Crime Alert Bulletin

When I mention “the unit block” of a street, this means the incident occurred at an address anywhere between 1 and 99 of the street.


Notable Cases

On Monday, 12-17-18 at approximately 6:08 a.m., Officer Soyangco and Officer Lizana were dispatched to the Planet Fitness parking lot on a report of a subject who was breaking into a car. The reporting party interrupted the burglary and was then “pepper-sprayed” in the face by the suspect. The suspect fled the area, and the 45-year old reporting party sustained a skin irritation and burning sensation in his eyes and face. Five days later, officers were responding to another call involving the same suspect. They brought the suspect, a 26-year old San Francisco resident, in for questioning and subsequently arrested him for burglary, illegal use of tear gas, carrying a concealed dirk or dagger and for being a convicted felon in possession of tear gas.

On Wednesday, 12-19-18 at 7:31 p.m., Officer Covarrubias was assigned to the Serramonte Shopping Center and was advised by Forever 21 store personnel that three subjects had just taken merchandise from the store. Officer Covarrubias saw three subjects running out of the mall and towards a white sedan. The officer chased the subjects, stood in front of the car and ordered the subjects to get out of the car. The officer then heard a female passenger yell, “go, go”, and the driver then drove forward towards the officer with no regard to his safety. The officer was able to get out of the way to avoid being struck by the vehicle, and the vehicle left the mall. This investigation is continuing.

On Saturday, 12-23-18 at 4:10 a.m., Officer Soyangco and Officer Covarrubias were dispatched to the Walgreen’s parking lot on San Pedro Road on a report of two subjects fighting. Officers subsequently arrested a 29-year old Daly City resident for public intoxication and resisting a police officer.

On Saturday, 12-22-18 at 8:54 p.m., Officer Ciucci was dispatched to the Arco gas station on Sullivan Street. A good Samaritan reported that he saw the driver swerving on Interstate 280 who then exited and drove to the gas station to put gas in his vehicle. The reporting party followed the subject and waited until police arrived. Officer Ciucci advised the subject that a concerned citizen had observed him swerving on the freeway and wanted to make sure he was safe to operate a vehicle. The officer conducted field sobriety tests and determined the subject was not able to safely drive. The subject, a 22-year old Half Moon Bay resident, was arrested for driving under the influence of drugs, possession of a controlled substance and for driving while unlicensed.

On Saturday, 12-22-18 at 9:34 p.m., Officer Todaro was dispatched to the area of John Daly Boulevard and Park Plaza Drive on a report of a vehicle swerving and cutting off people. Officer Todaro found the vehicle parked in the drive-thru line of the Burger King restaurant and instructed the driver to exit the drive-thru line. Officer Todaro quickly smelled an odor of alcohol emanating from the driver. He conducted some field sobriety tests and deemed that the driver, a 48-year old female Daly City resident, was impaired and arrested her for driving under the influence.

On Sunday, 12-23-18 at 1:06 a.m., an 18-year old Daly City resident led officers from Daly City, South San Francisco, and Colma Police Department on felony vehicle pursuit following an attempted traffic stop at the intersection of A Street/2nd Street. During the vehicle pursuit, the subject used his vehicle to ram a Daly City patrol vehicle and a Colma patrol vehicle. The subject was involved in a collision with a guardrail on highway 280 in San Francisco and fled on foot. A K-9 and numerous officers from several agencies searched for the subject. A San Francisco Police Department officer found the subject on Alemany Street, and he was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer, felony vehicle evading, being an unlicensed driver, hit and run and resisting arrest.

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. It is very easy to sign up. I like the fact that the site verifies users by addresses, and it won’t allow people to access to a neighborhood if they don’t live there.
