Peninsula Police Blotter: Neighborhood crime log

A log of daily events from Peninsula police departments.

San Mateo

Redwood City

Getaway scooter: Security guards at the Target department store, 2485 El Camino Real, phoned police that a known shoplifter had just been taped stealing a stereo and then using a knife to cut the camera cable in the men’s restroom, presumably to conceal the loot being hidden on his person.

Her lip and eye were swollen from punches; her purse had been emptied on the floor and $300 was stolen. But her worker’s comp check and personal checkbook were still intact.
