The officers stopped the vehicle and determined that the operator’s license was expired and that he had an outstanding warrant for his arrest. The warrant was for a previous violation ofdriving without a license. In fact, at the time of this arrest, the suspect had three active DMV suspensions of his license. A search of the vehicle after the arrest yielded some marijuana, a glass crack pipe and an open, still cold beer can.

Writing is on the wall: Officers saw a subject standing against a wall under a no-trespassing sign on the 600 block of Geary Street at 1:01 a.m. Feb. 3.
