Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert tells KFBK the recent smash and grab robberies a are the result of California laws that are weak on crime, specifically Prop 47.
On Monday, burglars targeted shops at the Grove in a smash-and-grab spree. The violent smash and grab robbery at the Grove capped off days of similar of jaw-dropping crimes in the Bay Area. Eighty robbers plowed their way into a Nordstrom, and in San Francisco’s Union Square Friday night, numerous stores were either burglarized or vandalized.
Gov. Gavin Newsom spoke to the need of better prosecution of suspects.
“I have no sympathy or empathy for people smashing and grabbing, stealing people’s items, creating havoc and terror in our streets. None,” Newsom said.
