Sacramento County District Attorney Thien Ho announced Tuesday that his office has created a retail theft prosecution unit that includes a full-time investigator and a prosecutor who will work on cases from beginning to end.
Ho said he believes having officers focused on one specific case and then seeing it through to completion will help eradicate retail theft, a recurring problem in Sacramento and across much of California.

“We have a full-time investigator and a prosecutor who is assigned to prosecute those cases vertically … collaborating with our law enforcement partners in the investigation process, our business community, all the way to the prosecution and the conviction of the case,” Ho said.
