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

Officer Soyangco and Officer Ortiz checked on two vehicles parked next to each other at Westlake Park, as they were in violation of a municipal code about after hours parking. The officers contacted two subjects in a Toyota and immediately smelled an odor of marijuana in the vehicle. The female subject said she was coming home from work, and the male had picked her up. The officers said the driver was exhibiting nervous behavior. The driver, a 23-year old Vallejo resident, gave consent to the officers to search his vehicle, and they found a digital scale, a loaded .40 caliber firearm, a 15-round magazine, marijuana and a bag of money. The subject said he did not fire the weapon.

There was one robbery during the past week.

On Thursday, 08-10-17 at 2:04 a.m., officers were dispatched to the 400 block of Irvington Street on a report of shots fired. The reporting party said she heard 3-4 “shots” and then heard a vehicle driving away. Officer Sheldon got of his patrol vehicle and noticed potting soil in the area and followed the trail to a residence where he saw the front room window was shattered, broken glass on the ground and the window coverings disrupted. Officer Sheldon smelled a strong odor of marijuana near the residence, and as he knocked on the front door, he said the door swung open. The officer said there was potting soil, mature marijuana plants, clothing strewn across the floor, and video surveillance equipment. Officers found blood on the bathroom floor. Officers were able to determine who was leasing this house and arrested a 29-year old San Francisco resident for cultivating marijuana in the house, as well as stealing electricity from PG&E by utilizing a bypass system. They also arrested a 34-year old Daly City resident for being a convicted felon who was in possession of and who fired a pistol in the house, as well as admitting to cultivating marijuana for the intent to sell. That subject was at San Francisco General Hospital while the investigation was initiated. The subject claims that someone broke into the residence while he was there and shot him in the hand.

Internal Revenue Service Scam

By now, you must know about this scam and how people have received phone calls from the “I.R.S.” telling them they owe back taxes or will face immediate arrest. In cases like this, the caller instructs the person to go to a store and purchase a “Green Dot Money card” or an “iTunes” card to use as payment. This past Friday, a 51-year old victim received a call at her work in Daly City from a subject claiming to be from the I.R.S. who said she owed $16,000 and would be arrested if she did not make a wire transfer immediately. The victim did exactly that the next day and made a wire transfer for $16,000—only to find out later that she was a victim of a scam. The “wire transfer” now seems to be yet one more method of collecting money, and I wanted you to be aware that the I.R.S. would not ask for payment over the telephone.

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!
