Heh. Remember that Seinfeld episode in which a parking valet's body odor couldn't be removed from Seinfeld's car?

I can imagine the discussion between the cops: "Who wants to take him in?" "Not on MY car." "Let him sit in YOUR car". "Can someone else drive?" "I wish I had a motorcycle!"

This looks a lot like a guy who hangs out by the Castro and El Camino Real bus stop all the time, I see him walking up and down El Camino around that area a lot too. Not sure how much the MV police interact with the homeless but if this is the same guy I'm thinking of then I'm surprised they needed the public's help to identify him.

I'm amazed that tech hasn't gotten to the point where it's cheap enough for security cameras to be upgraded.

Hello,
This story has not been reported correctly.First of all the cop did not spot
William Brackin as he left the CVS. In fact the CVS Assistant Manager Jeff called the cops as he followed William Brackin out of the CVS from California Street to Castro Street the whole time on the phone with the cops while following William Brackin until the cops showed up and he pointed out William Brackin as the man they were looking for and at that point is when the cops first observed William Brackin on Castro Street & detained him then subsequently arrested him. I would like to say thank you Jeff for being so courageous & leading the cops to the suspect.
GREAT JOB JEFF!
