Nancy Pelosi was sick when this ancient crime reappeared in San Francisco

San Francisco is generating headlines for all the wrong reasons again.

One crime no one thought was possible is returning to the waters near the city.

And Nancy Pelosi was sick when this ancient crime reappeared in San Francisco.

San Francisco has generated countless headlines in the national media for its growing crime problem.

Rampant shoplifting, open-air drug use, and homeless camps have become a part of everyday life in the City by the Bay.

Now San Francisco police are hoping that they’ve put a stop to crime that hasn’t been seen in America in more than a century.

San Francisco police arrest suspected pirates

Starting last summer, businesses and residents located on Embarcadero, the eastern waterfront of San Francisco, were terrorized by a group of local pirates.

“Last summer and fall, maritime burglars used small, stolen, or discarded boats to ransack large vessels and steal anything they could get their hands on. Then they would either sink the ships or dump whatever was left of the boat miles away in Oakland Harbor or along its shorelines,” the New York Post reported.

The group dubbed the “East Bay Pirates” were terrorizing houseboats, yachts, and businesses in the East Bay which is home to more than 3,000 boat slips. 

Some of the boat owners would chase them into the San Francisco Bay.

These pirates are believed to have come from one of the massive homeless encampments in nearby Oakland.

Residents sounded the alarm on these pirates at a San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission last year.

“The open shoreline of the (Oakland-Alameda) estuary is littered with sunken wrecks and derelict, end-of-life vessels, and crime has risen to truly intolerable levels,” former harbormaster Brock de Lappe said during an October meeting. “Multiple vessels have been stolen and ransacked. Victims have had to resort to personally confronting the criminals to recover their property without the benefit of police support. Is this an appropriate activity for a 79-year-old senior?”

A woman said she had to rescue a man in a sailboat whose ship drifted away after pirates cut the line securing it to the dock.

Resident Dan Hill told Fox News Digital that each raid by the pirates could cost a ship owner tens of thousands of dollars.

Pirates arrested with help from the coast guard

San Francisco’s piracy woes could be contained now that a task force made up of the Coast Guard, San Francisco, Oakland, and Alameda police was launched to protect the waterways.

The East Bay Pirates were arrested after they were caught on video breaking into a business.

Oakland Police discovered stolen goods on a boat while executing a search warrant.

Now the pirates are facing potential charges from the Alameda County District Attorney.

The lawless San Francisco area is seeing crimes return that would have been considered unthinkable in the 21st century.
