Union City Police Log
On Monday (3/12), officers were sent to the FoodMaxx grocery store located at 30073 Industrial Parkway to investigate an in progress forgery. Store cashiers were already on the lookout for a suspect who had passed two fraudulent American Express cashier checks the two previous days, so when the suspect attempted to pass a third fraudulent check they immediately called the police. The suspect appeared to notice it was taking a while to process his order, so he fled the area on foot, but was detained by responding officers. The suspect was identified by the cashier and arrested for forgery.
* Later this night, officers responded to a residence on the 33000 block of 11th Street to investigate a woman screaming inside a residence. A relative to a couple inside the residence advised the "911" dispatcher that the couple inside were hallucinating from ingesting drugs. One of the subjects is known to police to be on parole and to behave violently. Arriving officers surrounded the residence and ordered everyone out. During this time, a neighbor approached officers and advised that the female subject had exited the residence prior to police arrival, and was at her residence with a stab wound to her neck. The suspect then bolted from the residence and attempted to flee from officers on foot. Officers and a police K-9 gave chase and apprehended the suspect. Through the course of the officer's investigation, he learned that the female subject had a bloody mouth, but was not stabbed as reported by the neighbor. The female subject denied any domestic abuse and was uncooperative. The suspect was arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance, resisting arrest, and a parole hold.
* Additionally, officers responded to Wal*Mart to investigate an employee embezzlement case. Through the course of the investigation, the officer arrested the employee for embezzling $3,000.00. A search of the subject also revealed he had drug paraphernalia and methamphetamine on his person for which he was additionally charged.
* Later this night, officers responded to the 34000 block of Tory Pines to investigate an in progress vehicle burglary by two subjects. Officers detained an intoxicated subject nearby matching the description. It was later determined that the subject had taken some loose change from within an unlocked vehicle. The victim declined prosecution. The lone suspect was located and arrested for public intoxication.
