Quick responding officers detained the suspect on the 500 block of Cypress Avenue. He threatened physical harm to the officers and was found to have the stolen money on his person. He was taken into custody and arrested for robbery, obstructing and threatening a peace officer, and a parole violation. He was later booked into San Mateo County Jail without further incidents.

On April 23, 2022, There was a structure fire that the SSF Police and Fire Department responded to at the 700 block of El Camino Real. Unfortunately, when they arrived they discovered the rear area of the Root Chinese restaurant on fire. The officers ensured the restaurant was clear and worked to evacuate a motel nearby while closing the area surrounding the fire. Luckily, no one was injured and the firefighters were able to extinguish the fire, while keeping it contained to the restaurant only.
Only April 25, 2022, SSF Officers received a report of a suspicious vehicle loitering at Point View Place. When the officers arrived, they made contact with two adult males and a 17 year old male. Marijuana was observed in obvious view and one of the males had a bladed weapon on his lap. The party consented to a search which produced a “loaded, privately manufactured firearm (a Ghost Gun) with an extended magazine concealed in the 17 year old male’s pants.” He was also in possession of a window-punch. Another window-punch was located in the car’s glove box where one of the males had been seated.
All of the three subjects were arrested on various charges. The 17 year old was transported to the Hillcrest Juvenile Detention Center and booked there. The two adult males were booked into the San Mateo County Jail.
