Officers were dispatched to an in-progress residential burglary in the 100 block of Quinault Way. The victim was inside her home when the suspects rang the doorbell. After she decided not to answer the door, three suspects entered the backyard and forced entry into the house. The victim fled without the suspects' knowledge. Officer Dias arrived and witnessed several suspects hopping fences to the rear of the home. He captured one suspect on Pontiac Way and a perimeter was set quickly. Baca's K-9 arrived and quickly located a second suspect in a rear yard on Pontiac Way. The suspect refused to surrender and was bitten by the K-9. Lambert's K-9 joined the search and bit a third suspect inside the perimeter on Quinault; three adult males were arrested.
A male called Hayward PD to say that he was going to commit suicide by jumping into the ponds at Sequoia/Paseo Padre. The call was transferred to Fremont PD and a search was initiated in the area. Sgt. Crandall coordinated a multi-jurisdictional search (Fremont PD/Fremont Fire/Hayward PD/East Bay Regional Parks) utilizing the new FLIR (Forward Looking Infra-Red) vcunit and K-9s. Cell records indicated the call had originated in the area of the search. The search terminated after two hours and it was determined that a friend of the phone owner had taken the phone and called because he was depressed. An investigation is continuing.
