S.F. Police Blotter: Neighborhood crime log

These are excerpts from the San Francisco Police Department's daily log of activities. Incidents are listed by police precincts and the neighborhoods they patrol.

Park

Cole Valley, Haight, Castro, Twin Peaks, Panhandle

Habitual shoplifter: An alleged shoplifter was being held at a store on the 2600 block of Geary Street at 9:30 p.m. Nov. 16. When a police officer arrived, a record check of the subject revealed that the alleged shoplifter had been convicted of theft and served jail time, changing his current crime into a felony theft with a prior conviction. The subject was taken to the station, where a warrant check showed two outstanding warrants for his arrest, both for the same crime he had just allegedly committed.

Park pot bust: Plainclothesmen working in the upper Haight, Golden Gate Park and Buena Vista Park areas from 2 to 6 p.m. Nov. 17 made nine felony arrests. They seized additional contraband, including two garbage bags containing more than 13 pounds of high-grade marijuana. The bags were “secreted” in the suspects’ “home” within Buena Vista Park.

Ingleside

Glen Park, Bernal Heights, Excelsior, St. Francis Wood

Stalking report: A Diamond Heights woman reported at 2:20 p.m. Nov. 24 that she had been stalked by her ex-husband. Officers determined that the suspect resided in Daly City and that he was wanted for felony car theft. The Daly City Police Department located the man and arrested him.

Almost knifed: A Visitacion Valley man reported at 7:15 p.m. Nov. 24 that he had been robbed at knifepoint on the 200 block of Parque Drive.

The suspect, who lives on the 1100 block of Laguna Street, was arrested.
