An estimated $19,500 in merchandise stolen in a mass retail theft in Pleasanton turned up in a double-parked car in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood, San Francisco police said Friday.
A passenger in the car fled from police, but the driver, 20-year-old Angelleak Duncan of Oakland, was taken into custody on suspicion of receiving stolen property, possession of burglary tools and parking violations, police said.
The arrest took place about 5:15 p.m., Aug. 25, in the 600 block of Polk Street near Eddy Street, when officers contacted the driver about the parking violations and arranged for the vehicle to be towed, police said.
“While conducting an inventory search of the vehicle for the tow, officers found several bags of suspected stolen property inside of the vehicle,” police said in a statement. “Officers discovered that the property had been stolen in a mass retail theft incident, where multiple subjects ran into a retail store and stole a large amount of merchandise, that had occurred earlier in the day in Pleasanton.”
Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the San Francisco Police Department at 415-575-4444 or text to TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD.
