Cops Bust 44 Alleged Fugitives in the Tenderloin

Posted By on Thu, Oct 18, 2012 at 4:15 PM


Yesterday, San Francisco police rounded up dozens of suspects who had been on the lam during a five-hour enforcement in the Tenderloin. 

Cops focused primarily on locating fugitives in the Tenderloin where they say there's a high concentration of wanted parolees. During the morning operation, they rounded up 44 suspects, arresting them on various felony and misdemeanor charges.

Of the suspects arrested, 13 are on active parole, 29 were booked for felony charges or felony warrants, and 15 were arrested on misdemeanor charges or misdemeanor warrants.

This isn't the first time San Francisco police roamed the streets looking for fugitives -- and it won't be the last. Police will continue to partner with state and county agencies to catch suspects allegedly running from the law. 

So don't get too cocky if you managed to dodge the cops this time around, because they will be back -- soon.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
