SAN FRANCISCO—Officials from the San Francisco Police Department have arrested Jeremiah Jefferson, 21, of San Francisco for his role in a series of auto burglaries in the Mission and Embarcadero District.

The SFPD reported that on April 4, an auto burglary victim went to SFPD’s Southern Station to report a crime. The victim noted that at approximately 1:45 p.m. on April 3, he parked his car on The Embarcadero near Battery Street and returned to find a window broken. The victim provided video surveillance footage recorded by his car to Central Station investigators. The footage enabled officers with SFPD’s Northern Station to identify Jefferson as the suspect.

On April 7, officers arrested Jefferson who 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. He was booked at San Francisco County Jail on two counts of second degree burglary and probation violation.

The SFPD is still investigating the case. Anyone with information is asked to contact the SFPD 24-hour tip line at (415) 575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD.
