SAN FRANCISCO—Officials from the San Francisco Police Department Patrol Bureau Task Force (PBTF) arrested Jacquar McHenry, 25, of Vallejo on April 13 in connection to five auto burglaries in San Francisco. According to a press release from the SFPD, PBTF officers have been conducting an investigation on several leads they developed.

Such leads included information that Henry committed the auto burglaries in the regions of Marina District, Russian Hill, the Financial District and the South of Market Street Areas. Officers apprehended McHenry and subsequently conducted a search warrant on his residence in Vallejo. He was taken into custody last Wednesday at approximately 2:30 p.m. in Oakland, where he was served a search warrant and evidence was found tying the subject to the auto break-ins and tolls used to commit the crimes.

McHenry has been charged with five counts of auto burglary, three counts of felony possession of stolen property, two counts of possession of tools used to commit burglaries, and one count of committing a felony while out on bail for a similar offense.

He was also wanted for narcotics related offenses in Napa County. He is currently on felony probation in San Francisco for burglary, and is also on felony probation in Alameda County for narcotics related offenses. McHenry was out on bail for a previous arrest in which he was charged for breaking into three other cars in a Russian Hill neighborhood in San Francisco. Prior arrests for the suspect include burglary, possession of burglary tools, and auto burglary.

Authorities suspect that McHenry may be related to other unsolved burglaries. Anyone with information is asked to call the Anonymous Tip Line at (415) 575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411; begin the message with SFPD.
