RV Battery Theft

We live on Carrisa Way. Just an FYI to neighbors and the network that on 9/21 between 5am and 4 pm someone stole the battery from our RV which is parked in our driveway. Just a shame! We have been vigilant about locking things up but didn't think to lock up the box that the battery sits in. We have had a trailer, boat or tent trailer for many years and this is the first time this has happened. A sign of the times I guess! I did submit on on-line report to the Sheriff's dept.

Truck Break-In

From Geoff:

Here’s what happened with my truck (2000 block of Ione): The thief had previously threatened on my website to come back and break into my truck. He made good on that threat last night.

At 12:40 am, a car turned onto Ione from northbound Eastern, made a u-turn and pulled up (lights out) next to my truck, which was parked on the street in front of my house.

He (or they) then climbed in the bed of the truck, broke out the rear center window of the cab and climbed in. He spent over 10 minutes destroying my dash to steal my stereo. He or they drove off at 12:50, only to return a few minutes later and park next to my truck again, this time leaving his headlights on but only staying for 3 minutes. He never got my stereo out of the truck. He got the unit out of the dash, but apparently couldn’t get the cables free. The only thing that I’m sure was taken was a silver Sony DSC-T1 digital camera (which doesn’t work).

Note that Geoff runs the site and that this break in is surely in retaliation for his work. Something is very wrong when criminals brazenly victimize lawful citizens trying to take back their neighorbhood.

Theft Ring this Weekend

From Geoff:

A tipster on my site has leaked that a group of students from Rio American HS are planning on commiting thefts in our area this weekend. One of them has been identified by several people as the person in my security video.

I'm currently traveling on the east coast, but I'll alert my fiancee to make sure everything is locked up tight. Perhaps an email to the DPM group would be prudent?

Still no response from the Sheriff's Department.

Neighbors, please keep a sharp eye out for anything unusual.
