Japantown Taser-Gun Cell Phone Mugging Foiled by GPS – Suspect Caught in Twitterloin at 7th and Market

Friday, September 30th, 2011

The SFPD has just fleshed out this story of a trip to Japantown gone wrong.

Turns out the guy trying to fence(?) the booty is less than 18 years old.

Anyway, all the deets:

“SFPD Arrest Suspect by way of Smartphone GPS Technology
11-106

Posted Date: 9/30/2011

San Francisco Police Officers at Northern Station arrested a suspect in connection with a robbery by way of GPS technology.

The suspect who cannot be identified due to the fact he is a juvenile, was taken into custody on September 29, 2011 and charged for possession of stolen property.

In this incident, the victim was walking home from work on the 1600 block of Post St. at 11:00 p.m. when she was suddenly shocked in the neck by a stun gun. The suspect then stole her belongings, which included a Smartphone. Shortly after, a group of good Samaritans came to the victim’s aid and she was able to call the police.

Responding officers arrived on scene and asked the victim if she subscribed to a GPS tracking device on her Smartphone. The victim stated, “Yes”.

A tracking device is a service that allows subscribers to track their Smartphone when their device is either stolen or lost. Using GPS technology, the officers were able to track the Victim’s stolen Smartphone to the area of 7th St and Market.

Officers responded to the area and were able to track down the Smartphone through its tracking device software.

The officers were able to detain the suspect who had the Smartphone in his possession. The suspect was placed under arrest for possession of stolen property.”

Well, I guess this is a happy ending…

The Youngest Raptor in the Panhandle Yearns for Craig Newmark’s Backyard

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

This hungry juvenile hawk (red-tailed? red-shouldered? red-something anyway) perched on a Eucalyptus tree in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle has stopped screeching for its parents’ food and started hunting on its own.

If only it knew about Craig Newmark‘s nearby backyard, a veritable smorgasbord of delicious boids (a smorgasbird, if you will) that’s just up the hill. Here’s a recent menu du jour.

Happy hunting, little raptor.
