Residential Burglaries

There was one residential burglary during the past week.

On Saturday, 11/24/2018, at approximately 10:38 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 900 block of Brunswick Street on the report of a residential burglary in progress. The homeowner, who was not at home at the time, was watching a live feed of his surveillance cameras of his home and noticed two unknown males wearing black hoodies inside his house. The homeowner contacted his daughter to check on his house and call the police. The responding officers found the front door kicked in and set up a perimeter of the residence. While officers were clearing the residence, two suspects jumped over a fence of a nearby home onto Brunswick Street and fled on foot in different directions. Officers pursued the two suspects, a 25-year old Hayward resident and a 26-year old Vallejo resident, on foot, and they were both taken into custody. A witness in the area stated he had seen three suspects. The surveillance video showed there were indeed three suspects. Officers conducted a yard to yard search of the houses in the perimeter and found the third suspect hiding in a backyard of a residence on Acton Street. That suspect, a 33-year old Oakland resident, was also taken into custody. All three suspects had property in their possession belonging to the victim.

“Let it Go” (App)

On Friday, 11-23-18 a 30-year old Daly City resident was looking at the “Let it Go” app and found a Play Station 4 game console for sale for $200. The reporting party and the seller agreed upon $175 and stated the seller told him to use a “cash” app to send her the $175, and she would deliver the game console. The report said he sent the $175 and contacted the seller to arrange a place to pick up the game console and discovered the seller blocked his account. The reporting party said he made up a fake account and located the same ad in the “Let it Go” app. He contacted the seller and asked if the game console was still available. The seller advised it was for sale, and the reporting party asked why she was scamming people. The reporting party said the seller then blocked his fake account.

I caution you to agree upon a place to meet and conduct the transaction at the same time. I recommend utilizing the City’s “Internet Safe Sale and Exchange Zone” in the visitor parking lot at City Hall at 333-90th Street.

This private network ensures that only those who live in your neighborhood can join; users must go through a verification process. Neighbors ask each other for business recommendations; help in locating missing pets; discuss relevant local government issues; or connect for other reasons.
