"We've seen an absolute explosion of auto break-ins," said San Francisco Supervisor Scott Wiener to the Santa Cruz Sentinel, adding that "[t]here are areas in my district where you'll have 10 cars on a single block that have been broken into."

That anecdotal tally sounds totally plausible according to stats from the SFPD obtained by the Examiner showing year-over-year crime. From January to June of this year as compared to the same period last year property crime was up 22% and violent crime increased by 13%.

Here are those numbers:
