The newly independent Mission Local reports:
A federal grand jury in San Francisco indicted two police officers and a former police officer who were assigned to the Mission Station with “conspiracies to distribute controlled substances, against civil rights, and to commit theft concerning federally-funded programs,” according to a press release issued Thursday from from the U.S. Attorney’s office.
One officer was also charged with extortion.
The Mission Station defendants include Sergeant Ian Furminger, 47, of Pleasant Hill, Officer Edmond Robles, 46, of Danville and Reynaldo Vargas, 45, of Palm Desert, California.
The defendants were issued a federal summons and will make their initial appearances tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. before the US Court Judge Elizabeth D. Laporte in federal court in San Francisco.
Defendant Vargas will appear before Judge Laporte at 2:00 p.m. today.
Multiple weeks in a row now. I mean, it must be fun to not care about parking tickets, but the other consequence is my gutter doesn’t get swept
This morning on Feb 1 around 9:45am a man tried to force his way into our house. I was in the shower and my wife heard our doorbell ring. Assuming it was the mailman, she opened the door, but found a shirtless white male, about 5’8″ tall with short brown hair and stubble. He said “Oh hey!” and immediately tried to enter our home. She pushed him out by forcing the door closed. Soon after he rang the door bell again and said “I have a cupcake for you!” By that time we had called 911 and the police showed up soon after. The man had indeed left a cupcake on our doorstep but was nowhere to be found. Other neighbors reported a stranger ringing their doorbells or knocking on their doors immediately prior to this event.
Watch your backs, people!

Just a public service announcement. Someone stole $900 out of my Bank of America account yesterday from the 16th and Mission ATM. Apparently, I hadn’t completely signed out of my account (even though it said “Thank you for using this ATM” or whatever) and someone got into my account by re-entering my PIN # (which he/she must have watched me enter). I wouldn’t be surprised if someone sits there all day and does this repeatedly. Heads up to be extra furtive when entering your PIN and to make sure your transaction is finished before walking away!
A friend of Mission Mission writes in to tell us that her partner was assaulted last week, allegedly by the man in this still from their lobby’s security camera.
“WANTED FOR ASSAULT: WED. 10/30 9:16PM This man stalked me home into my apartment lobby and punched me in the head and jaw several times after I brushed by him at 18th and Valencia as he was standing in the crowded street looking at his phone. The last thing he said was “I know where you live!” Caucasian, 5′ 10″, 30-35, 170-180 lbs, short dark hair. He was wearing a tan or gray sweater and blue jeans. If anyone has any information on this attack please call the SFPD: (415) 558-5400, case #130922883. Flyers will be going up all over town….”
