There's been recent reports about more break-ins at tech offices around San Francisco, and while we don't have statistics to give you a current snapshot, we do have some recent video footage of the alleged crimes in action.

These videos are reportedly from a surveillance camera at the BuildZoom office earlier this month. YouTube user David Petersen, who is also the founder of the company, posted the following videos and this message to viewers:

The BuildZoom office at 650 Mission Street in San Francisco was burglarized on Sunday, July 6th, at 7:02 am.

This person has burglarized at least two other offices in SOMA, and was spotted attempting to break into our building about 2 weeks ago by our cleaners. We believe that she had a copy of a key to our unit.

I will personally pay $1000 to the first person to identify this woman. If you have any idea who it is, please email Thank you!

She came back 20 minutes later to steal more, but our alarm went off and scared her away

And Part 2:

Even ballsier burglars are reportedly blending into the workplace during the day to steal laptops and other fun things from employees there. "They will blend in, take a few electronic items and flee often without being noticed," Officer Gordon Shyy tells us.

  • 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.'"
