Peninsula Police Blotter:Neighborhood crime log

A log of daily events from Peninsula police departments.

San Mateo

Hard to spot: Three juveniles wearing jeans, Timberland boots, lip piercings and carrying big handbags stole merchandise from a store at 200 Hillsdale Mall at 12:48 p.m. Dec. 11. The caller stated that one of the thieves had red streaks in her hair.

Clean your safe?: A caller reported that a person with his hair tied back and wearing a red scarf in his back pocket and sloppy in appearance was ringing doorbells and asking to clean houses at 3:30 p.m. Dec. 11 on the 2000 block of Sullivan Street.

San Carlos

Backbreaker: Police, fire and ambulance personnel responded to the 700 block of Laurel Street on a report of a pedestrian that had been struck by a car at 5:33 p.m. Dec. 6. The downtown street was closed down for approximately 40 minutes. The pedestrian, a 47-year-old San Carlos woman, was crossing the street when she was struck by a 1999 Volkswagen Cabriolet traveling southbound. The woman was transported to the hospital for complaint of back pain. The driver of the Volkswagen was not injured, and the car was not damaged. Police have determined that the pedestrian was most at fault by failing to yield to traffic while crossing the street outside of a crosswalk.

Belmont

Not surprising: A student reported at 5:01 p.m. Dec. 11 to the front counter of Carlmont High School on Alameda de las Pulgas that his iPhone had been taken from his back pocket while in class between 8:30 and 11:30 a.m.

Spicing things up: Three juveniles about 13 years old, wearing jeans and T-shirts, were throwing sauce from the Taco Bell on El Camino Real onto customer’s vehicles at 10:45 a.m. Dec. 8.

Nonviolent yeller: A caller reported her 45-year-old husband was yelling and hallucinating in the apartment building hallway. He was not violent and no weapons were seen. He went into apartment No. 4.
