Crime Alert 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 Friday, 02-15-19 at 1:26 a.m., Officer Brenes was dispatched to the Shell Gas Station on Hillside Boulevard on the report of a transient male asking customers for money and refusing to leave.

At 2:48 a.m., Officer Brenes and Officer Dhaliwal were dispatched back to the gas station and were advised the male returned to the store and was refusing to leave. The officers informed the subject if he did not leave, he would be arrested for trespassing. The subject said he understood and walked towards the Colma BART station. At approximately 3:24 a.m., both officers were dispatched again to the Shell station, and the reporting party said the subject was asking customers for money.

When the officers arrived, they met with a male who was sitting on a chair next to a tent. The subject handed Officer Covarrubias a pair of nunchakus from inside of his jacket pocket and said he had found them and had them in his possession for self-defense. The officer asked the subject if he had anything illegal on his person, and the subject advised he had a pipe in his waistband and a small baggie in his sock. Officer Covarrubias found both items, as well as a wallet that contained an identification card not under the subject’s name.

Officer Cain asked the subject to roll down his window, and he immediately smelled a strong odor of alcohol emanating from the vehicle. The subject advised he lived at the residence he was parked in front of. The officer found out the 34-year old subject was on probation for public intoxication and advised the subject he should not be intoxicated behind the wheel of a vehicle with the keys in the ignition. Officer Cain asked the subject to exit his vehicle and go back inside his house. The officers escorted the subject to the door as the subject had an unsteady gait. At approximately 10:51 p.m., Officer Cain and Officer Ciucci were dispatched to the same address because the same subject was back outside of his parked vehicle, playing music extremely loud.
