New Updates: CASE SOLVED! The thief is in police custody. This courageous woman named Sydney read a news article about my case on SFWeekly this morning and spotted this person walking down the street in the financial district. She followed her into a Starbucks. The suspect sat without ordering anything and started to find her next prey. This heroine called the police and waited at the coffee shop until the police arrived. She showed them the video footage and got her arrested. The major twist to this story was the thief was actually a male. He did identify himself as a transgender though. But according to the description I got from Sydney, he seems more of a guy than a girl. He had multiple fake identifications so the police had to take him down to the police station to get his finger prints to ID him. He already had several prior felony charges and I believe one pending warrant issued out on him. Also through the process, some people have come forward and claimed that they were victims of this guy as well. If you suspect you had your belongings stolen at one point in the past by this guy, please email any evidence or your police case number to email@example.com. Let them know you would like to link your case to mine (my case number is 140281005).
Sydney’s Twitter is @spfff. Please give her a warm thank you for being such a hero.
And thank you all for sharing my story. You made it all happen. Please accept my sincere gratitude for being such a good force in this world.
UPDATE: If you have any more information about the girl in black and white, please reach out to the San Francisco Police Department at (415) 315-2400.
