Auto Break-In Suspect Arrested in San Francisco

A San Francisco man was arrested on suspicion of criminal activities including possession of stolen property after he allegedly broke into a car and stole several items Thursday, police said.

Marcus Tyson, 26, was booked into the San Francisco County Jail on suspicion of an outstanding burglary warrant, possession of stolen property, carrying a concealed firearm and driving on a suspended or revoked license, according to police. The case began when a man returned to his rental car in the 600 block of Harrison Street around 1 p.m. and discovered that U.S. and foreign currency and other personal items had been stolen, police said.

Witnesses told the victim and police that they had seen a silver Honda Accord pull up next to the rental car. The witnesses said a man got out of the Accord and peered into the rental car, according to police. The witnesses gave the victim photos they had taken of the Accord.

Using the photos, investigators found the Accord on the unit block of Baldwin Court, police said. Tyson and a juvenile male were in the car, police said. Officers searched the car and found a loaded Glock .45 handgun and evidence of the auto burglary, according to police.

The young person was released to a guardian and Tyson was jailed, according to police.
