What’s the problem, officer? Officers were on patrol when they noticed a car with no license plates stopped in a bus zone at Jones Street and Cosmo Place at 11:17 p.m. Jan. 31. 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. The officers detained the subject and determined that he had an outstanding warrant. A search subsequent to the arrest yielded a glass crack cocaine pipe in the suspect’s pants pocket.
