Police close in on vehicle burglars

-A A +A
By Tris DeRoma

Police said they are close to finding out who is behind a rash of car break-ins that occurred earlier this month.

The method has been to commit eight or more car break-ins within an hour, then disappear for a week.

The latest round of break-ins occurred a couple of weeks ago, where the would-be thieves hit four or five cars on Nov. 15, then did the same thing Nov. 20.

The Nov. 20 break-ins occurred within a three-block area of Oppenheimer Drive, and the Nov. 15 break-ins occurred within a three-block area of Camino Medio.

Both crime sprees occurred within a one-hour time period.

Acting Deputy Chief Randy Foster thinks these latest sprees are connected to the ones that happened earlier in the month.

“We’ve been following up on some leads and we’re hoping to make some arrests real soon,” Foster said. “We believe these are all being committed by the same people.”
