A 60-year-old man was found guilty Thursday on 17 counts of burglary and elder abuse charges for targeting elderly Asian victims in Chinatown and Japantown in 2014.
Prosecutors argued that German Woods targeted elderly San Francisco residents at their homes. In some cases he snuck in as some held the front door and then made his way to the apartments of his victims. In a number of cases his victims were home when Woods broke in and burgled their homes.
The crimes involved seven victims, nearly all of whom were in their 70s or 80s.
No date for his sentencing has been scheduled.
Woods remains in County Jail in lieu of $3.27 million bail.
