Belongings, including personal effects, medication, and other personal items which have been taken by the City in homeless encampment sweeps are disappearing, according to SF Weekly. An anonymous former DPW employee alleges that anything objectively valuable - such as electronics - are taken by DPW employees and pawned off at local flea markets on the weekend.
