A residential burglary occurred at the 37400 block of Summer Holly. Entry was gained via an unlocked rear window. Loss reported included laptops, TV and watches. There are no known suspects. The victim left the home for just a few hours.
Officers responded to Check N Go, 39481 Fremont Blvd., on a report of an armed-robbery that just occurred. The victim clerk reported a black male adult, average build, wearing a tan hoodie, followed her into the business as she unlocked the front door. Once inside the business, the suspect threatened the clerk with a silver handgun and demanded cash from the safe. After waiting ten minutes for the clerk to open the safe, the suspect removed cash and fled on foot. A short time later, Hayward PD advised they located an abandoned vehicle in their city with paperwork from Check N Go and a hand gun.
Officer Richards responded to Bank of America, 39300 Fremont Blvd., after bank employees reported a male was trying to cash a stolen check. The subject was contacted in the bank and stated he received the check from a male for payment on a motorcycle he was selling and wanted to make sure the check cleared before he gave away the motorcycle. Officer Richards was able to confirm the subject's statement and developed a plan to have the suspect meet the victim at his home to pick up the motorcycle. The suspect was subsequently arrested on a variety of charges.
A residence on Parkmeadow Drive was tented for termite extermination. An unknown suspect cut the tent and burglarized the house.
A resident on Parkside Drive called to report a burglary in progress, stating a black male adult was attempting to get inside her house.

Officers responded to Encyclopedia Circle on a report of a suspicious circumstance. The reporting party stated there was a group of individuals stealing aluminum from the rear of the business. Prior to making contact with the group, a perimeter was established. Once the perimeter was established, contact was made, and two out of the four male subjects complied with officer's orders. The remaining two subjects fled, and a request for a K9 unit was made. K9 Eddy from Milpitas PD arrived and located one of the subjects hiding in the yard.
Officers responded to the area of 2400 block of Parkside Drive after a homeowner reported an unknown adult male was in his backyard. When the homeowner confronted the male, he stated he was looking for a basketball and jumped the fence. Officer Luevano located the subject (a 17-year-old juvenile) running near the corner of Mowry/Parkside and was able to detain him. During a search of the juvenile, loss from a residential burglary that occurred on July 24 was located in his pockets. The juvenile, who is from San Lorenzo, was arrested for possession of stolen property and loitering on private property. During the initial investigation, there was some indication a second suspect was involved and a yard-to-yard search was conducted (East Bay Regional provided air support); however, it was later determined it was just the one suspect.
