I guess we know now why we never see
any BART police patroling the parking lots
and stations. They are busy writing these
lengthy expository reports of crime.

2 John April 21, 2014 at 4:26 PM

These crimes would drop if the BART cops actually were at BART stations. Why they have patrol cars is beyond me, they should be on the trains and at the stations.

3 MrDioji April 21, 2014 at 4:36 PM

So is my N. Concord station super-safe, or is it not included in the scope of the report?

4 mwo1859 April 21, 2014 at 4:39 PM

Problem solved. Let the folks take there bikes with them. BART is looking like the worse transportation ever. Add a special car for bikers.

5 anon April 21, 2014 at 5:05 PM

Everybody victimized because they are taking bart should get free rides for a year. I bet Bart doesn’t contact the victims and say they are sorry those things happen.

6 mike m April 21, 2014 at 5:14 PM

I’m with John on this one. They need to walk around and not sit in their cars all day.

7 Elwood April 21, 2014 at 5:27 PM

“A sergeant arrived at the scene to approve the arrest.”

Gotta love BART pretend police.

DISBAND INCOMPETENT BUMBLING BART POLICE NOW!

8 Silva April 21, 2014 at 5:41 PM

Tough week for bicyclists.

9 Dorothy April 21, 2014 at 5:59 PM

“The suspect was found to be intoxicated in public and to have a history of child endangerment arrests.”

Wonder if that was the same one as a week or two ago? Relative gets tired of having the kids dumped on them and give them back to the woman?

10 PO'd April 21, 2014 at 6:27 PM

Really makes you want to ride BART doesn’t it?

11 Anonymous April 21, 2014 at 6:28 PM

With a few exceptions an Officer cant arrest for a misdemeanor not committed in his presence. Disturbing the peace is a misdemeanor. Is there more to this story, or did they screw up?

12 Jojo Potato April 21, 2014 at 7:15 PM

“in the paid area of the station”? So the bike was locked up inside the station and still got stolen? Fine job by the agent, must have been busy adding up his bank statement. Or maybe one of those parties that are so common with the agent and other BART friends in the booth jawing away ignoring everthing else.

13 RANDOM TASK April 21, 2014 at 8:09 PM

14 Mark April 21, 2014 at 8:31 PM

Why are the BART police never at BART?

15 funny man April 21, 2014 at 8:48 PM

its nice to know Barney Fife has inspired a generation of law enforcement!

16 anon April 21, 2014 at 8:48 PM

Seems to me they need a better place for bikes!! Come ride the Bart….just don’t expect your bike to be waiting when you return.

17 That Guy April 21, 2014 at 8:49 PM

There is always more to the story on anything reported here on Claycord. The stories are cherry picked by the mayor. Two of these were reported on Claycord last week.

Just look at the date range in the reports. 4/4 through 4/21. That is 17 days. If you listed the crimes that were reported and the subjects that were arrested in the City of Concord during those 17 days it would pale in comparison. Let’s be honest I doubt the City of Concord even records a bike theft. This city averages about 15 residential and commercial burglaries a week. I would hate to see the number of car thefts, and auto burglaries, let alone drug arrests numbers compared to BART it would certainly make BART’s number look very low.

The City of Concord could only wish to have a crime rate as low as BART per capita. How many people Murdered and or shot since the year started in Concord? Funny how people get all up in arms about the small amount of crime on BART when this city is teetering on becoming Gangland.

18 Bart needs help April 21, 2014 at 9:56 PM

Why are all the creeps penetrating Bart? If they upscaled it and cleaned it …
They would run/…. They are attracted too the poo smell and lice!

19 Anon April 21, 2014 at 11:14 PM

Write up these logs do not in fact demonstrate that BART cops are anything but worthless.

“Hey man, this ain’t no CSI, ay righ?” – Quote from th BART cop who did nothing to help me after my car was broken into on BART property.

20 huey9k April 22, 2014 at 3:16 AM

Still over here trying to figure out why BART cops need to be driving around in Cars on the ROAD….

21 @MrDioji April 22, 2014 at 8:13 AM

Shhhhh, don’t let on. Prefer all the neer-do-wells go to other stations.

22 BART salaries April 22, 2014 at 8:45 AM

This would be a good time to post BART salaries including all benefits, anyone?

23 Mr. Pink April 22, 2014 at 10:06 AM

“The victim stated one of the suspects grabbed him from behind as he was off boarding a bus at the station.”

WTF is the bus driver doing during all of this?

24 anon April 22, 2014 at 10:21 PM

where’s the article about the crack smoker?

25 anon April 23, 2014 at 10:48 PM

Bueler?

26 anon April 24, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Where are the video cams? We have them all over the city, but none where they are truly needed.
