RECENT CRIME TRENDS Year after year we have seen an increase in certain types of crimes during the holidays. The Buena Park Police Department would like to make you aware of these types of crimes and offer some tips to help prevent becoming a victim. PACKAGE THEFTS - Criminals take advantage of the increase in online ordering and shipping to take unattended packages left on porches. When possible, request delivery notifications alerts be sent to you to let you know when a package has been delivered so that you or a neighbor can quickly take a package inside. When ordering from certain online vendors, try to use secure package delivery locations if you're not going to be home. Amazon offers Amazon locker locations which are secure, self-service kiosks where customers can pick up Amazon.com packages at a time and place that is convenient for them. In addition, consider having packages delivered to your place of business if allowed. VEHICLE BURGLARIES - Remember to remove all items of value from your vehicles, including anything that may appear to have value to someone looking in your windows. If you plan to store items in your trunk, place items inside PRIOR to arriving at your destination to avoid someone seeing where items of value may be. Please report any incidents of thefts to the police department, especially if you have surveillance video of possible suspects available. Images of suspects and vehicles, along with any patterns and trends, are disseminated to our patrol officers so that they may keep an eye out for repeat offenders, identify individuals who may have been contacted in the area, and direct patrols to areas where these types of crimes keep occurring. To report any crimes or suspicious activity, contact the Buena Park Police Department non-emergency line at 714-562-3901.

COLD CASE INVESTIGATION On Friday, October 30, 1970 at 9:30 a.m., Vicki Miner (pictured) left her residence for school. Vicki never reached the school and her parents filed a missing persons report the same day. Her body was discovered in a creek bottom on November 14, 1970 in a field frequented by horseback and motorcycle riders. Vicki had suffered a massive blow to her head causing a skull fracture that resulted in her death. She was fully clothed, however, her pants were unbuttoned and she was missing a brown leather cowhide belt. In addition to the missing belt, Vicki was also missing her dark brown leather strap sandals that had been repaired with a piece of orange coated electrical wire, and a dark brown suede finish purse with fringe on the outside. The purse contained her driver's license, social security card, several small plastic toy animals, and a small red Bible.

At approximately 4:23 am, officers were on scene at several window smash burglaries, in the area of Valley View and Orangethorpe. They observed a charter bus which was travelling westbound on the 91 freeway, careen out of control and collide with the chain linked fence behind the Marie Callender’s restaurant adjacent to the businesses. La Palma Police Department personnel were also on scene assisting with the burglaries as this occurred. After observing the accident all of the officers quickly responded to the bus to assess the injuries and render aid. They discovered the only occupant was the driver who was bleeding profusely from a large laceration to his leg. Buena Park Police Officer Gonzalez quickly applied a tourniquet which stopped the bleeding but the driver immediately went into shock when he observed the compound fracture to his other leg. Orange County Fire Authority personnel arrived soon after and took over medical treatment. We were later informed that an Orange County Fire Authority Battalion Chief opined that the driver’s femoral artery had been severed and had it not been for Officer Gonzalez’ quick actions he likely would have bled out before paramedics arrived. The California Highway Patrol later responded and handled the traffic collision investigation as it occurred in their jurisdiction. #BPPD #BuenaParkPD #collision #trauma #tourniquet #LifeSaving #QuickThinking #MultiAgencyCooperation City of La Palma California Highway Patrol Orange County Fire Authority

And please do not drink and drive. #BPPD #BuenaParkPD #Thanksgiving #Turkey #TurkeyDay #GobbleGobble #GobbleTillYouWobble #🍗 #🦃 Orange County Fire Authority

The BPPD would like to send you a friendly reminder to please drive safely this Holiday season, especially on long drives to visit your friends, family, and loved ones.

Has anyone seen Ms. Soriano? She has been found in Buena Park on prior occasions. If you have or know her whereabouts, please contact the Anaheim Police Department.

The incident this morning at Corey Elementary is being investigated as a suicide. There is no connection to the prior threats made at other schools and appears unrelated to the school itself.

Reference the threats made against the Buena Park High School and other area schools. The Anaheim Police Department has arrested the suspect. There was no credible threat. Subsequent posts of threats have been found to be reposts and there are still, no credible threats. No arrests have been made regarding those posts. These matters are taken very seriously and investigated to the fullest extent. As anonymous as some social media platforms appear to be, we can and will find those who make threats against our schools.

Follow up from a previous posting. Gorski has plead guilty and his sentencing is pending.

Recently we were made aware of an Instagram post referencing a threat to several local high schools. Anaheim Police Department posted a press release yesterday in regards to this threat stating the following: "A Western High School student was arrested Tuesday evening for allegedly threatening to commit acts of violence through multiple school shootings at Magnolia, Western, Cypress and Buena Park High Schools. A concerned Western High School student contacted Anaheim Police Department (APD) Sunday evening after seeing a troubling Instagram post screenshot on a Snapchat account. APD personnel worked closely with school staff and neighboring police departments to quickly identify the student responsible for the plan. The student was identified and arrested prior to the school shootings threatened to occur on Friday, Nov.17, 2017 per his Instagram post. The student, a 14-year old male freshman and Anaheim resident, was arrested for making criminal threats and will be booked at Orange County Juvenile Hall. The investigation has not revealed the student had the actual means or capability to carry out the threats and the schools are considered secure and safe. However, the timely notification and quick response highlights the partnership between the school districts, local police departments and APD, as well as our mission to provide a safe learning environment for Anaheim’s youth. The arrests should also serve as a message to all that the school district and the police department take these threats seriously and swift enforcement action will be taken in accordance with the letter of the law. Parents, staff, and students are encouraged to 'See Something, Say Something.'" A link to the press release can be found here - http://anaheim.net/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=1050

Stolen Vehicle Arrest/Suspicious Circumstances On 11-11-2017 at approximately 1:53am, two Buena Park Police Officers were patrolling in the area of Orangethorpe Avenue and Valley View Street when they observed a Toyota Tacoma leaving a parking lot which has been targeted for vehicle burglaries and stolen vehicle reports. The Tacoma was displaying paper plates which appeared to be tampered with. The officers noticed the Tacoma was displaying a "LA County Fire" firefighter sticker in the rear window and the driver was also wearing yellow reflective jacket that resembled a firefighter jacket. The driver made it a point to place his elbow out the window so the officers could see the jacket. The officers felt the circumstances were odd, especially since firefighters drive firetrucks on duty, not "unmarked" paper plated Toyota Tacoma's. While at an intersection, waiting at a red light, the officers decided to strike up a conversation with the driver who nodded his head at them. The driver was accompanied by a front passenger who was not wearing a reflective jacket. It didn't take long for the officers to realize the driver was not a firefighter, and they were speaking with a possible imposter When the light turned green, the officers stopped the Tacoma for vehicle code violations. Unknown to the officers, the vehicle was a reported stolen vehicle out of the city of Long Beach. A search of the vehicle revealed a replica handgun, burglary tools which are commonly used to forcibly open car doors, and possible stolen property (We're working on locating victims) The driver and passenger were taken into custody without incident. A thorough check of the parking lot where the suspects were seen leaving did not turn up any vehicles that appeared to be broken into.
