sfpd_arrestcuffs.jpg5:45 PM: Two burglary suspects were arrested after a foot pursuit and an hour-long search in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights neighborhood this afternoon, a police spokesman said.

U.S. Park Police alerted San Francisco police that two men suspected of burglarizing cars in the Presidio had fled to San Francisco city streets at about 2 p.m., San Francisco police Officer Carlos Manfredi said.

Officers located the car in the 2500 block of Filbert Street, but when they approached it, the suspects got out and ran away, Manfredi said.

The men went through the yards of nearby homes, jumping fences as they attempted to get away from the officers, Manfredi said.

Officers set up a perimeter when the pursuit reached the 2100 block of Scott Street, about nine blocks away from where the men had jumped out of the car, Manfredi said. The suspects were apprehended at about 3 p.m.

No injuries were reported. Traffic was not affected by the pursuit, he said.

    I suppose it’s only racism when other people say it, right?

    It’s amazing how effective and efficient law enforcement can be when citizens cooperate with the police, as opposed to grandstanding them, calling them names, spitting on them or refusing to bear witness to crimes.

    That may be how your neighborhood responds to them, but mine is woefully underserved, and SFPD’s answer to our query is that they’re understaffed.
    Speaking for my area, having foot patrols would be a superior deterrent to an infrequent drive by in a patrol car.
    Oh, and I don’t know where you’ve spent the past few decades, but that name was coined a long time ago.
