Police Puzzler is Child’s Play

The SFPD Bayview station sends out amazing crime reports every week (D10 Watch posts many of them, and I try to post interesting Dogpatch crime). Recently their letter included a puzzler from the soon-to-retire Captain Paul Chignell.


Please send answers to the trivia question to

At 4701 3rd Street a retail shop operated from 1937
until 1985 when it moved to San Carlos and still
operates in that City today. What is the name of the
shop and what did they sell? First five (5) winners will
receive thirty (30) police stickers for children.

The answer is the Olsen Nolte Saddle Shop. In 1943 the phone number was “water 5151.” 😀

As much as I would love 30 police stickers*, I will let actual children have them.
