Video shows burglar slamming car into San Francisco business, steals ‘$20K of lottery scratchers’

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — A 30-year veteran San Francisco business owner was robbed after a suspect drove a car into his storefront in an attempt to steal $10,000 worth of lottery scratchers.

It was the second time in two weeks.

“We don’t feel safe anymore,” said Elias Batshon.

Batshon and his wife Hanady own Sherman Market, a corner store off Union and Franklin in San Francisco.

“Every time we see a number on the phone… ‘Oh my God, that’s the alarm company.'”

Last week, a person drove a car into their storefront at 3:15 a.m. to break the door. In the moments that followed, surveillance footage showed the burglar run in and out carrying $10,000 worth of lottery scratchers.

“It’s seriously traumatizing for us,” Batshon said. “At night, I can’t sleep.”
