September 29th 2009
Friday 9/11/09 8:35AM 1546 Market St.: Officer Woo was standing on Market St at Franklin dealing with transient related call when he observed the suspect being chased by an woman. The woman saw Officer Woo and yelled "help, help she just stole ice cream from my store." Officer Woo detained the suspect and recovered the stolen ice cream. The victim stated the suspect entered her store and opened a bag of chips and started eating them. The victim told her to stop it. The suspect refused, took off her shoe and hit the victim over the head. The suspect then went into the freezer, stole the ice cream and ran. The suspect was booked at County Jail 9.

Saturday 9/12/09 12:09 AM 1155 Market St.: Officer Forneris and Officer Madrid were on patrol when they were dispatched to a call of a person who was assaulted with a cane. Officer Cronin and Officer O'Keeffe arrived on scene and detained the suspect. The Officers spoke to the victim who stated the suspect beat her multiple times on her head and back with his cane. The victim stated the suspect just kept yelling that his girlfriend told him to beat her up. The suspect was booked at County Jail 9.

Sunday 9/13/09 11:29 PM 563 Natoma St.: Officer Gunter and Officer Tack were responding to a call of a burglary. Upon their arrival, Officer Forneris and Officer Madrid had the suspect detained with the assistance of Sgt. Frazer and Officer Glynn. The suspect had taken off the security gate and was crouched down by the front door of the residence. When the suspect saw the Officers he tried to pull his hood over his head to hide. But that didn't work!! When Officer Cronin and Officer Tack made contact with the residents they stated that they were sleeping when they heard a loud bang. The suspect was trying to kick open the door. Both victims were terrified for their life. The suspect had numerous prior arrests for violence and theft. The suspect was booked at County Jail 9.

Tuesday 9/15/09 11:05 PM 479 Natoma St.: Officer Pedroza, Officer Frost, Sgt. Christ and Sgt. Bragagnolo were working plain clothes in the area. The Officers and Sergeants were walking east on Natoma St. when they observed a hand to hand narcotics transaction. When the two suspects saw the Officers they both tried to throw their rocks of cocaine they had. One of the suspects even tried to throw the cocaine down a storm drain. HOWEVER, Sgt. Bragagnolo was smarter then the suspect!! Sgt. Bragagnolo got a rake handle, put a piece of chewing gum on the tip of the handle and was able to recover the one piece of rock cocaine that fell down the gutter! GOOD McGyver work Sgt. Bragagnolo! All in all the Officers/Sergeants recovered nine pieces of rock cocaine. Both of the suspects were booked at County Jail 9.

    Would this "girlfriend" happen to be nothing more than a voice in the guy's head?

    Oh yeah, I think I read that particular urban fantasy novel. The guy's mom gets his hoodie of invisibility mixed in with the rest of his hoodies when she does the laundry.

  4. That's what you get when you outsource the care of the mentally ill to the correctional system.

    Is it possible to go fishing in a storm drain on Natoma without recovering crack?

    Also, sounds like County Jail 9 is the place to be.

  7. I guess playing all those Sierra adventure games paid off for Sgt. Bragagnolo. I wonder how many inventory items he tried sticking together, before he solved it.
