“To help reduce retail thefts and to hold those committing these crimes accountable, the San Francisco Police Department Burglary Unit (Fencing & Organized Retail Crime investigators) and Field Operations Bureau, pre-planned a shoplifting enforcement operation. A retail store located on the 700 block of Mission Street and the 200 block of Winston Drive was chosen for the operation due to the high number of shoplifting incidents the businesses were experiencing.

On Tuesday, December 12, 2023, the operation was successful in arresting a total of 18 suspects listed below. Two were booked at San Francisco County Jail #1 for outstanding warrants and the on-view theft charges. One suspect was booked at San Francisco County Jail #1 for on-view felony theft charges. Twelve suspects were cited for shoplifting and released from the scene. The stolen property was seized by officers during the operation and returned to the store. The SFPD will continue to conduct these operations throughout San Francisco in the hopes of reducing thefts that are targeting our businesses.
