Officers were dispatched to a called-in bomb threat at 41400 Boyce Road. Employees were evacuated before the PD arrived and a search of the exterior and interior of the building was conducted. No device was located. Sergeant Quimson supervised the incident.
California Highway Patrol requested assistance after an Hispanic Male Adult tried to escape on foot from a vehicle crash. The passenger was apprehended, but the driver, later identified as a 31 year-old male, escaped. He is last seen hopping fences near Briarwood and Stonewood. Officer Baca set-up a perimeter and Sergeant Gott supervised the incident. A K9 search of the residences met with negative results. The suspect is also wanted for a parole violation.
A residential burglary occurred in the area of Sanderling Drive. The reporting party called to report a suspicion person that rang the doorbell and when they did not answer the door, saw the subject make a phone call. The subject saw the R/P and told him he was at the wrong house. While officers were checking the area, a victim of a burglary called to report their home was burglarized 30 minutes prior. In that burglary, the victim's 12 year-old son answered the door and the suspect told him he was at the wrong house. The suspect left and returned with a second suspect. The 12 year-old answered the door a second time and this time the suspects forced their way in and stole electronics and a small safe after ransacking the residence. The 12 year-old was unharmed and he called his parents before calling the police. The suspects are described as: #1 Black male 20's, red t-shirt and black saggy jeans. #2 Black male, 20's, bark blue shirt and black baggy jeans. These appear to be the same suspects in the suspicious person call. An area check failed to locate the suspects. The case is being investigated by Officers Newton and Nevin.
Officer Manrique located an occupied stolen vehicle out of Union City in the area of the Irvington Jack in the Box. The two occupants are arrested without incident.
CHP drives up on a single vehicle vs center median collision at Alvarado/Fremont. The driver fled and hid in the bushes and the female passenger was transported as a precaution. Sergeant Crandall finds the driver as he emerged from the shrubs. He is arrested for DUI and hit and run.
A transient from Texas arrived in our city last night. While walking on Mission Blvd this morning, he discovered a dead skunk on the side of the road and felt the need to give this creature a proper burial, and so creates his own funeral pyre by gathering pine needles under the skunk and lighting it ablaze. This attracts some attention from the commuters who call FFD. The deceased skunk is ultimately extinguished, and the transient taken in for a psychiatric evaluation.
Residential burglaries occurred at 600 block of Praderia (front door POE 'point of entry') and 45600 block of Parkmeadow (back door pry POE).
Officers were dispatched to an in-progress residential burglary at 4945 Central Avenue (Regency Square Apartments). The victim was awakened by two suspects entering a bathroom window. When he confronted them, they fled the apartment with Christmas gifts. One suspect was an Asian male and the other was a Hispanic male, both 16-20 years old. Case investigated by Officer Newton and Officer Nevin.
