Vista Neighborhood – Theft and Car Break-In

On 25 Feb, at 8 AM, a young African-American woman snatched a gardener’s satchel from a resident’s driveway on El Camino Real while she was being watched (!) by the gardener, who was no more than 25 yards away. She then jumped into an older bright red 2-door car and the driver sped off. RP didn’t get the license number, but called the high school anyway. PR’s think this car may pass through the neighborhood every morning, so will be on the lookout for the license number.

On 24 Feb, a locked van, parked in the back yard driveway on the corner of Nebraska and Tuolumne (across from St Basil’s) was broken into, and every piece of the owner electrician’s gear, including a laptop computer, was taken. Entry was by way of a fence from Hanns Lane. Van windows broken to gain access, and the perps even entered the nearby garage to steal big plastic bags to carry their loot.

They’re getting brazen.
