Great Highway & Lincoln Way
Richmond Station’s plainclothes Officers were patrolling the parking area at Ocean Beach, one of several hot spots where auto burglaries occur in the Richmond District. An Officer noticed a man with the top half of his body inside a vehicle. As the Officers went to investigate further, they saw the man come out of the broken car window holding several bags of luggage in his hands. The Officers also noticed another suspect that was in a getaway vehicle nearby. Officers detained both suspects. There were also several bags of luggage and a purse besides the suspects’ vehicle. As the Officers continued to conduct their investigation, the victims returned to their damaged vehicle and met with the Officers. The victims told the Officers their car window was intact when they left it and they identified the property that was stolen out of the vehicle. Both suspects were arrested and charged with several felonies.

A victim walked into Richmond Station to make a robbery report. The victim had been walking on Balboa St. towards Funston Blvd., when he heard a car pull up behind him. One suspect ran up to the victim from behind and immediately punched the victim in the face. Two additional suspects exited the vehicle and started punching and kicking the victim. The victim attempted to fight back but was outnumbered and overwhelmed. The suspects ultimately robbed the victim of all his belongings and they fled in a black SUV southbound on 15th Ave.

Nancy Pelosi Dr. & Bowling Green Dr.
Plainclothes Officers were patrolling Golden Gate Park when they observed a man looking into and casing parked cars on Nancy Pelosi Drive. The Officers also observed a red vehicle nearby, that was being driven by a second man, who appeared to be acting as a lookout. The Officers parked behind the red vehicle and walked towards the driver, who immediately began to move his vehicle back and forth in an effort to get out of his parking spot. The suspect vehicle then fled at a high rate of speed, leaving the initial suspect behind. Officers detained the remaining suspect and discovered he had a window punch in his pants pocket. The suspect was cited for the burglary tool and released at the scene.

  1. Ann, Prop 47, sold to voters as a way to reduce state prison population and save taxpayers millions at the state level has significantly increased the value of stolen goods to qualify as felonies. Additionally, most narcotics possession (except huge quantities) and shoplifting also are misdemeanors. Only felonies result in arrests, misdemeanors get tickets which are routinely ignored. It’s a shame our District Attorney doesn’t publish a weekly report on county jail releases that do not go to trial due to “lack of evidence” or plea bargains from felony to misdemeanor.

  2. The police are doing what they can within a flawed system. Hopefully, common sense will return some day with passage of new laws that include actual consequences for criminal activity, but I’m not holding my breath. In the mean time I’m hoping that when my car is broken into, the thief is not injured and sues me for damages. After all, criminals, just like the rest of us, should be able to pursue their activities in a safe, supportive environment.

    DATE: 5/17/16

    Suspect was trolling nighborhood website and making disrespectful comments toward SFPD regarding matters she did not understand. Suspect appeared to be under the influence of chronic grouchyness.
