SFPD Richmond District Police Station
Weekly Update 06-02-2016
From Captain Paul Yep:
Monday, May 30, 2016, SFPD Richmond Station Officers stood by a stranded baby seal so it wouldn’t wander into traffic. Officers stayed with the seal until the rescue workers from the Marine Mammal Center arrived. The Officers named the seal “George Bison.” George is the call sign for Officers assigned to the Richmond District, while the bison is the mascot of Richmond Station’s softball team.
Here are some of the incidents that occurred in the Richmond Police District this week:

8TH Ave. & Clement St.
An Officer on routine patrol was checking the parking lot on 8th Ave. at Clement St. This parking lot is a known dumping ground for stolen vehicles. When the Officer drove into the lot he noticed a parked car and when he approached the vehicle he noticed three men sleeping inside, one of whom still had a glass pipe in his hand. Since the Officer was alone, he called for additional units. Once backup Officers arrived, they knocked on the window in an attempt to wake the men up. The driver woke up and was refusing to roll down his window, darting his eyes back and forth looking for a way to evade the Officers. The driver eventually complied and rolled down the window. While the driver was talking to the Officers, he was moving all around, acting erratically and hiding his hands on the side of the driver’s seat. Officers took the driver and passengers out of the car and searched the area where the driver was reaching, finding Cocaine and Heroin. The Officers also located methamphetamine, walkie talkies, a scale, a large amount of cash and several burglary tools. The driver of the vehicle was arrested and booked on several felony charges. The passengers were cited and released at the scene.
