Mr. Jinks and Ms. Jones were arraigned on September 27, 2023, and September 26, 2023, respectively.
Mr. Jinks has been charged with organized retail theft (PC 490.4(a)(1)), second-degree commercial burglary (PC 459), grand theft (PC 487(a)), conspiracy to commit any crime (PC 182(a)(1), contributing to the delinquency of a minor (PC 272(a)(1)) and obstructing a peace officer (PC 148(a)(1)).
Ms. Jones was charged with organized retail theft (PC 490.4(a)(1), second-degree commercial burglary (PC 459), grand theft (PC 487(a)), conspiracy to commit any crime (PC 182(a)(1), receiving stolen property (PC 496) and giving a false name to a peace officer (PC 148.9(b)).
“Brazen organized retail theft has become far too commonplace in San Francisco and is having a devastating impact on our retail community,” said District Attorney Brooke Jenkins. “Groups who come to San Francisco to do engage in this kind of behavior should know that when caught, they will be prosecuted vigorously and face consequences for these crimes that impact residents, workers and businesses.”
Mr. Jinks and Ms. Jones are alleged to have participated in a mass commercial burglary of a clothing retailer on the 2000 block of Fillmore Street on September 21, 2023, with 7 additional co-conspirators. San Francisco Police officers arrested Mr. Jinks and Ms. Jones with two juvenile accomplices shortly after the reported burglary. San Francisco Police report recovering $7,290 in stolen merchandise.
Mr. Jinks and Ms. Jones next court date is October 5, 2023, for the preliminary hearing in this matter. The District Attorney’s Office sought to detain Mr. Jinks and Ms. Jones pending trial because they were both on release on unrelated charges at the time of the alleged offense. The court did not rule on the People’s motion to detain and set bail in the amount of $50,000 for Mr. Jinks and released Ms. Jones on her own recognizance. She is ordered to stay 150 yards away from the clothing retailer and appear at her next court date and all subsequent court dates.
If convicted of all charges, and all allegations are found to be true, Mr. Jinks faces more than six years in State Prison and Ms. Jones faces more than four years in State Prison.
