FOX & FRIENDS FIRST: BizFed’s Tracy Hernandez discusses smash-and-grabs

Share This :

Early this morning, I joined Carley Shimkus on Fox & Friends First to discuss Gov. Gavin Newsom’s newly unveiled $300 million plan to combat retail theft. I told her our massive network of more than 400,000 businesses appreciate the governor’s efforts to lean in with additional resources for law enforcement and prosecution, but I pointed to a contributing factor that funding alone will not solve.

“We have a problem here, especially in LA County, with our District Attorney George Gascón,” I explained on the live national program. “He’s not prosecuting! I have one BizFed member who’s had 100 thefts in the last month. Police have arrested the criminals but our DA has not prosecuted any of those 100 thefts.”
