Vehicle Theft Abatement Operation Nets 89 Stolen Vehicle Recoveries, Scores of Arrests

Over a nine day period in May, the San Francisco Police Department conducted a citywide concentrated enforcement and investigation operation specifically related to auto theft. It is believed that some of these stolen vehicles are used to commit all types of crimes within San Francisco, including robberies, gang related shootings, burglaries, and other thefts.

During the operation, 89 vehicles which had been reported stolen were recovered and more than 40 arrests were made. The San Francisco Police Department made arrests throughout the city for crimes including auto theft, burglary, robbery, possession of stolen property, narcotics, and outstanding warrants. Additionally, multiple serial auto burglars were identified and arrested, with two additional arrests made for unlawful firearms possession.

The operation included both uniformed and plainclothes officers. The San Francisco Police Department is committed to keeping the citizens of this city safe, and as such we plan to continue these operations in order to combat auto theft and related crime.

If anyone has been a victim of auto theft, auto burglary, or any other crime and has yet to report the incident, we encourage you to contact the San Francisco Police Department via (415) 553-0123 or please visit your nearest district police station.
