Now we know what crooks do with your stolen car: grocery shop.

A San Francisco woman says she was walking out of a Safeway store at 850 La Playa the other day and and spotted her car that had been stolen the day before on the 3500 block of Geary.

Just as she realized the car was hers, a woman jumped into the driver's side and drove off with a man in the passenger's side.

The victim ran back into the store and called 911, but when she came back out the car was gone, according to police reports.

As she waited outside for the cops to show up, the same woman in the stolen car returned to the parking lot -- just in time to meet the cops.

As the suspect drove in and out of the lot again, officers stopped the vehicle.

After questioning her a bit, they arrested the 31-year-old woman and charged her with possession of stolen property, a stolen auto, and a probation violation.

  • 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.'"
