HARDLY STRICTLY BLUEGRASS ASSESSMENT
This year’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival ran as smoothly as could be expected. There were very few reported incidents of criminal activity. A total of 10 incident reports were generated during the event for bicycle thefts. Four golf carts which belonged to the event were also stolen. Three of the four stolen golf carts were subsequently recovered, and one remains outstanding.
Traffic enforcement on Fulton Street was a priority for event coordinators. A total of 64 traffic citations were issued, by personnel assigned specifically to the event, during the festival. 25 parking citations were also issued to double parkers, driveway blockers, etc. Only two people were taken to County Jail for public intoxication. There were no misdemeanor or felony arrests from within the event.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE INCIDENTS THAT OCCURRED IN THE RICHMOND DISTRICT THIS WEEK:
MALICIOUS MISCHIEF, VANDALISM TO PROPERTY DE YOUNG MUSEUM
Richmond Station Officers responded to the De Young museum regarding a vandalism incident. Museum employees directed the Officers to the Neptune’s Daughter statue. The Officers observed that an arm had been broken off the statue. The museum employee informed the Officers that the arm had since been located in some nearby foliage.
This is the second senseless act of vandalism to this statue. This same statue was damaged in a similar way several years ago, and those repairs were estimated to have cost $30,000.
The investigation into this disgraceful damage to a museum exhibit is ongoing. Anybody with any information regarding this incident, please contact the SFPD.
ARREST: DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL; MULTIPLE VEHICLE COLLISION
PARK PRESIDIO BOULEVARD & CALIFORNIA STREET
10/07/2016 11:00 PM
A multiple vehicle collision on Park Presidio Boulevard at California Street prompted the response of multiple Police and Fire personnel. The Officers arrived to find one mangled vehicle, and the occupant of that vehicle was unconscious. Occupants of two of the three vehicles involved sustained severe injuries due to the collision.
Officers conducted a thorough collision investigation. The driver of the vehicle responsible for the collision was rushed to hospital for medical treatment due to injuries sustained in the collision. While there, it was determined that he may be under the influence of alcohol. The suspected drunk driver exhibited several symptoms of intoxication. A DUI investigation was conducted, and the suspect was placed under arrest.
The suspect is now facing felony DUI charges. We hope the parties involved in the collision make a speedy recovery.
ARREST: RECOVERED STOLEN VEHICLE; WARRANT ARREST
MIDDLE DRIVE WEST & OVERLOOK DRIVE
10/09/2016 11:04 PM
While driving through the Golden Gate Park looking for criminal activity, Richmond Officers found a U-Haul truck parked on the side of the road. The rear rolling door of the truck was partially open, and there appeared to be somebody inside the rear of the truck.
After running the license plate, Officers learned that the truck had been reported stolen. The Officers ordered the suspect out of the vehicle and detained him. A records check on the suspect revealed that he had two outstanding warrants for his arrest.
The suspect was taken to County Jail, where he was booked on felony vehicle theft and his warrants.
ARREST: POSSESSION OF STOLEN PROPERTY; WARRANT ARREST; RESTRAINING ORDER VIOLATION
48TH AVENUE AND BALBOA STREET
10/10/2016 12:30 AM
When the victim went outside to retrieve items from his vehicle, he noticed that the truck’s door was slightly ajar. Then he looked down the street and observed two suspects walking away holding his belongings. The victim hopped on his bicycle to follow the suspects and called 9-1-1.
Officers arrived and detained the suspects, one of whom was male and the other female. Both suspects were in possession of items taken from the victim’s vehicle. The male suspect attempted to deceive Officers by giving a false name. However, the two did not have their stories straight, and the female suspect quickly blew her partner’s cover.
Once the two were properly identified, it was discovered that the male suspect had an active felony warrant for his arrest. Officers also discovered that the female suspect had an active restraining order against the male suspect. Both the male and female suspects were booked at County Jail on felony possession of stolen property, among other charges.
RECOVERED STOLEN VEHICLE

For the second time in less than a month, a vehicle has been driven into a lake inside the Golden Gate Park. On this occasion, Officers responded to a call of a vehicle partially submerged in Stow Lake. Police and Fire arrived on scene and located a white 2015 Corvette parked in the lake. The vehicle was unoccupied, and nobody was located in the water or in the vicinity.
The Officers were able to contact the registered owner of the vehicle. The owner informed them that his vehicle had been stolen.
The car was pulled from the lake and towed away. The investigation is ongoing.
