He was taken into custody and charged with resisting arrest, marijuana for sale, and possession of a prohibited weapon. Report number: 161035641

Serious Incidents:

11:45am     900 Blk. Avalon                        Grand Theft
A professional carpet cleaner arrived at the home of a woman who called the company to clean her home. The victim told Ingleside Officers Archilla, Malatesta, and Filamor that the carpet company employee mentioned that he likes to go to the gun range. The homeowner told the employee that her late husband owned a 9mm gun which she still had. The employee asked to see the gun and the woman went into the bedroom, retrieved it from a drawer, and showed it to the carpet cleaning employee. He asked the woman if he could buy it and she said “no”, and she asked him to return it to the bedroom drawer. He took the gun back to the bedroom, but she didn’t see if he put it in the drawer. Later, after he completed his work, he left and the homeowner checked the drawer and the gun was missing. She searched the home and could not find the weapon. Report number: 161038231

12:00pm     Unit Blk. Teddy                      Hot Prowl Burglary
A woman on the first floor heard noises from upstairs in her home and assumed it was her parents moving furniture. A short time later a man burst into her room by breaking down her front door. He shouted, “Where’s the money?” “Where’s the safe?” “Where’s the jewelry?” Just then, two other men ran into the room. She was told to lie face down while they searched her room for valuables. The suspects then exited the room and ran outside the home through the front door. The victim ran outside and asked a neighbor to call police. Ingleside Officers Filamor, Archilla, and Malatesta arrived and talked to witnesses who said the suspects fled eastbound on Teddy and then southbound on San Bruno. The loss was a significant amount of cash along with other valuables. Report number: 161034881
