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, 04-02-19 at 2:28 p.m., officers were dispatched to the parking lot of JC Penney’s on a report of two subjects looking into parked vehicles. One of the suspects was reported to be carrying a bag containing tools. Officer Herrera arrived and contacted the subjects matching the description who were standing by a vehicle. While waiting for cover officers to arrive, Officer Herrera saw bags next to the vehicle. These bags were deemed to be property stolen from four vehicles in the parking lot. The two subjects, an 18-year old female from Oakley and a 19-year old male from Antioch, were arrested for four counts of vehicle burglary, four counts of possession of stolen property, and four counts of conspiracy to commit a crime.

On Wednesday, 04-03-19 at 8:17 p.m., following a traffic enforcement stop in the Serramonte Shopping Center parking lot, Officer Covarrubias arrested three female subjects (18 and two 19-year old San Francisco residents) for organized retail theft, grand theft, and for possession of burglary tools. The three female subjects were positively identified as suspects to a theft that occurred at the Sephora store approximately 30 minutes prior.

On Wednesday, 04-03-19 at 11:10 p.m., Officer McCarthy and Officer Moody were on patrol in the area of Crocker Avenue and Irvington Street and contacted a subject siting in a vehicle that was blocking the driveway on the 300 block of Irvington Street. As the officers approached the subject in the vehicle, they saw the subject quickly place something in his pocket and quickly close his door. The officers asked the subject if had anything illegal on him, and the subject said he did not. The officers noticed the subject was extremely nervous, sweating and swaying from side to side. When the officers started patting down the subject, they said he became more nervous. The officers found narcotics on the subject’s person, as well as a Smith & Wesson ten round magazine under the subject’s shirt, and a Smith & Wesson handgun under his shirt on the other side of him.

On Sunday, 04-07-19 at 9:41 p.m., Officer Collins was dispatched to the unit block of Northgate Court on a welfare check of a subject who called 911 but wouldn’t answer the dispatcher’s questions. The dispatcher advised the officer that it sounded like the subject was on foot as he was calling. The subject ran into the kitchen of the Original Joe’s of Westlake and appeared scared and paranoid. A restaurant employee believed the subject may have been under the influence of a drug as he was not acting normally. Other officers responded to the restaurant and tried to get the subject to leave, and the subject became combative. The subject, a 39-year old Daly City resident, was arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance and for resisting/obstructing a peace officer.
