It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood for a San Francisco Walgreens. A man on a bicycle stopped in, loaded up a grocery bag with stolen items and rode off. You can watch the video footage below:
The thievery has become a trend within the city, which has caused several locations to actually close because they can't continue to take the financial hit from frequent robberies. San Francisco Supervisor Ahsha Safai stated:
"Seventeen Walgreens over the last five years, almost every Gap retail outlet is gone, CVS is under assault."
And under California law, theft of merchandise under $950 is considered a misdemeanor.
