'Fugitive Recovery' Operation Yields 70 Arrests in San Francisco

Seventy people were arrested the Tenderloin district of San Francisco Wednesday in what police called a "fugitive recovery operation" in which people named in arrest warrants were the main targets, police said.

Of those 70, 50 were wanted on outstanding arrest warrants issued in San Francisco, San Mateo, Siskiyou, Contra Costa, San Bernardino, Alameda, Napa and San Joaquin counties, as well as the cities of Redwood City, Pleasanton, Pleasant Hill, Santa Rose, Eureka and Belmont, for a wide variety of suspected charges. Others were taken into custody for parole or probation violations.

Sixty-seven of the 70 people arrested were booked into the San Francisco County Jail; the other three were admitted to local hospitals for medical care.

San Francisco Tenderloin Station officers led the operation, assisted by San Francisco Sheriff's deputies, California Department of Corrections parole agents and officers from San Francisco's Southern station.

No officers or suspects were injured, police said.

Wednesday's sweep was the latest in ongoing efforts led by Tenderloin Station officers to reduce crime in that district, police said.
