CAPTAIN RICHARD CORREIA’S MESSAGE
The suspect in the vicious attack and robbery on the 100 block on 9th Avenue last month remains in custody in lieu of bail that has been increased to two million dollars. The preliminary hearing is set of the week of February 1, 2010 and I will advise you of the outcome of that hearing.
This newsletter often contains information about financial elder abuse. Many of the incidents reported to Richmond Station involves the loss of a lifetime of savings. I want to share with you that studies suggest that for each report that government agencies receive at least four incidents go unreported. Moreover, while most of the reports that Richmond Station receives involve “cons” and lottery schemes by strangers, national data suggest that these types of crimes account for less than five percent of the total number of annual reports financial elder abuse. The same study noted that “trusted professionals”, family and care givers combined accounted for 55% of the cases.
If you suspect financial elder abuse please notify the police immediately by calling 553.0123. You can also share your concerns by leaving a message on the Richmond Station Anonymous Tip line by calling 415.668.7387.
