A top San Francisco official in charge of cleaning up the citys notoriously filthy streets who has promoted portable public toilets to ease public urination has been arrested, jail records show.
San Francisco Public Works Director Mohammed Nuru was in custody Monday, along with Nick Bovis, the owner of Lefty O Douls, a popular sports bar in Fishermans Wharf.
Records say only that the men were arrested for felony safekeeping. The FBI and David L. Anderson, the U.S. Attorney in San Francisco, planned a Tuesday afternoon news conference.
Local news outlets reported that Nuru, 57, was arrested on suspicion of public corruption. The San Francisco Police Department directed questions to the U.S. attorneys office, which declined to comment ahead of the news conference.
As the top official in charge of the $312 million city public works budget since 2012, Nuru is tasked with cleaning up San Francisco streets, which critics note remain cluttered with feces, trash and used needles amid a homelessness crisis.
Nuru was first appointed to the department as deputy director under then-director Ed Lee, who later became mayor.
Nuru, who goes by MrCleanSF on Twitter, also oversees the design and construction of city facilities and 1,600 employees. Its capital project portfolio is more than $5.6 billion.

Maybe wanted to make it like his home country because, you know, he was homesick?
Heck of a job, Brownie.
Somebody had to pick up those unsightly piles of cash.
So, he dared to clean up the Poo?
Throw the book at him.
...Records say only that the men were arrested for felony safekeeping.
What is felony safekeeping?
Was he a phantom pooper looking to get job security?
What is that?
Was he stealing the poop and keeping it for himself?
Was more to it than that.
Not sure, but Muhammad had a $312 million annual budget to play with.
he did a crappy job...
Prolly get a promotion........
You mean Muslims lie and are corrupt? Who knew!
Another Democrat? Who’d a thunk?
What is felony safekeeping?....It’s collusion to keep safe money to Democrats?
A bit of searching via Google gave enough clues to deduce that the headline is semantically confusing. Apparently the poopomeister had Federal charges filed against him for corruption of some sort and was arrested by SF Police for safekeeping (i.e., keeping him from fleeing) on felony charges until the Feds could transfer him to a Federal facility. Two dozen TV and print news sources ALL reported the exact same story verbatim. Hive brain.
Hmm, interesting how this’ll all turn out; if reported.
Thanks for the research and posting the clarification. I was wondering myself what they were talking about.
I guess his $200,000+/year salary isn’t enough.
