Crime Alert and Community Update 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, 06-19-17 at 2:10 p.m., Officer Baroni and Officer Todaro were dispatched to the front of the PetSmart store on a report of an unknown male lying down in front of the store, exposing himself to passersby. Upon arrival, the officers saw the subject was lying face down on the sidewalk in pool of liquid that appeared to come from the suspect. Officers arrested the subject, a 50-year old transient, for disorderly conduct.

On Thursday, 06-22-17 at 8:19 a.m., officers were dispatched to Midway Drive on a report of three transients with a dog who were setting up a homeless encampment with bed mattresses near a fence on the property. One of the subjects, a 22-year old transient, had LSD in his possession and was arrested.

On Saturday, 06-24-17 at 12:52 a.m., Officer Collins and Officer Soyango had detained three juveniles at the Daly City BART station. Officer Fulmore arrived to assist and recognized two of the subjects who he arrested eight days prior for a carjacking following a pursuit into San Francisco. (The subjects were also believed to have committed a carjacking at the Daly City BART station the day before that arrest.) All three juveniles were dressed in all black clothing and were in the same parking garage just 50 yards from where the previous carjacking occurred. Officer Riney asked the subjects, two 16-year olds and one 14-year old—all from San Francisco, why they were in the parking garage, and they all gave inconsistent statements. Based on the juveniles being at the same location as the previous carjackings, their inconsistent statements and lack of any good reason for being at the BART station, the subjects were all arrested for suspicion of conspiracy to commit a crime, participating in a criminal street gang, an adult offense committed by a juvenile and for a curfew violation.

On Sunday, 06-25-17, at 3:30 a.m., Officer Murillo was on patrol and conducted a traffic stop at Flournoy Street and San Jose Avenue. The driver gave the officer an identification card, and the dispatchers advised the officers that the subject was a sex registrant out of compliance by not updating his registration every 30 days. They also said the driver had a suspended driver's license. The driver was arrested and brought to jail where deputies deemed the subject had lied about his identity. The subject, a 43-year old Castro Valley resident, was arrested for personating and making others liable, possession of a driver's license to commit forgery, an outstanding felony warrant and for driving with a suspended driver’s license.

On Sunday, 06-25-17 at 4:00 a.m., Officer Fulmore and Officer Collins were on patrol and saw two subjects jumping in and out of the dumpster area collecting aluminum cans near the Smart & Final store.(According to the Daly City municipal code, recyclables are the property of the authorized recycling agent once place in an appropriately designated collection location.) One of the subjects, a 50-year old transient, was subsequently cited for having a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and unlawful paraphernalia (a glass pipe) in his possession.


There was one robbery during the past week.

On Wednesday, 06-21-17 at approximately 9:00 p.m., a 15-year old Daly City resident was the victim of a strong armed robbery in an apartment on the 200 block of Cerro Drive. The victim said one of his friends invited him to her apartment with some friends. Another subject arrived at the apartment and started accusing him about talking negatively about their friend. The subject told the victim to empty his pockets and place his belongings on the table, and that he would “beat his ass” if he didn’t. The victim said the subject then punched and kicked him approximately a dozen times before telling the victim to leave. The victim said the other subjects watched and laughed while this was going on, and when the victim tried to retrieve his belongings, he discovered they were missing. The next day, officers arrested the suspect, a 15-year old Daly City resident, for robbery and for committing an adult offense by a juvenile.

Residential Burglaries

There were four residential burglaries and one attempted residential burglary during the past week.

On Tuesday, 06-20-17 at approximately 6:50 p.m., officers were dispatched to a residence on the 1000 block of Schwerin Drive on a report of a burglary. The 33-year old victim said he was home when he heard the garage door opening. He said he went to the door leading to the garage, thinking it was one of his relatives at the door. When he opened the door, the victim saw a female he did not know. He said the female mumbled and mentioned something about a found wallet. The victim said he tried to get the phone to call the police and then saw the subject flee north on Schwerin Drive. The victim believes the suspect opened his unlocked vehicle and used the garage door opener that was in the vehicle in order to gain entry into his residence. The victim described the suspect as a black female, approximately 40-50 years old, 5’6, thin build, dark complexion and wearing a lightweight dark blue jogging-type outfit. Officers checked the area but could not locate the suspect.

Between 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday, 06-20-17 and 12:45 a.m. on Wednesday, 06-21-17, an unknown suspect took a garage door opener from a vehicle on the driveway of a residence on the unit block of Huntington Drive and used it to open the garage and took a bicycle from the garage. The bicycle was recovered on the unit block of Seaview Drive. The suspect also took a pair of binoculars from the victim’s vehicle, a Toyota 4 Runner.

On Wednesday, 06-21-17 between 11:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., an unknown suspect burglarized a residence on the 200 block of Ottilia Street by breaking a glass pane window on the north side of the house. Nothing was stolen.
