9 Charged In Smash-and-Grab Robberies at Louis Vuitton, Other Stores At San Francisco’s Union Square

November 24, 2021 at 3:30 am

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Nine people are facing a series of felony charges following a smash-and-grab robbery at the Louis Vuitton store in San Francisco’s Union Square and at other businesses on Friday.

San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin announced charges Tuesday against the suspects; among them, looting during a state of emergency, second-degree commercial burglary, grand theft, receiving stolen property, and carrying a loaded firearm.

“I want to be clear about something. These are not petty thefts. This is not misdemeanor conduct. This is felony conduct and we are charging felonies today,” Boudin said during a Tuesday afternoon news conference.

The DA’s office said five people were arrested in connection with the incident at the Louis Vuitton store. The same night, three people were arrested for burglarizing a cannabis dispensary, and one other arrested for burglarizing a Walgreens. Two of the nine arrested were allegedly carrying firearms.

The suspects in the Louis Vuitton incident were identified as Francill White, Tomiko Lamar Miller, Kimberly Cherry and Ivan Speed. The suspects in the cannabis dispensary burglary were identified as Raymond Phillips, Edward James Jr., and Michael Ray. Daron Wilson was identified as the suspect in the Walgreens burglary.

2. Not just SF...

..."Several other stores and shopping malls across the region were targeted, with thieves storming into stores in Walnut Creek, Pleasanton, Hayward and San Jose."

"At least 18 people broke into a Nordstrom department store in Los Angeles Monday night."

"Fourteen robbers barged into a Louis Vuitton store in suburban Chicago last week."

Years ago, there was a car theft ring from LA that came up to SF and would steal cars off dealer lots. 10-20 at a time, dealers with quick access to interstate freeways. Blitz and bolt. If they didn't have enough gas to make it back to LA, they would leave them on the road and torch them.

7. I would have thought a cannabis store would be a bad place to rob.

Because of the nature of the business and the fed ban on banking lots of cash...would equal serious security or at the least a shotgun.

8. guns plus drugs equal serious federal attention

It's a gray area, at best. For many pot shops, it's not worth the risk.

Guns with drugs has long been a priority for federal prosecution (e.g. Operation Exile).
