SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Just days after Governor Newsom signed a bill creating an Organized Retail Task Force to crack down organized retail thefts, his family-owned wine shop in San Francisco may have been targeted by thieves, according to a report.
Police said the alarm sounded around 6:40 a.m. on Tuesday, at PlumpJack Wines & Spirits located at Greenwich and Fillmore streets. When officers arrived, they found a broken storefront window, but no suspects inside the store.

Newsom opened PlumpJack Wines & Spirits in 1992. Before taking office as governor in 2019, Newsom announced he would step away from his businesses and put his assets in a blind trust. The wine shop has since become part of a portfolio of companies, the PlumpJack Group, that includes restaurants, bars, retail and a resort hotel in Lake Tahoe.
