Electronics Store Targeted In Smash-And-Grab


SAN FRANCISCO—An rash of smash-and-grab robberies continues to plague San Francisco.

A group of robbers drove a vehicle through a building that housed a high-end electronics store. The break-in occurred on February 27 at 4 a.m., the robbery attempt caused a minimum of $100,000 worth of damages to the building.

At this juncture, it has not been publicly reported what electronics, if any, was stolen from the retailer.

Friday’s robbery was the most recent in a surge of smash-and-grab heists.

The San Francisco Police Department is looking into the possibility that the latest robbery is related to a rash of crimes that have victimized at least six retailers dating back to October 2014.

Previous robberies have not only focused upon high-end merchandise, but also, historical artifacts, as a number of valuable gold nuggets were recently stolen from the city’s Wells Fargo museum.

Anyone with information concerning Friday’s robbery, or any of the other robberies that have taken place, is urged to contact the the SFPD anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the beginning of the message.
