Laptop Stolen? The Police Might Just Have Found Your Man.

Posted By on Fri, May 1, 2009 at 6:21 PM

If you're reading this blog post on a brand new laptop screen because your last one was jacked, read on.

Five times between March 31st and April 8th, the crime went down like this: A Latin male suspect would stride into a coffee shop, grab an unsuspecting java drinker's laptop, and run out to an awaiting black Honda getaway car. But fear not, cyber-cafe nerds, this doesn't mean you're going to have to interact with humans anytime soon. The San Francisco Police Department says they've finally caught the bad guys, so you may put on your headphones and zone out in peace.

On Friday, April 24, one of the dudes was arrested while driving the getaway car. Cops served search warrants at two additional locations and caught the second. The suspects did the rest of the work for them: It seems like the two suspects, identified as San Francisco residents German Duran, 25, and Jesus Duran, 25, had a guilty conscience. According to the proud police press release, "the suspects not only confessed to the thefts that [the robbery detective] was investigating, but admitted to additional robberies that were never reported."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
