Alex Rodriguez’s perceived special treatment from SFPD doesn’t go over well with other car break-in victims

A thief walked off with $500,000 worth of merchandise from the
vehicle that Alex Rodriguez parked in San Francisco.

Poor guy.

Imagine rummaging through a random SUV on the streets of San
Francisco, hoping to find some spare change and maybe something
worth $100 or so. You’re rushing to complete your petty theft,
but the thoughtless guy who’s renting this vehicle decided to
leave jewelry, computers, gold, frankincense, myrrh or whatever
other silly things mega-millionaires leave lying around for thieves
to abscond with. And now this clueless, unsuspecting thief has just
graduated to grand larceny.

Thanks, A-Rod. Thanks a lot.

Make no mistake about it, this thief will be caught: We all know
that car break-ins in San Francisco are always, always solved.

As we
previously reported
, the former New York Yankee-turned-baseball
analyst parked his rented Nissan SUV a few blocks away from Oracle
Park following ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball broadcast of the game
between the San Francisco Giants and the Philadelphia Phillies.

Rodriguez and some of his ESPN colleagues were having a late
dinner when the theft occurred sometime between 9 and 11 p.m.,
according to police.

NBC Bay Area tweeted that the break-in occurred at Fourth and
Brannan streets, and that there were still remnants of broken glass
from the theft in front of Marlowe restaurant as of Monday.

Judging by a video from KTVU, CSI San Francisco appeared to have
been at the scene collecting evidence.

Got Alex Rodriguez’s reaction to San
Francisco car break-in: @AROD says
“several items that were of a personal nature and irreplaceable
with sentimental value were taken.” Bags, camera equipment, laptop,
and jewelry among items stolen from ESPN’s rental SUV. VIDEO

The perceived special treatment given to A-Rod’s case didn’t
go over well with some who had previously gotten the smash-and-grab
treatment in the City.

“lol. Never dusted for prints on my car…wait…they never
even showed!” Hans Kunisch tweeted.

Slightly Breezee tweeted directly at SFPD: “Watching the
coverage about the break in involving Alex Rodriguez and ESPN.
Police showed up and fingerprinted. I don’t know a single
resident who had this level of police involvement and we’ve all
been through this.”

Brad Nation brought his complaint straight to Mayor London
Breed: “How does the average SF resident get this level of
service for a car break-in ? It’s usually dial 311 and file a
complaint online.. #failedcity,” he tweeted.

“Last time my car was broken into in SF I legitimately had a
blood sample in the back seat,” Ben Godfrey wrote. “Took it to
@SFPDRichmond and asked to have it run. Their response, ‘do you
think this is CSI?’”

The guess here is that A-Rod sprung for that extra $10 to get full
coverage on his rental, or he’s covered by his American Express,
or whatever. No matter — we’re pretty sure he’s not going to
take a half-million dollar loss.

Sid Seixeiro of Sportsnet similarly wasn’t worried about
A-Rod’s financial well-being.

“Alex Rodriguez made $450 million dollars playing professional
baseball,” Seixeiro tweeted. “Someone stole $500,000 worth of
stuff from his car. I think he’ll find a way to move on.”

Irrelevant 2 Sense wasn’t having any of it: “I’m not at
all suggesting he deserves it, but it’s hard to empathize with
someone knowing he ROUTINELY had $500,000 worth of things IN HIS
CAR!!! $500,000!!!”
