Bad seeds commit bad deeds in San Francisco weekend crimes

No good deed goes unpunished but here’s hoping these bad seeds get theirs.

4600 block of Mission Street
11:30 a.m. Saturday

A crook trying to cash a stolen check was arrested, cops said. A witness told police that he called the place of business regarding the check and was told the rightful owner was on vacation and the check was stolen. The crook was arrested.

Unit block of Santos Street
6:55 a.m. Saturday

A man who fell asleep in an abandoned house was robbed, police said. The victim claimed he felt someone going through his pockets while he was half asleep. When he woke in the morning he was missing several items.

1000 block of Divisadero Street
6:15 p.m. Saturday

Cops responded to the scene of a fight where gunshots rang out, they said. The arriving officer learned one of the “combatants fired a shot into another brawler’s car,” he said. No victims were present when he arrived.

Duboce Park
1:40 a.m. Saturday

A couple spray-painting punks were busted defacing the Sunset Tunnel by a Muni security guard, cops said. The security guard detained the two vandals until police arrived. One of the “artistes” — a 21-year-old man from Richmond — was cited for malicious mischief.
