At 10:50 a.m., a resident was at home sleeping on Princess Court, when he heard the sound of glass breaking. The resident walked into his living room and could hear the sound of someone attempting to force open the interior garage door. The resident yelled for the person to stop. After a few seconds he checked his home and found the suspect had already fled the area. The resident waited over two hours to report the incident to the police. Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Investigations Unit.
Officers responded at 1:51 p.m. to a robbery at the Metro PCS store on Alvarado Boulevard. A suspect jumped over the counter and removed currency from the register. After the incident the suspect was seen fleeing on foot towards S&K Donuts. The suspect was described as a black male, about 30 years old, wearing a bandana over his face.
A resident on Petunia Court woke up at 8:45 a.m. and found a suspect standing in the upstairs hallway of their home. The victim confronted the suspect, later identified as Roderick Tracy. The victim asked the suspect why he was in their home. The suspect told the victim that he noticed an open back window on victim's residence. The suspect said he was worried about the victim's elderly parents so he climbed through the window and checked the interior of the residence. The victim recognized the suspect as his neighbor and he escorted Mr. Tracy out of the residence. The victim noticed that his house had been ransacked and some of his items were now missing. The victim later called the police department to document the incident. Corporal Clubb arrived and contacted Mr. Tracy. Mr. Tracy admitted that he had entered the victim's residence during the investigation. Mr. Tracy was placed under arrest and a search warrant was obtained by the Investigations Unit. Some of the victim's stolen property was located during a search of the suspect's residence.
At 9:59 a.m., Union City employees noticed a male crouched down and hiding between two city vehicles. The male was hiding in the gated Police Department parking lot. Officers contacted suspect Darryl Emerson, a transient from Union City. The suspect has been arrested for entering and tampering with police vehicles in the past. Luckily the suspect was located and arrested prior to him gaining access to any patrol vehicles.
At 9:20 a.m., officers were dispatched to investigate an interrupted residential burglary. Witnesses described the suspects as being three males and one female. A perimeter was established around San Carlos Way, and a yard-to-yard search was conducted. The female suspect took refuge in a residence by telling the homeowners that a "man" was chasing her. The homeowner saw the police in front of his residence and told them a female was inside. The suspect pleaded with the homeowner not to let the police in. She was detained while Paramedics Plus responded to render aid as she claimed to be pregnant and to have a broken leg as a result of falling off a fence. At the hospital, a stolen ID and stolen credits cards were found concealed in the suspect's underwear. The stolen property was linked back to an automobile burglary that occurred in San Leandro. The female arrestee was identified as Josephine Savedra of San Jose.
