Uptick in San Francisco retail theft
SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) - Retail theft is on the uptick in San Francisco, and while luxury goods were once the focus, now it seems as if those stealing are going for lower end merchandise.
Police confirm retail theft is on the uptick specifically in parts of North Beach, Fisherman's Wharf, and Union Square.
While luxury goods were once the prime target, groups of people are now expanding to drug stores.
Viewer video sent to KRON4 shows a robbery at the Walgreens on Columbus and Bay streets last week. But it's not just Walgreens.
The CVS Pharmacy at Stockton and Sutter was hit back in June. People are seen taking what they want with apparently no care in the world.
