Auto Burglary Arrest:

On February 25th at 10:30 am, officers responded to a call of an auto boost in progress on the 1200 block of Revere. They arrived to find a subject, who matched the broadcast suspect description, rummaging inside the car. They detained her as they conducted their investigation. They located the owner of the vehicle who confirmed that the suspect had in fact broken into his vehicle and itemized the items stolen from the car. The suspect was placed under arrest and searched. The property that had been stolen from the vehicle was found on her person. The suspect was booked on auto burglary charges at Bayview Station. (SFPD Case No. 150172143)



Auto Burglary Arrest:

On February 25th at 7:00 pm, officers were conducting surveillance in the area of 22nd and Illinois in response to the high incidences of auto burglaries in the area. From a position of concealment, the officers spotted two suspects casing vehicles along 22nd St. The officers watched as the suspects targeted a parked car and began to look into the interior compartment with the help of a flashlight. One of the suspects then acted as the lookout while the other broke into the vehicle and began removing items of luggage from the car. Just then, a pedestrian rounded the corner causing the thief to duck down. As soon as she passed, he got back up and continued removing items from the vehicle. When the officers approached to arrest the suspect, his accomplice began to walk away towards an illegally parked vehicle. He too was detained as he crouched down to avoid detection. The officers observed that the illegally parked car that the second suspect was approaching was unlocked and had the keys in the ignition. This is typical for get away vehicles, as it enables to thieves to make a quick escape. Identifying information for both suspects was found in their getaway car. Both suspects were placed under arrest. A search of their persons revealed that both suspects had burglary tools in their possession. They were booked at Bayview Station on auto burglary, possession of burglary tools, and conspiracy charges.   (SFPD Case No. 150174575)



Firearm Arrest:

On February 25th at 8:15 pm, officers responded to a call of a shooting victim in the area of 3rd and South. They located a 23 year old male subject, who had sustained a gunshot wound to his calf, outside the driver’s door of his vehicle. As he was being rendered aid, the officers noticed a magazine of a semi-automatic pistol on the floorboard of his car. They searched the vehicle for the weapon and located a loaded .38 caliber handgun in the center consol. The subject was uncooperative with the officers as they conducted their interview. They learned through their investigation and witness statements that the wounded subject was possibly also responsible for shooting a weapon. The subject was transported to SFGH where he was treated for his injuries prior to being booked at County Jail on multiple weapons violations. This incident is under investigation. (SFPD Case No. 150174707)



Burglary Arrest:

On February 21st, a leather couch had been stolen from a business establishment on the 1500 block of 17th St. The victim reported that he had purchased the couch from an ad on Craigslist the previous day and had it delivered. He also told the officers that after the burglary, he checked Craigslist and found the stolen couch being offered for sale in a new advertisement by another party. The inspector investigating the incident made contact with the seller and, pretending to be an interested buyer, arranged to meet up to make the purchase. An undercover officer met with the two suspects who were selling the couch on the 1400 block of South Van Ness on February 26th at 3:00 pm. On inquiry, the officer was told by one of the suspects that they had received the couch from a relative who had recently died. After a price was agreed upon and the “purchase” was made, the arrest team took both suspects into custody. They were booked at Bayview Station on possession of stolen property and conspiracy charges. (SFPD Case No. 150167439)
