Jeremiah Jefferson Tesla 852

On Thursday April 4, 2019 an auto burglary victim went to SFPD’s Southern Station to report the crime. The victim said that at approximately 1:45PM on the previous day, he parked his vehicle on The Embarcadero near Battery Street and returned to find that a window had been broken out. The victim provided video surveillance footage recorded by his vehicle to Central Station investigators. The footage enabled officers with SFPD’s Northern Station to identify the suspect.

On Sunday April 7, 2019 police officers arrested 21 year-old Jeremiah Jefferson of San Francisco.  Jefferson was also linked to an auto burglary that occurred on the 1700 block of Harrison Street that took place less than two hours before his arrest.

Jefferson was booked at San Francisco County Jail on two counts of second degree burglary and probation violation. A booking photo of Jefferson accompanies this news release.
