SFPD Makes Arrests in Central District Auto Burglary Abatement Operation 21-213

On the evening of Thursday, December 2, 2021, San Francisco Police officers were in the Central Police District conducting an auto burglary abatement operation. Officers observed a silver sedan in the area of Beach and Hyde Streets they recognized as the suspect vehicle wanted in connection with several auto burglaries in the area. Plainclothes officers followed the vehicle which continued to operate on city streets onto eastbound Interstate 80. Officers followed the vehicle onto the freeway and onto Oakland city streets until it came to a stop on the 800 block of West MacArthur Boulevard.

The suspects exited their vehicle, and the officers approached the suspects and identified themselves as police. Both suspects attempted to flee on foot. Following a brief foot pursuit, both suspects were taken into custody. The suspects were identified as 23-year-old Zaion Stone of Antioch, and 21-year-old Jaron Jones of Elk Grove. Officers searched the suspect vehicle and located personal property and evidence connecting them with four car burglaries that were reported that day.

Stone and Jones were later transported to San Francisco County Jail and booked on five charges of second-degree burglary (459 PC), receiving stolen property (496(a) PC), possession of burglary tools (466 PC), conspiracy (182(a)(1) PC), and vehicle registration fraud (4463(a)(1) CVC). In addition, Stone was charged with probation violation (1203.2(a) PC).
