DUI discovery: Foot patrol officers responded to the 1800 block of Haight Street on the report of a man causing an evening disturbance at 9:57 p.m. Sept. 4.

Follow that burglar: Just before 6 a.m. Aug. 30 on the 1000 block of Bush Street, officers raced to a call of an auto burglary in progress. A witness pointed to the burglar’s escape route. An area search was coordinated and the burglar was nabbed at O’Farrell and Jones streets, still carrying a large duffle bag with the stolen property inside.

Richmond

Street crack: Plainclothes officers in the area of Second Avenue and California Street observed a man sitting in a car and smoking from a crack pipe at 3:08 p.m. Sept. 9. Upon closer approach, they could also see crack cocaine sitting on the center console.

The smoker admitted he had just purchased his drugs from a woman who lived around the corner and he knew that the occupant was on felony probation for numerous narcotic-related arrests.

Just then, the female occupant exited her home and was stopped and found to have the brown bag carrying a large amount of cocaine.
