Crime Alert Bulletin 12-31-18 to 1-6-19

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

It was a fairly routine week, so there are not many noteworthy cases this week.

On Saturday, 01-05-19 at 10:00 p.m., Officer Lizana was dispatched to an apartment on the 300 block of 89th Street on a report of a residential burglary. The 38-year old victim said she was out of town the day before when she received text messages from her ex-boyfriend who threatened to kick in her door and “hurt someone”. When the victim returned home the following day, she found the front door to her residence was kicked in but none of her property was taken. The victim said her 43-year old ex-boyfriend had no friends in the building and had no reason to be there. Based on the suspect’s threats of physical violence and the door being kicked in, Officer Lizana sought an emergency protective order for the victim against the suspect. On Monday, 01-07-19, officers went to the suspect’s residence in San Francisco and arrested him for burglary, criminal threats and for two outstanding warrants.

On Friday, 01-04-19 at 2:37 p.m., Officer Haas was dispatched to the Jiffy Lube on King Drive for a welfare check. The dispatcher advised the female who was on the phone was not making any sense. Officer Haas contacted the subject and observed she was possibly under the influence of a controlled substance. The officer conducted a series of field sobriety tests on the female, and he determined she was indeed under the influence. Officer Haas arrested the 40-year old Daly City resident for being under the influence of a controlled substance.


There were two robberies during the past week.

On Tuesday, 01-01-19 at 8:00 p.m., a 36-year old Daly City resident reported his former roommate came to his apartment on the 400 block of 89th Street and forcibly took his car keys out of his hand and took his 2016 Acura ILX. The reporting party was afraid of his 20-year old ex-roommate, and he waited until 01-07-19 to file the report. On Tuesday, 01-08-19, the suspect brought the vehicle to the police station parking lot, and detectives arrested him for vehicle theft.

On Friday, 01-04-19, a 42-year old FedEx delivery driver was unloading boxes from his truck onto a cart near the AT&T store on Gellert Boulevard when three males ran up to him and each one grabbed a box and ran and got into a nearby vehicle, only described as a BMW. This investigation is continuing.

Nothing to report.

Community Events/Information 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. 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 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!
