From the Cowan Group:
On Monday morning (April 7th) at 3:23 AM, a man was walking down Becerra Way (with a gas can) toward Whitney Ave, coming from the direction of Cowan. Shortly before he entered our driveway, a car turned onto Becerra from Whitney Ave. The driver saw the man walking, made a U turn down by Cowan, then stopped in front of our house and put their hazard lights on. The car then stayed there for a few minutes. The man ran away toward Whitney Ave. Before the car came back and stopped, the man had removed the gas cap on our truck and was attempting to syphon gas. The man was not successful. THANK YOU to the good Samaritan!! What perfect timing!! (We had just filled the tank the night before.)
It is a great feeling that the people in our neighborhood are staying aware, choosing to take action and looking out for each other. Much appreciated!
As always, if they try it in a nearby neighborhood, Del Paso Manor should be on the watch, too. With gas prices high again, it's likely we'll see similar things.
