SFPD Arrest Alamo Square Auto Burglary Suspects on New Burglary Charges 18-062

On the afternoon of April 25th, 2018 San Francisco police officers served three search warrants in connection with a series of auto burglaries. These search warrants, served in the Bayview and Ingleside Districts, stemmed from the investigation of auto burglaries on the 1800 block of Post Street on January 13th, the 300 block of Clement Street on April 10th and at Beach and Mason Streets on April 17th.  Victims of these burglaries reported the loss of items including wallets, cell phones and a laptop computer.

Samuel Minor, an 18 year-old male, San Francisco resident was arrested at approximately 5:30 PM during the service of a search warrant on the 300 block of Madison Street.  Minor, the getaway driver in the three above incidents was booked into San Francisco County Jail on three counts of burglary, three counts of possession of stolen property and three counts of conspiracy.

Adrian Landers, a 24 year-old male, San Francisco resident was taken into custody at 5:35 PM on the 700 block of Kirkwood Avenue.  He was booked into San Francisco County Jail on two counts of burglary, two counts of possession of stolen property, two counts of conspiracy, a parole violation and for committing a crime while out on bail.

Landers is on parole for a prior robbery offense and was one of the suspects arrested during the commission of an auto burglary at Alamo Square Park on February 1, 2018.  In that incident, the driver of the suspect vehicle placed his car in reverse and ran over both a plainclothes SFPD officer and one of the criminal co-conspirators of that crime.  The officer sustained serious injuries and remains off duty while recovering.  

These arrests were the result of collaboration between the Northern Station Street Crimes Unit, the Bayview Station Plainclothes Team, the Central Station Plainclothes Team and the Department’s Gang Task Force and is representative of the hard work being done by members of the San Francisco Police Department on a daily basis. In addition to taking two prolific burglars off the street, these officers recovered stolen property, seized evidence related to the initial crimes and impounded the vehicle, a silver Infinity SUV used to commit those crimes.
