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, 07-24-17 at 3:52 a.m., Officer Fulmore and Officer McQuade were dispatched to Nation’s restaurant on a report of a subject who had been in the restroom for an hour and a half and was refusing to leave, preventing other patrons from using the restroom. Officers knocked on the door for approximately 15 minutes, and the subject opened the door, saying he was cleaning himself. The subject, a 26-year old Daly City resident, was on probation and was subject to search and seizure. The officers asked the subject if he had anything illegal on him, and the subject admitted to having a little bit of “dope”. The officers took the subject outside the restaurant to search him and found two small zip lock baggies containing heroin in the subject’s pocket. Officers cited the subject for being in possession of a controlled substance.

On Wednesday, 07-26-17 at 12:14 a.m., Officer Tualaulelei was on patrol in the area of Westlake Shopping Center when he saw a vehicle exiting the parking lot onto John Daly Boulevard and heard the tires make a screeching sound and saw the rear wheels spinning in place. The officer saw the rear portion of the vehicle slide to the right in a “fishtail” manner and then jerk straight again. Officer Tualaulelei caught up to the vehicle and contacted the driver. The driver, a 27-year old Daly City resident, apologized for driving the way he did, said it was “dumb” and said he wouldn’t do it again. The officer cited the driver for reckless driving and for not having both license plates on his vehicle.

On Friday, 07-28-17 at 3:52 a.m., officers were dispatched to an apartment on the 500 block of Clarinada Avenue on a report of a subject who was running around aggressively. Officers contacted the subject, a 49-year old Daly City resident, who was involved in a mutual fight with his 15-year old son. In this fight, the subject was knocked unconscious by a punch. Paramedics who were trying to wake up the subject said the subject swung at him before fleeing into his apartment. When officers arrived, the subject refused to speak with them. The subject was cited for obstructing a police officer and was released to Seton Hospital.
On Sunday, 07-30-17 at 2:32 a.m., Officer Ortiz and Officer Murillo were on patrol in the area of Washington Street and San Pedro Road when they stopped a vehicle for a registration violation. When Officer Murillo contacted the driver, he said he immediately smelled a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the driver’s breath. The officer asked the driver where he was going, and he said he was dropping off his passenger at her house. The officer asked the subject if there were any guns inside his vehicle, and the subject said, “No, but I am in the military.” The officer asked the subject again if he had any guns inside the vehicle, and the officer said the subject again said no and started to take deeper breaths. The dispatchers told the officers that the subject was a restrained party in a served criminal protective order. The officers advised the driver that they were going to conduct field sobriety tests to make sure he was able to drive, and they asked if they could check the vehicle. Officer Murillo opened the driver’s door and found a loaded 9 mm handgun in the side pocket area of the door. The subject, a 28-year old Oakley resident, was subsequently arrested for having a concealed weapon in a vehicle, carrying a loaded firearm by a prohibited person, carrying a concealed/loaded firearm not registered, possession of a high capacity magazine, carrying a loaded firearm in a public place, possession of a firearm with a restraining order and for disobeying a court order.

On Sunday, 07-30-17 at 8:00 a.m., Officer Gill was dispatched to the area of 6100 Mission Street on a report of a hit and run. The reporting party was standing by his vehicle, and the rear bumper of the vehicle was on the ground. The reporting party (victim) told the officer he drove to Daly City to get his hair cut on Mission Street and when he was attempting to park his vehicle on Goethe Street, he noticed a black Ford Crown Victoria driving close behind him. The victim assumed it was a police vehicle and that he was being stopped. The victim said he exited his vehicle, and he said he was “aggressively” approached by a male who he believed wanted to fight. The 34-year old victim said they wrestled to the ground, and then he decided to get back into his vehicle and drive around the block to avoid further incident. The victim said as he was parking his vehicle, he felt his vehicle was being hit by another vehicle and saw it was once again the subject in the Crown Victoria. The victim was able to take a photo of the license plate of the Crown Victoria. This case is referred to investigators.


There was one robbery during the past week.

On Tuesday, 07-25-17 at approximately 4:30 p.m., a 22-year old Macy’s loss prevention officer was working surveillance and saw a subject who cut off cables from two purses. The loss prevention officer said she yelled “Hey!” to the subject, and she ran outside the store and the subject dropped his iPhone and tool he used to cut the security cables. The loss prevention officer picked up the phone, and the subject ran back to the loss prevention officer to retrieve the phone. The victim said the subject knocked her over the head with the two purses, knocking her to the ground. She said the subject then hit her with the purses several times. The suspect, a 25-year old Daly City resident, was later arrested in this crime.

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!
