A woman, her husband, children, and the woman’s family went out to dinner at an expensive restaurant in the Fillmore District. When she returned home later that night she discovered her house keys missing. She used her father’s key to enter the home and called the restaurant to see if they found her keys. They hadn’t. She told Ingleside Officer Rodriguez that early the next morning her father was awakened by the sound of banging on the front door. He told the officers he looked out and saw a flashlight in the hallway. He quickly got out of bed and noticed the front door was open.

12:47pm     Unit Blk. El Verano                 Investigative Detention
Alert neighbors and an alert police officer may have prevented a home or vehicle burglary. It began when Ingleside Officer Rodriguez was patrolling and on the lookout for suspicious vehicles and traffic violators. Officer Rodriguez spotted a newer Honda Civic, with four occupants, and paper license plates attached to the vehicle. Rodriguez followed the Honda and watched as the driver parked on the unit block of El Verano Way. Soon, thereafter, three occupants of the Honda, wearing white t-shirts, exited the car and started walking through the neighborhood. Officer Rodriguez broadcast a description of the car and the occupants and soon, thereafter, Ingleside Sgt. Faye, Officer Ocreto, Officer Wong, and Ingleside Captain Hart arrived on scene. The three suspects were detained in the area along with the fourth man who was found in the driver’s seat of the Honda. The Honda was registered to a Vallejo address. Several neighbors told the officers that they observed the suspects walking through the neighborhood and were concerned they were casing the area looking for homes or cars to burglarize. All four subjects were identified and released at the scene and the driver was cited for a vehicle code violation. Report number: 180123257
