What is DA Boudin doing about car break ins?
Of the more than 20,000 reported smash-and-grab car break in cases reported each year, police make arrests in less than 1%. DA Boudin is targeting the higher-level criminals who profit off the city’s smash-and-grab epidemic.
DA Boudin created Operation Autopilot, an extensive operation where the DA’s Office placed bait cars with bags inside containing items with tracking devices on them. The Office was then able to track the flow of the stolen goods–which went to Southern California, Texas, and even internationally. The DA’s Office then arrested one suspect and recovered over 1000 laptops, phones, cameras and other devices.
