San Francisco police today identified four men who were arrested after allegedly trying to rob a marijuana growing operation in the city’s Bayview District on Wednesday. The standoff began around 3:50 a.m. in the 2100 block of Jennings Street, where suspects wearing ski masks tried to rob the facility, which was apparently permitted by the city and contained about 1,000 marijuana plants, police spokesman Sgt. Mike Andraychak said. Three suspects, Damien Thomas, 33, Joseph Nathaniel Hall, 30, and Daniel Contreras, 40, then fled on foot but were arrested about two blocks away, Andraychak said. A fourth suspect, 22-year-old William Frederick Carter, remained inside with employees there for several hours while police surrounded the building and closed off nearby streets. Around 8:30 a.m., officers led four people believed to be facility employees out of the building, and the standoff continued until about 10 a.m. when Carter finally surrendered to tactical officers accompanied by a K-9 unit, Andraychak said.

Evidence recovered at the scene included multiple ski masks and two handguns, police said. The four suspects, all San Francisco residents, were booked into jail on suspicion of burglary, robbery, false imprisonment, kidnapping and conspiracy. Thomas will face additional charges of possessing stolen property, battery on a police officer and resisting arrest, while Carter is facing firearm and probation violations and Hall is accused of resisting a police officer. No one was injured during the robbery or standoff, which included the Police Department’s SWAT team, crisis negotiators, firefighters, medical responders and forced the San Francisco Municipal Railway 54-Felton bus line to be rerouted.

  • I’m impressed, I ought to say. Seriously rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the concern is some thing that not enough people today are speaking intelligently about. I’m really happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
