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 Monday, 03-25-19 at 3:00 p.m., Officer Taylor was patrolling the Serramonte Shopping Center parking lot and conducted a traffic stop on a Nissan Maxima. Officer Taylor ran the vehicle’s license plate and determined that the license plate was expired, and it belonged to a Jeep. This traffic stop resulted in the driver, a 43-year old Richmond resident, being arrested for possession of a loaded firearm, possession of a controlled substance for sale, possession of controlled substance while armed with a firearm, and for carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle. The passenger, a 38-year old transient, was arrested for a misdemeanor warrant.

A MUNI employee reported the fire. Officer McCarthy and Officer Dhaliwal were first to arrive on scene, and they were notified that there was a female inside the residence. Both officers were attempting to pull the woman out of the residence, but they had to run in and out of the residence to get fresh air. Shortly after that, the officers were having difficulty breathing, were coughing, and their eyes were red and watery. The fire department personnel arrived on the scene, and they removed the female from the residence. The two officers received treatment for their exposure to the smoke.

The reporting party’s 81-year old husband said he was inside his room when he heard his wife arguing with her son. When the husband (victim) told his step-son to leave his wife alone, the victim said the subject approached him, took out a folding knife and pointed it toward him. The victim said the subject then began to punch him, and he fell backward onto the bed. The victim said the subject proceeded to punch him approximately 25 times.

On Thursday, 03-28-19 at 4:32 p.m., Officer Covarrubias was dispatched to the McDonald’s restaurant on Serramonte Boulevard on a report of a male subject masturbating behind a tree in the parking lot. The reporting party said the subject was last seen on foot towards Callan Boulevard going westbound on Serramonte Boulevard. The reporting party said she was offended by the subject’s actions and wanted him arrested if he was located. Officer Mahan found a subject matching the reporting party’s description near Dave and Buster’s at the mall. Officer Covarrubias drove the reporting party by the suspect to determine if the subject was the same she one she saw. The reporting party positively identified the subject.

On Friday, 03-29-19 at 10:46 p.m., Officer Greene was dispatched to a collision involving a parked vehicle at 1050 King Drive. The reporting party said he was in his apartment when he heard a loud crash and saw a silver sedan with front end damage in the median and a parked blue sedan with rear end damage. The reporting party then saw the silver sedan driving away towards Callan Boulevard. The reporting party found a license plate on the ground and gave it to the officer. The license plate came off the silver sedan and was registered to a residence a short distance from the scene. Officer Greene went to that residence and spoke to the registered owner’s mother. As he was doing so, he heard a loud noise coming down the street and saw a silver car with front end damage drive past a residence, behind another vehicle. Officer Greene got into his patrol vehicle and initiated a traffic stop at Hickey Boulevard and Inverness Drive. The driver of the vehicle said that he was a friend of the registered owner, and that he was driving her vehicle back to his friend’s house, while his friend was driven back home in the other vehicle. The suspect admitted she had been drinking and failed the field sobriety tests. The suspect also admitted that she had been arrested for DUI a week prior, and this arrest would be her third in a year. The suspect, a 24-year old Pacifica resident, was arrested for driving under the influence, driving under the influence within 10 years of a prior conviction and for a DUI probation violation.

Social Security Number Scam

I wrote about this last week, and now I hear it is happening in other jurisdictions. In this type of case, a caller claims to be from the police department tells people that their bank accounts were compromised by either a drug cartel or by other criminal acts. In order for the person to be “protected”, the caller tells the person to withdraw money from the bank and purchase gift cards or bitcoins to deposit the money. The caller’s phone number appears to come back the police department’s phone number on the caller ID#, but it isn’t actually from the Police Department. There are phone applications that can easily proxy a telephone number to make it appear that the call is coming from another number.

We can assure you that we would never call and ask you to take money out of your bank. Please pass along this information to those you know.
