S.F. Police Blotter

These are excerpts from the San Francisco Police Department's daily log of activities. Incidents are listed by police precincts and the neighborhoods they patrol.

Central

Financial District, Nob Hill, Chinatown, North Beach, Russian Hill, Telegraph Hill

Home with loot: A man burglarized a parked vehicle on Bush and Hyde streets and fled with a large amount of property at 2:05 p.m. Oct. 5. A witness followed and saw the suspect enter a hotel on California Street.

Officers arrived at the hotel and arrested the suspect within minutes. He was found to be on active parole for burglar and the stolen property was recovered in the hotel room.

Bike knifer: Officers responded to a call of a man with a knife on the 1100 block of Pine Street at 5:04 p.m. Oct. 3. A witness reported that the same individual had just stolen items by cutting open the locked saddlebag of a parked motorcycle.

The officers arrested the suspect nearby and recovered the stolen property. He also had two outstanding warrants for his arrest.

Mission

Mission district, Noe Valley

Shoplifting assault: Three women, including one with a baby, attempted to shoplift numerous items from the National Stores outlet on 2664 Mission St. at 7:04 p.m. Oct. 6. When confronted, they assaulted employees and fled.

Police quickly responded to the call and took employees to search the area. The three women were found and arrested.

Richmond

Richmond, most of Golden Gate Park

Erratic on narcotic: Officers responded to 32nd Avenue and California Street on a report of a black sport utility vehicle being driven erratically on the wrong side of the street at 10:31 p.m. Oct. 10. Officers located the SUV, made a traffic stop and advised the driver about the report.

When the driver stepped out of the car to talk with the officers, he did not set the parking brake. As the car started to roll away, an officer reached into the open door to set the brake and saw pills — apparently Ecstasy — lying on the driver’s seat. A subsequent search of the SUV uncovered suspected heroin, crack cocaine, hallucinogenic mushrooms and more pills.

The suspect was charged with multiple narcotic violations.
