In San Francisco, a wave of organized retail thefts has finally met a roadblock as Savannah Church, 25, faced the music in court this week. Church, found guilty, was sentenced to a two-year stint behind bars after copping to a gambit of brazen snatch-and-grab thefts at local stores and an assault charge, the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office reported.

Church’s thieving spree weaved through the aisles of prominent retailers, including Walgreens, Sephora, and Bath and Body Works, successfully pilfered between April 23 and September 15 last year. Having pounced on the opportunity, Church and her partners carried out their criminal antics by storming the stores, grabbing handfuls of goods, and scramming before the register could chirp a single beep. This is while the victims and businesses ordered to receive over $43,000 in restitution by Church, bear the brunt of her criminal escapade.

But the escapades weren’t victimless – one attempt to stop Church’s light-fingered larceny escalated to violence when she assaulted a good Samaritan on the street. “Organized retail theft is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in San Francisco,” District Attorney Brooke Jenkins decreed, stressing the city’s commitment to accountability and working with victims and law enforcement to quell the retail raiders.

Assistant District Attorney Stephanie Zudekoff, backed by a steadfast paralegal team, led the charge in bringing Church to justice. Their case developed from the diligent legwork of the San Francisco Police Department’s General Work unit, having sifted through incidents that, because of the sheer number of heists, were rampant with thousands of stolen goods and spiked with the assault charge.
