South San Francisco, CA December 10, 2015
It APPEARS SSFPD may have caught suspect(s) today wanted in the multiple residential burglaries in the Buri neighborhood. Both Buri Buri AND Alta Loma Schools were put on lock down while PD came en masse to the area to investigate since the timing coordinate with the normal time for student release from schools WE DO NOT YET HAVE CONFIRMATION FROM PD – But the SSF School District did put out the following notice:
This afternoon, December 10th, at approximately 2:45pm, the South San Francisco Police Department informed us of a non-school related robbery crime in the community near the general area of Alta Loma Middle School. Although the school was unaffected by the incident, both Alta Loma Middle School and Buri Buri Elementary School were placed under secure campus status as a precaution. No students or staff members were harmed or in any danger, and the criminal activity reported by the police occurred away from our campuses.
Both schools were promptly returned to normal operating status and police have verified that the areas in and around the schools are safe. South San Francisco Police are continuing to investigate the matter. Should you have any questions about this issue, you may contact the police department at 650-877-8900.
Regarding the robbery suspect(s) we have heard it was a home on Serra Drive today that was robbed and a neighbor called PD. We have other info yet NOTHING HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY PD so we will wait for them to put out an official report & share that asap.
Let’s hope this puts an end to the recent rash of residential burglaries – yet ALWAYS be aware of your block, continue talking to neighbors and keep your area safe by doing so.
Thank you to everyone who emailed, messaged, called, and posted on our page wanting to inform neighbors of this situation.
