CAPTAIN SHARON FERRIGNO’S MESSAGE
Officers from Richmond Station did a great job apprehending a total of 4 subjects in connection with stolen vehicles and auto burglaries this week. The men and women of Richmond Station are briefed daily regarding crime trends and when we partner with the community this leads to great arrests. It is an example of how our team work paid off. With Halloween approaching officers will be out patrolling to make sure that everyone has a safe and happy Halloween. Please bring your trick or treaters to Richmond Station for a spooktacular treat.
Our next Community meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at 6pm. It will be in the Community Room, here at Richmond Station, 461 6th Ave.
On 10/21/13 at 4:15am, officers were traveling west on Fulton St, preparing to stop a vehicle for a mechanical violation. Upon running the license plate in the computer, the vehicle came back stolen. Officers called for another unit and stopped the vehicle on the 800 block of 36th Ave. There were 3 occupants and as the vehicle came to a stop, the driver climbed over the driver’s seat into the rear passenger seat. Officers ordered the occupants out one at a time and took them into custody. The occupants were in possession of burglary tools, (shaved keys, flashlight, metal file, etc) and were also on probation. The registered owner of the vehicle was contacted and came to the scene. Several items in the car did not belong to him, including a telescope and a vacuum. The three occupants, a 43yr old male, a 52yr old male and a 50 year old female were charged with stolen auto, possession of burglary tools and probation violations.
On 10/21/13 at 4:48am, officers responded to a call of a male breaking into a vehicle at 42nd Ave and Geary. The caller described the suspect and officers located the male at a nearby bus stop. When asked why he was being detained, they informed him that he was seen breaking into a car. The suspect replied, “Ok man, you got me. I took the CD case and a car charger.” He neglected to tell the officers about the stereo face plate which was also recovered and identified by the registered owner. The 28 year old male was charged with burglary and possession of stolen property.
On 10/22/13, at 5:55pm, plainclothes officers observed a male walking along Fulton St at 39th Ave, peering into the windows of parked vehicles. The male then walked north on 41st Ave, continuing to look into cars. The suspect was eventually detained on the 700 block of 41st Ave. He informed the officers that he was on parole. He was also a sex registrant who was out of compliance by not registering within the required time frame. Officers contacted the parole agent who informed them that the male should also be wearing a GPS equipped tracking unit to his ankle. The suspect was not currently wearing one. The 31 year old male was charged with a parole violation, possession of burglary tools and narcotic paraphernalia.
On 10/22/13 at 11:15pm, a male in his vehicle was traveling west on Geary, preparing to make a left turn onto 26th Ave. At some point while making this turn the driver ran into the building located on the south/west corner of 26th and Geary, driving through the front door and front window. The driver stated that he needed to swerve to avoid a car that had cut him off. The driver, a 25yr old male, who was over twice the legal limit, was charged with driving under the influence.
On 10/23/13 at 10:45pm, the suspect was driving, while intoxicated, westbound on Geary towards 9th Ave. The driver hit a parked vehicle, completely tearing off the victim’s rear bumper. The suspect’s vehicle had a wheel come off with the suspension arm still attached and continued north on 9th Ave. As the driver was approaching Lake St, he hit two parked vehicles on 9th before finally coming to a stop. The 23yr old male was charged with hit and run and driving under the influence.
On 10/20/13, between 12:40am and 6am on the 5800 block of Geary, the suspect cut a padlock to the rear door of a business. The suspect took wine, live crabs, live lobsters, marinated fish and coins from the register.
On 10/20/13 at 2am the victim was walking east on Turk St, near Willard North. She was approached by four black males, two of which pushed her into a bush. As the victim was screaming for help, one of the two took her iPhone from her hand and they all ran to a nearby dark colored 4 door sedan. The victim reported this incident two days later.
Between 10/20/13, 6pm and 10/22/13, 6:45am on the 100 block of 9th Ave, a suspect entered a garage of a flat and took two bikes. There were no signs of forced entry.

Between 10/22/13, 10pm and 10/23/13, 6am on the 6100 block of Geary, a suspect entered a business by prying open the front door. Once inside, the suspect pried open the door to the office but at this time, there appears to be no loss.
