Gov. Newsom promises to get tough with looting gangs ransacking luxury stores across the Bay Area despite presiding over woke ‘misdemeanor’ law

  • California Governor Gavin Newsom vowed to crack down on organized retail theft rings in the Bay Area
  • Newsom pledged ‘exponential level of support’ in the next state budget to help cities combat retail theft rings 
  • Meanwhile, the San Francisco Bay Area faced a third consecutive day of brazen shoplifting on Sunday
  • A group of about 40 to 50 teenage looters wielding hammers smashed glass cases at a Hayward jewelry store and ran off with an unknown amount of goods at around 5.30pm Sunday
  • The suspects also reportedly ran into other stores in the Southland Mall and walked away with clothes and shoes, though police do not know how many items were stolen
  • Just about an hour later, in San Jose, a group of suspects entered a Lululemon store in the outdoor mall at Santana Row and took an unknown amount of merchandise before they fled the scene
  • The thefts come one day after a group of 80 brazen shoplifters entered a Nordstrom in nearby Walnut Creek
  • Three people were arrested in that incident, in which three employees were injured
  • And on Friday,  a Luis Vuitton store in San Francisco’s Union Square was targeted and ransacked by a group of more than a dozen thieves
  • Residents in the business owners in the area cite a 2014 law that downgraded the theft of property less than $950 in value from a felony charge to a misdemeanor for the rise in thefts
  • They also blame woke San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin for a rise in crime – he now faces a recall election amid fury over his soft-on-crime stance
