Ingleside Station Captain Message:

Emerging/Recent Crime Trends—There was a spike in thefts on MUNI buses this past weekend where victims were robbed of their cell phones and Ipads.  If you ride the bus alone, please keep your electronics tucked away and hidden so as to not be an attractant to thieves.
