Peninsula Police Blotter

A log of daily events from Peninsula police departments.

Daly City

“730” vengeance: A truck owner reported that the front passenger window and windshield of his white 1990 Ford Super Duty were smashed sometime overnight Oct. 22 on the 2700 block of Junipero Serra Boulevard.

The victim said he believed it was retaliation because he recently covered up gang-related graffiti on his vehicle. He requested passing checks on yard shifts because multiple commercial vehicles were spray-painted with the same symbol, “730.”
