Target security called about two suspicious subjects, one with a record of prior theft from the store. Officer Dexter located the suspects near the Ross store. Investigation by Officer Contrada revealed that both were in possession of property stolen from the Safeway at the Hub. Video obtained from Safeway captured the theft.

Officers were dispatched to the Goodnight Inn. A male guest from the previous night refused to leave the lobby, even after all his property was brought down from his room by management. Officers Okulove and Hadden arrived and contacted the male as he was walking back to the hotel from McDonald's. The male was obviously on a stimulant and as officers attempted to arrest him, he began to fight. He was tased and arrested.

A residential burglary was interrupted at the 4300 block of Lenoso. Suspects were two black males in their 20's.

Officers were dispatched to a stolen vehicle at 4444 Hansen Avenue. It appears that the reporting party allowed her transient cousin to stay with her. However, when the cousin was told she would have to leave, the suspect repaid her generosity by stealing the reporting party's 2003 VW. According to the reporting party, the suspect and victim's vehicle are likely to be found in Oakland. No good deed goes unpunished.

Patrol units responded to a single vehicle accident at Paseo Padre Parkway and Warwick Road involving a stolen 2005 BMW. The two occupants immediately fled the accident scene. After searching the area, officers saw a suspicious vehicle leaving the park on Milton Street. Sgt Lopes stopped the vehicle and noticed that the passenger was sweating profusely, as if he had been recently running. The passenger confessed to being the driver of the stolen vehicle and was arrested.

What began as a standard petty theft case turned into much more... Officer Manrique responded to Marshalls to take custody of a 16 year-old male juvenile who had stolen a $16 pair of shorts. When Loss Prevention called his mother, she refused to pick him up, wanting him to face the consequences in the form of police intervention. When Officer Manrique spoke to the teenager, he was so fearful of going home to his mother that he begged to be taken to Juvenile Hall. The officer explained that Juvenile Hall didn't accept kids arrested for petty crimes. The minor then launched into a full confession of all of his other crimes, including stealing clothes from Big 5 just prior to the Marshall's arrest (confirmed), tagging the city with the monikers "SLIM" and "SM," a residential burglary, and the coup de grace, a recent attempted-robbery. In the robbery, the suspect and another male beat a male victim with a bag of spray cans while they tried to steal his phone. The juvenile got his wish, and is now at Juvenile Hall.

Dispatch received a call from two women who began hiking Mission Peak at 6 p.m., and were surprised when nightfall arrived. The callers had no flashlights and quickly got lost. Sergeants coordinated a search and Dispatch worked on getting good GPS coordinates with the phone signals. Our officers located the hikers after 30 minutes of intensive searching.

Units responded to a report of a prowler in the area of Egerton/Darwin. Units located a male subject and arrested him for loitering on private property. The male apparently had a girlfriend living in the area.
