Officers Foxworth and Espinoza were dispatched to a report of a robbery. The victim informed the officers that he was robbed of his cell phone and a large sum of cash by two suspects, both of whom were armed with handguns. Fortunately, the victim was uninjured during the robbery. The victim was able to track his cell phone’s movement, all the way to its current location, in the Tenderloin District. Officers Scafani and Hayes were working in the Tenderloin area where the stolen cell phone was tracking to, and they had heard the radio broadcasts regarding the earlier robbery, when they observed a vehicle pull over mid-block, and a subject matching the description of one of the robbery suspects exit the vehicle. This subject walked over to another individual showed him an object, and they appeared to engage in some form of transaction over the item. Officer Espinoza broadcasted that the stolen cell phone was tracking to the location where the transaction was occurring, both subjects were detained, and the officers determined that the subject from the vehicle was in the process of selling the stolen cell phone to the other individual. Meanwhile, Officers Morgan, O’Keefe, and Custodio located the involved vehicle, conducted a stop, and detained the three occupants in the vehicle. The officers determined that the driver of the vehicle matched the description of the second suspect in the initial robbery. A search of the vehicle resulted in the recovery of two firearms, one of which was an unregistered and illegal “ghost gun,” and multiple cell phones and phone accessories. The subjects were also found to be in possession of a large sum of cash, as well as ski masks and other face coverings commonly used in the commission of robberies. As a result of the officers’ thorough investigation, the subject in possession of the stolen phone, as well as the three additional subjects in the vehicle, were arrested and booked on multiple charges, including robbery, possession of stolen property, weapons violations, and conspiracy.
