 Entertainment Permit Violation– 1400 block Wallace – 6/5/16, 2:40 am                           

Officers responded to a call of a possible illegal warehouse party where people were reported to have been doing drugs and dancing. The officers arrived to find loud music coming from the facility, double parked cars along the street, and many individuals loitering about outside. There was a “security guard” standing out front who fetched the responsible party for the officers. The subject spoke with the officers and told them that it was a private party with limited entry. He would not allow the officers inside but the officers could clearly see people drinking and alcohol being served as they looked past him. Another subject came out who was also responsible for the event and told the officers that proper permits had been obtained. However, this was not the case as neither subject could produce valid permits. The officers questioned some attendees and were told that they had paid an entry fee to gain access to the party. The officers determined that the party was illegal and the warehouse that was being used was in violation of fire codes. The SFFD responded but the organizers refused them entry as well. Both suspects were arrested. The warehouse was entered and officers found a full bar stocked with alcohol as well as cash boxes. Both suspects were cited for permit related offenses and released.

 Auto Burglary Arrest – 3400 block Keith – 6/11/16, 5:20 am

Officers responded to a call of a burglary in progress, involving multiple juveniles, of an abandoned building. They located the 12 suspects, ages 13 to 17, inside the residence. They had entered through a broken window. All of the suspects were detained. A witness told the officers that he had been alerted to the suspects’ presence when he heard glass breaking and looked out his window. He saw two juveniles reaching into the broken window of a parked car and removing items from it. The two suspects then joined the others who proceeded to enter the abandoned building. The two juveniles involved in the auto burglary were positively identified from the others in the group. The owner of the boosted vehicle was notified and responded to the scene. He reported what items had been stolen from his car. These items were found in the possession of the two suspects. The two suspects were cited for the auto burglary and released to their parents. The rest of the juveniles were also released to their parents or responsible parties. (SFPD Case No. 160474484)


 Firearm Arrest – 3rd / Newcomb – 6/11/16, 11:54 pm

Officers patrolling in the area noticed a subject standing on the corner who, on seeing them, moved quickly towards a parked vehicle and leaned into the open passenger window before reappearing. Believing that the subject may have ditched contraband into the car, the officers detained the suspect and approached the vehicle. They saw another subject sitting in the driver’s seat. As the officers approached, the driver manually locked the car doors with her hand. Finding her behavior odd, the officers looked inside the vehicle and spotted an open container of alcohol on the center consol. They had the driver step out of the car and she did so reluctantly. They searched the car and located a loaded .45 caliber pistol in the passenger door side compartment, where the suspect was seen leaning into. He admitted that the gun belonged to him and was arrested. A record check revealed that the gun had been reported as stolen. The suspect was booked on firearms related charges.
