The San Francisco Police Department is asking the public’s help in identifying a group of suspects who have allegedly been stealing cellphones on the J-Church Muni line.
The light-rail surveillance camera captured photos of the alleged thieves as they took off with a phone. The video, released by the Mission Police Station, shows a man running out of the train, presumably after taking someone’s phone.
It’s possible that the same group is responsible for other thefts on the J-Church line, according to the Mission Police Station’s Twitter feed.
SFPD warned Muni riders to secure their phones and other personal items when sitting next to the door.
