  • So-called smash and grab burglars, who break car windows and take anything left inside, are a nationwide problem. To get a closer look at these wrongdoers, Inside Edition hid a GPS tracking device inside a speaker and a designer purse, and left them in plain view in a car in San Francisco. It didn’t take long before two people broke the car’s back window and took the goods, in broad daylight. Then it was time to activate the GPS units and see where the stolen items were headed.

    I love how they just let the girl go but stay on the guy until he lets it go. No woman gets mad at sexism when jail time is involved😂

    that is true, but he is the one that got in the car. same as when a cop chase's a driver running they go after the driver if there is more then one in the car.

    Stay away from San Francisco. It is a safe-haven for criminals. The left wing loons who run the city refuse to do anything about it.

  • Alexander  (5 days ago)

    Democrats running a city = homeless and criminal haven

    It's every man and woman for themselves unfortunately. Citizens packing weapons and perhaps one individual willing to take the vigilante route or perhaps more.
