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 Tuesday, 08-01-17 at 4:10 p.m., a 27-year old San Francisco resident was cited for misusing a disabled placard that was not issued to him. This occurred at 331 Park Plaza Drive. The subject used his grandfather’s expired placard, and his grandfather was not with him at the time.

On Thursday, 08-03-17 at 7:45 a.m., an officer contacted a subject who appeared to be transient who was sitting on the steps on the 6200 block of Mission Street. The officer saw a subject manipulating something in his hands and saw the subject snorting a substance via a straw inserted into a small plastic bottle. The subject did not know the officer was behind him. The officer asked what the subject was snorting, and the subject admitted it was heroin. The subject, a 29-year old Daly City resident, was cited for possession of a controlled substance.

On Thursday, 08-03-17 at 8:20 a.m., Officer Haas was on patrol in the area of Mission Street and Crocker Avenue and saw a subject drinking from a large red can in a brown paper bag. The officer said the subject looked directly at him and then put the bag inside another bag he was carrying. Officer Haas asked the subject if he had anything illegal on him, and the subject stated he had new needles from a “clean needle exchange”. The officer cited the subject, a 47-year San Francisco resident, for possession of narcotics paraphernalia.

On Saturday, 08-05-17 at 2:32 a.m., Officer Murillo and Officer Ortiz were on patrol and saw a disabled vehicle in the area of Callan Boulevard and Southgate Avenue. The driver of the vehicle was sitting on the curb near his vehicle. The officers could smell an odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the subject, and the subject told the officers he was hit by another vehicle at Classic Bowl. After officers conducted field sobriety tests on the subject, they determined he was under the influence of alcohol. The subject, a 46-year old San Francisco resident, was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and for having a suspended driver's license. It was later determined that the subject was involved in a collision with an iron gate of a church on Southgate Avenue.

On Saturday, 08-05-17 at 2:40 p.m., Officer McCarthy conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle failing to stop at an intersection at MacDonald Avenue and Schwerin Street. Officer McCarthy’s initial observation of the driver was that he was extremely nervous and would not stop putting his hands in his front pockets while seated in the vehicle. Officer McCarthy smelled and saw marijuana in the vehicle. The subjects said they were on their way to the hemp convention at the Cow Palace. While the officer was waiting for the dispatchers to confirm the driver and passenger’s identification, the officer saw the subject push something down under the driver’s seat. The officer asked the subject what he had just put under the seat, and the subject admitted it was a gun. Officer McCarthy arrested the subject, a 21-year old San Francisco resident, for being in possession of a concealed firearm, being a felon in possession of a firearm, being a felon carrying a loaded firearm, carrying a concealed loaded firearm and for being in possession of high capacity magazines.

On Sunday, 08-06-17 at 7:45 p.m., Officer Riney was dispatched to Dick’s Sporting Goods on a report of juveniles who had shot paintball rounds at cars in the parking lot in front of the store. According to a store employee, seven subjects went to the paintball area and collected items. The subjects attempted to steal the items but were confronted by store personnel. The reporting party said the subjects then left the store and to a nearby parked car and removed paintball guns from the trunk. The reporting party said all seven subjects had paintball guns in their hands and some of them began shooting sporadically into the air and the ground. One subject was seen walking into the mall, and the reporting party called security. Shortly after, two 14-year old victims from Pacifica reported they were walking out of the food court area near the south wall of Target when an unknown subject in a moving vehicle fired 6-7 paintballs at them, hitting each of them two times. Neither victim suffered any major injury. The victims described the subject who shot them as a black teenager with a dark complexion, with a possible “flat top” haircut and possible wearing a hooded sweatshirt. The suspect vehicle was described as a newer model black Hyundai Elantra. This investigation is continuing.

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!
