The Daly City community has been rocked by a string of burglaries, an attempted robbery, plus other crimes, according to the most recent crime alert bulletin released by the Daly City Police Department. The incidents, which occurred during the week of March 18-24, are under active investigation as local authorities continue to quickly respond to and investigate each case.

On March 23, police swiftly nabbed two suspects following an attempted robbery near Mission Street and John Daly Boulevard. A quick-thinking officer noticed a suspect wearing a red jacket who was instructed to "get out from underneath the vehicle" where a replica handgun and other suspicious items were later found. Two individuals were arrested, one being an 18-year-old San Francisco resident, who was booked for attempted robbery among other charges, while a 15-year-old Oakland resident was also taken into custody, according to the crime alert bulletin.

Although no residential burglaries were reported during the period, commercial burglaries surged with six cases, including a break-in at a Sherwin Williams store and a theft at Target. Suspects forcibly entered and stole goods, exemplified by the Sherwin Williams incident on March 21, where a suspect forced the front door open and made away with items valued at around $600. Target fell victim to a burglary, as well, with Stanley cups worth approximately $440 taken. Furthermore, several apartment complexes on 87th Street had their mailboxes vandalized, with the suspect's intent remaining unclear.

The week also saw a spate of stolen vehicle incidents, with five reported and four subsequently recovered in rapid succession by various police departments. The only vehicle burglary of the week involved the theft of a title and registration from a 2000 GMC 6500 on Byrne Street. Overall, the Daly City Police Department documented 157 cases, which spanned domestic disturbances, psychiatric holds, vandalism, and narcotics-related crimes. This was alongside two hit-and-run collisions, reminding the public of the pervasive yet oft-ignored malevolence that skulks within shadows of society's daily hustle, as reported in the crime alert bulletin.
