Two auto burglaries occurred at the Starbucks at 5034 Mowry Avenue. The victims went into Starbucks after locking their vehicles, but came out to find their car had been burglarized. These cases are similar to a series occurring at that same location during the morning commute. Loss was an I-phone in one case that was left on the seat in plain view. A possible suspect vehicle was a black Lexus 400 with the last three digits on the plate being "813".
Major Crimes requested assistance at 36000 Mission Blvd. A detective from Union City saw parolee-at-large. The suspect has been wanted for months for the violation, and was on parole for manslaughter. The suspect fled back into the house when he saw police. Fortunately, the suspect surrendered a short time later. Union City PD handled the case.
A suspect walked up to a male and attempted to steal his backpack. The victim refused to give it up and was punched in the face. The suspect fled as officers arrived but was detained by Officer Franchi and positively identified. The suspect was taken to jail for strong-arm robbery.
Officer Snyder responded to Wal-Mart and detained two male subjects for burglary/theft. The suspects had a large empty box which they were filling with women's perfume, purses, mouthwash and other selective items. In their vehicle, several refund receipts were located from various stores.
Officer Greenberg was dispatched to Dale Hardware where employees were holding a male customer for writing multiple bad checks over the past few months. The suspect was arrested.
Officers were dispatched to an in-progress shoplifting case at Walmart on Albrae St. Upon arrival, Officer F. Smith contacted the suspect in front of the store. The suspect resisted causing injuries to Officer Smith. A foot pursuit ensued and Officer Smith and Officer B. Miller took the suspect into custody. The suspect also has three felony warrants for his arrest in Santa Clara County. Officer Smith was treated for his injuries at a local hospital and released.
A victim, who had gone to SBC Liquors to buy cigarettes, reported that she was robbed. As she walked home, a male (possibly Hispanic) who smelled of alcohol, asked her for a cigarette. When she said no, he pushed her against the wall and went through her pockets. He told her he would shoot her if she said anything. He took her cigarettes and left.
CSO Anders investigated a commercial burglary at Lizhou Restaurant (36456 Fremont Blvd.). The unknown suspect(s) removed a window pane from the front entry door to gain access into the building.

Officer Macciola responded to an accident at Fremont Boulevard/Grimmer Boulevard. When he arrived, he found the driver, a 51-year-old male, was intoxicated; he was arrested for driving under the influence. Officer Macciola found paperwork that showed the driver had also been arrested the previous day for driving under the influence.
A strong-arm robbery of a necklace and purse occurred at Fremont & Central. The suspect was described as a Hispanic male adult, 20's mustache & goatee, last seen getting into a beige 4 door Lexus, driven by a Black female adult. The car was last seen northbound from Centerville Junior High School.

The suspect broke into a home on Bridgewater Court but was held at bay by the elderly resident with a chair until police arrived. The second suspect fled eastbound, jumping fences. Traffic Units quickly isolated the area and the second suspect surrendered when Romily announced the presence of a K9 on Helston Court (one street east of where he was last seen).
