Cookie bust: Officers came upon a dog tied to a suitcase at Sharon Meadow in Golden Gate Park at 2:44 p.m. on Aug. 29 and asked a group to whom the dog belonged. A man came forward and the officers obtained identification, finding that he was prohibited from being in the area.
They arrested him for the violation and gathered up his belongings, one of which was a basket filled with approximately 30 strange-looking, messily wrapped cookies that appeared to have marijuana baked into them. Attached to the basket was a sign that read “ganja cookies.” He told the officers, “I just sell them to people with serious medical needs.” But that did not keep him out of jail.
Glen Park, Bernal Heights, Excelsior, St. Francis Wood
Ain’t love grand?: A woman was in her residence on the 1-100 block of Blythdale at 9 a.m. Tuesday when her boyfriend grabbed her around the throat, strangled her, pulled her around the house, threw her on the ground and struck her between 10 and 15 times.
Next, he pulled out a shotgun and threatened to kill her. Understandably, she fled out onto the 1400 block of Sunnydale. But the boyfriend caught up and destroyed her cell phone before running off with the shotgun inside a large backpack. Five officers took part in locating the boyfriend and arresting him on numerous charges.
Rollover: A 1994 Ford rolled over due to excessive speed on Shelley near Cambridge at 12:46 a.m. Tuesday. The LaGrande Street driver was unlicensed and cited, and his car was towed.
Mission district, Noe Valley

Officers covered her and transported her to S.F. General Hospital for psychiatric evaluation.
