Clearly, someone couldn't wait any longer to know their HIV status, and thought the quickest way to get results was to rip off a bunch of test kits from a Bay Area company.

At about 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday police were called to investigate some medical supplies that were found in John McLaren Park.

When they arrived, they realized the medical supplies were a bunch of HIV test kits -- the same ones that had been reported stolen out of San Jose earlier that morning, according to police reports.

Officers notified the San Jose company and asked them to come collect the stolen supplies, which were supposed to be shipped out to Mexico.

It is not known whether the HIV kits had been used.

  • 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.'"
