District Attorney Brooke Jenkins stated, "As our city continues to combat brazen retail theft, my office will work diligently to hold those who are arrested for these crimes accountable." This commitment signifies the city's determination to protect its businesses, employees, and residents from the scourge that retail theft has become.
Despite these efforts, challenges persist. Both Luckett and Fitch were released on their own recognizance, even with the District Attorney's Office's attempts to detain them pretrial due to the public safety risk they pose.
With the Fillmore Street case still under active investigation, authorities continue to solicit information from the public to further their efforts in combating retail theft. The San Francisco Police Department has established a tip line to facilitate the reporting of any pertinent information while ensuring anonymity for those who come forward.
