San Francisco Police Arrest 760 Suspected Drug Dealers in Ongoing Crackdown

In a significant development, the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) has apprehended a staggering 760 individuals suspected of engaging in narcotics sales over the past nine months. This information was disclosed by the department on Wednesday, shedding light on their ongoing joint efforts to eradicate open-air drug markets in the Tenderloin and SoMa areas. The SFPD, in collaboration with the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department, the California Highway Patrol, and other agencies, has been working tirelessly to clamp down on public drug dealing and fentanyl use.

According to the SFPD, a total of 767 suspected drug dealers have been arrested as part of this operation. Additionally, 1,051 individuals have been apprehended for narcotics use during the same time period. Furthermore, 604 people have been taken into custody for warrants and other related matters within the scope of this joint effort. The SFPD has also successfully seized 139 kilograms of narcotics over the past nine months, with a significant portion consisting of fentanyl. Approximately 71.8 kilograms, equivalent to around 150 pounds, of the narcotics seized were fentanyl.

The city of San Francisco initiated this collaborative endeavor last year, aiming to combat the proliferation of open-air drug markets. The SFPD’s relentless pursuit of justice, in conjunction with their partner agencies, underscores their commitment to ensuring public safety and curbing the distribution and use of dangerous substances.
