Nearly 300 items were recovered from a fencing operation in Mission District Tuesday.
Photos SF Mayor London Breed posted on social media show items being sold illegally on the streets, including food, hygiene products, and over-the-counter medicines.
Breed calls the recovery “another successful operation addressing unpermitted vending & fencing of stolen goods.”
Last year, the SF Board of Supervisors authored a new street vendor enforcement code that went into effect earlier this year. District 9 Supervisor Hillary Ronen, who oversees the Mission District, co-authored the new street vending code.
Ronen’s legislative aid, Santiago Lerma, says the new bill will get more enforcement of these fencing operations in her district. The San Francisco Department of Public Health, SFPD, and the San Francisco Department of Public Works all contributed to the cleanup of this fencing operation, according to Breed.
