Epidemic of smart phone thefts on Bay Area public transit

Friday, February 8, 2013

The Chronicle freshens up an ongoing—and apparently worsening—story involving the rise in smart phone and other electronic equipment thefts from passengers using Bay Area public transportation. (See, for example, this piece from ABC 7 back in October.) On Muni, larceny of such items jumped 83 percent to 161 reported incidents during the last three months of 2012. Robberies during the same period: up 82 percent.
