Weekly Totals: 570 Calls, 27 Arrests

LA MESA -- Crime prevention can involve subtle little steps that make your home less attractive than others to the burglars looking for easy touches. See Crime Prevention Below.
 Case Highlights: On Friday, October 10th, 2014 at approximately 9:10 PM, the Motel 6 located at 7621 Alvarado Road, was robbed by a suspect armed with a handgun. The unknown suspect entered the front-desk lobby area and approached the clerk at the counter. The suspect displayed a black semi-auto handgun and demanded cash. After the clerk complied, the suspect fled on foot and was last seen running eastbound on Alvarado Road from the hotel. Officers searched the area with assistance from the San Diego Sheriff Department’s helicopter but were unable to locate the suspect.
The suspect is described as a black male adult in his 20s, approximately 6’00” tall with a thin build. The suspect was wearing all black clothing to include a black long sleeved shirt, black pants, black shoes, a black baseball cap, black gloves, and a black mask covering his nose and mouth. The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the La Mesa Police Department at (619) 667-1400. You may also call Crime Stoppers’ anonymous toll-free tip line (888) 580- TIPS (or www.sdcrimestoppers.com). You can remain anonymous, and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 for information in this case.
Traffic Information: In 2010, 10,228 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes. These alcohol-impaired driving fatalities accounted for 31 percent of the total motor vehicle traffic fatalities in the United States.
Traffic fatalities in alcohol-impaired driving crashes decreased by 4.9 percent from 10,759 in 2009 to 10,228 in 2010. The alcohol-impaired driving fatality rate per 100 million vehicle miles traveled (VMT) decreased to 0.34 in 2010 from 0.36 in 2009. An average of one alcohol-impaired driving fatality occurred every 51 minutes in 2010.
Drivers are considered to be alcohol-impaired when their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08 or higher. Thus, any fatal crash involving a driver with a BAC of .08 or higher is considered to be an alcohol-impaired driving crash. Despite these recent reductions, we need everyone’s help to continue reducing drinking and driving.
Crime Prevention/Emergency Preparedness: Preventing residential burglaries can be as simple as remembering to close and lock windows and doors before leaving the house and before bed. Report suspicious persons and behavior by calling the Police Department’s 24 hour, non emergency line: 619.667.1400. Suspicious activities includes persons peering or climbing over fences or into windows of home and vehicles, unknown persons moving belongings out of a neighbor’s home or someone going door-to-door trying door handles. For incidents in progress that threaten life or property, dial 9-1-1. For more information on contacting the Police, suspicious activity and home security, contact the Crime Prevention Unit at 619.667.7545.
