The woman caught on camera stealing a laptop and iPhone from a local coffee shop was busted on suspicion of theft and stolen property shortly after surveillance video of her crimes went viral earlier this week. But the now-infamous video was apparently only one of the times she's been filmed making off with someone else's property.
In the new footage, brought to us by SFist pal and local treasure Stanley Roberts, 32-year-old Paul Daniel Raynal, or someone who bears a striking resemblance to her, can be seen lifting a 42-inch flatscreen from an apartment building on Taylor Street in Lower Nob Hill. In the new footage, the suspect approached the buzzer and pretended to call someone in the building. When an actual tenant left through the front door, the suspect walked right in as they held the door for her. Once inside, she had easy pickings of the flatscreen TV which had just been delivered the same morning.
Although Raynal's arrest on Monday was not directly connected to the coffee shop incident, the viral footage did help cops identify her. She was found with stolen credit cards and—big surprise—she was already on parole for burglary and probation for grand theft.
