In Daly City, the long arm of the law is keeping track of the city's miscreants, tallying a week's worth of robberies, burglaries, and thefts. According to a crime alert bulletin released by the Daly City Police Department, a pricey $850 backpack was swiped after a spat on Mission Street, marking the sole robbery reported between November 27 and December 3. The incident, which took place on Monday at around 4:05 p.m. on the 6900 block, remains under investigation.
Villains made off with a loot of tools worth about $1,100 in the only commercial burglary recorded last week. Wrenching a storage room door open on Geneva Avenue sometime between Monday evening and Tuesday morning, the thief's handiwork underscores the continuing saga of property crime. As for residences, homeowners can breathe a sigh of relief; the bulletin noted no break-ins during the period.
Automobiles weren't spared, though, with three vehicle burglaries etching their mark on the crime map. Perpetrators plundered a range of items, from the unknown contents of a glove box in a Volkswagen to a backpack from a Kia Soul, with the latter also a target for attempted vehicle theft. Additionally, a haul of luggage, clothes, and a purse were stripped from a Toyota Highlander, according to details outlined in online crime reports.
Motor vehicle theft was in higher gear, as five were stolen, and two attempts were made but botched. Fortune favored some owners; four pilfered cars were later found by various police departments. However, as the wheels of justice turn, not every story has a happy ending; a 2020 Infiniti Q50, stolen from Cypress Lane, is still missing in action. Breaking the serenity of suburban life, the police registered 122 cases, ranging from domestic disturbances to narcotics-related offenses, painting a vivid picture of the week's public safety canvas.
The uptick in theft and burglary adds a sense of urgency for the community and law enforcement alike to remain vigilant. Daly City residents are encouraged to stay informed and take proper precautions to safeguard their possessions.
