Sunglass loot: An employee of a retailer on the 3500 block of Sacramento Street called at 2:30 p.m. Sept. 17 about suspicious men apparently casing the store in preparation for a robbery or theft. The caller provided a vehicle description and direction of travel. Plainclothesmen spotted the car as it drove in circles around the neighborhood. The suspects were eventually stopped and in the car were several pairs of expensive sunglasses, still wrapped in packages.

Pursuer scared off: A club employee left his car running on the 1000 block of Kearny Street at 5 a.m. Sept. 15 while he went inside to get other employees he planned to drive home. A young male jumped behind the wheel and began to drive off.

The victim leaned into the window to stop the driver, who responded by driving off at high speed. As they drove, a van with other suspects pursued them. One suspect drew a handgun from the van’s window and fired shots at the victim, who was still hanging on the driver’s side door and window. The suspect stopped at Front and Broadway streets and the victim ran from the vehicle.

All cracked up: A chronic trespasser, known to officers as having a stay-away order for multiple arrests near the 800 block of Stockton Street, was observed there at 7:24 a.m. Sept. 12. He was arrested for violating a court order and found to be in possession of suspected crack cocaine and a pipe.

Felony fugitive: Officers stopped a vehicle for an equipment violation on the first block of Nebraska Street at 1:30 a.m. Sept. 12. The driver, who lives in Glen Park and was driving with a suspended license, was also wanted on a felony drug warrant in Los Angeles.

Four towed: Officers pulled over four cars for running red lights or stop signs during the morning of Sept. 12. In each case, the drivers were unlicensed and uninsured. All four were cited and their vehicles were towed.
