SFPD Make Arrest & Seize Narcotics in Ingleside Police District
On August 11, 2013, at approximately 9:00 am, San Francisco Police Officers from Ingleside Station responded to the 3300 block of Mission Street on a reported vandalism and burglary call for service. A resident in the area reported that a male had requested permission to enter his apartment. Shortly after refusing to let the male inside the building, the resident heard a loud banging noise and found a first floor window had been broken and was stained with blood.
The responding officers followed a fresh blood trail from the sidewalk to the first apartment unit where the window had been broken. After conducting a well-being check, the officers did not find anyone inside the unit. But the blood trail continued to a second floor unit where officers knocked on the door and the person that answered the door had blood on his hands and pants. That person was later identified as the male that was refused entry into the building by the reporting resident. SFPD units conducted another well being check of the second floor unit. During the check for other injured persons, a second male was located inside the unit.
While conducting the well being checks, officers saw several narcotic packages on the floor space in plain view throughout the apartment unit. The officers secured the unit and detained the two males who had been inside the apartment until a search warrant was obtained.
SFPD seized 23 kilograms of MDMA in the form of powder and 4.5 kilograms of MDMA in the form of pills. SFPD also seized almost $30,000 in US Currency and computer equipment.
The two male suspects were booked into the County Jail on the following charges:
1. Steven Terrell, WM, 31 years of age, SF Resident, booked Possession of Controlled Substance for Sale (2 Counts); Maintaining a Place for Selling or Using a Controlled Substance; and Conspiracy to Commit a Crime.
2. Benjamin Hagerl, WM, 36 years of age, SF Resident, booked Possession of Controlled Substance for Sale (2 Counts); Maintaining a Place for Selling or Using a Controlled Substance; and Conspiracy to Commit a Crime.
