Louis Vuitton at Union Square in San Francisco was also “exhausted” by a group of thieves Friday night.

Dozens of other businesses in the area, including pharmacies and marijuana dispensaries in Oakland, were targeted by shoplifting crowds over the weekend.

“At least two dozen businesses have been affected,” Oakland Police Chief Leronne Armstrong CBS told SFC. “Vehicle caravans targeting marijuana operations, retail stores, pharmacies throughout Oakland.”

Governor Gavin Newsom weighs in on rampant crimes, calling them “unacceptable. Duration, full break.” He noted that the presence of police in the affected areas is increasing.

The Mayor of San Francisco, London Breed, meanwhile, has announced that the city will limit car access to Union Square, although details on the matter are unclear.

“We are going to make some changes to Union Square and how the cars will be able to access it.” The breed said in a press conference Saturday. “When you come to this area there is limited access to terms.”
