On December 1st the Town of Colma Police Department started the holiday season off with 4 theft reports from various businesses thought the Town. The first three reports were misdemeanor petty theft cases, where two people were unidentified and one person was identified through diligent investigative work by the responding officer. This case was forwarded to the district attorney’s office for the issuance of a warrant. The fourth case was a felony grand theft and drug possession case. The suspect was arrested for stealing over $1,000 worth of merchandise from one of our retail businesses. He was also booked into jail on drug related offenses and outstanding warrants for his arrest.

December 2nd was just as busy as the first, but this day started off with an individual in mental health crisis. Due to the responding officers patience and crisis intervention training they were able to successfully place the individual onto a 5150 mental health evaluation hold without using any force. For the rest of December 2nd officers took three different vehicle theft cases. The first case involved a subject using a victim’s identity to purchase two different vehicles from two different dealerships. This subject was identified, and the case was sent to the district attorney’s office for the issuance of an arrest warrant.
