Burglary -- 7:30am, 600 Blk Duncan St. Officers Wong and Pai were dispatched to a report of a well-being check regarding an open garage door. When the officers arrived, they found the garage door of the residence wide open, and an audible burglar alarm was activated. The officers located pry marks on the door frame and damage to the dead bolt. The officers contacted a neighbor to get the contact number for the owner of the residence. The officers contacted the victim, who was out of town. The victim was able to confirm that two bicycles were stolen from the garage.
Burglary -- 5:30pm, 600 Blk 28th St. Sgt. Miller responded to a burglary. The victim advised that he locked and secured his bicycles in the garage area with a cable and padlock. He was advised in the morning by some workers that his garage door was open. The victim noticed the bicycles missing. He located some rebar on the floor which Sgt. Miller believed was used to pry open the door. He took pictures of the scene and booked them into evidence. He did not believe contacting SFPD Crime Scene Investigations Unit was warranted. He provided the victim with follow up information.
Burglary -- 11:00pm, 600 Blk Duncan. Officer Goldsborough was dispatched to a burglary. The victim advised that he left his new bicycle in the garage of his home in the original shipping box. He woke up in the morning and noticed the box and bicycle were missing. A male knocked at his front door and had the empty box with him and asked the victim not to leave his garbage on the street. The victim advised he had been the victim of a burglary. He was unable to provide any further information and was provided with follow up information. SFPD’s Crime Scene Investigation Unit was not contacted due to the lack of physical evidence.
