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, 07-10-17 at 7:35 a.m., officers were dispatched to the roof parking structure of the Westlake Shopping Center on a report of a subject refusing to leave. The reporting party said the subject appeared to be under the influence and was taking off his clothes. As officers arrived, they saw a subject matching the description who appeared to be under the influence. The subject, a 30-year old Daly City resident, consented to being searched, and officers found methamphetamine and a used pipe in his pockets. The officer also noticed that a fluorescent light fixture inside the stairwell was completely burned. The subject was arrested for causing a fire to the fixture, possession of a controlled substance and possession of narcotics paraphernalia.

On Wednesday, 07-12-17 at approximately 3:10 p.m., officers were dispatched to a residence on the 200 block of Vista Grande Avenue on a report of a subject in violation of a restraining order. The reporting party said his brother was inside the residence, violating a restraining order he had against him. Officer Digiacomo saw the subject in front of the residence, and the subject spontaneously told the officer that he was trying to gather belongings from the residence because he was just served with a restraining order. Officer Digiacomo patted down the 46-year old subject and found an open pint bottle of vodka in his pants pocket, two 4.5” methamphetamine pipes from his other pants pocket and a glass container which had a green leafy-type substance consistent with marijuana. The subject told the officer he had a medical marijuana card in his wallet. As the officer continued to remove property from the subject’s pockets, the officer found two clear plastic baggies containing a substance believed to be crystal methamphetamine and also 12 white pills believed to be Vicodin inside a plastic piece of cellophane. The subject was arrested for being in possession of a controlled substance for sale, possession of a controlled substance, and for possession of drug paraphernalia.

On Wednesday, 07-12-17 at 3:14 p.m., Officer Perez was on patrol near Junipero Serra Boulevard and John Daly Boulevard and contacted a pedestrian fitting the description of a subject who was reported to be an aggressive pan handler that frequented the Westlake Shopping Center area. The subject became angry with the officer and raised his arms and clenched his fists as he took two steps toward the officer. The subject was on probation, and Officer Perez asked him if he had anything illegal in his possession. The subject was uncooperative and hostile, and Officer Cabatic arrived to assist. The subject, a 35-year old Pacifica resident, was subsequently cited for being a felon in possession of tear gas.

On Thursday, 07-13-17 at 9:08 a.m., Officer Haas saw two parked vehicles each containing a sleeping subject at the end of Olympic Drive near Thornton Beach. The officer woke up one subject who provided him with a false government identification card. The subject, a 25-year old San Francisco resident, said he got the identification card in Mexico. He was subsequently cited for providing a false government identification card to a police officer.

On Sunday, 07-16-17 at 6:19 p.m., subsequent to a traffic stop on the unit block of Oceanside Drive, Officer Fulmore and Officer Collins arrested a 26-year old Daly City resident for being in possession of a stolen vehicle, receiving stolen property and misappropriation of lost property (a wallet).


There were two robberies during the past week.

On Monday, 07-10-17, a 15-year old Colma resident reported he bought a pair of Nike Jordan shoes at the mall and took the bus to the Colma BART station. The victim and his friend were walking on A Street towards Hillside Boulevard when they noticed a dark gray older model Lexus GS or ES traveling slowly on Hillside Boulevard and saw that the driver was staring at them. The victim and his friend then walked on Byrne Street and saw the vehicle behind them again. He said the vehicle drove onto the sidewalk near Policita School and blocked their path. The victim said he and his friend walked around and continued walking onto Abbot Street where they saw the same car park at the end of the street. As the victim and his friend passed the vehicle, the victim said two passengers exit the rear of the vehicle and walked up to them, and one subject quickly grabbed the victim’s shopping bag. The victim attempted to hold onto the bag, and he said the shoebox fell onto the ground. The victim said one subject quickly picked up the box and got back into the vehicle. The victim could only describe the suspect as a white male, 18-25 years old, approximately 6’2” to 6’5”, stocky build, short blonde hair and wearing a black tee shirt. The victim described the second suspect as a white male, 18-25 years old, approximately 5’9”, skinny build, and wearing a hoodie with the hood pulled over his head. Because the victim waited to report this incident, officers were unable to locate anyone in the area.

On Sunday, 07-16-17 at 5:42 p.m., a Macy’s loss prevention officer was the victim of a robbery by a suspect who shoved her when she tried to detain a suspect for shoplifting. The suspect, a 40-year old San Francisco resident, said to the loss prevention officer, “Do you want to get shot?” while being apprehended. The subject was arrested for robbery and for two outstanding warrants.

I.R.S Scams

I have been contacted by a couple of residents who said they have received messaged from someone claiming to work for the I.R.S. and that the resident owes back taxes or the resident would be arrested immediately. I think you all know by now that this is a scam, but I just wanted to remind you that this seems to be surfacing again.

AT&T Internet Scam

One resident advised me that he received an e-mail saying he received a call from someone saying he was from the AT&T Internet service and that he wanted to hook up the resident’s computer to a remote computer so that he would repair what he claimed as a problem. Please DO NOT fall victim to this. Always contact your internet provider directly. If you did not call them, don’t let them fool you!

San Mateo County Alert System (SMC)

This alert is a free digital communication system used by emergency management agencies and first responders to send emergency alerts, notifications and updates to portable digital devices. In an emergency situation, an alert will be sent by San Mateo County authorized personnel and you will receive messages on your cell phone or mobile device. Most carriers activate the service automatically. To receive emergency alerts, sign up by visiting According to County records, Daly City has the lowest number of registered users in the county. Please sign up today! is a free private social networking website for your neighborhood. 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, and 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 actually live there. Please note: the City of Daly City and/or the Police Department cannot see what residents post—we are only allowed to post information. There is also a mobile application, or you can have it sent to your e-mail. Give it a try!
