San Francisco police are asking for your help in locating some really cool and valuable medals that were stolen during a residential burglary in the city's Bayview neighborhood last month.

During this break in, many items were stolen, but among the most valuable were two gold medallions that were given to the victim in return for his service in Saudi Arabia.

The medals, which have distinctive markings, are 2 1/2 inches by 1 1/2 inches. One of the medallions bears the inscription: "5 YEARS SERVICE," with "10gr" on the reverse side. The other reads, "20 YEARS SERVICE" and has "50gr" printed on its reverse.

Anyone with information regarding this burglary or the location of these stolen items is asked to contact the Bayview Station Investigation Team at 671-2357. Persons wishing to remain anonymous may use the Bayview Station Anonymous Tip Line at 822-8147.

  • 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.'"
