How We Address SF’s Auto Burglary Challenge

Dear fellow San Franciscans,

I write today in regards to auto break-ins.  I’ve received emails from many of you, and I wanted to take a moment to communicate directly about what my office is doing to reduce break-ins in San Francisco.  I recognize that these crimes are a stain on our quality of life and the charm of our amazing city, and my hope is that this email will provide some answers about where we are and where we go from here.

As you may know, my office prosecuted 82% of the 490 auto break-ins last year that resulted in an arrest, and our average disposition included county jail time and felony probation.

The vast majority of these crimes are committed by a small number of people.  Accordingly, this week, my office announced a plan to target the most prolific offenders which can have an outsized impact on the overall number of incidents in San Francisco.  This multi-disciplinary approach out of my office successfully resulted in major cases such as Operation Cold Day, which netted the most arrests in one day in ATF history.  It also led to dozens of defendants indicted in an organized retail theft conspiracy that spanned the United States.  In fact, through this process my office identified Carlos Paz, the “main fence” in an international multimillion-dollar fencing operation.    (more…)

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) is warning customers to be aware of a recent telephone scam involving water bills. Over the past two days, the SFPUC has heard from several dozen customers who say they have received a call from someone impersonating a representative of “SF Utilities.”

According to the reports, the alleged representative is threatening to shut off water service unless immediate cash payment is made. Customers have been directed to make payment at Walgreen’s, CVS and Rite Aid stores in San Francisco.

These calls are not coming from the SFPUC and at no time does the agency direct customers to pay their water bills in-person anywhere outside of authorized payment locations.

The SFPUC is conducting an internal investigation and, at this time, there is no evidence that there has been a breach of private customer information.

Additionally, the SFPUC has reported the incidents to the San Francisco Police Department, the FBI and the Federal Trade Commission.

Customers who receive these calls and wish to report them directly to law enforcement should contact the Federal Trade Commission at 877-382-4357.

Customers who have questions about their water bill should call the SFPUC customer service line at 415-551-3000.
